Microsoft Azure is one of the world's top three cloud providers. It is used by small startups as well as industry giants. Azure has many built-in services that can be used to create a system of any size. Today on the company blog, we're going to talk about what Microsoft Azure is, what it's good for, where it's being used and why Microsoft Azure is on everyone's lips.

Microsoft Azure is a cloud platform that allows you to develop, run applications and store data on servers in data centres around the world. Users get access to servers with operating systems, software development and testing tools, and various services.

Azure is designed to simplify the process of building modern applications. It will help to create scalable and reliable applications. Azure supports the most popular programming languages, including Python, JavaScript, Java, .NET and Go.

Microsoft Azure: how it works and what it is used for

How Microsoft Azure works
Microsoft Azure is based on running a virtual machine for each application instance. The developer specifies the required storage capacity and compute power (number of virtual machines), and the platform delivers the resources. If the initial resource requirements change, the platform allocates additional resources to the application or reduces unused datacentre resources according to the new customer requirement.

Microsoft Azure is a set of remote computing services (servers, software, storage) that can be accessed from anywhere in the world. And you can work with Azure not only in the IaaS scenario, i.e. using the IT infrastructure without investing in your own server equipment, but also in the PaaS scenario. The second option means you can develop and manage your own web services, mobile applications and software in the cloud.
Microsoft Azure offers more than 600 out-of-the-box services. They are divided into 21 categories, including DevOps, analytics, containers, virtual and augmented reality, Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) services, security services, and others. For each service, there is detailed documentation describing the functionality and usage scenarios.

Azure services can be simple web services to host your business in the cloud, or fully virtualised computers to run custom software solutions.

Examples of products based on Microsoft Azure:
- Azure Active Directory is an access management tool. It helps organise employee logins and access to resources.
- Microsoft Azure Storage helps to create backups. The tools provide compatibility at the server and database level. This allows developers and administrators to run copies of the site directly from the cloud.
- Microsoft Azure Media Services simplifies working with media files. It helps you reduce the cost of streaming and broadcasting.

Microsoft Azure is an ever-expanding suite of cloud services that helps your organisation solve business problems. It's the freedom to build, deploy and manage applications across a vast global network using your favourite tools and platforms.
We help business people manage their resources efficiently and systematically achieve success.
