Choose your language, workload, operating system
With support for Linux, Windows Server, SQL Server, Oracle, IBM, and SAP, Azure Virtual Machines gives you the flexibility of virtualization for a wide range of computing solutions—development and testing, running applications, and extending your datacenter. It’s the freedom of open-source software configured the way you need it. It’s as if it was another rack in your datacenter, giving you the power to deploy an application in seconds instead of weeks.
Get more choice
It’s all about choice for your virtual machines. Choose Linux or Windows. Choose to be on-premises, in the cloud or both. With Virtual Machines, you’re in control.
Scale to what you need
Combine the performance of a world-class supercomputer with the scalability of the cloud. Scale from one to thousands of virtual machine instances. Plus, with the growing number of regional Azure data centres, scale globally easily so you’re closer to where your customers are.
Enhance security and compliance
We’ll help you to encrypt sensitive data, protect virtual machines from viruses and malware, secure network traffic and meet regulatory and compliance requirements.
