What is Microsoft Azure?
Azure is Microsoft's cloud computing platform, a growing collection of integrated services—analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage, and web—for moving faster, achieving more, and saving money.
Microsoft Azure allows you to quickly deploy infrastructures and services to meet all of your business needs. You can run Windows and Linux based applications in 19 Azure datacenter regions, delivered with enterprise grade SLAs.

Why Microsoft Azure?
Microsoft understands that for you—our enterprise customer—to realize the benefits of the cloud, you must be willing to entrust your cloud provider with one of your most valuable assets—your data. If you invest in a cloud service, you must be able to trust that your customer data is safe, that the privacy of your data is protected, and that you retain ownership of and control over your data—that it will only be used in a way that is consistent with your expectations.
Microsoft strives to earn your trust in Microsoft Azure. Microsoft's long experience running online services has involved extensive investment in foundational technology that builds security and privacy into the development process. Over time, we've developed industry-leading security measures and privacy policies, and participated in international compliance programs with independent verification of how we measure up.
- COMPLY: Microsoft adheres to international privacy and compliance standards. You can feel confident Azure services meet the strictest data protection requirements.
- CONTROL: You control your data, including where it is stored and who has access. Microsoft will not mine your data, and if you decide to leave, your data goes with you.
- PROTECT: Microsoft cloud datacenters are protected both physically and virtually to give you peace of mind, with data encrypted both in trasit and at rest.
