Learn about data processing with Azure Cloud

What is Azure Cloud, how does it work, and why is cloud technology important? 

How to get started with Cloud Technology by using Azure Cloud

Together with DTU Science Park and EPICO-IT, Azure Cloud expert at Microsoft, Jan Cordtz, will zoom in on what Azure Cloud is, what you can use it for, and why it is important for an organization. Regardless of which industry or company you operate in, we are sure that learning more about Azure Cloud is worth your time.

What is cloud and cloud computing? 

Think of it as a large data center available to many users over the internet. You have probably already used cloud computing without really knowing it. Many of the things we use every day can only be done using a cloud-based approach. When we use emails through browsers, make backups, use social media and even online shopping; they are all based on a cloud solution.

The cloud can therefore help you handle large amounts of data, but also be helpful with infrastructure, productivity, data analysis and much more. Thus, the cloud is a central solution for several elements that can be handled in the ‘cloud’.

Using a cloud solution, you can store applications and data in the cloud instead of having to store it on your computer or mobile. In that way, you can handle far greater amounts of data and gather all the data, apps, and devices from different locations and access them all through an internet connection.

What exactly is Azure Cloud?

In short, it’s a platform from Microsoft with an ever-expanding set of services that can help you build solutions to meet your business goals.

So, instead of physically buying a large computer/computing solution to run your business, software or reach your goals, you can keep all that safe in the cloud and expand however you see fit.
