Windows Azure

Azure offers enterprise-grade storage solutions for on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments with enhanced security and governance.

Azure’s hybrid storage options offer cloud storage solutions that integrate with your datacenter, so you can take full advantage of elasticity and lower costs in the cloud while leveraging on-premises performance.

The Microsoft hybrid cloud leverages both on-premises resources and the public cloud without the need for complex workarounds or other products and vendors. Easily move workloads between your datacenter, service providers, and Azureā€”and build hybrid applications that leverage resources across all three. Unlike Amazon Web Service’s cloud-only approach, Azure gives you lots of options for an effective hybrid cloud strategy without forcing you to snap to a rigid all-or-nothing approach.

Better Together with IaaS and PaaS

With industry leading solutions, Microsoft offers the full range of cloud computing from Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) to fully managed platform-as-a-service (PaaS). Choose IaaS services and own the full stack and management duties or deploy higher level PaaS services and focus on your applications while Azure handles the rest. PaaS services can reduces costs, complexity, and management effort, while providing seamless scalability and high availability.
