Microsoft Azure is one of the top cloud computing platforms in today’s technology-driven world. The platform has been around since 2006 and has been gaining a lot of traction as more businesses migrate to the cloud.
Not only does Azure allow companies to save a few bucks, but it also provides faster content delivery, which will keep customers satisfied in the long run.
Still not convinced that Microsoft Azure is right for you and your business? Here are five benefits why you should migrate your business to Microsoft Azure:
1. Reduces Latency
We live in an age where instant gratification is expected. Users require quick access to the information they need, or they’re left unsatisfied.
Now with Microsoft’s newly launched local South African data centres, users can expect reduced latency and more data control. These data centres provide content delivery and optimal user experience, all at a faster rate. Sounds great, right?
Users can rest assured that these data centres will still meet local compliance standards.
2. Saves Costs
With Microsoft’s pay-as-you-go pricing, users can save costs. This pricing method allows customers to only pay for the space they use.
Microsoft Azure attracts many organisations by keeping the company’s IT budgets in mind.
3. Secure & Compliant
Microsoft Azure has a strong focus on ensuring security. By using the standard security model (Detect, Assess, Diagnose, Stabilise, and Close) combined with strong cybersecurity controls, Microsoft Azure has established itself as a leader in laaS security.
With those security measures in place, the end user is also protected. This level of protection is essential, especially considering security threats are multiplying exponentially.
Microsoft Azure will ensure your data is safe and will keep end users from threats by providing user-friendly services which increase their protection.
Microsoft Azure offers high availability and redundancy in data centres despite temporary failures (i.e. in services, datacentres, hardware, etc.).
Azure provides continuous performance and offers a Service Level Agreement (SLA) of 99.9% for all its users.
A good cloud service provider should guarantee scalability for its users. Microsoft Azure is no exception.
When your business suddenly needs more computing power, Azure allows you to scale your requires with the click of a button. And the good news is, you only pay for what you use!
Hopefully, these five benefits convinced you that Microsoft Azure is the best fit for your business. It will provide fast service and you’ll only pay for what you use!
