    Microsoft Azure

Go to new heights with the economic, flexible and scalable power of Microsoft Azure.

Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform and infrastructure for building, deploying, managing and scaling applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters in over 19 regions. The powerful combination of Azure’s infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) capabilities help organizations move faster, do more and save money.

BDO Digital has a wealth of experience moving mid-markets organizations to the cloud. We work closely with you to understand your business processes and develop the perfect roadmap for your cloud or hybrid environment, reducing your infrastructure costs while freeing up your IT team to work on more strategic projects. So, why are organizations making the move to Azure?

  • Flexible: Azure can handle any workload as either an IaaS or a PaaS.
  • Open: Use your choice of operating systems, frameworks and tools.
  • Solid: Bet your business on guaranteed SLAs and application scalability.
  • Cost: Pay for only what you use.


UTILIZE RESOURCES YOU ALREADY HAVE

Azure does not make you choose between your datacenter, service provider or public cloud. This hybrid-ready solution allows customers to leverage resources from all three, enabling IT to expand their options without adding complexity. With Azure, data storage, backup and recovery are more efficient than ever before.
 

AZURE INTEGRATED SERVICES

As the leading cloud for modern business, Azure brings together a collection of integrated services, allowing organizations to work with a great deal of flexibility. From Windows to Linux, SQL Server to Oracle, C# to Java, the Microsoft cloud solution supports a variety of different operating systems, programming languages, tools and framework to meet your needs.

With 24×7 technical support, round-the-clock health monitoring and 99.95% availability SLA, Azure is always up and always ready to go. Additionally, the ability to quickly scale up or down combined with Microsoft’s commitment to match competitor prices means you only pay for what you use.
