Microsoft Windows Azure

Microsoft Azure is the Cloud for Modern Business.

Cloud based applications and services break down the limitations imposed by entirely on-premise scenarios faced by most businesses. Microsoft Azure can extend your existing IT capabilities to provide globally accessible Private Networks or you can move your entire platform to the Cloud if you wish. There is no longer any need to invest in expensive server hardware as Windows Azure provides a managed and supported solution that can be created in minutes and scaled up or down on demand.
