Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud computing services to help your organisation meet its business challenges. Utilising Azure gives Typetec and our customers the freedom to build, manage, and deploy applications and workloads of any size on a massive, global network using your preferred tools and frameworks, meaning that you do not have to reinvent existing solutions to deploy in the cloud.
Azure enables all organisations regardless of size to access enterprise-class cloud infrastructure, bringing forward all of the benefits without the need to invest heavily in new hardware-based or on-premise technologies. Moving to Azure provides your business with the opportunity to increase your productivity, lower your costs, utilise the best in data and system security and access the Azure global network of data centres.
With on-demand access to computing resources, your business can respond to market changes instantly, dramatically reducing procurement timeframes and the fiscal risks associated with expensive hardware purchases, with the added benefit of moving from CapEx to OpEx based expenditure.
Azure offers your business complete cost control as it is a consumption-based platform. You only pay for what you need, when you need it, removing the need to frontload expenditure in providing resources that are only required sporadically or in providing future capacity at the time of initial investment.
Embracing the cloud provides the platform for your business to design, develop, build and teardown solutions, allowing you to test and prove different approaches to your business challenges, without the need to constantly invest in IT solutions.
Azure is the one true hybrid-cloud, allowing your business to continue using the technologies you are familiar with and allow your business to build out to the cloud at a rate and scale that matches your immediate requirements.
Microsoft Azure is built on trust with the emphasis on security from the ground up and is trusted by some of the largest global organisations. Microsoft invests over 1 billion dollars annually in ensuring that they operate the most secure cloud platform. There are currently over 90 different compliance offerings within Azure covering Global, Regional and Industry Specific standards.
