Azure can really benefit your business by providing access to resources in the cloud and reducing costs at the same time. Azure provides high availability, backup and SLAs for your cloud-based infrastructure.
Azure can be managed with a variety of different tools. For basic tasks, the Azure portal can be used. To automate the deployment of a big part of your infrastructure, scripting and command line tools are available as well. You can use both PowerShell and the Azure CLI to manage your entire environment.
Another method to deploy resources in Azure is by using a declarative approach. Here, you define the required components in a file, which is then deployed to the system. Azure Resource Manager will make sure that the correct resources are created on the platform.

Companies can decide to connect their on-prem network to Azure. A VPN Gateway can be deployed to connect to your on-prem network, using a site-to-site or point-to-site tunnel. If you need dedicated bandwidth, you can choose an ExpressRoute connection, giving your company a direct, private link to the Azure Datacenters.For larger deployments, you can work with Virtual Network Hubs, a resource that allows you to manage all connections to your Azure VNet from a single interface.
