Microsoft Azure Microsoft has been a major leader in the technology marketplace for many years and it continues to grow to be the leader in the future. Microsoft has a cloud computing software called Microsoft Azure. It began as a project named Red Dog in the mid-2000s, but in 2010 Microsoft officially released Windows Azure to the public. The program offers five important parts of cloud computing. They are Microsoft SQL Services for databases, Microsoft .NET Services for developers; Live Services for file sharing; Microsoft SharePoint Services, and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Services SaaS offerings. There was a lot of mixed feeling about the product after it was released due to the competition with Amazon Web Services (AWS). However, Microsoft did not let that get to them and they made the program better over time. They added support for programming languages, operating systems, frameworks, which includes Linux. In 2014, Microsoft saw that their program has grown so large that it could not work windows, so they renamed it Microsoft Azure (Harvey, 2017). Microsoft Azure has many products for customer or corporations. Some of the popular products are its App Service, Virtual Machines, SQL Database, Blob storage, Azure Container Service, and Functions (Azure pricing, 2017).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
