What is Azure?

Microsoft Azure is a growing collection of integrated cloud services that developers and IT professionals use to build, deploy, and manage applications through our global network of datacenters. With Azure, you get the freedom to build and deploy wherever you want, using the tools, applications, and frameworks of your choice.

Freedom to build and deploy anywhere

Choose how you deploy Azure—connecting cloud and on-premises with hybrid cloud capabilities and using open source technologies—for maximum portability and value from your existing investments.

 

Build your apps, your way

Use the tools and open source technologies you already know and trust, because Azure supports a broad selection of operating systems, programming languages, frameworks, databases, and devices.

 

Extend on-premises data and apps

Take the investment you’ve made in open source technology, data, or apps, and extend it to the cloud. Seamless hybrid cloud capabilities in Azure span infrastructure, data, user identity, apps, and management.

 

Deploy the cloud on-premises

Bring Azure capabilities to your datacenter with Azure Stack. Leverage the Azure portal, PowerShell, and DevOps tools experience and app model across the cloud and on-premises.
