Microsoft Azure (formerly Windows Azure before March, 25th 2014) is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure, created byMicrosoft, for building, deploying and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. It provides both PaaS and IaaS services and supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems. Azure was released on February 1, 2010.
Today, I have seen a request from one of the MVPs in our groups for Microsoft Azure stencils from Microsoft.
I am putting all that Information together what fellow MVPs had contributed for the reference.
