Build Windows and Linux Virtual Machines in Azure and connect them to the resources that you use on-premises with virtual networking.
Manage user accounts, synchronize with existing on-premises directories, and get single sign on across Azure, Office 365 and hundreds of popular software-as-a-service applications including Salesforce, DocuSign, Google Apps, Box, Dropbox, and more.
Build and deploy a wide variety of modern applications for Android, iOS, and Windows that take full advantage of the cloud—including web, mobile, media and line-of-business solutions. Automatically scale up and down to meet any need.
Azure provides managed SQL and NoSQL data services and built-in support for gaining insights from your data. Leverage the full power of SQL Server in the cloud and use HDInsight to build Hadoop clusters to analyze data.
Azure is a great solution to enable single sign-on across your cloud applications and integrate with your on-premises Active Directory to provide access to Office 365 and Dynamics CRM, among others.
Azure provides scalable, durable cloud storage, backup and recovery solutions for any data, big and small. It works with the infrastructure you already have to cost-effectively enhance your business continuity strategy. It also provides the storage required by your cloud applications, including: unstructured text or binary data, such as: video, audio and images.
SQL Server is certified, supported and optimized to run on Azure, making Azure the ideal choice for hosting SQL Server databases and for SQL Server disaster recovery and backup.
Deploying Microsoft enterprise applications is easy on Azure Virtual Machines. Whether you’re deploying SharePoint, Dynamics or System Center, you get great stability, performance and guidance when running on Azure. Azure’s flexible technical support plans and world-class support team also have your back—from Microsoft application to cloud infrastructure.
Any number of Microsoft Azure virtual machines and cloud services can share file data across application components via mounted shares, and on-premises applications can access file data in a share via the File storage API. Since a File storage share is a standard SMB 2.1 file share, applications running in Azure can access data in the share via file I/O APIs. Developers can therefore leverage their existing code and skills to migrate existing applications.
Azure Premium Storage is a new SSD based storage offering low latency and high throughput. It is designed to support demanding enterprise workload in the cloud.
Azure Premium storage automatically replicates your data to help guard against unexpected hardware failures and make sure it is available when you need it. Azure Durability of data is of utmost importance for persistent storage. Azure customers have critical applications that depend on the persistence of their data and high tolerance against failures. That’s why Premium Storage keeps three replicas of data within the same region.
