Application Development & Hosting
Windows Azure is Microsoft’s operating system for the cloud. It lets your applications scale up or down depending on the demands of your business. Free your developers to flex their creative muscles on a platform that already speaks their language - .Net, PHP, Java or Ruby. Wherever their creativity take them, in the language they need, from any place they choose—they have the power. Plus with a pay-for-use business model, you won’t be wasting your money on services you thought you might need but never got around to using. Now that’s a win-win situation. That’s cloud power.
Powerful and Practical Platform
Your developers don’t need to learn new tools or a new platform to harness the benefits of cloud power. With Windows Azure, you can easily move existing applications to the cloud and your developers can create new applications and services using technology they already know and trust.
You are the living definition of a multi-tasker. Windows Azure gives you the agility to take advantage of multiple application development tools, automated service management, and global datacenter presence to respond faster to customer needs, focus on your competitive differentiators, and reach new markets.
Freedom to Choose
Your IT department is the decision maker now. Windows Azure empowers them to choose where and how they manage, deploy, and store data, while you focus on business challenges and customer needs.
Your Developers are already multilingual. Why make them learn a new language? With Windows Azure, they can create and manage applications and services utilizing familiar languages such as .NET, Java, PHP and Ruby.
You’re a reliability machine. So is cloud computing from Microsoft. With 99.9%+ uptime and 24/7 support your cloud power never runs out.
Security & Privacy
We know security is top of mind when it comes to the cloud. That’s why we designed Windows Azure from the word “go” to live, breathe, and teach the meaning of security enhancements
- Azure contains a risk-based program that hunts down and labels security and operational threats.
- Azure keeps a detailed set of security controls updated and maintained at all times.
- Azure operates a compliance framework that helps ensure your controls are designed correctly and operating as they should be.
When you switch to cloud power you can rest easy. Our 99.9%+ uptime guarantee means a steady stream of power is pumped directly into your business and includes 24/7 support if anything ever does go wrong.
Microsoft provides the most comprehensive approach to cloud computing, so that you can harness the full power of the cloud on your terms. Whether in your datacenter, with a service provider, or from Microsoft’s datacenters – and whether in a private cloud, public cloud, or software as a service environment – Microsoft provides the flexibility and control to consume IT as a Service whichever way best meets your unique business needs.
Here’s how we’re different. Microsoft helps ensure your path to the future by providing familiar and consistent technologies for cloud computing. Only Microsoft delivers cloud computing across public and private cloud environments with shared components – identity, management, development tools – to ensure that the investments you make today move you ahead in the future. Building on current investments and IT skillsets you already have, you have the power of cloud computing within your reach today.
