Azure is a powerful combination of managed, and unmanaged, services, which enable you to build, deploy, and manage applications any way you like for unmatched productivity.
With Azure, you can:
Have a Hybrid-ready solution, giving you the best of both worlds, expanding your IT options without added complexity. With Azure, data storage, backup, and recovery become more efficient and economical. It’s also easier to build applications that span both on-premises and the cloud.
Support any platform, 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.
Be always on, by sharing the same enterprise-tested platform that powers Skype, Office 365, Bing, and Xbox. Azure offers a 99.95% availability SLA, and enables you to build and run highly available applications without focusing on the infrastructure. It provides automatic OS and service patching, built in network load balancing and resiliency to hardware failure. And with Greencorn, you can be guaranteed the support you need, and ongoing service health monitoring.
Build and scale your applications, enabling you to use any language, framework, or tool to build applications. Features and services are exposed using open REST protocols. Microsoft Azure also enables you to easily scale your applications to any size. It is a fully automated self-service platform that allows you to provision resources within minutes and elastically grow or shrink your resource usage based on your needs.
