Microsoft celebrates strong Azure adoption at Build 2016

Microsoft’s Azure cloud services are growing at an increasing clip, and at the company’s Build conference today, it showed off some of its numbers from the past year.

At last year’s conference, Microsoft celebrated that it had 100k new Azure customer subscriptions per month, but it today revealed that the rate of growth has accelerated further, now topping 120k new customers per month.

It appears that Microsoft’s powerful Azure Internet of Things tool suite has been widely adopted, and not just for experimentation purposes. Every week, Azure’s IoT processes more than two trillion IoT messages, bearing witness to the platform being in wide use in commercial and scientific applications.
