Why Azure

Enterprises across the globe are realizing great success with business solutions powered by Cloud. They are redefining the way they do business with scalable and secure cloud-enabled enterprise applications. Globally, 90% of Fortune 500 companies are using Microsoft Azure to drive their business. Using deeply-integrated Azure cloud services, enterprises can rapidly build, deploy, and manage simple to complex applications with ease. Azure supports a wide range of programming languages, frameworks, operating systems, databases, and devices, allowing enterprises to leverage tools and technologies they trust.

Here are some of the major reasons to choose Azure for your enterprise:

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) capabilities:

Azure boasts an enticing combination of IaaS and PaaS services. IaaS enables enterprises to outsource their infrastructure on Azure and pay for what they use and PaaS lets them create their own web apps & solutions without having to buy and maintain the underlying groundwork. Top Azure Aarisha Consultants can work with enterprises to leverage Azure PaaS & IaaS to build enterprise apps on the Cloud for accelerated business growth.

Security Offerings:

Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) is an industry leading security process on which Azure has been designed. It comprises security at its core and private data & services stay safe and secure on Azure Cloud. Microsoft Azure offers the best compliance coverage of over 50 compliance offerings and is the most trusted cloud platform by U.S. government institutions. Azure is the first to embrace the new international standard for Cloud privacy, ISO 27018. Microsoft guarantees the best in terms of safety for all operations and data on the Azure Cloud.

Scalability and Ductility:

Applications run easily, unaffectedly and scale from 1 to 10 million users without any additional coding by using Azure. Azure Storage provides ductile, safe, secure and performance-efficient storage services in cloud. It becomes simpler to change settings and use more processors for the application to use.

Unmatched Hybrid Capabilities:

Azure has hybrid capabilities that make it unique. Azure facilitates easy mobility and a reliable consistent platform between on-premise and public Cloud. Azure provides a broader range of hybrid connections including virtual private networks (VPNs), caches, content delivery networks (CDNs), and ExpressRoute connections to improve usability and performance.

Integrated Environment with Other Microsoft Tools:

Organizations dependent on Microsoft tools like Office 365, Outlook and SharePoint invests in a cloud platform that impeccably integrates with Microsoft products. Use of Azure simplifies operations by using the same virtual on-premise machines like Windows and Linux.

Analytics and Intelligence capabilities:

Azure facilitates SQL and NoSQL data services and built-in support for digging deeper into data and uncovering key insights for improving business processes and decision making. Azure is the only cloud platform that offers Blockchain as a Service (BaaS), Machine Learning, Bots, and Cognitive APIs capabilities.

Choosing the right Cloud vendor is a very important decision for Enterprises. Numerous enterprises have witnessed accelerated business growth by choosing Azure as their cloud platform.

Familiar tools such as Visual Studio, ASP.NET, and programming languages like Visual Basic, C++, C#, etc., are used to develop cloud native applications.

Microsoft's pay-as-you-go model allows you to pay for what you use to build or expand resources using Azure services. This cuts down the IT administration costs to a minimum as infrastructure is taken care by Microsoft on Azure. It connects datacenters to the cloud effortlessly and supports 42 regions like no other cloud provider.


Amalgamated applications can be developed for on-premises applications such as cloud database with Azure. Azure aids Internet protocols and open standards such as XML, SOAP, REST and HTTP. A software development kit for Java, PHP, and Ruby is available for applications written in those languages and Azure tools for Eclipse.

Identity & Access Management (IAM):

Azure offers secure IAM capabilities with Azure Active Directory service to enable right users to access the right information. With Azure, Enterprises can adopt mature IAM capabilities to reduce identity management costs and become more agile, thus supporting innovative business initiatives.

Azure is 4-12% cheaper than AWS, and it also offers some features which makes it better than AWS. The following are some important aspects where Azure is rated better than AWS.

PaaS Capabilities:

Both Azure and AWS are similar in offering PaaS capabilities for virtual networking, storage, and machines. However, Azure gives stronger and faster PaaS capabilities which nowadays are more important part of Cloud infrastructure.

Integrated Environment:

Azure now brings to the array an integrated environment for testing, developing, and deploying Cloud apps. The client has the choice of frameworks, and open development languages promote the flexibility for Azure migration, whereas AWS is widely perceived as being complicated.

Security Offerings:

The new design of Azure is based on Security Development Lifecycle (SDL). The Microsoft SDL introduces security and privacy considerations throughout all phases of the development process, helping developers build highly secure software, address security compliance requirements, and reduce development costs. The guidance, best practices, tools, and processes in the Microsoft SDL are offered in Azure Cloud.

Developer Tools:

Azure and AWS have slightly different approach, when it comes to developer tools.AWS development tools are based on the processes and tools used by Amazon's own internal engineering teams. AWS suite of Developer Tools mainly focuses on supporting DevOps. Azure has an IoT Suite that provides solutions for scenarios like predictive maintenance and remote monitoring. It also offers core for push notifications, monitoring IoT deployments, streaming analytics, and machine learning capabilities that combine with its cloud-based IoT services.

The 'Enterprise Agreement' Advantage:

Organization using Microsoft software are entitled to receive discounts on the Microsoft software license towards Azure. Microsoft normally squeeze these agreements to lower the pricing of Azure. Choosing the right Cloud vendor is very essential and important decision for enterprises. Azure offers hybrid solution, PaaS, and many other beneficial features, which are very important for any Cloud strategy today. Numerous enterprises have observed steady business growth by moving to Azure.
