Windows Azure

Windows Azure is a Microsoft Cloud Computing Platform offering to help its customers realize the benefits of cloud computing. Azure provides a range of functionality to build applications that span the consumer Web to enterprise scenarios. With Azure, applications can be developed and hosted either at the client site or in the cloud.

Windows Azure supports multiple languages and integrates with your current environment. Developers can use their existing Microsoft Visual Studio expertise to build applications, and Windows Azure supports popular standards and languages including SOAP, REST, XML, Java, PHP, and Ruby.

It allows developers to create and run applications, manage environments, and store data on servers owned and operated by Microsoft. Windows Azure provides the on-demand computing and storage necessary to manage, host, and scale web applications.
