  • Virtualized Computation provides massive application scalability. Customers can build a combination of web and worker roles, and those roles can be automatically replicated as needed to scale the applications and computational processing power.•Storage Services allow customers to scale to store any amount of data – in any format – for any length of time, only paying for what they use or store.•Services Management takes place in the Fabric Controller, the core of Windows Azure Services Management. The Fabric Controller is where load balancing and application scaling take place. Additionally, the virtualized computational capabilities are performed here.•Security and Control with storage encryption and access authentication as well as over-the-wire encryption secures your data and application. Industry certification is a core part of the Windows Azure roadmap, seeking certifications on compliance with SOX, SAS70, and others. State-of-the-art data centers located around the would – or on your site – host your applications and data securely anywhere you desire, accessible from everywhere you allow.
