Azure is Microsoft's Cloud Services, which are similar to the Amazon Web Services product or AWS.

Everyone is rushing to post new data and applications in the Cloud because it is cool and allows corporations to cut costs by not hosting their own server infrastructure for both databases and web applications.

However, from a military science perspective, which is borne out by quite a bit of reporting in the mainstream press as well as security analysts, Cloud Services are simply big, juicy targets that have very large attack surfaces. And since, by the reporting of a recent survey, approximately 87% of all businesses surveyed really don't put much of an emphasis on security, Cloud Services are subsequently begging to be attacked; and they are being breached on a regular basis.

Cloud Services are an attempt to centralize corporate data centers on third-party infrastructure to make it look like companies are saving money. However, if such a service is breached, most of the companies on them can be easily fu... fuc... f***... f***ed...

Using Cloud Services is like bunching your Army together in one mass formation so the enemy can toss a few missiles at it and destroy most of your army in one attack.

And since most corporations are simply stupid bureaucracies with even dumber leadership, they all go like lemmings to the same place everyone else is going so as not to be last on line for the big surprise...
