The cloud for intelligent solutions

Create the next generation of intelligent apps using powerful data and artificial intelligence services.

Develop breakthrough apps with built-in intelligence

Take advantage of a comprehensive set of services, infrastructure, and tools to build AI-powered experiences including bots that naturally interact with users and built-in advanced analytics tools, such as R, to make faster predictions.

Elastically scale storage and performance with Azure Cosmos DB, the first globally distributed database service that delivers horizontal scale-out with guaranteed single digit millisecond latency.

Rest assured with managed service capabilities such as built-in monitoring, threat detection, automatic patching, and backups.

Build and deploy custom AI models at scale

Work across teams to build, test and manage different versions of your models in production with Azure Machine Learning Studio, Workbench, Experimentation, and Model management. Build rich AI applications with a family of GPUs optimized for deep learning AI scenarios and run large-scale, massively parallel development with Azure Batch. Debug, test and deploy across platforms with Visual Studio Code.

Expand your possibilities with an open platform

Build apps for any scenario with familiar technologies of your choice and a comprehensive set of data engines such as PostgreSQL, MySQL, MongoDB and Hadoop.

Leverage advanced analytics and AI services and tools such as Spark, and Jupyter Notebooks.

Solution architectures

"Azure was the logical choice for us, given how it's already integrated with the Bot Framework, and we could also take advantage of services for free telemetry monitoring. Plus, with platform as a service, our infrastructure will automatically scale up and out, globally, to accommodate any increase in future volumes—and we don't have to over-provision."
