Microsoft Azure, the cloud computing solution from the Redmond, Washington company turns 8 years old today and is in the middle of a significant growth spurt. The solution was officially launched in 2010 and is a combination of Windows and Linux computing power with client-based SDKs that can be used to access the solution.
Although it started with humble beginnings, Azure has been growing rapidly. It is now just shy of being a $29 Billion part of Microsoft’s overall revenue. While Azure doesn’t get as much limelight as Google Cloud Platform or even Amazon’s AWS, it is a powerful and robust cloud solution for enterprises.
