Supporting the broadest selection of operating systems, programming languages, frameworks, tools, databases and devices, the Azure cloud service supports the same technologies millions of developers and IT professionals already rely on and trust around the globe.
Through the largest network of secure private connections, hybrid databases, storage solutions with data residency and encryption features that allow your assets to stay right where you need them, Azure allows you to easily integrate with your existing IT environment.
Enhance and extend your existing IT Infrastructure
With more IT options, less complexity and cost, Azure is one of the best cloud computing services available today. With Azure Stack you can bring the Azure model of application development and deployment straight to your datacentre whilst Azure hybrid cloud solutions give you the best of both worlds.
