Microsoft Azure is an open, flexible, enterprise-grade cloud computing platform. Move faster, do more and save money with IaaS + PaaS.
90% of Fortune 500 companies trust the Microsoft Cloud, and so can you. Azure helps to protect your assets through a rigorous methodology and focus on security, privacy, compliance and transparency.
You can deploy virtual machines to Azure to do anything you would do with physically hosted servers and networking equipment. Create virtual networks, sync with your on-premise Active Directory, host web servers, application and database servers.
Azure also offers a continually-growing suite of PaaS (Platform as a Service) offerings, which means you don't need to provision machines and you can quickly (and in many cases automatically) scale up or down as required to meet demand.
Services include: -
- SQL Azure databases
- Cloud services
- App services
- API Management
- Traffic Manager
- Availability Sets
- Analysis services
