At Virtual IT, we love the cloud. We've blogged before about Office 365 and host Exchange email, but what underpins all of those services? It's Microsoft Azure, of course ...
Virtual IT are certified partners working with many businesses to provide scalable, efficient, cost-effective and resilient systems using Microsoft Azure!
Moving your business into the cloud is very straightforward. Yes, we can use Exchange email and Office 365 to run our day-to-day front end business, and cloud storage is easy to come by for our files, but what about when we need something a little more complicated?
Microsoft Azure lets you build, test, deploy and manage applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed data centres.
"Ok, that sounds complicated, doesn't it?"
Well, imagine your entire business running in the cloud. You never have to worry about if your website is available or not, you are assured that all your back-end data is secure and know that all the processes and systems you have running on Microsoft Azure are available to all of your employees, worldwide, 24 hours a day.
Microsoft Azure offers a 99.95% uptime guarantee and if, for some reason, there's an issue, your IT support provider can either log in and resolve it manually (at Virtual IT, we spot and fix many problems before our customers even realise something is wrong), or you can let the automated systems take over and fix it themselves.
Using Microsoft Azure, you only pay for what you need. Use IIS for your website, use SQL for your data, use SSL to make it all secure and then connect your offices, users, partners and devices as and when needed.
As business increases, Microsoft Azure scales up the power you need to ensure constant availability. And it virtualizes your systems around the world, so an office in Singapore or New Zealand will get the same level of performance as your head office in London will.
To further improve performance, the Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN) caches images, audio and video content for quicker delivery around the world.
Need to connect your supply chain? Want to monitor equipment in the field? Would you like to see data from your production lines? Would you like to see orders from your website sent directly to your fulfilment centres? Want to hear from your customers and help them before a problem ever arises?
