Power your business with cloud solutions from Microsoft Azure
Whether it's an all-in cloud deployment or just a hosted email, most businesses are utilizing cloud services in their environments. If your company, like many others, is considering a permanent move to a remote workforce, you're likely considering a move to the cloud. And Azure may be the solution for you.
Microsoft Azure is a full-service cloud offering. It has over 200 different products like cloud servers, applications, chatbots, machine learning tools, desktops and much more. With datacenters serving 140 countries, Azure is an excellent fit for your business.
Migration can be tough, but Business Data Solutions can help
Despite Azure's allure, it doesn't come without challenges. Migrating your servers, data, applications and maybe even your desktops to the cloud can be a hard task. For many small to medium-sized businesses, they just don't have the IT staff with the right skills to make the leap alone. That's where we can help you.
Business Data Solutions' Microsoft Azure support solution
You know your business, and we know Azure. We'll take the time to understand your business first. Then we’ll develop an action plan to migrate your environment with zero unplanned downtime.
There are three primary ways to migrate your computing environment to Microsoft Azure. From longest to shortest time to completion:
- Attrition/New – You have the option of maintaining your existing environment, and any new computing resources that you need can be created in Azure. This also goes for attrition. When one of your systems reaches its end of life, you can replace it in Azure. While this is the safest option, we don't recommend it. It could take years and doesn’t effectively utilize Azure. However, our cloud engineers can develop a plan for this if you decide it's the best option for you.
- Hybrid – Our team can create a hybrid solution where we move the simpler workflows to Azure first and the more complex workflows in stages. This will let you get comfortable with the service and help you better understand the billing process. This is the solution most businesses choose and the one we recommend.
- Full – The fastest and most efficient way to make use of Azure’s resources is to migrate your full computing environment at once. Our team can prepare a solution to migrate your entire server and application environment in one cutover, with no downtime to your team or your customers. This option carries more risk and is more suited to smaller and less complex environments.
