When I researched infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solutions in order to find the one that would best meet my needs, one solution stood out. Windows Azure proved to be the best option for me and it is the solution that I would recommend.
One of the features that really drew me to the Windows Azure cloud platform was its versatility. It is made up of more than 200 products and services that cover a variety of solution categories. These categories include:
1) Application development. Windows Azure gives me the ability to create applications should that particular function be necessary. My organization doesn't need to specially train employees in coding, as Windows Azure enables our developers to produce low-code applications. In addition to making it easy for the average employee to be a productive member of our application development team, we can also leverage serverless development solutions. These enable our team members to quickly turn out powerful applications. Instead of focusing on maintaining application development architecture, they are able to focus on the actual application creation process.
2) AI. When we use Windows Azure, we are able to leverage AI to assist us with a wide array of tasks. We are able to automate basic tasks and solve basic issues through the use of AI. Additionally, we use AI to secure us against hackers and malware.
3) Data and analytics. Windows Azure supplies us with business intelligence capabilities that let us analyze our data and gain deep insights from it.

Please let me know which virtualization software (Oracle VM, Azure VM, Microsoft Hyper-V, Google Compute Engine, VMware, ...) would you recommend for my organization?
Please let me know why would you choose the suggested solution.
I am not sure what workloads you're planning to run on the virtualized platform - databases, SAP, Hadoop, etc. But VMware vSphere is a great virtual platform to run (mixed of different types of workloads).
It is simple to deploy and maintain.
Do you still have 3 tiers of traditional infrastructure? Network Storage and Compute? Do you plan to implement HCI (Hyper-Converged Infrastructure)?

If you are looking for on-premise VMware would suffice most of your requirements.
However, if you are allowed for Cloud I would recommend to select Microsoft Azure.
I have recently locked the on-premise Data Center to Azure for one of the Healthcare providers in Dubai.

The three main types of cloud computing are SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS.
Software as a Service, or cloud application services, uses the internet to deliver software applications to its users via a third-party vendor. Most SaaS applications run directly through your browser, which means you don’t need to download or install anything. You can purchase a basic, easy to set up solution right out of the b...
