Microsoft Azure Explained
Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing service that works similarly to Amazon and the Google. This is an actual cloud computing service for companies, organisations and others who need more than just a place to store their data. Microsoft Azure means no more web hosting add-ons which can become expensive, especially for and SME or startup.
Instead of hosting your own infrastructure, meaning having your own web or email server on your own hardware and needing an admin to run it all, for a fee, of course, cloud computing enables today’s businesses to pay for a part of the pie, rather than the whole thing. You can host web servers, email servers, databases, file storage servers, virtual machines, user directories and more without paying more or purchasing more hardware when you need more storage space.
You can even add more users without having to add more systems as cloud computing with Microsoft Azure will recognise all of them and add them to your cloud. This enables users to access data any time, from anywhere in the world giving you unlimited virtual offices.
