What is Microsoft Azure

These days, although cloud computing is the most popular way of managing IT resources, plenty of companies are still concerned about migrating over to it.

There are fears about security, downtime, and availability, all of which keep some companies standing still, staying with tech that is fast going obsolete.

This is where Microsoft Azure steps into the picture.

Microsoft has one of the fastest growing networks of data centers in the world and Azure is their way of leveraging that network to provide a cloud platform that lets anyone build services or applications, deploy them and manage them easily.

Azure provides cloud computing capabilities to your network using PaaS (Platform as a Service) or you could go the whole hog and hand your entire network and computing needs over to Microsoft to manage for you using IAAS (Infrastructure as a Service).

Regardless of the option you chose, Azure provides reliable and secure access to data, along with a range of products that is ever expanding to meet the needs of its clients, all through a simple, easy to manage platform.

So, what does Azure do?
