Microsoft adds five new offerings to the Azure Government Cloud

Microsoft has added five new offerings to the Azure Government Cloud platform, expanding its FedRAMP Provisional Authorization to Operate (P-ATO).

Joint Authorization Board approval has been granted to Azure Service Bus, Azure Notification Hubs, Azure Site Recovery, Azure StorSimple, and Azure Backup.

Azure Service Bus provides cloud-enabled communication through enterprise messaging and relayed communication. Service Bus connects applications, services, and devices. It also connects applications running on Azure, on-premises systems, or both.

The Azure Notification Hubs send millions of notifications to iOS, Android, Windows, or Kindle devices, while Azure Site Recovery creates a replication of on-premise physical servers and virtual machines to the Azure cloud or to a secondary data centre.

Azure StorSimple provides an efficient, cost-effective, and easily manageable storage area network solution that manages storage tasks between on-premise devices and Azure cloud storage, while Azure Backup is a backup-as-a-service solution that extends trusted tools on-premise with rich and powerful tools in the cloud.

The new additions bring the total number of Azure Government offerings that meet the FedRAMP High baseline to 18.
