If you aren’t familiar with Microsoft Azure, imagine it as one gigantic computer, spanning the whole globe. You can purchase a bit of that computer’s power, and run software on it just like you would on your office server. You can connect it to your on-premises servers, and connect to it from anywhere in the world.
Here is a typical use case for Microsoft Azure:
You have a server in your office that acts as a Domain Controller. This is the most crucial piece of a Windows network, and you want to create a replica to back it up in case it fails.
Using Microsoft Azure, you can create a virtual replica of your Domain Controller in the cloud. Once configured, it backs up any changes to your office server every hour, meaning even if your building was destroyed, your company IT structure would be not only safe, but instantly accessible in the cloud.
A secondary benefit is that remote sites like branch offices could connect to the Azure Domain Controller to use its services, just like your users do in the office, getting the same files, security permissions and so on.
Microsoft Azure is a broad platform, on which a vast number of solutions can be developed, from simple web hosting to complex networks.
