With an increasingly higher number of organizations pursuing digital strategies, businesses are shifting from legacy systems to the cloud based solutions. Most of them are shifting to Microsoft Azure cloud and as shown by various surveys, its usage has increased tremendously.
“Microsoft is the most-used Public Cloud and the most likely to be purchased or renewed” – a study done by Cowen and Company Equity Research and reported by Forbes.
This Azure momentum has been possible because of what Azure offers and stands for – a comprehensive and secure Cloud platform across PaaS and IaaS, offering benefits like first-class support for Linux and open-source tooling, unparalleled integration with Office 365, unique hybrid experience with Azure Stack and a robust geo-spread infrastructure.
Large enterprises as well as small companies, all are leveraging Azure to optimize their cloud use, fuel business growth and reinvent themselves.
Below are just some of the capabilities that Microsoft Azure offers and business benefits of using Azure that every organization requires to succeed in this cloud first world.
Quick provisioning of Virtual Machines
Azure gives businesses the capability to create virtual machines – Windows or Linux, in just few minutes and a choice to select them either from Azure Market place templates or from own VM images. These VMs help businesses to host their apps and services as if hosted in their own data center environment.
Managed relational SQL database services
This cloud database service by Azure enables easy building of apps and their management too. It allows businesses to work in their preferred development environment – tools and platform. SQL databases help businesses to minimize their hardware, software expenses, other overheads and the need for in-house expertise.
App service of Azure makes it easier for businesses to create and deploy enterprise grade applications worldwide, on all devices or for popular platforms. This quick creation helps companies automate business processes faster and respond quickly to the ebb and flow of business, which in turn saves their time and money simultaneously. They can also manage production, testing and deployment of web applications that have the capability to scale on demand of the businesses.
