What is Microsoft Azure?
Small and midsize businesses want the power and flexibility to run their business anywhere. That’s why they are turning to the cloud to help move their business forward. The question is which cloud solution offers the best services to meet your specific needs?
Microsoft Azure offers agility along with an open cloud platform, helping you grow your business with greater efficiency and be more responsive to change. With Azure, you can quickly get up and running, scale up or down as needed, and avoid high capital costs—paying only for what you use. Azure also works seamlessly with other Microsoft software and services, such as Windows Server, SQL Server, Exchange, and SharePoint, helping you back up and keep your most important company information safe.
Host your applications: Azure enables you to quickly and easily move your apps from onsite servers to the cloud. This migration helps you avoid the cost of purchasing new server hardware. The cloud infrastructure helps you easily scale up or down as needed and pay per use. You also get the added protection of multiple data backups in the geographies you choose.
Back up your data: Azure offers simple, reliable backup for your data and apps. By eliminating typical infrastructure costs associated with storage, you end up paying only for the storage you use. Plus there are no per-server or data transfer fees. In addition, you can be confident that your Azure-hosted apps receive the same level of protection chosen by Microsoft enterprise customers, including many of the world’s largest financial institutions.
Host your website: With Azure, you can quickly and easily host scalable websites in the cloud. Microsoft uses global datacenters, helping provide you and your customers with a reliable, satisfying, and secure experience without the need to invest in costly infrastructure. Secure your organization: With Microsoft and its worldwide datacenters, you receive a level of data protection and physical security that far exceeds typical on-premises firewall protection.
