Microsoft Azure

The pressures of taking your products and services to market do not need to be compounded by decisions over IT infrastructure. The ability to run the applications you need when you need them is critical to a business and its revenues. Microsoft Azure provides exactly what you need as you need it from state of the art data centres around the world. The power to deliver test and develop, applications, storage, networking, analytics and web in minutes securely to anyone gives you the edge.

Microsoft Azure can many different ways but essentially the model is the same, do away with any large upfront investment and instead operate:

Hybrid – Private and Azure Cloud running together to provide a fluid infrastructure which meet compliance and legislative demands.

Azure only – Run all your Infrastructure, Platform and Software services and pay monthly.

Azure on demand – your applications run in Azure only when required and can be charged per minute.
