Microsoft Azure – The Cloud For Business
In the past, expensive hardware upgrades was a part of doing business as usual. With virtualization, the face of computing and how businesses managed growth changed overnight. Microsoft Azure is a growing collection of integrated cloud services—analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage, and web—for moving faster, achieving more, and saving money.
Deploying resources to fit the exact size of your business at any given time.
How Azure Impacts Your Operations:
Azure cloud service supports the same technologies millions of developers and IT professionals already rely on and trust.
Some cloud providers make you choose between your datacenter and the cloud. Not Azure, which easily integrates with your existing IT environment through the largest network of secure private connections, hybrid database and storage solutions, and data residency and encryption features — so your assets stay right where you need them.
And with Azure Stack, you can bring the Azure model of application development and deployment to your datacenter. Azure hybrid cloud solutions give you the best of both worlds: more IT options, less complexity and cost. It’s why it’s one of the best cloud computing services available.
Azure’s pay-as-you-go services can quickly scale up or down to match demand, so you only pay for what you use. Per-minute billing and a commitment to match competitor prices for popular infrastructure services like compute, storage and bandwidth mean you’re always getting unbeatable price for performance.
We know some organizations are still wary of the cloud. That’s why Microsoft has made an industry-leading commitment to the protection and privacy of your data. Azure was recognized by the European Union’s data protection authorities for our commitment to rigorous EU privacy laws.
Microsoft was also the first major cloud provider to adopt the new international cloud privacy standard, ISO 27018. Azure Government, a stand-alone version of Azure, was designed to meet the rigorous compliance requirements of U.S. public agencies.
As the best cloud service from Microsoft, Azure runs on a worldwide network of Microsoft-managed datacenters across 22 regions—more countries and regions than Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud combined.
This fast-growing global footprint gives you lots of options for running applications and ensuring great customer performance. Azure is also the first multinational cloud provider in mainland China.
Azure’s predictive analytics services, including Machine Learning, Cortana Analytics and Stream Analytics, are redefining business intelligence.
Make smarter decisions, improve customer service and uncover new business possibilities from your structured, unstructured and streaming Internet of Things data.
