Microsoft Azure is a constantly expanding suite of cloud services that help organizations meet business challenges. Within this platform we can create, manage and deploy applications on a large-scale global network through your favorite tools and architectures.
If you are a student, Azure has $ 100 to spend.
What is cloud computing?
Cloud computing consists of accessing computing services such as servers, storage, networks or software over the Internet (“the cloud”) from a provider such as Azure. For example, instead of storing personal documents and photos on your computer hard drive, most people now store them online: this is cloud computing.
Cloud computing platforms such as Azure tend to be less expensive and more secure, reliable and flexible than on-premises servers.
With the cloud, equipment downtime due to maintenance, theft or damage is virtually nonexistent. You can scale your computing and storage resources (scale up or down) almost instantly when your needs change in Azure. Typically, you only pay for the services you use, which provides a level of convenience and cost control that is almost impossible to achieve with on-site infrastructure.
