Azure Landing Zone: fast and secure Azure deployment and configuration

Our Azure Landing Zone clears your path to success in the cloud environment, guided by an expert Azure consultancy.

We’ll apply a blend of proven artefacts to set up an Azure environment that’s tailored to your needs, helping your organisation realise your ambitions quickly and with confidence

An all-in-one solution to setting up an Azure environment

From Fortune 500 companies to local government, organisations of all sizes and sectors are turning to Microsoft Azure to bring their compute, data management, security and app development into the cloud.

You may already have a picture of how your will harness the power of Azure for your organisation. But how you’ll get there may be less clear. Lack of time, resource, expertise or confidence can make it difficult to progress – or even know where to begin.

Content+Cloud’s Azure Landing Zone removes the barriers to setting up an Azure environment. It allows you to deploy a minimum viable product within days while setting the roadmap towards your longer-term adoption goals. Or if you’re already using Azure, it can help you take the next transformative step to maturity

Hybrid Cloud

Azure Landing Zone: the fundamentals

At its core, our Azure Landing Zone provides you with a baseline Azure environment so that you can begin setting up new apps or migrating your existing infrastructure. You’ll quickly be able to rationalise workloads, reduce costs, resolve legacy complexities and manage hybrid environments.

Together, these services will give you the firm foundations for the next phase in your cloud migration, based on three fundamental qualities: speed, security and scalability.


  • A baseline environment, built from a core set of pre-defined artefacts
  • Customisable to your organisation’s needs
  • Agile delivery and built in accordance with DevOps and infrastructure-as-code principles
  • Quicker time to market with a fixed-cost engagement



  • Easily connected to your network, with hub and spokes aligned to organisational structure or applications
  • Designed to scale as new Azure services are added
  • A modular approach allows you to start with solid foundations and expand your Azure footprint as your needs grow


One-click control with our self-service portal

Our self-service portal simplifies Azure, giving anyone in a business with the necessary permissions, the autonomy to deploy, monitor and manage Azure resources securely and compliantly, in a single click.

You’ll be able to get full value from your Azure investment by giving your teams ownership of your IT resources, reducing burdens on central IT and maximising usage while minimising risk.
