What is this Azure Everyone is Talking About?

While this is not a new platform from Microsoft it has been gaining a lot of attention and for good reason! Azure is Microsoft’s operating system for cloud computing and the myriad of tools within the platform is impressive.  Azure offers over 200 products and cloud services designed to help you solve today’s challenges and create the future. Build, run and manage applications across multiple clouds, on-premises and at the edge, with the tools and frameworks of your choice.

Is Azure Safe?

Security and privacy are foundational for Azure. Microsoft is committed to the highest levels of trust, transparency, standards conformance, and regulatory compliance – with the most comprehensive set of compliance offerings of any cloud service provider.

How can Azure help if I outsource my IT?

IT partners use Azure to deploy, manage and support customers’ existing solutions, and to offer ready-made or custom solutions. Ask your IT partner how your organization can take advantage of Azure to meet your business goals. Or, find an Azure partner that fits your needs. Explore a wide network of partners with verified Azure capabilities.

Is it only for Windows apps and services?

No. Azure supports open source technologies, so you can use the tools and technologies you prefer. Run virtually any application using your data source, with your operating system, on your device. With Azure, you have choices.

Will Azure work for my industry?

Azure provides solutions for all industries, through proven combinations of cloud products and services. Address your industry-specific business challenges today, and prepare for the future by innovating with Azure solutions.

How does Azure compare to other clouds?
