What's the difference between Azure and Server 2012?

What is Microsoft Azure?

"Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, a growing collection of integrated services—analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage, and web—for moving faster, achieving more, and saving money. Here’s what else Azure is…."
Technologically they are the same. Azure is built on WS2012. What else would Microsoft use? But they add many services on top of it for PaaS and IaaS. But at the core it's the same OS.
Azure is costly, if you setting up your own high configuration server probably you can choose azure. If you have low traffic sites then shared hosting is the best cost effective
