Umbraco Cloud Infrastructure Overview

Umbraco Cloud is based on the state of the art Cloud technology from Microsoft Azure, ensuring redundancy of the underlying services and compliance with industry standards.

Umbraco as a Service architecture
Redundancy at the heart of everything
The infrastructure architecture of Umbraco Cloud is designed ground up with redundancy in mind. From Geo-redundant storage that ensures your data can be accessible even a complete data center crash, over Elastic SQL Azure Databases to a massive pool of Virtual Machines acting as workers for serving and scaling web requests, UaaS is built to be used and to last.
