Windows Azure IaaS
The ability to create a virtual machine on demand, whether from a standard image or from the one supplied by the customer, is very useful. With an option to pay for the Azure VM on the hourly basis this ability becomes more cost efficient from business and technology perspective. Even more, your VM is connected to the same network over VPN channel and can be migrated from your datacentre to one of the Azure Datacenters around the globe or from the Azure Datacenter to your On-premise datacentre within minutes. This approach, commonly known as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), is what Windows Azure Virtual Machines provides.
