If there’s one thing that Microsoft does well, it’s convincing other businesses to use Azure as their primary cloud computing solution. Statistics indicate that 95% of Fortune 500 companies currently use Azure and, to its credit, the service is good at certain things. For example, Microsoft’s cloud network spans over 54 regions and 140 countries, more than any other provider.

While there aren’t many beginner-friendly tools to rely on, Azure is pretty much a one-stop-shop for cloud computing. Like AWS, the service is geared towards companies that have an IT department and a team of system administrators on call.

The good news is that even non-technical users can ultimately learn to navigate Azure’s services with the help of the Microsoft Learn platform.
