Use Microsoft Azure for a Range of Services:

Azure supports any operating system, language, tool, and framework— from Windows to Linux, SQL Server to Oracle, C# to Java. It puts the best of Windows and Linux ecosystems at your fingertips, so you can build great applications and services that work with every device across a variety of initiatives:

  • Websites - you can use Azure if you want to launch a website. You can develop the site using a wide range of different web application frameworks (like ASP.NET and Node.js) or using open source applications (like WordPress or Joomla).
  • Managed Azure servicesVirtual Machines - you can use Azure to run Windows or Linux virtual machines in the cloud. This is a great option if you need additional computer capacity for existing applications but you don’t want to add more servers to your own datacenter.
  • Mobile Services - Azure includes features that accelerate the development of mobile applications. You can easily incorporate user authentication using Windows Live, Facebook, Twitter, or Google.
  • Media - you can use Azure if you want to create, manage or distribute media. The platform provides functionality to protect content, to provide live or on-demand streaming of video and to convert media to various formats.
  • Cloud Services - you can use Azure to build or extend existing enterprise applications. Azure includes a services bus which enables integration with other applications, such as SAP.
  • Big Data - you can use Azure as a platform for enormous amounts of data (petabytes – thousands of terabytes, millions of gigabytes). With the built-in tools you can provide data warehousing and business intelligence solutions for improved business analytics.

Benefits of Microsoft Azure:

Adoption of Cloud Computing is increasing at a rapid rate by businesses and enterprises of all sizes; namely due to several compelling benefits. For Microsoft Azure, these include:

  • Faster time to market – allows you to focus upon your business application, not the underlying cloud infrastructure and platform. With Microsoft Azure, you can design, develop, implement and scale applications in a fraction of the time compared to managing everything on your own.
  • Reduced costs – a “pay-as-you-grow model” allows you to pay for only what you need, when you need it. In addition, the overall costs of a hosted model including managed services are most often lower than implementing/managing a solution in-house.
  • Increased scalability – quickly adjust capacity (up or down) according to your business fluctuations and needs. Never worry about running out of server capacity.
  • Enhanced flexibility and creativity – rapidly deploy and change applications to Microsoft Azure with no downtime. Free your mind (and time) to devote to applications, not the infrastructure running them.
