THE MICROSOFT CLOUD – AZURE
Microsoft Azure is a collection of integrated cloud services—analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage, and web. Azure supports the broadest selection of operating systems, programming languages, frameworks, tools, databases and devices. Azure runs on a Worldwide Network of Microsoft-managed Datacenters across 22 regions. Azure can easily integrate with existing IT environments through the largest network of secure private connections, hybrid database and storage solutions, and data residency and encryption features. Azure’s pay-as-you-go services can quickly scale up or down to match demand. From small dev-test projects to global product launches, Azure is engineered to handle any workload. Azure is built on the familiar technologies: Windows Server, SQL Server, Active Directory, Hyper-V, and more.
Microsoft has leveraged its decades-long experience building enterprise software and running some of the world’s largest online services to create a robust set of security technologies and practices. These help ensure that Azure infrastructure is resilient to attack, safeguards user access to the Azure environment, and helps keep customer data secure through encrypted communications as well as threat management and mitigation practices, including regular penetration testing. Microsoft was the first major cloud provider to adopt the new international cloud privacy standard, ISO 27018.
