Extend your existing IT
You dont have to choose between your datacenter and the cloud. Azure easily integrates with your existing IT environment through the largest network of secure private connections, hybrid database and storage solutions, and data residency and encryption features — so your assets stay right where you need them.
Azure hybrid cloud solutions give you the best of both worlds: more IT options, less complexity and cost. More than 66 percent of Fortune 500 companies rely on Azure.
An open and flexible platform
Any developer or IT professional can be productive with Azure. The integrated tools, pre-built templates and managed services make it easier to build and manage enterprise, mobile, Web and Internet of Things (IoT) apps faster, using skills you already have and technologies you already know.
Scale as you need, pay as you go
Azure’s pay-as-you-go services can quickly scale up or down to match demand, so you only pay for what you use. Per-minute billing and a commitment to match competitor prices for popular infrastructure services like compute, storage and bandwidth mean you’re always getting unbeatable price for performance.
As the best cloud service from Microsoft, Azure runs on a worldwide network of Microsoft-managed datacenters across 22 regions—more countries and regions than Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud combined.
Make smarter decisions
Azure’s predictive analytics services, including Machine Learning, Cortana Analytics and Stream Analytics, are redefining business intelligence. Make smarter decisions, improve customer service and uncover new business possibilities from your structured, unstructured and streaming Internet of Things data.
Microsoft makes security and privacy a priority at every step, from code development through incident response. This ensures that Azure infrastructure is resilient to attack, safeguards user access, and keep your data secure via encrypted communications as well as threat management practices, including regular penetration testing.
