It’s no exaggeration to say that Microsoft Azure, released in 2010, is a game changer. This flexible, cloud computing service offers more than 60 computer services, the most widely used of which include IaaS (infrastructure as a service) that allows companies to create virtual Windows and Linux machines without having in-house servers. PaaS (platform as a service), which helps developers easily and quickly publish apps and websites. Cloud storage services; a cloud-based document database; advanced messaging services and a global content delivery service.
The breadth of services on Azure is so vast that it can be adapted for virtually any business model.
However, the large number of services included in Microsoft Azure is just the beginning. This product offers a myriad of other benefits:
Data security is among every company’s chief concerns. Microsoft offers some of the most advanced data security technology on the planet. They provide some tools, such as Threat Intelligence, Advanced Threat Analytics, Azure Information Protection and Multi-Factor Authorization that allow users to monitor risk levels in real time.
2. High availability and scalability.
Since Microsoft has data centers all over the globe, there area few areas of the world where Azure’s full services are not available, also, the redundancy of having so many data centers means minimal downtime for power outages or weather. Like most cloud services, Azure can be ramped up and scaled back easily to match your business highs and lows.
Azure offers a pay-as-you-go payment plan, which means your business doesn’t have a substantial initial investment as you do when you own your servers and equipment. When you use the IaaS and SaaS services, you’ll also save on office space, utilities and staff to maintain servers.
While a large number of services included with Microsoft Azure is one of its strongest selling points, it can be challenging for those who don’t work with this service regularly to know which parts are most applicable and can be most useful to your business. That’s where we come in. At Lan Infotech, we’ve been working with Azure since its testing phase, and we understand what it can do and what it limits are. Together, our staff and yours can put together a plan that allows you to get the most from Azure.
