Realize real value in the cloud with Azure
Many organizations have already adopted Office 365, but are still hesitant to fully move their workloads to the cloud. Despite all the benefits, the transition is rarely easy and raises many questions:
- Which workloads need to be moved?
- When is the right time to do this?
- Which strategy should be preferred?
6 good reasons for your move to the cloud
When setting up your Azure architecture, you can make targeted cost savings. However, proper planning is critical here. You can tailor all services to your needs and turn off unused resources. High investments and a long capital commitment are thus no longer necessary. Billing is done on a monthly basis. This ensures transparency.
Focus on your core business
Operating a high-performance IT infrastructure requires a great deal of in-house expertise and manpower. The need for specialists is correspondingly high. Thanks to the cloud, issues can be outsourced and the services of a managed service provider can be used to ensure IT availability. Companies can thus concentrate on their core business again.
Significantly more security
Traditional security strategies are no longer enough; increasing, extensive networking and cloud transformation require state-of-the-art security measures. Securing with cloud-hosted tools enables capabilities beyond what on-premises models can provide: Security features can be enabled and scaled up faster, threats are detected earlier, and overall patch management is better.
The Microsoft network connects more than 60 Azure regions, more than 220 Azure data centers to more than 170 Edge sites, and spans the globe with more than 165,000 miles of terrestrial as well as undersea fiber optic cable. The reliability of this global network is key. With Azure Cloud, Microsoft has built a software-driven cloud-scale network that gives customers more flexibility and control to support the rapid growth and ever-changing demands of the cloud.
Rapid scaling of
applications and infrastructure
Demand planning for fluctuating or rapidly increasing workloads is not an easy task in the on-premises environment. In the cloud, such requirements are easier to implement. Services can scale automatically to meet demand and handle workloads. They scale up to provide capacity during peak loads. Scaling automatically returns to normal when the peak load subsides.
Simpler to innovative business models
Data migration is essentially about moving existing workloads to the cloud infrastructure. Here, a variety of innovations can add tremendous value. Partners get a secure and scalable IaaS/PaaS solution on which they can develop and operate their own solutions. The advantage: In contrast to operating your own infrastructure, this can be scaled centrally, vertically and quickly at any time according to current needs.
