What are some of the Benefits of Microsoft Azure for Business?

Software & Apps

Flexibility & Scalability

One of the biggest benefits of Microsoft Azure is it’s ability to scale with your business. As your business grows, so can your Azure resources.

Azure’s flexible features allow you to scale your resources and storage as your business needs it, just pay for what you require. If you need more resources or storage, just increase them and pay the difference, it’s that simple. Similarly you may find that at some times of the year your usage demand is lower than in peak times, again you can scale your resources to suit your requirements. 

Cost Effective

Migrating from a physical infrastructure to Azure can also be more cost effective for your business. If you want to upgrade your physical infrastructure you either have to purchase costly physical parts that are compatible with your existing equipment or upgrade to a completely new physical machine (which is done on average in business every 5 years). With Microsoft Azure you need only pay for what you require, if you require more resources, upgrade your cloud recourses and they will be available to you instantly, no waiting for parts or equipment to arrive or to migrate to a new machine, just upgrade when you need it and pay the difference. Plus, you have the added benefit that you do not need to assign physical space to this equipment or pay to power or cool the equipment, Microsoft worry about that part. It is that simple.

Backup & Disaster Recovery

Microsoft Azure offers best in class Backup & Disaster Recovery solutions for your business with unlimited scaling options. Backing up your data to Azure is a Cost Effective alternative to on site physical backups, and with Site Recovery you can recover your data to a second site or machine or directly in the cloud. Coud data recovery in Azure is up to 66% faster that recovering to an on premise machine, meaning you will get back up and running with your data far quicker. Azure’s Geo-Redundant Storage will also mean that your data can be replicated to a secondary global data centre to add a higher level of redundancy to your data. On top of this, Azure can guarantee 99 years of data retention in their data centres, unlike many of the physical data retention solutions that you will find in businesses. And if that were not enough, they have more than 50 globally recognised compliance certifications for their services. 

Security

When we talk about security in IT we could be talking about a range of different topics, Cyber Security, User Account Security, Endpoint Security, Ransomware Security and more. But when it comes to cloud computing and Microsoft Azure, we are talking about all of these things and more. Azure is able to utilise a wide range of security technologies, controls, policies and more, which allows Microsoft to offer better Digital and Physical security that almost any company would not be able to achieve on their own. On top of this, they provide further tools to help you increase that security in the form of Azure Active Directory, Single Sign On, Multi Factor Authentication, Identity & Access Management, Conditional Access, Privileged Identity Management and much more. Meaning that your Applications and Data will be kept secure.

Azure SQL

Many businesses use one or more business applications/software that require an SQL Database (or Databases) to be able to operate. These often require costly physical or virtual machines to be able to operate as well as monitor, maintain and in many cases upgrade if the database queries are very resource intensive. Microsoft Azure however can offer multiple alternate services to on-premise servers dedicated to these tasks in the form of Azure SQL Database as a service or SQL on Azure Virtual Machines. Many businesses opt for Azure SQL as a service due to it’s easy and seamless migration on top of its lower administration and management costs. On top of this you also have the added benefits of Flexibility, Reduced Overhead Costs and enhanced Data Recovery, Redundancy & Recovery solutions.
