Microsoft Azure – Key Business Solutions
What is Microsoft Azure?
What is Azure? In short, it’s Microsoft’s cloud platform: a growing collection of integrated services-compute, storage, data, networking, and app-that help you move faster, do more, and save money.Azure is an Internet-scale computing and services platform hosted in data centers managed or supported by Microsoft. It includes many separate features with corresponding developer services which can be used individually or together.
According to a study from The Boston Consulting Group, technology leaders far outperformed their peers in the marketplace. Yet with the fast pace of innovation, how can anyone afford to keep investing in the latest and greatest solutions? At the same time, how can anyone afford not to, knowing your competitors may get ahead while you rely on older solutions?
With Microsoft Azure you can gain a competitive edge and keep your business moving forward without breaking the bank. Azure helps you bring products and services to market quickly. You can run your operations more cost-effectively, paying only for what you use, not for what you don’t. And you can free-up the budget to spend on other business needs by eliminating costly infrastructure and server hardware.
Choose your own path to the “modern business”, with a flexible cloud platform that offers the following features:
- A 99.95% monthly SLA
- Enterprise-level security used by many of the world’s largest organizations today
- The ability to use any language, framework, or tool to build applications
- Unlimited servers and storage
Only Microsoft offers a flexible platform that lets you choose the path that’s best for your business, whether that’s on-premises, in the cloud, or a hybrid combination. Azure is a core part of this overall vision that helps you make the cloud a seamless part of your IT.
