What is Microsoft Azure?
Microsoft Azure is a comprehensive cloud platform that enables solutions based on individual challenges and needs - with the benefits of a public cloud service. Fast, secure and cost-effective.
Azure can be described as a growing collection of integrated cloud services that developers and IT professionals can use to build, deploy, and manage applications through a global network of datacenters. With Azure, you get the freedom to build and deploy wherever you want, using the tools, applications, and frameworks of your choice.
You can store data using relational SQL databases, NoSQL table stores, and unstructured blob storages, and optionally use Hadoop and business intelligence services to data-mine it. You can take advantage of Microsoft Azure’s robust capabilities to enable scalable distributed applications, as well as deliver hybrid solutions that run across a cloud and on-premise enterprise environment. Microsoft Azure’s distributed caching and CDN services allow you to reduce latency and deliver great application performance anywhere in the world.
