Join the Cloud revolution with Microsoft Azure

The time has arrived. The days when you could overlook the idea of moving your business operations to the Cloud are long gone.

For an increasing number of businesses, the Cloud is now essential. Put simply, if you’re not in the Cloud, your rivals who are already there could easily outpace you, growing faster and more efficiently than you possibly could without it.

Why choose the Cloud?

Moving to the Cloud has both short-and long-term advantages for your organisation.

The Cloud is…

Cost-effective

 

Forget buying and maintaining your own servers and forget frustrating capacity constraints that hold your business back. Once you’ve completed your move across, the Cloud is like a household utility; you only pay for what you consume.

Flexible

 

Cloud resources can be easily rearranged whenever your needs change. On-premises servers can be much more of difficult to reconfigure, taking up time and resources and interrupting normal business operations.

Safe and secure

 

Cyber security is an increasingly important focus for organisations of all sizes. With the Cloud, you have the benefit of some of the world’s top cyber security experts working on your behalf, leaving you to focus on your business.

Great for sustainability

Moving to the public Cloud can make a seriously, positive impact on your sustainability targets. Your direct energy usage on servers is replaced by much lower energy use that is shared with many other customers, in efficient data centres designed to minimise the impact on the climate.

A launchpad for innovation

Cloud computing is a flexible platform for developing and running software using infrastructure that scales with your needs. Unlike when you run your own infrastructure, you can simply spin up the resources you need, as you need them and have them available immediately.

Why build the future of your business on Azure?

Microsoft Azure is a highly scalable, highly secure public Cloud platform. It lets your business move to the Cloud with the support of powerful, flexible technology that can be tuned to your exact needs, with resources that can grow as you do. Azure expands what your business can achieve, meaning you’ll be ready for whatever the future holds.

Azure’s advantages for your business include:

Adaptability

In addition to public Cloud servers, Azure can be run in private data centres and on the edge of networks as a hybrid deployment, fitting your needs no matter how complex they are.

Consistency

Use Azure’s virtual machines to deliver a consistent software experience to all of your users.

Plentiful storage

Back up your data to cloud storage and host databases to feed your business processes and apps.

Empowered developers

Develop and host applications using Azure’s suite of flexible developer tools built for the Cloud, like Visual Studio. And you can easily build accessibility features into your apps with features like AI-powered text-to-speech and computer vision.

A smart, efficient future

Azure is your stepping stone to a new generation of business automation and efficiency, with AI and machine learning capabilities to help you work smarter and more efficiently.

A thriving ecosystem

A vast number of third-party products and services can enhance your Azure experience and they’re all accessible through the Azure Marketplace.

There when you need it

Based on a network of more than 160 data centres in over 60 regions around the world, Azure is reliably available wherever and whenever you need it.

You’re in control

Azure offers powerful tools to help you keep on top of your spending, with automation to make sure you can react dynamically as your usage changes.

Explore Azure with our guides

Azure provides an incredible number of options and opportunities for your business, but there’s a lot to consider when you begin to plan your migration. To help make sense of it all, we’ve prepared a collection of guides to what Azure has to offer.
