  • Hybrid solutions
    • Azure provides hybrid capabilities as compared to other cloud services. It connects the datacenters to the cloud. Azure offers a platform that services easy transfer of applications between on the premises and on the public cloud.  Azure supports developing hybrid applications which can take the resources that are present in the datacenters, in Azure and at the service provider’s end. It also supports anextensive range of hybrid connections that includes Virtual Private Network, content delivery network, and caches.
  • Integrated Environment
  • Azure provides an integrated environment with one roof for developing, testing and deploying various applications in the cloud. The framework is chosen by the client and due to the usage of open development languages, it becomes flexible for Azure migration.

Conclusion

As Microsoft Azure is a group of different service components, it supports a broad range of operating system, data sharing, and scalability. Developers can make use of Azure platform for developing and building applications. Due to their various services of cloud, Azure can be used for developing various applications in the cloud.
