About this Solution:
Your app. Your framework. Your platform. All welcome.
Microsoft Azure is a growing collection of integrated cloud services—analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage, and web—for moving faster, achieving more, and saving money.
●Get more done
Any developer or IT professional can be productive with Azure. The integrated tools, pre-built templates, and managed services make it easier to build and manage enterprise, mobile, web, and Internet of Things (IoT) apps faster, using skills you already have and technologies you already know.
●Use an open and flexible cloud service platform
●Extend your existing IT
Some cloud providers make you choose between your datacenter and the cloud. Not Azure, which easily integrates with your existing IT environment through the largest network of secure private connections, hybrid database and storage solutions, and data residency and encryption features — so your assets stay right where you need them. And with Azure Stack, you can bring the Azure model of application development and deployment to your datacenter. Azure hybrid cloud solutions give you the best of both worlds: more IT options, less complexity and cost. It’s why it’s one of the best cloud computing services available.
●Scale as you need, pay as you go
Azure’s pay-as-you-go services can quickly scale up or down to match demand, so you only pay for what you use. Per-minute billing and a commitment to match competitor prices for popular infrastructure services like compute, storage and bandwidth mean you’re always getting unbeatable price for performance.
●Protect your data
We know some organizations are still wary of the cloud. That’s why Microsoft has made an industry-leading commitment to the protection and privacy of your data. We were the first cloud provider recognized by the European Union’s data protection authorities for our commitment to rigorous EU privacy laws. Microsoft was also the first major cloud provider to adopt the new international cloud privacy standard, ISO 27018. We also launched Azure Government, a stand-alone version of Azure designed to meet the rigorous compliance requirements of U.S. public agencies.
●Run your apps anywhere
As the best cloud service from Microsoft, Azure runs on a worldwide network of Microsoft-managed datacenters across 30 regions—more countries and regions than Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud combined. This fast-growing global footprint gives you lots of options for running applications and ensuring great customer performance. Azure is also the first multinational cloud provider in mainland China.
●Make smarter decisions
Azure’s predictive analytics services, including Machine Learning, Cortana Analytics and Stream Analytics, are redefining business intelligence. Make smarter decisions, improve customer service and uncover new business possibilities from your structured, unstructured and streaming Internet of Things data.

4 STEPS TO START YOUR IoT SOLUTION
THE METRICS OF AZURE IoT SERVICES
POPULAR AZURE IoT SOLUTIONS
How do you know if your oil pipes located in remote Alaska need repairs? Now, assets located anywhere can be monitored from afar. Remote monitoring solutions collect live data from assets, and use that data to trigger automatic alerts and operational actions based on current conditions, such as remote diagnostics and maintenance requests. Go from a manual, costly procedure to one that is dynamic and automated using IoT data.
Predict equipment failures before they happen, and systematically prevent them—even for millions of machines spread across the globe. Predictive maintenance solutions take advantage of streaming data from sensors and devices to recognize warning signs, predict when equipment needs maintenance, and preemptively service that equipment before costly repairs are needed.
