Modernize & Innovate with Azure Cloud
Whether you’re new to the cloud, considering cloud or already loving the cloud, our Microsoft-certified experts are here to consult and collaborate with you, so you understand the best way for your organization to leverage cloud capabilities, securely and cost-effectively.
Microsoft Azure provides a comprehensive collection of cloud-based alternatives to onsite hardware and services, and is a powerful, constantly evolving solution offering a broad portfolio of tools to build and develop apps, store and secure your data, or run an internet-hosted enterprise.
This is all without the cumbersome job of installing and managing hardware or server software. Plus, with its pay-as-you-go and pay-for-what-you-use model, you can set predictable costs and put the expensive hardware refresh cycles behind you.
There are four main business drivers for moving to Azure:
- Scalability: Azure is feature-rich platform that opens up a lot of doors as your business scales
- Cost: Shift from a CapEx model to an OpEx model and only pay for what you need
- Security: In addition to the physical security of a public datacenter, Azure has a plethora of security features you can enable to improve your security posture
- Manageability: Reduce the daily mundane tasks around server maintenance
What are the Benefits of a Public Cloud like Azure?
While there are many, many reasons to migrate your business to Azure, here are some of the most impactful benefits:
Here’s what our customers are saying
“I’ve been so impressed with the sheer agility of Azure and the ease of support with Managed Solution. The whole team was very flexible with our needs and worked with us to have a resources available the weekend of our cutover. They’ve been willing to do whatever it takes to be successful.”
Doug Cyphers, Vice President of IT, WD-40 Company
Azure Services & Features
Azure is an incredibly robust platform and continues to expand its offering suite, adding new features to its already comprehensive product and service portfolio.
Here’s a few of its high-level abilities:
Communication Services. Add voice and video calling, chat, and SMS text message capabilities to mobile apps, desktop applications, and websites all with just a few lines of code. You can also enable end-to-end communication scenarios with both inbound and outbound calling, eliminate unsolicited calls or texts through Azure’s verification services and integrate into existing, on-premises equipment and networks with SIP. And, the great thing is, these capabilities can be used on virtually any platform and device.
With built-in AI, Azure empowers organizations of all sizes to protect their most sensitive assets with a broad range of security tools — from user behavior analytics alongside threat intelligence for Azure Sentinel; multi-cloud security posture management; to Double Encryption for data at rest and transit (just to name a few) — your organization is poised to keep bad actors and data thieves where they belong: out, so you can direct more energy in, and focus attention towards the things that matter most.
From brand new spatial analysis capabilities through Azure Cognitive Computer Vision Service (which uses advanced AI models to gain insights into head counts, distance between individuals and more) to achieving agility and resiliency via Azure Cognitive Metrics Advisor with the power to capture potential network device failures and run root cause analysis, customers now have the ability to build powerful, custom machine learning models without data science expertise.
With remote work at an all-time high, being able to connect, communicate and access shared platforms, wherever you are, is more important than ever before. Azure Arc provides the flexibility to innovate anywhere with Azure. Azure Arc does two key things. One, it brings Azure management capabilities to any infrastructure, and two, it enables Azure services to run anywhere. Azure continues to add more innovation to its global access, including enabled data services, allowing users to seamlessly organize and govern Windows and Linux servers across their multi-cloud environment, all via the Azure portal.
