What is Microsoft Azure?

Microsoft's Azure cloud computing service will allow your business to manage and deploy applications and services through Microsoft's various managed data centres, which are found in 60 different regions around the world. The platform can provide the kind of flexibility, reliability and scalability businesses need and can offer software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) models.

As a general rule, Azure tends to be better suited to hybrid deployments than its main competitor, AWS, meaning it can potentially be used to supplement on-site infrastructure, even if you do not want full replacement. It also works according to a basic consumption model, where you only pay for what you use. If your organisation currently uses Microsoft tools like Active Directory and Microsoft SQL Server, this can also help to make the integration smoother, so this is another factor we will consider during our cloud readiness assessment.

What type of businesses is Microsoft Azure Best Suited for?

Microsoft Azure is suitable for use by businesses of all types and sizes, from small-scale start-ups, right the way through to large-scale enterprises. It is also a platform that offers great functionality and a high level of customisation too. Here at Fifosys, we can work with you on your journey, through the following steps:
