Welcome to my blog post about Microsoft Azure and Open Source. Let’s first start with what is Microsoft Azure ,Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a service (SaaS) services and MEAN Stack.
Microsoft Azure was been created by Microsoft and it’s a Cloud computing platform for building, deploying and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft managed data centers.
Microsoft Azure supports many different programming Languages, tools and frameworks of both Microsoft and 3rd party software.

Microsoft Azure provides Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a service (SaaS) services.
IaaS,Paas and SaaS
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is an instant computing infrastructure, provisioned and managed over the Internet. Quickly scale up and down with demand, and pay only for what you use.

Platform as a service (PaaS)
Platform as a service (PaaS) is a complete development and deployment environment in the cloud, with resources that enable you to deliver everything from simple cloud-based apps to sophisticated, cloud-enabled enterprise applications. You purchase the resources you need from a cloud service provider on a pay-as-you-go basis and access them over a secure Internet connection.

Software as a service (SaaS)
Software as a service (SaaS) allows users to connect to and use cloud-based apps over the Internet. Common examples are email, calendaring and office tools (such as Microsoft Office 365).

Microsoft Azure and Mongo, Express, Angular, and Node(MEAN).
Microsoft Azure not only supports .Net application to be deployed in Cloud. Microsoft Azure also supports deploying technologies like PHP, Node.js, Java, Python as we can see from our first image.
Microsoft Azure also support building and deploying Mongo, Express, Angular, and Node(MEAN) Stack applications
