Customers such as Allscripts, Chevron, J.B. Hunt, and thousands of others are migrating their important workloads to Azure where they find unmatched security. While understanding cloud security is initially a concern to many, after digging in, customers often tell us the security posture they can set up within Azure is easier to implement and far more comprehensive than what they can provide for in other environments.

When data scientists work on building a machine learning model, their experimentation often produces lots of metadata: metrics of models you tested, actual model files, as well as artifacts such as plots or log files. They often try different models and parameters, for example random forests of varying depth, linear models with different regularization rates, or deep learning models with different architectures trained using different learning rates.
