Open. Flexible. Rock Solid. The cloud for modern business.
Azure is an industry leading cloud platform that offers versatile, powerful and scalable solutions, tailored to your industry’s needs. Microsoft’s cloud platform is ranked by Gartner as an industry leader for both infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS). This unique combination allows managed and unmanaged services to work together creating easy to manage applications for increased productivity.
What makes Azure stand out against it's competition is the ability to provide enterprise-proven hybrid cloud solutions, allowing companies to decide how to balance their infrastructure and applications between the cloud and their premises. IT administrators can efficiently manage their cloud servers, data storage, backup and recovery economically and without added complexity.
The versatility does not stop here, as Microsoft's cloud platform can accomodate operating systems from Windows to Linux, databases from SQL to Oracle, from C# to Java applications. It offers great flexibility to set up your infrastructure with either Windows, Linux, or a combination of the 2 ecosystems and build applications and services for any environment or device.
Your business is granted with the priviledge to be hosted on the same enterprise-tested platform that hosts Microsoft's most important applications and services, like Skype, Office 365, Bing and Xbox. It offers a 99.95% availability SLA, 24x7 tech support and round-the-clock service health monitoring. The platform runs on a growing global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters across 13 regions, giving businesses a wide range of options for running applications and ensuring customers always get great performance. This level of availability allows your business to offer world class services. More than 57% of Fortune 500 companies chose Azure to run their business. The possibilities are endless, varying from live streaming Olympic events to multiplayer online games.
With Azure, companies can quickly scale up or down to match their ever-changing demands and only pay for what is used. By introducing per-minute billing, Microsoft has made a commitment to match competitor prices for popular infrastructure services like compute, storage and bandwidth, resulting in unbeatable price for performance.
Microsoft's consistent platform approach allows businesses to easily move between on-premises and the public cloud. In contrast with the competition, Azure uses the open VHD standard that allows easy moving of workloads from your datacenter to Azure, or a hosting service provider and back to on-premises. Microsoft Migration Accelerator can seamlessly convert and migrate active workloads from physical, VMware, Hyper-V and Amazon Web Services infrastructure, directly into Azure with nearly zero downtime. This allows your company make flexible plans when creating a strategy towards cloud solutions and infrastructure.
Always up, always on, economical and scalable. It’s everywhere.
