Microsoft Azure platform
Microsoft Azure is a cloud platform that combines both IaaS computing infrastructure solutions (servers, data warehouses, networks, operating systems) and a set of tools and services that facilitate the development and deployment of cloud applications (PaaS).

more than 140 data centers
Microsoft Azure is a giant platform that is served by more than 160 data centers and is growing every year.

IaaS, PaaS, SaaS
The platform is a different type of cloud services: IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, which are more than 500 positions with the ability to implement any tasks and projects.
more than 500 services
Azure is used by different companies for completely different tasks. Some companies, implementing a strategy for the development of internal business processes, choose the location of their infrastructure according to the IaaS model. Other companies focus on building software, various applications and using Azure on the SaaS model.


Despite the huge number of data centers and services provided, the primary task of Microsoft is data security and uninterrupted operation of any infrastructure.
To ensure maximum security, all Microsoft Azure data centers are audited annually by the world's leading companies and meet the maximum set of international and industry-specific compliance standards, such as: general data protection regulations - GDPR, ISO 27001, SOC 2, SOC 1, HIPAA , FedRAMP. In addition, the Azure platform meets certain standards that are required in some countries. For example, MTCS - Singapore, UK - G-Cloud, Australia - IRAP.
Azure cloud security is based on the principle of replicating data from one data center to two others located in different regions of the world.

In addition, Microsoft is responsible for the continuity of services in accordance with the SLA (Service Level Agreement - Service Level Agreement). It ranges from 99.9% to 99.95% depending on the services.

Speaking of downtime, Azure services may be unavailable for a maximum of 4 hours per year. If downtime is fixed above the standard, Microsoft guarantees compensation for inconvenience.

The service level agreement exists both for all services and for each service separately. All information is publicly available.


Many companies use Azure primarily as a platform to create (or deploy) infrastructure. That is, they use the IaaS model - infrastructure as a service.

The Microsoft Azure platform has a huge number of virtual machines, types of storage and types of communication channels to provide high workloads, support critical applications, and most importantly - an easily and quickly scalable infrastructure.
The main distinguishing features of using Azure on the IaaS model are:
Speed of preparation and launch of infrastructure of any scale;

Large selection of ready-made images and operating systems of the latest versions;
Protection of applications and data by means of the built-in mechanisms and services;
Optimize infrastructure costs without loss of performance and provide maximum protection.
Using Microsoft Azure IaaS applications, each client receives a large number of related features and services to automate and optimize the infrastructure, such as:
  • Automatic stop and start of services - allows to optimize expenses as much as possible;

  • Automatic change of types of the used copies depending on the period of use of applications and loading on them;

  • Auto-scalable infrastructure for load optimization;
  • Automatic data replication, fast recovery and more.
In the construction of IT infrastructure, the trend is not just the use of cloud services on one platform, but the use of several types of clouds or the creation of Multi Cloud-model (multi-cloud).
Multi Cloud is an infrastructure created on the basis of using cloud services of several providers with the ability to use terrestrial infrastructure elements.
The multi-cloud can be implemented in several scenarios. Based on the needs, the specifics of the services used, the laws of the country and business needs, it is very important to choose your multi-cloud scenario.
