What is Microsoft Azure?
Microsoft Azure is a Cloud Computing service operated by Microsoft for application management via Microsoft-managed data-centers. It provides software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and supports many different programming languages, tools, and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems.
Created in 2010, Microsoft Azure uses large-scale virtualization at datacenters worldwide to offer more than 600 services including Mobile Services, Storage, Communication, etc.
