The latest fad in business technology is moving to the cloud, and the prospect is nothing but exciting. But what does it mean for you and the enterprise? Why move to Azure?
The cloud is an interconnection of remote servers over the web. This frees up the local server or the user’s computer for more specialized and less engaging tasks.
There are different cloud servers, each with its function. For example, one runs the applications, another processes data or manages it, while the other stores it, among others. So what are the benefits of migrating to Azure? Why move to the cloud?
1) Reduced Cost of Infrastructure
The cost of maintaining a local server includes installation and updating, maintaining a dedicated IT staff, and having a climate-controlled room can be very expensive in the long run. Microsoft Azure eliminates the need for a physical server and its expenses.
2) You can Scale Resources
With Microsoft Azure, you only pay what you need. If your business suddenly increases, we can scale the servers to handle the windfall.
3) Ease of Accessibility
Azure Cloud Services allow access to your data at any location and at any time. Sometimes, you don’t even need a VPN to gain access to your data, any time of the day.
4) Data Security
Microsoft Azure data centers are some of the most secure and they keep your data protected from natural disasters. With multiple data centers and storage options, your data is stored in at least three separate nodes. With the help of a Microsoft Azure partner, you can define the backup schedule in terms of extent and frequency.
5) Saves Time
The number of hours spent in configuring, planning and installing virtual machines is quite significant. Microsoft Azure only takes minutes to have everything set up in new virtual machines. The azure hosting services built-in integration works seamlessly with Windows virtual environment for a quick and painless backup.
