Are considering adopting Microsoft Azure into your business but wondered how this will enhance your business?
Microsoft Azure is a cloud computer service which is ideal for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications and services through Microsoft-managed data centres.
With over 95% of Fortune businesses trusting Azure and 54 regions worldwide using the cloud service, more than any other cloud provider, you’re in safe hands. Microsoft invests One Billion in US dollars per year in the security to protect customers data from cyberthreats
This is a useful tool for your business for numerous reasons.
Cloud computing eliminates the expense of setting up and running on-site data centres, which often have added costs such as employing staff and buying and maintaining land, buildings and computer hardware. The cloud allows businesses to access the computer resources they need in real time to match their business needs on demand.
Security is a key focus of cloud providers, who invest huge sums of money into securing their infrastructure. Cloud service providers typically also offer a broad set of policies, compliance, technologies and controls that strengthen your security posture by protecting your data, apps and infrastructure from threats.
Through hosting your Enterprise Resource Planning software in Azure you can be assured that should there be a problem you can retrieve your data within minutes rather than hours, due to regular back-ups in the cloud. This decentralised disaster recovery plan reduces the stress of backing up sensitive data.
Everything you need
As the Azure services are bespoke, there are hundreds of combinations of services available to you and therefore it can be tailored specifically for your business needs as they are at the moment, with the possibility of making additions as and when you need them without the need for updated hardware.
Cloud providers continuously update their data centre networks with the latest-generation hardware, providing you with fast, efficient computing resources that never go obsolete and would be more costly to implement in a single data centre.
Microsoft Azure enables your employees to access data while on the move, remotely, working from home or abroad. This offers you and your employees greater flexibility and fewer restrictions.
Global Scale Cloud computing runs on data centres around the world, providing overall resiliency and reliability by allowing your data to be backed up in more than one geographic location. This also allows your IT resources to be delivered from specific geographic locations when required.
