Yesterday Microsoft launched a new Android app for its cloud computing platform Azure.

Nadella also told developers that some 500 million devices now run on Microsoft's latest Windows 10 operating system, creating a huge audience for their software creations.

Microsoft's Build conference is where the company sets its vision for the near, and often far, future. The company also announced that it is now working on a UWP Azure app for Windows 10 devices and should be available sooner than later. Cosmos DB is a multi-model, globally distributed database service that leverages the Azure intelligent cloud, which according to Microsoft, makes it both more powerful and more flexible than other database services.

At the company's Build 2017 conference in Seattle, Nadella and crew unveiled new tools meant to democratize AI by powering smart machine smarts to be built into software from smartphone gaming to factory floors.

Cosmos DB could be a real diamond for Microsoft that helps it to finally overtake Big Red.

Taking a page from Facebook's lexicon, the term Microsoft Graph refers to all the data gathered not only from users interacting with Azure services but devices and any sensors attached to them.

Cosmos DB, which was borne out of DocumentDB and is generally available, will likely be a good fit for things that rely on graph data to determine how nodes and objects are interrelated, such as social networks, Ronthal said.

Indian equities trade on a flat note
The NSE Nifty too was quoting 24.90 points, or 0.26 per cent, higher at 9,338.95. Both stocks had traded in the green in the previous four sessions.

The company also announced two Azure database offerings, Azure Database for MySQL and Azure Database for PostgreSQL, which run as a service. For database starters, SQL (which stands for structured query language) is the standard way to interact with relational or other SQL databases.

The Redmond, Wash. -based company announced the service at its Build developer conference, saying it will help enable developers to move their computing needs to Windows and Linux devices - and utilize Microsoft's array of services, including Azure Machine Learning, Stream Analytics, and the Azure IoT Hub. It can be used for SQL Server, Oracle and MySQL databases and target SQL Database, Azure SQL Database Managed Instance or Microsoft SQL Server in an Azure VM.

However, these new database services have also put the software company in a more direct collision with another cloud heavyweight, the Redwood City-based database stalwart, Oracle Corporation. Not all of these were Oracle customers. These new database services have been created to help big companies and developers to take their third-party and SQL Server databases and move them to Microsoft Azure SQL Database service. "Our vigilance and expertise make it easier for businesses to migrate to Microsoft cloud solutions and use them to enhance their competitiveness easily".

Visual Studio 2017 for Mac has reached general availability, and there's now Threat Detection for Azure SQL databases. For a more detailed information about pricing and availability, check out the Azure official website.

The $14.8 billion from the commercial cloud businesses represents more than 15 percent of the $96.24 billion in overall revenue that Wall Street expects from Microsoft this year.

Nadella's opening keynote signaled an evolution to his signature message of "mobile-first, cloud-first", which is evolving into a message of "an intelligent cloud and an intelligent edge", thanks, in part, to the company's growing confidence in its developer tools and services.
