Microsoft Azure is a public cloud computing platform that delivers cloud services including:
Businesses choose Azure because it’s a flexible, fast, and affordable alternative to traditional IT services. Here’s why it’s a popular choice among business owners:
You can run IT services on-premises. But Azure runs them through the cloud (or the Internet). This cuts down on your need for physical space, hardware, and even some software programs.
Microsoft Azure cloud services cover everything from networks to app development to email. And nearly everything in between. Here are some common ways companies use Azure cloud services to their advantage:
Azure empowers you to drive more resources to other areas of your business. Plus, you get to save money along the way.
Azure offers a comprehensive selection of features. They're perfect for any business, of any size.
Azure stores back up and recovers your data with up to 99 years of retention. Plus, Azure makes three copies of your data and stores them in different secure locations. So no matter what happens, you know your data won’t get lost or destroyed.
The cloud elasticity feature scales resources to match needs. It happens automatically without disrupting operations or charging for what you don't use. It’s an efficient approach to cloud computing and it doesn’t rely on technicians — Azure is automatic.
Use Azure’s developer tools to build cloud applications on any platform and in any language. Easily build, test, launch, and manage cloud apps in an integrated development environment.
Since you only pay for the services you need and use, Azure is an affordable IT service solution. Instead of having your own data centers, servers, and other IT must-haves, use Azures.
Use Azure Portal Search to find resources, services, and documentation in seconds. You can also customize the Azure Resource Manager to organize and categorize resources. Plus, it’s easy to control who can access cloud resources.

IaaS provides the foundation for most other IT services. It includes the basic building blocks like servers, storage, networking, and security. Companies use these services to replace or supplement in-house IT solutions.
PaaS includes everything IaaS provides, but with a few extras. Operating systems, dev tools, and database management are common PaaS services. Most businesses use these services to create, test, and launch web and mobile apps.
