Microsoft Azure: Cloud Computing Platform & Services
What is Azure?
Microsoft Azure is a growing collection of integrated cloud services that developers and IT professionals use to build, deploy, and manage applications through the global network of Azure data centers. With Azure, you get the freedom to build and deploy wherever you want, using the tools, applications, and frameworks of your choice.
Deploy anywhere with your choice of tools
Choose how you deploy Azure, connecting cloud and on-premises with consistent hybrid cloud capabilities and using open source technologies, for maximum portability and value from your existing investments.
Build your apps, your way
Use the tools and open source technologies you already know and trust, because Azure supports a broad selection of operating systems, programming languages, frameworks, databases, and devices.
Extend on-premises data and apps
Azure offers hybrid consistency everywhere: in application development, management and security, identity management, and across the data platform.
Deploy the cloud on-premises
Bring Azure capabilities to your data center with Azure Stack. Leverage the Azure portal, PowerShell, and DevOps tools experience and app model across the cloud and on-premises.
