Azure's integrated tools, unified services, and proven solutions help you build enterprise, mobile, web, and Internet of Things (IoT) apps faster, for virtually any platform or device. Any developer can be productive on Azure, not just those with DevOps skills or Windows expertise, because Azure supports the broadest selection of devices, operating systems, databases, languages, frameworks and tools.
Azure lets you easily build hybrid applications that leverage resources in your datacenter, at service providers, and within Azure itself —all without the need for complex workarounds and tradeoffs. You can also use a wider set of hybrid connections including virtual private networks (VPNs), content delivery networks (CDNs), caching, ExpressRoute connections to ensure performance and ease of use.
Azure gives you access to the same technologies that millions of businesses trust and use today, including Windows and Linux, virtual machines and containers, and Active Directory. It also ties into toolsets such as Visual Studio, XCode, Eclipse, GitHub, and Hadoop, and offers a vast array of third party tools, solutions, and partner-developed applications via the Azure Marketplace.
