Cloud computing Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services such as storage, databases, networking, software overthe Internet.Microsoft Azure is a cloud computingplatform of Microsoft. - Minimizes capital expenditures - Provides global scalability - Advantages of Microsoft’s worldwide network of secure datacenters - Greater reliability over On-premise infrastructure Cloud computing Advantages Microsoft Azure Development CompanyWhy Cloud Computing? Cloud computing helps to minimize your capital expenditure by not having to invest upfront in hardware and network infrastructure. Microsoft also provides an option where you pay only for what is consumed with respect to compute and storage. Global Scalability is another advantage of cloud computing. It offers the ability to dynamically scale in or scale out storage and compute power. With cloud computing, there is virtually no limit to the infrastructure resources that can be used. Why Microsoft Azure Development Services? Azure app development is cost-effective, secure and reliable. Azure allows us to leverage Microsoft’s worldwide network of datacenters. Azure handles the physical maintenance and security of the data centers as well as the software maintenance and upkeep of the computing resources. Users of Azure can simply start using the computing resources without concerning themselves with the upkeep and maintenance required. In today’s vulnerable IT environment, cybersecurity is vitally important to safeguard customer environments. Using Azure, customers can rest assured that a global leader in software security is securing their data centers. In terms of infrastructure management/updates, Azure offers far more reliable services than on-premise servers. One can effortlessly add more storage and compute resources dynamically in a matter of a few seconds whereas in case of on-premise servers it can take a few days or even weeks. Moreover, Azure provides solutions for High Availability and Disaster Recovery as well.
