    Microsoft Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud services to help your organization meet your business challenges. It’s the freedom to build, manage, and deploy applications on a massive, global network using your favorite tools and frameworks.
    Azure services include-
    Azure Security-
    Security is integrated into every aspect of Azure. Protect your data, apps and infrastructure quickly with built-in security services in Azure that include unparalleled security intelligence to help identify rapidly evolving threats early — so you can respond quickly. Implement a layered in-depth strategy across identity, data, hosts and networks. Unify your security management and enable advanced threat protection in hybrid cloud environments.

    Azure Stack Services-
    Microsoft Azure Stack is changing the game in hybrid cloud platforms with a true hybrid cloud experience that increases efficiency, flexibility and productivity. For the first time, you can have a common, single vendor platform across cloud and on-premises data centers.

    Azure AI and Machine Learning-
    Today, your only limitation is the question you haven’t asked. Advanced analytics techniques using AI and machine learning make it possible for machines to think and learn. Microsoft Azure Machine Learning enables data scientists to prepare data, develop experiments and deploy models at cloud scale. You can then leverage Docker containers for experiments in managed environments and have the ability to use advanced hardware to accelerate execution. Azure Machine Learning includes three components (Workbench, Experimentation Service and Model Management Service), a learning library as well as Visual Studio Code Tools for AI.

    Azure SQL- Azure SQL Database is a relational cloud database that allows you to accelerate app development and use the familiar SQL database engine. Migrate your SQL server databases without changing your apps. Connect your data to the built-in artificial intelligence and advanced analytics capabilities to maximize performance, data protection and accelerated app development. This approach has the benefit of low maintenance and the same performance, scalability and reliability of Microsoft’s Azure cloud in IaaS and PaaS models.
