The IT Landscape is changing rapidly with a move away from hosting on traditional servers with their high capital costs to one that uses on-demand services that scale automatically to handle load. IT Departments are being challenged to reduce the cost and footprint of infrastructure and maintenance spend with a focus on reducing CAPEX while also increasing agility.
Microsoft Azure Websites is a fully managed Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for hosting websites and web applications. You do not have to manage virtual machines, network load balancers, or deployment infrastructure yourself. All of these capabilities are provided by the Azure Websites service. Focus on your application code, and let Azure take care of the infrastructure to scale and securely run it for you.
