Next Generation Cloud Platform For All Your Business Needs
Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud computing services to help businesses manage challenges and meet their organizational goals. It gives you the freedom to build, manage and deploy applications on a massive, global network using your preferred tools and frameworks. With Azure, you can be ready for future by developing today and your product visions for tomorrow. You can operate hybrid seamlessly On-premises, in the cloud and at the edge by integrating and managing your environment with tools and services for hybrid cloud. With Azure, you are free to build on your terms. Azure has built-in security controls and unique intelligence you need to identify and protect against rapidly evolving threats. With datacenters in more regions than any other cloud provider, Azure provides a global reach with local presence that many businesses and organisations need, allowing them to reduce the cost, the time and the complexity of operating a global infrastructure while meeting local data residency needs.
Lower cost: Cloud computing eliminates the expense of setting up and running on-site datacenters,
Higher security: Cloud providers offers technologies and controls to secure your data, apps and infrastructure from threats.
Increased productivity: Cloud providers continuously update their datacenter networks with the latest-generation hardware, providing you with fast, efficient computing resources.
Global scale: Cloud computing runs on data centers around the world, providing overall resiliency and reliability by allowing your data to be backed up in more than one geographic location.
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is an instant computing infrastructure, operated and managed over the internet. IaaS quickly scales up and down with demand, letting you pay only for what you use. It helps you avoid the expense and complexity of buying and managing your own physical servers and other datacenter infrastructure. Each resource is offered as a separate service component, and you only need to rent a particular one for as long as you need it.
Platform as a service (PaaS)
Platform as a service (Paas) is a complete development and deployment environment in the cloud, with resources that enable you to deliver everything from simple cloud-based apps to sophisticated, cloud-enabled enterprise applications. You purchase the resources you need from a cloud service provider on a pay-as-you-go basis and access them over a secure Internet connection. Like IaaS, PaaS includes infrastructure of servers, storage and networking in addition to middleware, development tools, business intelligence (BI) services, database management systems and more. It supports the complete web application lifecycle: building, testing, deploying, managing and updating. PaaS allows you to manage the applications and services you develop and the cloud service provider typically manages everything else.
Software as a service (SaaS)
Software as a service (SaaS) enables your organization to connect to cloud-based applications and use them over the Internet. SaaS provides a complete software solution which you purchase on a pay-as-you-go demand, typically on a subscription basis from a Microsoft partner. You rent the use of an app for your organisation and your users connect to it over the Internet, usually with a web browser. With SaaS, cloud providers host and manage the software application and underlying infrastructure and handle any maintenance, like software upgrades and security patching. SaaS allows your organisation to get quickly up and running with an app at minimal upfront cost.
Serverless computing enables developers to build applications faster by eliminating the need for them to manage infrastructure. With serverless applications, the cloud service provider automatically provisions, scales and manages the infrastructure required to run the code. Serverless computing helps teams increase their productivity and bring products to market faster and it allows organisations to better optimise resources and stay focused on innovation.
