The integrated tools and services make it easier for users and developers to build and manage web, mobile, enterprise and IOT (Internet of Things) applications. Azure is compatible with various programming languages, operating systems, frameworks, tools, databases and devices.

Microsoft’s long dominance as a leading technology provider allows the company to build the best products for its users – including Microsoft Azure. Here are 5 reasons why your business should consider using Microsoft Azure:

Security

Azure has a disaster management system that protects against data loss.

Pay-as-you-go services or contract pricing

Azure is ideal for businesses who want to try Cloud services without a contract. Microsoft offers pay-as-you-go services for Cloud hosting, or reduced monthly pricing with a contract.

Robust Analytic Services

Azure offers one of the smartest analytics services: machine-learning Cortana Analytics and Stream Analytics. These are responsible in making smart decisions, customer service improvements and unearthing business possibilities.

24/7 Tech Support

Microsoft offers round-the-clock service and 24/7 tech support for Azure, as well as cross-platform support.

Global Server Presence

Microsoft has announced 38 Azure regions. This global footprint gives your business many options to ensure optimal customer performance.
