Microsoft Azure - Virtual Machines
With support for Linux, Windows Server, SQL Server, Oracle, IBM, and SAP, Azure Virtual Machines gives you the flexibility of virtualization for a wide range of computing solutions, including extending your datacenter. It’s the freedom of open-source software configured the way you need it. It’s as if it was another rack in your datacenter, giving you the power to deploy an application in seconds instead of weeks.
Get more choice
It’s all about choice for your virtual machines. Choose Linux or Windows. Choose to be on-premises, in the cloud, or both. Choose your own virtual machine image or download a certified pre-configured image in the Azure Marketplace. With Virtual Machines, you’re in control.
Scale to what you need
Combine the performance of a supercomputer with the scalability of the cloud. Scale from one to thousands of virtual machine instances. With the growing number of regional Azure datacenters, easily scale globally so you’re closer to your customers.
Pay only for what you use
Keep your budget in check with low-cost, per-minute billing. You only pay for the compute time you use.
Enhance security and compliance
Encrypt sensitive data, protect virtual machines from viruses and malware, secure network traffic, and meet regulatory and compliance requirements.
Explore the power of the hybrid cloud
Create virtual machines for on-premises servers, or scale up to the cloud to help balance resources and increase your application’s availability. Virtual Machines can integrate Azure cloud capacity into your datacenter for global load balancing when you need it, or access true, on-demand high-performance computing capabilities in the cloud.
Powerful enough for any business
Configure your virtual machine size and performance to handle the largest business needs. GS-series virtual machines deliver fast I/O performance with extremely low latencies by using the disk performance of Azure Premium Storage. Dv2-series virtual machines are perfect for applications that demand faster CPUs, better local disk performance, and higher memory.
