The cloud has already transformed the way leading Australian organisations are doing business. With the new local Australian Microsoft Azure data centres network latency to the cloud is significantly reduced. Now you can experience on-premise like application performance in the cloud, with-out the headaches of running IT. At the most basic level, the public cloud is about instantly extending your IT infrastructure. And it can offer small and midsize organisations a lot of great benefits
You want to focus on running your business, not your infrastructure and the bottom line. With Azure, you can build, deploy, and manage applications in the cloud without worrying about the cost of purchasing new server hardware. You can easily scale up or down as needed and gain peace of mind knowing you have the added protection of multiple data backups in Microsoft-managed datacentres.
Many businesses lose critical data because they don’t have a data backup solution. Azure offers simple, reliable backup for your data and applications that’s affordable because you pay only for the storage you use. There are no typical infrastructure costs or per-server or data transfer fees. Plus your applications receive the same level of protection that Microsoft enterprise customers, including many of the world’s largest financial institutions, receive.
Any business can host its own website, but is the risk of poor performance, security breaches, and skyrocketing costs worth the price? With Azure, you can quickly and easily host scalable websites in the cloud. Microsoft uses multiple datacenters around the world, helping provide you and your customers with a reliable, satisfying, and secure experience that enables you to deploy your applications close to your customers.
With two datacentres in Australia your move to the cloud can now be smoother and faster with Microsoft Azure. But how can you start this voyage?
