The Benefits of Cloud Storage
Data is everywhere today. Data is even more valuable than oil. Think about the phone you have in your hand right now. There are hundreds of applications running on your phone with built-in backup settings to preserve, learn, and monitor your data. You don't even have to think about your personalized data being available to you on every other device you use after you sync everything. You might have even come to expect your data to regularly be available to you no matter where you are or what data format it is in. Many people utilize (and hoard) their stored data for sharing and work purposes every day. However, keeping data persistent, accessible, and most importantly secure, is not a trivial task.
5 Microsoft Azure Services You Probably Didn't Know About

Just like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform, it allows companies, organizations, and even individuals to take advantage of cloud computing. Companies traditionally host or lease their own infrastructure on their own web server with their own hardware. Additionally, the hardware is often leased along with support and management through a third-party dealer. Upgrades in hosting power always mean added expenses and/or additional hardware, requiring more dedicated space and equipment.
