Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. The three services in the cloud stack i.e. SaaS, IaaS and PaaS are interconnected and dependent on each other to deliver a cost effective solution to clients.
Azure, currently, is one among the major cloud platform that is consistently ranked as a leader for both infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS).
Most of the public cloud providers come up with their own services, Microsoft Azure stands unique for its support in all the 3 categories – SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS. In addition, Azure also provides Blob Storage, SQL Database, DocumentDB, etc. Azure also comes with its own Identity Provider – Azure Active Directory.
