Microsoft Azure Cloud IT Calgary

What is Microsoft Azure?

Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, a growing collection of integrated services—analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage, and web—for moving faster, achieving more, and saving money.

As the cloud application platform for Microsoft, Azure is essential for small and mid-sized businesses with data storage needs that overcome on-premises server capabilities.

With support with many different programming languages and frameworks, Windows Azure is one of the most powerful cloud development platforms available.

There are nine different services available through Windows Azure, including:

  • Websites

  • Virtual Machines

  • Cloud Services

  • Data Management

  • Business Analytics

  • Identity

  • Messaging

  • Media Services

  • Mobile Services



It’s open and flexible

Azure supports the broadest selection of operating systems, programming languages, frameworks, tools, databases and devices. Azure supports the same technologies millions of developers and IT professionals already rely on and trust.

It works with existing IT

Some cloud providers make you choose between your datacenter and the cloud. Not Azure, which 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. You can even run Azure in your own datacenter with Azure Stack. Azure’s hybrid cloud solutions give you the best of both worlds: more IT options, less complexity and cost.

It's everywhere

Azure runs on a worldwide network of Microsoft-managed datacenters across 19 regions—more countries and regions than Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud combined. This fast-growing global footprint gives you lots of options for running applications and ensuring great customer performance. Azure is also the first multinational cloud provider in mainland China.

It’s economical and scalable

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 means you’re always getting unbeatable price for performance.

It enables you to unlock insights

Azure's predictive analytics services like Machine Learning, Power BI 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.
