Reason To Migrate To Azure

Migrating your datacenter to an IaaS platform like Azure is a big step for small businesses. There are many benefits to moving to the cloud – like increased productivity, better agility and decreased costs – but getting there is a daunting process.

Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform used for building, deploying, and managing applications and services via a global network of Microsoft data centers. It includes an ever-growing collection of integrated services related to analytics, databases, identity, and storage management.

The benefits offered by the Azure are unique and business-centered. To mention a few, they are

 

  •  Step by Step Migration

Azure allows users to migrate a complete solution to the cloud with ease. This would be really useful when first moving to Azure, saving you time, money and effort running into complex issues and not quite knowing what to do.

  • Azure is Secure

Security should really be number one on your list of requirements for a cloud-based service. Luckily, Azure is one of the most secure platforms on the planet. Microsoft detects a whopping 1.5 million attempts a day to compromise its systems. We aren’t just fending off those attacks – we’re also learning from them in order to provide the best and most up to date security system to every Azure customer. You also have the ability to back up your data in different locations around the globe to ensure that if something were to happen to one of the datacenters, your project is safe and backed up in another datacenter.

  • Reliability

Being able to access your project at any time (looking at you, late night developers!) is vital for a cloud based service, especially if you have multiple teams working on the same project in different time zones for example. Azure uses ready-to-use failovers* and load balancers** to ensure that your project is always up and running.

  • Scalability

As previously mentioned, scalability is going to be an issue if you have a sudden influx of traffic, or if you predict a large amount of traffic and you in fact have much less. With Azure you can simply add or remove more computing power as and when you need it. It really is that simple. Azure will also keep track of the traffic associated with your solution/project and can automatically adjust to meet your needs if you’d like it to do that.

  • A Great Insight Into Data

The data that you receive from the use of your solution will all be tracked in Azure, and there’s no better way of visualizing this data than with Power BI. Using Power BI you could learn how much the average spend on your store could be, how much time someone is spending watching your videos or even how
