Microsoft’s cloud computing platform Azure, launched in February 2010. It is an open and flexible platform used for building, testing, deploying, and managing virtual machines, object storage, and content delivery networks (CDNs) through a global network of Microsoft-managed data centers in 42 regions around the world and includes open-source, standards-based technologies and proprietary solutions from Microsoft. According to Synergy Research Group, the market is growing rapidly (cloud sales are at $7.9 billion – 17% growth over the year before) and Azure is currently the second biggest cloud provider with 13% of the market, behind Amazon at 33%. It services include Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and supports numerous programming languages, tools and frameworks. The advantage of using cloud services like Azure is that there are no upfront costs for physical hardware, that Azure services are scalable and you can instantly provision computing resources on demand. Azure’s billing structure is the pay-as-you-go model; based on resources used such as CPU, storage, and consumption, which is similar to Amazon Web Services.

Here is a list of some of the more important services that Azure has to offer:
