Microsoft Azure Essentials: Fundamentals of Azure, Second Edition
This book covers the fundamentals of Azure you need to start developing solutions right away. It concentrates on the features of the Azure platform that you are most likely to need to know rather than on every feature and service available on the platform.
Microsoft Azure is our cloud computing platform, providing a wide variety of services so you don't need to purchase and provision your own hardware. Azure enables rapid development of solutions by providing resources not feasibly available in an on-premises environment. Azure's compute, storage, network, and application services let you focus on your development work without worrying about hardware configurations.
