Microsoft Azure Platform

Azure is Microsoft’s Cloud computing offering to build and deploy applications on a pay-per-use basis.


Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables the quick build, deployment and management of applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacentres.

You can use this platform in many different ways. For instance, you can use Azure to build a web application that runs and stores its data in Azure datacentres. You can use Azure just to store data, with the applications that use this data running on-premises. You can use Azure to create virtual machines for development and test or to run SharePoint and other applications. You can use Azure to build massively scalable applications with lots and lots of users. Because the platform offers a wide range of services, all of these things-and more-are possible.

Azure is Microsoft’s cloud platform:

a growing collection of integrated services – compute, storage, data, networking, and app – that help you move faster, do more, and save money. But that’s just scratching the surface. With Azure you can:

Build infrastructure

Build Windows and Linux Virtual Machines in Azure and connect them to the resources that you use on-premises with virtual networking.

Develop modern applications

Build and deploy a wide variety of modern applications for Android, iOS, and Windows that take full advantage of the cloud-including web, mobile, media and line-of-business solutions. Automatically scale up and down to meet any need.

Gain insights from data

Azure provides managed SQL and NoSQL data services and built-in support for gaining insights from your data. Leverage the full power of SQL Server in the cloud and use HDInsight to build Hadoop clusters to analyze data.
