At the Forefront of Building and Deploying Cloud-Based Applications
Azure is Microsoft's platform for building and deploying cloud-base
applications, and AAJ is at the forefront in utilizing this technology
in the marketplace. Microsoft Azure provides developers on-demand
compute and storage to create, host, and manage scalable and available
Web applications through Microsoft Data centers.
Microsoft Azure reduces the need for up-front technology purchases,
and enables developers to quickly and easily create applications running
in the cloud by using our vast experience with Microsoft-based
development environments and framework. In addition to managed code
languages supported by .NET, Azure will support more programming
languages and development environments in the near future. Azure
simplifies maintaining and operating applications. Infrastructure
management is automated with a platform that is designed for high
availability and dynamic scaling to match usage needs with the option of
a pay-as-you-go pricing model.
Azure provides an open, standards-based and interoperable environment
with support for multiple internet protocols including HTTP, REST,
SOAP, and XML.
