A Good Fit for Education

Flexibility

Azure is a completely open cloud platform and completely compatible with Linux products, like CentOS, Oracle, Ubuntu, and more! Plus, Azure lets your researchers run opensource tools and kits too, like OpenJDK, Python,NodeJS and more. With Azure, you won’t be forced to choose between housing your data or operations internally or migrating to the cloud. You can take advantage of Azure’s hybrid capabilities to maximize your cloud computing investment where it makes sense for your institution.

Pricing

Azure helps educators reduce overhead costs associated with data storage, server maintenance, and networking—saving money on operations budgets that can be tight in the public sector. Azure’s pay-as-you-go pricing means you only pay for what you use: you can change your Azure solution in minutes to reflect seasonal usage instead of paying year round based on your peak demand.

Security

Azure’s compliance coverage is more comprehensive than any other cloud provider, meeting a range of international and industry-specific standards, like FERPA. Security and Privacy are built into the Microsoft Azure Platform through Azure Security Center, giving you complete visibility and control over security threats. Plus, Azure uses industry-standard protocols to encrypt data in transit and at rest.

Lab Services

Roll out and scale your lab from anywhere to hundreds of VMs with a single click. Manage your lab budget with usage control features. Invite users to access lab resources right away.

Data Storage

Azure is a technology platform that allows you to develop computing and data storage tasks in the cloud across a network of secure, Microsoft-managed datacenters.
