Azure is a cloud computing service offered by Microsoft for running IT applications.
Users subscribe to resources such as compute, storage, network etc and usually pay on monthly basis. (Very often, CFOs like this OPEX model, as opposed to the CAPEX model when their organizations purchase hardware or software upfront.) On the virtual servers created on Azure platform, users can install different Operating Systems such as Windows Server and various flavours of Linux.
Microsoft Azure is hosted in different regions, so users can choose one most suitable for their IT operations.
How does Microsoft Azure work?
Besides subscribing to Azure, organization will also have to consider how to manage the resources purchased. If there is limited IT expertise in-house, evaluate the possible engagement of a cloud managed services provider.
