Windows Azure provides developers with on-demand compute and storage services to host, scale, and manage web applications on the internet through Microsoft® datacenters.

        Windows Azure is a flexible platform that supports multiple languages and integrates with your existing on-premises environment. To build applications and services on Windows Azure, developers can use their existing Microsoft Visual Studio® expertise.
