The Height of Information.

Until now, individual researchers and small teams with limited resources have needed days—or weeks—to collect, store, and analyze these massive amounts of research.

  • Gather the data you need more quickly and in a more cost-efficient way.
  • Access and share your data in the cloud—anywhere at any time.

Join one of the free training courses offered around the world or click below to learn how our training tools can help advance your research through cloud computing.

Imagine thousands of machines analyzing and exchanging vast quantities of data, allowing you to work most efficiently.

  • With easy access to shared data collections, you don’t need to invest in large-scale compute and storage hardware.
  • Powerful, data-intensive processing helps you accelerate the rate of scientific insight.

Microsoft Azure for Research has already made a big impact on data-driven discovery. Learn how this program is changing the way researchers work.
