Cloud – Azure

Access data through the company network
and/or the internet from anywhere at any time.

Cloud computing involves using a network of remote servers, hosted virtually, to store, manage and process data, as well as to run software, applications, IT infrastructure or other services. It’s a concept that many consumers have been used to for years; for example, using Hotmail, iTunes or mobile banking. The cloud provides businesses and users with improved efficiency and business agility, as clients can choose to pay for cloud services by subscription or usage.

Cloud computing is widely supported by companies, allowing those companies to prioritize and channel their internal resources toward meeting their business objectives and differentiating themselves, rather than managing their IT infrastructure. They avoid up-front capital expenditure costs at the same time. Once they decide to move to the cloud, organizations can set up applications and services much more quickly and enjoy improved manageability and reduced maintenance times. Cloud computing gives the IT department the ability to forecast and adjust its resources in line with business demands.

How does it work?

A good analogy is to imagine a cloud as an onion with its many layers inside. The front layers are the parts that end users can “see” and interact with. For example, Facebook and Outlook.com are cloud software services available to consumers on the front end, or the outer layers of the onion. The back end, or the inside layers, are made up of all the permeations of hardware, platforms, applications and software architecture that power the front end.

For corporate and B2B users, cloud use a network mid-layer to connect devices and technology, including computers and smartphones, to centralized resources in a data center. Users access the data center through the company network and/or the internet from anywhere at any time. This is particularly beneficial for companies with employees or partner employees in multiple locations.

Applications that run from the cloud can leverage the widest range of computing power that exists from multiple sites. Working in this way offers flexibility to clients, allowing them to use as little or as much of the resource as they need, as well as the ability to change it at short notice

Using Microsoft Cloud and its services means that the technology infrastructure is run by a third party, rather than on a server hosted within your company. The benefits involve substantial savings and efficiencies in administration and energy consumption, as well as increased availability, capabilities and performance.

By using Office 365, Microsoft Dynamics AX, Microsoft Dynamics CRM and all of the related Microsoft-supported products, information storage and software are held at data centers owned by Microsoft. It’s Microsoft that is responsible for ensuring the availability of each of those services.

Microsoft Cloud’s infrastructure provides IT departments with:

  • Speed and agility of execution, combined with scalability;
  • Freed-up capital by converting CAPEX (capital investments) in IT infrastructure into OPEX (operating expenses);
  • The ability to access and use added services that might otherwise involve very high entry costs if they weren’t cloud-based.

In practice this means that IT professionals can quickly create and deploy servers, install applications, manage services flexibly and generate real-time analysis.

Is Cloud computing safe?

Yes. With Microsoft Cloud, client information and IT architecture are completely secure and compliant to the highest data security and international privacy standards with encryption capabilities up to AES-256. For additional safeguards, Microsoft provides a privacy center for any particularly confidential data. All the privacy and security controls in place give clients the confidence that only the people they want to access their data can. Leveraging third-party cloud computing could improve on the resilience of your existing IT infrastructure. Power loss at specific hosting sites is no longer a concern, and many Microsoft Cloud platforms are backed up in multiple locations, so that if a server at one provider experiences an outage, your data is still fully available.

What are the advantages of Cloud computing?

Mobility: Access your business information from wherever you are and from any wireless device. This competitive advantage enhances a client’s ability to serve customers from anywhere, increasing productivity and results.

Storage capacity: Working in the Microsoft Cloud offers virtually unlimited storage, due to its scalable model. Clients can expand their storage options to meet business needs.

Flexibility: The Microsoft Cloud allows clients to manage periods of high demand and then return to normal processing capabilities.

Affordability: Clients can greatly reduce technology costs by removing the need for any upfront investment and by using the option of an OPEX monthly payment related to required usage. In addition, there’s no need to own expensive technology infrastructure.

Pay-per-use: There are a number of Microsoft Cloud models, which mean clients only pay for what they need and use, with the opportunity to adjust resources and costs as the business grows, for example, by adding or removing services.

Reliability: Microsoft adheres to the highest possible safety standards, as it is fully compliant with international privacy and encryption standards.

Eco-friendly approach: By operating with cloud services, clients can reduce energy consumption and related costs and reduce their carbon footprint, providing significant benefits for the bottom line and the environment.

Is cloud computing suitable for every organization?

Cloud computing provides an enormous range of benefits and gives adopters a competitive edge. Its many variations are transforming the capabilities of businesses around the world.

Medium to large enterprises invariably have the most elaborate hosting arrangements and future needs. Each company will have a multitude of requirements by department, brand and region, plus separate needs at a corporate level. Robust infrastructure is needed to manage high-availability websites and applications. The Microsoft Cloud provides corporate users with powerful, reliable and highly sophisticated IT infrastructure at lower costs, delivering increased efficiency, agility, flexibility and productivity.

The challenge for most small to medium-sized businesses is to grow without necessarily having all the resources in place that they need. Without a large in-house IT department, the Microsoft Cloud frees up the organization to focus on its business goals and access an extensive range of storage, hosting, platform and network services in a cost-effective, flexible and fully scalable way.

The Microsoft Cloud empowers entrepreneurs and start-up businesses to choose from a range of enterprise-standard IT infrastructures, which can be set up and operated quickly for a low capital expenditure rate.
