Microsoft Azure

An efficient and secure cloud platform with a wide range of services.

Free Azure Readiness Assessment

Microsoft Azure is the hyperscale public cloud platform of Microsoft. It includes a wide range of cloud services, both in terms of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and as a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Azure offers a platform and services that enables you to put together any desired solution.

What can we offer you?

Arxus chooses an Azure-first approach. This means that we always consider first whether a proper solution is possible on the Microsoft Azure platform. We do this because we believe that the public cloud is the future and Microsoft Azure has the main trump cards. In addition to the potential of the platform itself, we still have some more important added value to offer.

Why Microsoft Azure?

Because Microsoft Azure provides an incredibly efficient and secure cloud platform and brings a great deal of benefits. Microsoft is also fully committed to Azure. New components and services are being launched for the cloud platform at a tremendous pace.

That has resulted in Microsoft's cloud segment generating more quarterly revenue in 2019 than the Office and Windows segments for the first time in more than three years.

But maybe even more importantly: Microsoft is currently the most chosen cloud provider and continues to gain market share over major competitors such as Amazon (AWS) and Google (Google Cloud).

Is your business ready for Microsoft Azure?

After an intake meeting, one of our cloud architects will visit you for a half-day workshop. The intention is to work with you to review your specific business case and see what Microsoft Azure can do for you. This gives you a clear view of your Azure Readiness and any subsequent steps you can take.

Microsoft Azure strengths

IaaS & PaaS

Azure offers a complete range of Infrastructure-as a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a Service (PaaS) capabilities. With IaaS, you can run your entire infrastructure on Azure and only pay for what you use. PaaS services allow you to create your own cloud apps easily and quickly without having to manage the underlying layers.

Icon - Cloud Solutions

Hybrid-friendly

Azure also has capabilities to design hybrid clouds that are unique. Azure Arc provides you with a reliable tool to manage your entire environment (on the premises, in other clouds and the public Azure cloud). Azure also offers a wider range of hybrid connections, such as virtual private networks (VPNs), caches, content delivery networks (CDNs) and ExpressRoute connections.

Icon - Cloud Migration

Flexibility

Microsoft Azure is a very efficient platform and offers a great deal of flexibility and scalability. Applications, infrastructure, storage, etc. can be scaled easily, quickly and in a user-friendly way from 10 to 10 million users. The platform ensures that you always have a customised solution.

Icon - Flexibility

Operational reliability

Microsoft Azure is hosted in Microsoft data centres. They are spread over various regions. There are always two or more data centres for each region. This guarantees you maximum availability of your applications and data. At the same time, you have a solution for business continuity and disaster recovery.

Icon - Cloud Backup

Cloud Security

Azure is designed based on the Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) process. This means that attention is paid to security from the drawing board for each service or component and that this security is implemented at the core of the application. Microsoft therefore guarantees the best in terms of security for all operations and data within the Azure Cloud.

Icon - Cloud Security

Data Privacy

Microsoft Azure was also the first cloud platform to embrace the international ISO 27018 standard for cloud privacy. In addition, Microsoft does not move any data outside the chosen region. As a customer, you can determine very specifically where – in which region – Microsoft should store any type of data. So you are also safe in terms of GDPR.

Icon - Cloud Security

Intelligence

Azure offers you built-in support to delve deeper into the data and to discover important insights for improving business processes and decision-making. Among other things, Azure offers possibilities for Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS), machine learning, bots and cognitive APIs.

Icon - Artificial Intelligence

Innovation

Microsoft invests heavily in Microsoft Azure. Not only in keeping the platform performing, but primarily in constant innovation and improvement. The amount of new services and components and the pace at which they are launched is noticeably higher than with the competition.

Icon - Innovation

Transparency

Microsoft has a 'pay per use' approach for Azure. Specifically, this means that only your real consumption is charged per minute. If, for example, you choose to reduce your number of servers halfway through a month, then at the end of that month you also effectively pay a lower price.

Icon - Finance

Learning curve

Microsoft uses familiar tools, such as Visual Studio, ASP.NET and familiar programming languages to develop cloud-native applications. That makes it easier for developers to develop cloud-based applications rapidly.

Icon - Training

The Microsoft Azure ecosystem

Microsoft Azure also immediately gives you a perfectly integrated environment with many other commonly used Microsoft applications, such as Office 365 and SharePoint. But it goes far beyond that: there is now a huge ecosystem of companies that supply specific facilities and services on top of the Microsoft Azure platform.
