Cloud Computing & Microsoft Azure :: Small & Medium Businesses
As a business owner do you hesitate when it comes to moving your business applications to the cloud for fear that its not cost effective? What if there were a system designed just for small to medium sized businesses that would grow with you, and had no up-front costs? It might sound too good to be true, but in fact, Microsoft has come up with a system that does all these things and more. Welcome to cloud computing with Azure.
The Microsoft Azure cloud computing platform gives Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs) the ability to move critical business applications to the cloud without investing in expensive infrastructure. Azure is an industry leader in Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) providing options for private, public or hybrid cloud computing solutions.
With so many different options and applications, Azure can be tailored to your unique business environment and increase productivity by allowing your employees to work from virtually anywhere. Cloud hosting also lets businesses take advantage of industry specific platforms that can minimize in-house IT management and upfront costs.
Designed with SMBs in mind, one of the largest advantages that Azure has over other cloud computing platform providers is their ZERO upfront costs. Azure accommodates by scaling up or down based on current demand, allowing you to pay for only what you use. This solution is designed to grow with your business, minimizing upfront fees and high maintenance costs.
Azure manages and deploys business applications via a network of Microsoft datacenters – offering top line security and reliable backups. Azure supports scalable web applications and integrated services like storage, data, and event website hosting. Eliminate physical storage costs and avoid the rising costs of maintaining aging infrastructure hardware on-premise. You can feel confident that your data is secure as all applications are backed up in multiple locations. All Microsoft Azure customers receive the same level of protection chosen by enterprise customers. This level of security far exceeds typical on-premise firewall protection.
