Microsoft Azure is one of the easiest clouds to get up and running. Once in place, it’s also among the easiest to manage.
Windows compatibility. Linux and container compatibility (yes, you read that right). Good front-end management interface.
Average performance. High cost.
Those who have built their businesses around Windows will want to use Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution Microsoft Azure. Those who rely on Linux should still take a close look at Microsoft Azure as Microsoft does a decent job there as well.
Healthcare collaboration tools were the most popular cloud category, according to Skyhigh’s findings. The average healthcare organization uses 188 collaboration services, such as Microsoft Office 365, Gmail, and Evernote. The next most commonly used cloud category with an average of 52 services per organization was development, including SourceForge and GitHub. Content sharing services and social media services were the next most commonly used categories, with an average of 37 and 33 services per organization, respectively.
Amazon is clearing the leader according to a new report. Amazon Web Services dominates the cloud with 28% of the overall market, with Microsoft Azure making gains but still commanding just 10% of the market.

Docker is barely a year old and every major cloud vendor (Microsoft, Amazon, Google, etc) is embracing. Google is the latest to get on board.
You can think of Docker as a shipping container for things on the internet–a tool that lets online software makers neatly package their creations so they can rapidly move them from machine to machine to machine.
The Future of Cloud is Hybrid by MIKE SCHUTZ, General Manager, Cloud Platform Marketing is Hybrid. Given Microsoft’s advantage over Amazon AWS and Google Cloud, this is not a surprising statement.
However, In my opinion, the future of cloud is clearly not Hybrid and not IaaS. The future of Cloud is SaaS and PaaS. However, it’s going take another 5 years before Corporate America comes to this realization.
