Microsoft Azure training - why is it worth knowing one of the fastest growing cloud platforms?

The cloud is a place where more and more businesses are moving, and among the solutions offering virtualization, the cloud platform from Microsoft is gaining particular popularity. In the context of these changes, more and more companies are looking for specialists who can make the most of MS Azure. The fastest way to discover the cloud are professional courses. Regardless of whether you are just starting your adventure with the platform and want to learn the basics of project management, or whether you already have programming experience and are planning to develop your competences, you will find something for yourself in Comarch's training offer.

What is Microsoft Azure and what services does it offer?

In recent times, the only option for many companies was to build an internal, physical IT infrastructure in the form of servers. However, this is a very costly solution that requires human and financial resources. Meanwhile, the use of the cloud allows you to eliminate the problems with purchasing and maintaining your own data centers, and at the same time optimize costs and use, adapting them to changing business needs.

MS Azure is a cloud that enables everything mentioned in the above paragraph - creating servers and data warehouses, installing applications or creating computing services within one complete platform. Azure offers over 200 products and services for storing and processing data needed to run a business in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI and ML), computing, containers, hybrid and multi-cloud solutions, as well as the Internet of Things (IoT).

MS Azure – facts and figures

  • The platform was founded in 2010, so it is over 10 years old.

  • Over 90% of Fortune 500 companies already use MS Azure.
  • The cloud offers support for various programming languages.
  • Scalability - most services can be scalable, both upwards (i.e., e.g. increasing memory and processor power) and across (more installations
  • Microsoft has 200 Data Centers scattered all over the world.

Using MS Azure in practice

What are the practical applications of Microsoft Azure cloud platform? What can you use it for in your work? Azure enables you, for example, to create in a very flexible way server environments optimized for the needs of a specific business, which will be based on several different platforms. Microsoft’s cloud also allows you to write, test and host applications.

The key functionalities include the processing and analysis of collected data using AI and self-learning algorithms. In other words, using the MS Azure platform, you can implement some of the most needed and well-paid projects on the market at present. So, it's time to take a look at how you have a chance to develop your skills of working with the platform.
