Why Consider Cloud Technology?

The average small-to-medium enterprise spends between 3 and 7 percent of revenue on IT services. As you’re developing your business growth plans, managing IT costs for expanding infrastructure becomes a vital part of your strategy. You can:

  • Keep services in-house, meaning equipment, software, and data are on-premise at your Company. 
  • Or you can rely on cloud technologies, with IT services delivered via the Internet through an external host. 

To help you choose what’s best for your organisation, think about computing solutions as cash. You can keep your money at home in a safe, or you can deposit it with a bank. If you keep your money in your house, you can only access it while you’re there, and you’re responsible for protecting it. A bank stores your cash (and other people’s money) offsite and commits to providing a safe, secure facility for each customer. When you rely on a bank, you can access your funds from multiple locations using a process the bank created.

Cloud technologies like Microsoft Azure are akin to a bank, providing you with a robust range of services you can access on-demand like virtual computing, storage, and networking. With Azure’s subscription-based services, you have the flexibility to design a program that aligns with your Company’s needs. Importantly, you have the option to shift all computing to cloud technologies or to supplement on-premise services. You can keep some “cash” at home and move some “funds” to the “bank.”

What Azure can do for your Company

Microsoft’s cloud technology offers the following advantages to subscribers:

  • Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
    • PaaS empowers your team to create web and mobile apps and solutions without having to invest in the purchase and maintenance of an operating system. Web apps easily integrate with on-premise, giving your internal and external teams secure access within your firewall.
      • Azure supports several programming languages, including Python, JavaScript, Node.js, and .NET, and enables developers to test applications, share code, and monitor issues. Plus, your team can use Azure with several internet protocols and open standards such as HTTP, XML, REST, and SOAP.
      • The AutoScale feature in Azure Web Apps automatically adjusts resources to keep up with traffic, delivering performance when you need it and saving you money in off-peak times.
    • IaaS lets you outsource infrastructure services like data storage {structured and unstructured}, networking, backup, and recovery, reducing overhead because you only pay for what you use.
      • Computing services help you launch and manage virtual machines, containers, and batch jobs. You can also configure resources with the Azure Cloud with public or private IP addresses.
  • Security
    • Microsoft’s best-in-class security process follows the international standard ISO 27018 for cloud privacy. Azure’s design uses the security development lifecycle (SDL) process, and it ranks #1 among more than 50 compliance coverages.
      • With Azure, you can implement single sign-on for iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac cloud apps, or you can add multi-factor authentication for additional levels of security.
  • Scalable, Flexible Services
    • Whether you have 20 or 2,000 users, Azure ensures your applications run efficiently without additional coding. You can easily change settings to increase the processing capacity needed by each application.
  • Hybrid Capabilities
    • Azure provides a reliable platform for interactions between your on-premise and Cloud computing. Hybrid capabilities include content delivery networks (CDNs), virtual private networks (VPNs), and ExpressRoute connections.
      • Features with CDNs include media playback, on-demand streaming, digital rights protection, encoding, and indexing.
  • Easy Integration with Microsoft Tools
    • Office 365, SharePoint, and Outlook services seamlessly merge with Azure. The platform uses virtual on-premise solutions like Windows and Linux.
  • Support for Shifts to IoT
    • If your organisation is moving to IoT industry solutions, you can use the Azure IoT hub to manage and monitor all devices. You’ll have access to insights about your services that will help you lower costs, reduce complexity, and improve team and customer experiences.
  • Analytics Capabilities
    • Azure facilitates analysis with SQL and NoSQL services and offers built-in tools for discovering insights to fuel decision-making and business process improvements.
      • With Azure SQL, you’ll get a relational database without investing in a SQL server.  
    • If you’re seeking Blockchain as a Service (BaaS), Machine Learning, or Cognitive APIs, Azure is the ideal cloud platform for you.
  • Backup and Disaster Recovery
    • Azure allows backups in most languages, any operating system, from any location, and on your schedule (daily, weekly, quarterly). If you’re currently using tape backup, Azure is a useful addition with offsite replication, up to 99 years of retention, and minimal costs to launch and maintain the service.  Because Azure stores 3 versions of your data in 3 unique locations and another 3 copies in a remote Azure data centre, the risk of data loss is low.

How Microsoft Manages Privacy in a Public Cloud

Microsoft’s online Trust Centre addresses the data security and regulatory compliance concerns shared by many cloud subscribers. Here you’ll find information about Microsoft’s security, privacy, and compliance projects. Data use stays within the customer’s service plan, with no disclosure to third parties (including the government) unless the law requires it.

Quick Benefit Checklist

Microsoft Azure is the right choice for your Company if you need a comprehensive cloud solution that:

  • Supports most operating systems, languages, tools, or frameworks
  • Maintains 99.5% availability SLA (service level agreement)
  • Provides 24/7 technical support
