Microsoft Windows Azure
Mobile and website Applications are one of the fastest growing markets, in order to keep a flexible platform, Microsoft introduced its Cloud-based platform: Windows Azure. Azure is a application platform that allows you to develop faster, manage and host applications off site, in the cloud. Azure will take care of both your IaaS and PaaS requirements. This powerful combination lets you build, deploy and manage applications any way you like from any device, and provides a high level of productivity.
You may find some Cloud providers make you choose between your data center and the public Cloud. Not Azure. Its enterprise-proven hybrid Cloud solutions gives you the best of both worlds, expanding your IT options without added complexity. With Windows Azure, data storage, backup, and recovery become more efficient and economical. Making it easier to build applications that span both on-premises and the Cloud.
Not only will Windows Azure host your applications in the cloud but it will also be storing the data in Microsoft’s data Centers.
