Microsoft Azure is an enterprise-grade cloud service platform: a complete set of secure application services for computing, storage, data, networking, and app development. CoTech can implement Azure on its own or leverage it for hybrid solutions that allow on-premises systems to integrate with cloud offerings, like Office 365.

CoTech’s Information Technology consulting services team will help you plan your cloud strategy.

How Does Azure Compare to Amazon, Google, and other Cloud Services?

Azure solutions offer both openness and flexibility to organizations that want to take advantage of cloud services. Compared with other similar cloud solutions such as AWS (Amazon Web Services) and Google Compute, Microsoft Azure offers transparent pricing and greater flexibility via simple integration with existing solutions like Active Directory, Office 365, Dynamics 365. Azure is recognized as a SaaS (software as a service), IaaS (infrastructure as a service), and PaaS (platform as a service) industry leader.
