benefits and technologies
Benefits and Technologies
  • Real-time scalability – add/reduce computing power in minutes
  • Worry-free database – optimal performance with no DBA effort
  • Quicker time-to-market – add new geographies in minutes
  • Reduced costs – Up to 50% saving and no system admin

“We’re seeing significant reductions, in some cases half, in computing resource cost for comparable workflows by using Windows Azure. The resources appear and disappear as needed, which will save us money while removing practical constraints around capacity.”
