Microsoft Azure, or simply Azure, is a continually growing powerful cloud computing service officially released in February 2010. Azure provides a set of cloud services that help businesses accurately respond to today’s challenges. Microsoft’s cloud offers flexibility in creating, deploying, and managing applications in a global network using one’s favorite tools and frameworks. Get to know Azure cloud-managed services for your business.
Azure cloud services
Microsoft Azure cloud services power operations of 95% of Fortune 500 companies and countless SMEs. A strong argument for betting on the Azure cloud is security. Cybersecurity is a key aspect of every business, and Microsoft does not compromise here. Azure cloud with complementary services and compliance products guarantees the highest standard for security and privacy. Each year, the tech giant invests $1 billion to protect customer data from cyber threats.
Still, security isn’t the only argument why companies are betting on Azure cloud services. Similar to the .NET Platform, Azure consists of a whole range of services and tools for developers to ease operations and handle the most demanding business cases. One can develop and scale new applications or run existing ones in the public cloud. Tools for Azure cloud support all industries: retail & e-commerce, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, and the aforementioned Fortune 500.
Azure cloud computing services
Cloud services Azure offers can be found in four different forms of cloud computing:
- Infrastructure as a service (IaaS),
- Platform as a service (PaaS),
- Software as a service (SaaS),
The flexibility provided in Azure is another argument for why so many businesses trusted this cloud. Microsoft charges for Azure on a pay-as-you-go basis, meaning that subscribers receive a monthly bill that invoices them only for specific resources used. Cloud services are a convenient and secure option for hosting and scaling software.
Azure-based solutions for any business case
Azure delivers 200+ services, divided into categories. These classifications include computing, networking, hosting, IoT, migration, mobility, analytics, containers & virtual machines, artificial intelligence & machine learning, integration, management & dev tools, security, databases, DevOps, media identity, and web services.
A broad pool of cloud computing services was developed to respond to a diverse range of business needs that may arise. Moving to a hybrid cloud like Azure is a future-proof move to scale a business that already has its objectives or is about to formulate them.
Azure supports multiple programming languages, including Java, Node.js, and C#. Overall, with the aim of making the developers’ work easier and providing as much flexibility as possible at every step of the process of complex software development and maintenance.
