Azure Cloud Infrastructure as a Service
Never wait for servers or infrastructure again!
Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) is instant computing infrastructure, provisioned and managed over the Internet. Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure delivers secure, on-demand and scalable compute infrastructure. Most importantly, it delivers at the pace your business requires regardless of your business size.
“Transform your business and reduce maintenance costs with an energy-efficient infrastructure spanning more than 100 highly secure facilities worldwide, linked by one of the largest networks on earth.” – Microsoft
Scale on demand, and only pay for what you use
With cloud infrastructure, you can create new servers and virtual machines in minutes. Together with Azure’s per-minute billing and built-in auto-scaling, you benefit from only having to pay for the services and infrastructure you use. Furthermore, you can scale resources up and/or down based on actual usage and as your needs change.
Backup, storage, and recovery
Azure cloud infrastructure provides scalable, durable cloud storage, backup, and recovery solutions for any data, big and small. Additionally, it works with the infrastructure you already have. Therefore, giving you cost-effective options to enhance your existing IT systems and business continuity strategy.
Cloud has many storage options to store all types of data required by your applications and business. This data includes unstructured text or binary data such as video, audio and images. Furthermore, it can provide considerable cost savings and the ability to access data from anywhere with an internet connection.
Microsoft has state-of-the-art data centres around the world, including three in Australia. Therefore, your data will be more secure in facilities that are protected by industry-leading physical security and compliant with a comprehensive portfolio of standards and regulations.
Azure disaster recovery solutions provide data backup and high availability to protect all your major IT systems. Protect Azure cloud infrastructure and workloads in one Azure region and have it replicated to a different Azure region within a geographical cluster, without the high cost of duplicating on-premise hardware.
It’s up to you what applications will run on the servers. Azure cloud allows you to use the tools you love and skills you already have and run virtually any application, using your data source, with your operating system, on your device.
You can manage the servers yourself or outsource to Satalyst. Satalyst can provide the Azure cloud infrastructure and services to you via a subscription and also undertake regular maintenance of the cloud operating system depending on your needs and budget.
