Microsoft Azure is a collection of integrated cloud services that you can use to build, deploy, and manage applications through Microsoft’s worldwide network of datacenters. Azure provides you with the flexibility to build and deploy where you need to—using the tools, applications, and frameworks you want to use.
Anywhere, anytime deployment
You can choose how you want to deploy Azure, and you can connect cloud and on-premises with hybrid capabilities and using open source technology. This flexibility helps you get the greatest value possible from your existing investments.
Your apps, your way
No need to learn a new language or buy new tools. Azure supports a wide variety of operating systems, languages, frameworks, databases, and devices, so you can develop using the tools and technologies you are comfortable and familiar with.
On-premises data and apps, extended
With hybrid consistency offered by Azure—from development to management and security to identity management—you can extend your on-premises data and applications.
An on-premises option
Want to use your datacenter? Look to the Azure Stack. You can take advantage of the Azure portal, PowerShell, and DevOps tools experience and app model across the cloud and on-premises.
