Benefit from an open and flexible platform
Integrate your existing IT environment
Your assets can stay right where you need them due to easy integration with your existing IT environment through the largest network of secure private connections, hybrid database and storage solutions, and data residency and encryption features. With Azure Stack, it is also possible to bring the Azure model of application development and deployment to your datacentre.
Scale as you need, pay as you go
Azure’s pay-as-you-go services can quickly scale up or down to match demand, so you only pay for what you use. Per-minute billing and a commitment to match competitor prices for popular infrastructure services like compute, storage and bandwidth mean you are always getting the best value.
Trust your data is secure
Azure comes with an industry-leading commitment to the protection and privacy of your data. Microsoft technology is leading the way in upholding rigid security guidelines and was the first major cloud provider to adopt the new international cloud privacy standard, ISO 27018.
Run your apps anywhere
Azure runs on a global network of Microsoft-managed datacentres across 38 regions. Running applications locally ensures data residency and great performance. Microsoft is also the first global cloud provider to offer a complete cloud from data centres in the UK.

Predictive analytics services, including Machine Learning, Cortana Analytics and Stream Analytics, redefine business intelligence. Make more informed decisions, improve customer service and uncover new business possibilities from your structured, unstructured and streaming Internet of Things data.
