Windows Azure is a cloud computing platform offered by Microsoft. Unlike OneDrive, which is the public cloud computing platform, Windows Azure is designed for app developers. Windows Azure service is availed to the users via data centres managed by Microsoft. Of late, Microsoft has introduced a slew of features to its Windows Azure platform. Reports indicate that some of the features include autoscale improvement, notification hub and SQLServer AlwaysOn support.

Microsoft informed Azure users through its Windows Support number facility that its default search engine Bing employs Azure notification option for news updates and other services.
When SQL Server Always On support was rolled out to Azure earlier, the service was equipped with limited features like disaster recovery. Now, the latest update has contributed towards boosting the Azure features, especially the SQL Server support. After installing the latest update, Windows Azure users will be able to recover their data from database failover, configuration errors and replicas.
