Microsoft Azure is a public cloud platform for building, deploying, and managing services and applications. Introduced to the world in October 2008 as Windows Azure and then having been rebranded in 2014 as Microsoft Azure; the public cloud computing platform has come a long way and competes with other public cloud platforms such as AWS and Google cloud platform.

Microsoft Azure is generally viewed as both, a Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering, because Azure holds the potential to add cloud capabilities to your existing network through its platform as a service (PaaS) model, or delegate Microsoft with all of your computing and network needs with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model. A range of cloud services is offered by Azure, counting in services such as compute, analytics, storage, and networking. Using the plethora of services provided by Azure, users may choose to either develop and scale new applications or run existing applications in the public cloud.

Microsoft maintains a directory of constantly growing Azure services. All the requisites to build a virtual network and deliver applications and services to a worldwide audience are available. Data backup and disaster recovery are few of the many reasons why Azure is chosen from the highly competitive market by many companies. Moreover, a number of organizations replace their own data center with Azure. Instead of making an investment in local servers and storage, several organizations opt to run the majority or, all their business applications in Azure.

The combination of Microsoft's vast infrastructure with data centers placed all around the world and the unhindered application and services development has made Microsoft Azure solutions, the preferred platform for more than two-thirds of the world's fortune 500 companies. In any case, the unending scalability of Azure partnered along with its flexibility and cost, can make it similarly as appropriate for a small-scale personal commerce too.
