    Windows Azure is a Cloud Computing platform from Microsoft.

    It is not used for computation purpose.

    Cloud computing is a general term for anything that involves delivering hosted  services over the Internet. These services are broadly divided into three  categories: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service  (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). The name  cloud computing was inspired by the cloud symbol that's often used to represent  the Internet in flow charts and diagrams.

    If you want to develop and deploy your application on Microsoft Data Centers (or on MS Cloud), you should use MS Azure, SQL Azure Database, .NET Services.  You don't need to own IIS web server.
