Microsoft Azure: Turning tiny insects into big data


Using the Microsoft Azure, epidemiologists can analyze over 100 million pieces of DNA in every sample they collect, identifying where diseases come from and how they spread. With the cloud, researchers can accomplish in hours what used to take months, and when you're dealing with diseases, every second counts. Microsoft Azure is the transformational force working behind the scenes to empower researchers to stop diseases before they spread.
