Azure is the cloud that helps protect your work. Forever.

What even is AWS? 

AWS (aka) Amazon Web Services, is a secure cloud services platform, offering compute power, database storage, content delivery and other functionality to help businesses scale and grow. Now, we know what you're thinking... "I trust Amazon for everything, why would I go with Azure?" 

Our Reasoning 

When you compare AWS versus Azure, you’ll find that Azure has more comprehensive compliance coverage with more than 70 compliance offerings, and was the first major cloud provider to contractually commit to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). To protect your organization, Azure embeds security, privacy, and compliance into its development methodology, and has been recognized as the most trusted cloud for U.S. government institutions, earning a FedRAMP High authorization that covers 18 Azure services. In addition, Azure IP Advantage provides best-in-industry intellectual property protection, so you can focus on innovation, instead of worrying about baseless lawsuits.

Build faster with the leading cloud platform

Rely on the only cloud provider recognized in the industry as having leading solutions in infrastructure as a service (IaaS), software as a service (SaaS), and platform as a service (PaaS)—in fact, according to this Forrester Total Economic Impact study, you’ll be more productive and increase your ROI with Azure PaaS services. Turn your ideas into solutions faster with more than 100 services, end-to-end management experiences, and app delivery with agile development practices.

Take your Azure investments further with the Microsoft Cloud

Get even more value out of your investment in Azure by using one of our industry-leading SaaS services, including Office 365, Dynamics 365, and Enterprise Mobility + Security. Azure shares many foundational capabilities with these services, such as identity management through Azure Active Directory and mobile device management through Intune.
