Microsoft in the cloud
Cloud services, hybrid operations – and more
Why Microsoft Azure?
Offering Infrastructure, platform and software as a service, Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing offering. Particularly popular with enterprise-class operations, Azure provides many of the same familiar Microsoft technologies that IT professionals have used on premises for years.
With extensive services and features, building a secure Cloud and hybrid deployment with Azure is dramatically simplified.
Flexibility and Scalability
Microsoft claims that an application can scale from 10 to 10 million users without any additional coding.
You can allocate and deallocate additional resources automatically as demand fluctuates, ensuring consistently high performance of your cloud-based applications and services.
Superior hybrid functionality
A unified identity platform to simplify integration & management of resources using Microsoft technologies. This allows you to build solutions that operate in the Cloud, on premises, at the network edge using the same code base & security provisions. Users benefit from a consistent experience, you benefit from simplified administration & security.
Azure Identity & Access Management is handled by Azure Active Directory which can be integrated with on-premise domains for end-to-end security. Data stored in Azure can also be encrypted in transit and at rest, improving your cloud security posture and compliance attainments.
Microsoft offers a selection of advanced technologies designed to unleash the full power of the Cloud. As well as support for SQL and NoSQL databases, there are tools for machine learning (ML), bots and cognitive APIs designed to help you unlock additional value from your data sets.
Familiar development technologies
By supporting familiar tools like Visual Studio, ASP.NET, C# and C++, the Azure learning curve is significantly reduced. Your development team can begin building cloud-native (or hybrid) applications immediately, reducing time to ROI.
