What is Microsoft Azure

Azure is massive, so that’s no easy answer. In it’s simplest form, it is a Cloud Computing Service, provided by Microsoft, but in reality, it is one of the biggest collections of online computing resources in the world.

Azure changes constantly, adding, modifying and sometimes removing services. These range from –

  • Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas)
    • Servers
    • Storage
    • Networks
  • Platform as a Service (Paas)
    • All of Iaas plus
    • Operating Systems
    • Analytics and Management Systems
  • Software as a Service (Saas)
    • All of Paas plus
    • Hosted Applications
