Microsoft Azure is a cloud services operating system that serves as the development, service hosting and service management environment for the Microsoft Azure platform.
Microsoft Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. You can build applications using any language, tool or framework. And you can integrate your public cloud applications with your existing IT environment.
Microsoft Azure delivers a 99.95% monthly 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.
Microsoft Azure enables 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.
Microsoft sells through authorised partners, who are skilled in the use of Microsoft technologies to resolve business challenges. Microsoft Partners include Small Business Specialists, who specialise in helping start up and small-to-medium businesses tackle their business challenges through IT solutions.
