From Virtual Machines to VPN Gateways to Geo-Redundant Data Storage and Disaster Recovery, you can move your entire data center into Azure.

Azure’s pay-as-you-go services can quickly scale up or down to match demand, so you only pay for what you use. Per-minute billing for popular infrastructure services like compute, storage and bandwidth mean you’re always getting unbeatable price for performance. And Azure works seamlessly with other Microsoft software and services to help you keep your critical information safe.
