Microsoft Azure: Myths vs Facts

Microsoft Azure is an optimized cloud solution for organizational infrastructure where you can enjoy many services. It is evolving rapidly and services are being used by Fortune 500 companies now.

In spite of all these facts, recently, I've come across some misconceptions that people are having regarding Azure.

This article is intended to clear up all those myths.

Myth: Azure is only for Windows


Microsoft Azure is a platform independent cloud computing solution. It also supports open source technologies and can be accessed from any OS i.e. Linux, Windows or MAC.

Myth: Azure is too much expensive


NO, it is not expensive. As a matter of fact, it is 50% cheaper than other available cloud services. You pay exactly for what you use. In fact, there are some built-in resources which can help you in budget planning and cost cutting.

Myth: You can't trust Azure for rapidly growing businesses


This statement came from those people who were worried about scalability. Let me clear thisup here, Azure has localized regional data centers and scaling it up or down is just a matter of clicks. Much better than any other cloud service in the market.

Myth: Azure is offering nothing new


Another BIG misconception. Microsoft Azure is rapidly evolving and improving. They have rolled out 300+ updates in last one year.

Lastly, I'd just request everyone to not to believe the myths. Do your own research and educate yourself.
