An infrastructure that can grow with your business
Businesses are continually looking for ways to reduce their capital expenditure and minimise the endless addition or replacement of physical servers, storage and IT infrastructure needed to support business demands.
Azure Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is an instant computing infrastructure, provisioned and managed over the Internet. An Azure infrastructure offers full flexibility and scalability for businesses of any size and sector.
Microsoft and Azure manage the physical infrastructure while you purchase, install, configure and manage your own cloud servers and software – operating systems and applications.
Assess. Understand. Deploy. Support.
The first step is to assess your business’ current infrastructure and the goals you are trying to achieve. This will include a Cloud Readiness Assessment of your existing infrastructure. Based on your business requirements, we can help you plan, deliver and manage a flexible IaaS cloud solution tailored to your needs.
Following the Assessment, discovery and design of the solution, BCN Group can also provide pilot testing prior to implementing your Microsoft Azure infrastructure solution.
BCN Group’s Managed Service can provide first class support and proactive Azure network monitoring of your environment as well as cost optimisation reviews of your Microsoft Azure IaaS solution.
A more secure, stable and ever-ready infrastructure
With an Azure cloud infrastructure, your business will see the instant benefits.
Eliminate capital expense and reduce ongoing cost
IaaS sidesteps the upfront expense of setting up and managing an on-site data centre, making it an economical option for start-ups and businesses testing new ideas.
Improves business continuity and disaster recovery
Achieving high availability, business continuity and disaster recovery is expensive, requiring a significant amount of technology and staff. But with the right service level agreement (SLA) in place, IaaS can reduce this cost, meaning you can access applications and data as usual during a disaster or outage.
As soon as you’ve decided to launch a new product or initiative, the necessary computing infrastructure can be ready in minutes or hours, rather than the days or weeks (and sometimes months) it could take to set up internally.
Respond more quickly to shifting business conditions
IaaS enables you to quickly scale up resources to accommodate spikes in demand for your application – for examples at month end – and scale resources back down when activity decreases. So, you only pay for additional capacity as and when you need it.
Focus on your core business
IaaS frees up your team to focus on your organisation’s core business rather than on IT infrastructure.
Increase stability, reliability and supportability
With IaaS, there’s no need to maintain and upgrade software and hardware or troubleshoot equipment problems.
With the appropriate service agreement, IaaS providers can offer increased security measures for your applications and data that may be better than what you can attain in-house.
Full cloud infrastructure – not for you?
For many businesses a full cloud infrastructure may not be viable but with the flexibility that Azure brings there are options. Azure hybrid cloud allows you to combine cloud and on-premise servers. Working together, users will seamlessly transition between the two.
