It's a reliable infrastructure that spans more than 100 highly secure facilities worldwide, linked by one of the largest networks on earth.
But what does that mean in practice? Effectively, Azure is a network of thousands of computers, across the world, which you can use when, where, and how you need to - using the power of cloud computing. You don't have to maintain or manage the infrastructure, and you can dip in and out as and when it suits you.
Azure is more than just a network or a cloud provider, though. It's a way to make your business more efficient, more cost-effective, and more powerful - now and in the future.
Azure gives you simple ways to secure and manage your cloud by:
Eliminate the expense of setting up and maintaining on-site data centres. Access and scale the resources you need, when you need them.
Cloud providers invest a lot more into security than any individual company could hope to - keeping your data safe against modern threats.
No matter where you are, cloud is there. With data centres all over the world, your business can scale to meet your customer's demands quicker than ever.
Access leading artificial intelligence (AI) services to run your AI workloads at scale. Use pre-built APIs, or build you own AI solutions.
Use any open-source OS, languages, and tools on Azure. It's also the only cloud around with integrated support for Red Hat.
Use your existing tools and knowledge, and keep a consistent experience across on-site and cloud technologies, by integrating everything with Active Directory.
SpiderGroup helped us create a Remote Desktop farm in Azure at short notice. They ensured a smooth transition of all our data and applications and continue to support our Azure platform.
While we have been using Azure for some time, it wasn’t until SpiderGroup opened the door and led us deeper into depths of Azure that we really saw the benefits. SpiderGroup’s guided knowledge and support empowered us to deliver our own cloud Disaster Recovery platform.
It's impossible to share just how powerful Microsoft Azure is in just one page, so this is just a taste of what's available.
