About Microsoft Azure SQL Database
Microsoft Azure is a public cloud computing service designed for building, testing, launching, and managing applications and services via Microsoft-managed data centers. Through its platform-as-a-service (PaaS), software-as-a-service (SaaS), and infrastructure-as-a-service (Iaas) offerings, Microsoft Azure integrates with a wide range of programming languages and tools. In addition to working with Microsoft's proprietary software and systems, Azure is compatible with third-party solutions, including Linux. As an extremely popular cloud services platform, many businesses and enterprises have used Microsoft Azure to migrate their computer systems to the cloud and eliminate the costs and staff requirements needed to maintain physical onsite servers.
