Welcome to the Azure overview!

Ever wondered which services the Microsoft Azure Cloud platform offers? Which ones are in preview? Me too.
The world of Azure is large and changes fast. By my count there are currently 71 main services.
That's why I've created this site, Azure Overview, as a reference, to help people working with Azure to find out what's there and what the status of it is.

How does it work? Simply click on a service and more info appears. Click again to make it go away. Or search for a service or feature:
