Microsoft Azure is a collection of services that you can use to build and operate cloud-based
applications and IT infrastructure. Azure services are hosted in a global network of data centers that Microsoft technicians manage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and offer a 99.95 percent availability service-level agreement (SLA) for compute services.

Azure services enable you to:

  • Create and operate cloud-based applications by using a wide range of commonly used
    tools and frameworks.  Host workloads in the cloud on Azure PaaS services and IaaS infrastructure that consists of virtual machines and virtual networks.
  • Integrate cloud-based services with on-premises infrastructure.
    To use Azure services, you require a subscription. You can sign up for a subscription as an individual or as an organization, and then pay only for the services you use.
