The Azure Advantage
The Gold Standard
Azure sets the benchmark for public, private and hybrid cloud integrations. Organisations across the globe already recognise Azure as the most trusted provider of pure cloud and hybrid intrastructure. In fact more than 95% of Fortune 500 companies already use Azure.
Seamless Hybrid Cloud
Azure enables the simplest migration path for your existing Active Directory infrastructure and resources. Hybrid cloud can further benefit from Azure AD and Azure AD DS. Your on-premise infrastructure can all be managed, and backed up, from Azure.
Return on Investment
Only Azure can holistically integrate into your running operations by taking advantage of your existing investment in Microsoft applications and other technologies. When it comes to Windows Server licensing there are significant discounts available when using the licenses you already own.
Pricing advantages with Azure
Save as much as 40% when you extend your existing Windows Server or SQL Server license (with Software Assurance) to Azure. Save even more, up to 80%, with 1 year and 3 year reservations. With the consumption metering model, you only pay for what you use. Nuage helps you to find the cost savings in your deployment.
It’s less expensive
Did you know that AWS is up to 5 time more expensive than Azure? Only with Azure do you have the ability to transfer your licensing and workloads without the need to make considerable reinvestment.
Free Security Updates
When you move your Windows Server or SQL Server 2008 or 2008 R2 workloads to Azure you’ll have 3 additional years of free security updates available. There’s no reason to continue to run unsupported on-premise servers any more.
The modern organisation requires a global reach to minimise the cost, and the complexity of operating in the global economy. Azure has presence in more global regions than any other cloud provider and meets local data sovereignty and data residency requirements.
