Azure is Microsoft’s cloud platform- a collection of integrated services including —compute, storage, data, networking, and applications. Azure is the only cloud platform ranked by Gartner as an industry leader for both infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS). With Azure, data storage, backup, and recovery become more efficient and economical. It is also easier to build applications that span both on-premises and the cloud.
Microsoft Azure supports any operating system, language, tool, and framework. Azure offers a 99.95% availability SLA, 24×7 tech support, and round-the-clock service health monitoring.
Azure can quickly scale up or down to match demand, so you only pay for what you use. Azure runs on a growing global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters across 13 regions, giving you a wide range of options for running applications and ensuring your customers always get great performance.
