Microsoft has leveraged its constantly-expanding worldwide network of data centers to create Azure, a cloud platform for building, deploying, and managing services and applications, anywhere. Azure lets you add cloud capabilities to your existing network through its platform as a service (PaaS) model, or entrust Microsoft with all of your computing and network needs with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Either option provides secure, reliable access to your cloud hosted data—one built on Microsoft’s proven architecture. Azure provides an ever expanding array of products and services designed to meet all your needs through one convenient, easy to manage platform. Below are just some of the capabilities Microsoft offers through Azure and tips for determining if the Microsoft cloud is the right choice for your organization.
Here are few reasons you should choose a cloud and move to Azure:
Much Faster Than On-premise Solutions
On-premise solutions require new hardware, software updates, and a team to implement them to scale operations and optimize workloads. Of course, this also assumes that the cooling capacity, the power supply and the physical storage space are sufficient.
In Azure, you can use services like Azure AutoScale to dynamically adapt your application to changing demand. This allows you to go up and down automatically based on the metrics. For example, if traffic is expected to increase in a week, you can add 10 times more virtual machines to handle the load.
Increase Productivity & Agility With Azure VM
One of the most powerful features of Azure is the Azure VM. By defining the operating system, language, and workload, you can create your own custom virtual machine in seconds. This is not possible on-premise because several operating systems require multiple machines.
This allows companies to experiment more. You can get tests, development, and feedback faster by working on different virtual machines. This increases flexibility by allowing teams to do more on their machines. The ability to switch between Linux and Windows with a different set of tools and applications on the same computer is a powerful feature for employees.
Azure Is Low Cost Than On-premises Solutions
This is one of the biggest business concerns and the ultimate question. Is investing in cloud solutions financially significant for your business? In most cases, this also has a sufficient margin. With Azure, you do not need to invest in new machines, new infrastructure, or replace old servers. Nor is it necessary to reserve space for infrastructure and servers. Azure offers flexible expenses. It means the following:
Pay as needed.
You pay more to have more.
Save energy, space and cooling costs.
Azure Is More Secure Than On-Premises Solutions
Security is the main reason they want to stay there. Some people think that locally hosted data provides better data security than cloud storage. But it’s a myth. Services such as Azure Active Directory are another benefit for which Azure is superior to on-premise storage solutions.
Active Directory is a cloud-based, multi-tenant, directory and identity management service. IT managers can give employees single access (SSO) to multiple cloud-based SaaS applications, such as SharePoint and Office 365.
We offer a complete suite of identity management services, including
Inscription of the device.
Multi factor authentication.
Role-based access control.
Self-service group management.
Monitor the use of the application.
These services ensure the security and accessibility of your business to only the users concerned by the most important information.
In addition Azure not only provides easy access to data, security and cloud storage, it also gives your business more features. Provides a complete delivery pipeline to organizations such as:
Control of sources
EXPERTISE At Dalwax, we’ve tackled several challenging Azure transformation journeys for our customers, by re-architecting and rewriting their applications from the ground up to be Azure-native. Along the way, we learned some key lessons on how to re-architect applications to be modular, scalable, fault tolerant and ultra-responsive.
PaaS & Container Architectures
We are experts at converting traditional stateful applications into modern applications leveraging Azure PaaS services and container architectures for total control over scalability and resilience.
While modernizing applications we leverage an Agile DevOps driven approach that enables application delivery transformation by enabling toolchains and processes that support continuous integration and continuous delivery.
We can help develop and implement best-fit architectures and components depending on whether your application is heavy on end-user interactions (predominantly user driven and UI / UX is important) vs Event driven (IoT and business process automation Intelligent apps).
Corporate compliance, governance and performance considerations can mandate application components to remain within Private cloud or existing on-premise environments, and still talk to the Public cloud components. Our experts can help design solutions for optimal performance and scale.
While monolithic, on-premise applications are perceived to be secure due to the ability to implement centralized security policies while behind corporate firewalls, with our knowledge and expertise we can help deploy enhanced security postures within your Azure cloud environments.
We can help businesses efficiently leverage ready-to-use Azure cloud services and solution components to reduce development time while benefitting from the inherent cloud native features of the services. Our experts strike the right balance between upfront vs ongoing benefits of using these services.
