Microsoft Azure - Statistics & Facts

Launched in 2010, Azure is a private and public cloud computing platform created by Microsoft. Microsoft Azure solutions contain infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and software as a service (SaaS) offerings used for services including virtual computing, storage, networking, and analytics. As Azure’s steady growth rate over time demonstrates, there is great demand for these services in organizations worldwide.

Microsoft Azure products and solutions

As of 2021, the Azure cloud platform encompasses more than 200 cloud services and products. They are suitable for companies of all sizes with some tailored to specific industries, including healthcare, financial services, government, and retail. To meet the diverse needs of its global customer base, Microsoft continually evolves the Azure portfolio to support a growing number of operating systems and programming languages. Accordingly, the Azure platform is a popular choice for businesses to leverage technology to achieve their goals. Almost 70 percent of organizations worldwide use Microsoft Azure for their cloud services.

Some of Microsoft Azure’s key offerings include data management, media services, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), developer tools, and internet of things (IoT) applications. Further, Azure is advanced in terms of cloud security products and services, showcased by its many compliance certifications for global, regional, and industry-specific uses. Microsoft thereby seeks to help organizations overcome cloud security challenges, which remain an obstacle to successful cloud adoption.

Microsoft Azure is among the top global cloud providers

Microsoft Azure leads the global cloud market together with Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud. These three hyperscale cloud providers are the main players in the cloud infrastructure services market, with Microsoft taking approximately 20 percent market share. Notably, Microsoft entered the cloud business later than its main competitors but managed to catch up quickly.

This is owed to Microsoft’s legacy in enterprise IT. With Windows OS and its many productivity applications, the company already had a strong foothold in IT departments before the move to the cloud. Accordingly, one of Azure's strengths is in software as a service (SaaS), with a large variety of enterprise SaaS tools, most prominently Office 365. Furthermore, Microsoft has a strong presence in the hybrid cloud market, which makes the company a noteworthy partner for businesses with a large data center investment.
