Azure is an example of leveraging a worldwide network of data centers, a cloud based platform to build, deploy and manage services and applications as per convenience.
Azure adds cloud benefits to your existing framework with its (PaaS) model, or entrust Microsoft with all of your network requirements with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Both the options securely grant access to cloud hosted data( built on Microsoft’s proven architecture.) Azure provides an archive of products and services tailored to cater all your needs within existing infrastructure through all inclusive platform which is easy to manage, secure to trust by.
Why are businesses trusting Microsoft Azure to cater their business requirements?
There is a notion that on-premises data accessibility has no future. Self- hosted data centers have become archaic as they have mainframes and dial-up modems before them but now are drifted away by security oriented cloud solutions.
Amazon Web Services (AWS), perennial computing giant IBM, and Apple’s ubiquitous iCloud are the lead players in cloud computing but many companies like 3M, BMW, and GE are going for Microsoft Azure.
The following points don’t allow the lead players to gain an edge over Microsoft Azure:
- Flexibility. Microsoft Azure spins up new services and geometrically uplifts your data storage benefits on the fly. A static data center requires new hardware and OS purchasing, provisioning, and deployment to compete with IT needs. The process is cumbersome and time-consuming. But Azure is a step up from the traditional methods which is flexible and adaptable to work processes.
- Cost. Azure solutions don’t only scale up infrastructure but also make it cheaper.Infrastructure devices like routers, load balancers add up to thousands of dollars but the IT expertise is required to run infrastructure devices which amount to major payroll overhead. As Microsoft’s massive infrastructure and expertise are the base of Azure which cuts down IT budgets by head-turning percentages.
- Disaster recovery. Sometimes the unthinkable becomes the immediate reality with the dreadful consequences. One of the important benefits of Microsoft Azure lay in its speedy geographically decentralized infrastructure which gives birth to seamless disaster recovery plans. It ensures the data recovery of critical application from redundant sites during recovery periods within mere minutes. Azure renders continuous service delivery even when disaster strikes thus doesn’t let disasters to hit businesses.
