Microsoft Azure’s Government Cloud has expanded its FedRAMP Provisional Authorization to Operate (P-ATO) with the addition of five new offerings:
- Azure Service Bus: Provides cloud-enabled communication with enterprise messaging and relayed communication to help connect applications, services, and devices. Service Bus connects applications running on Azure, on-premises systems, or both.
- Azure Notification Hubs: A massively scalable mobile push notification engine for quickly sending millions of notifications to iOS, Android, Windows, or Kindle devices, working with APNS (Apple Push Notification Services), GCM (Google Cloud Message), WNS (Windows Push Notification Services), MPNS (Microsoft Push Notification Service), and more.
- Azure Site Recovery: Orchestrates replication of on-premises physical servers and virtual machines to the Azure cloud or to a secondary datacenter allowing organizations to meet BCDR (Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery) objectives.
- Azure StorSimple: An integrated storage solution that manages storage tasks between on-premises devices and Microsoft Azure cloud storage.
- Azure Backup: A simple and cost-effective backup-as-a-service solution that extends tried-and-trusted tools on-premises with rich and powerful tools in the cloud.
This brings the total number of Azure Government offerings that meet the FedRAMP High baseline to 18.
