Microsoft Azure

It is a cloud computing service created by Microsoft for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed data centers. It provides software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service and infrastructure as a service and supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems.

Computer

Virtual machines, infrastructure as a service (IaaS) allowing users to launch general-purpose Microsoft Windows and Linux virtual machines, as well as preconfigured machine images for popular software packages. App services, platform as a service (PaaS) environment letting developers easily publish and manage Web sites.

Mobile services

Mobile Engagement collects real-time analytics that highlight users’ behavior. It also provides push notifications to mobile devices. HockeyApp can be used to develop, distribute, and beta-test mobile apps.

Storage services

Storage Services provides REST and SDK APIs for storing and accessing data on the cloud. Table Service lets programs store structured text in partitioned collections of entities that are accessed by partition key and primary key. It's a NoSQL non-relational database.

Data management

Azure Search provides text search and a subset of OData's structured filters using REST or SDK APIs. DocumentDB is a NoSQL database service that implements a subset of the SQL SELECT statement on JSON documents. Redis Cache is a managed implementation of Redis.

Messaging

The Microsoft Azure Service Bus allows applications running on Azure premises or off premises devices to communicate with Azure. This helps to build scalable and reliable applications in a service-oriented architecture (SOA). The Azure service bus supports four different types of communication mechanisms like Event Hubs, Queues, Topics, Relays.

Media services
