What you'll Learn
Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure for building, deploying and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. It provides both PaaS and IaaS services and supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems. Its main services are: App Service and high density hosting of web sites; Virtual Machines and Virtual Networks, the principal Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering for the public cloud; Cloud services, a PaaS solution for hosted applications.
