Microsoft Azure


Windows Azure was released on 1 February 2010. Microsoft Azure (earlier known as Windows Azure before 25 March 2014) is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure, which has been designed and developed by Microsoft, for building, deploying and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-Managed datacenters. It provides both PaaS and IaaS services and supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems.

Microsoft Azure is an integrated operating system for cloud computing that facilitates the management of scalable Web applications over the Internet. The hosting and management environment is maintained at Microsoft data centers. Microsoft Azure is similar to but distinct from Windows Server, which is intended for onsite hosting and management. As with other technologies for cloud computing, Microsoft Azure is intended to simplify IT management and minimize up-front and ongoing expenses. 

Microsoft Azure can be used to create, distribute and upgrade Web applications without the need to maintain expensive, often underutilized resources onsite. New Web services and applications can be written and debugged with a minimum of overhead and personnel expense. New capabilities can be added "on the fly" to existing packaged applications. The Azure operating system is the central component of the company's Azure Services Platform, which also includes separate application, security, storage and virtualization service layers and a desktop development environment.
