This tag contains all of my blog posts that directly concern Microsoft Azure.
But what is Microsoft Azure? Microsoft themselves describe it like this:
Microsoft Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud services to help your organization meet your business challenges. It’s the freedom to build, manage, and deploy applications on a massive, global network using your favorite tools and frameworks. (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-ca/overview/what-is-azure)
Marketing talk aside, Azure offers developers a way to get going fast, and concentrate on the functionality and added value instead of worrying about the infrastructure. Well, worrying about most of it anyway.
For IT Pros, it offers a new can of worms, a huge set of tools to squash those worms, and opportunities to offer a lot of value to their organizations.
For business people, Azure offers big potential savings. And the blockchain. And machine learning. And IoT, of course. It’s the hybrid cloud solution for your modern, blockchain-backed, machine learning -powered workloads running on the intelligent edge.
Does that sound good to you? No? Well, scratch the last paragraph – it’s true, but not as bad as it sounds!
