A Cloud Solution That Optimizes Your Business

In business, “it’s not working” doesn’t cut it any more. We’ve all been there – some software isn’t loading properly, some connection isn’t working, some server isn’t functioning. There’s a crash, which is bad enough. But the possibility of lost business as a result is even worse.

Increasingly, companies are circumventing many such problems by accessing the flexibility of the Cloud, and now there’s research showing that if you want to drive up revenue, the answer is to look up.

WANT MORE REVENUE? THE CLOUD TAKES YOU UP WHERE YOU BELONG

A 2013 study conducted by Rackspace along with the Manchester Business School surveyed 1,300 companies in the US and the UK, including qualitative phone interviews to reach the following findings:

  • 88% of cloud users experienced cost savings
  • 56% agreed that moving to the cloud helped them boost revenue
  • 60% said cloud computing has reduced their need for IT to maintain infrastructure
  • 62% of the companies took their savings and reinvested back into the company

Only a few years ago, the Cloud was an ethereal concept. But thanks to wireless access from homes to subways, airplanes, to business – we’re all using and getting used to the Cloud more than ever.

WHAT IS MICROSOFT AZURE CLOUD?

Cloud-based technology allows your operation to be a truly moving enterprise. There’s no need to be in the office, or even physically plugged into a network. Wireless and WiFi makes your entire system accessible, and cloud storage – Microsoft Azure Cloud – is the fully secured system where it all comes together.

Security, Reliability, Accessibility

Your data is your business. Nearly 60% of Fortune 500 companies now rely on Azure. With datacenters across 19 regions, Azure has made its mark, becoming the first major cloud provider in compliance with the European Union’s stringent privacy laws.

MICROSOFT AZURE CLOUD RISES TO ALL CHALLENGES

Azure Cloud never lets you down. There’s no limit to server space, which means the system can ride any spike in use for as long as need be. It can also scale down when the usage drops. You pay for what you use. No need make any adjustments – the system responds to your business needs on demand.

Best of all, your users won’t notice a thing. Like an elastic, the cloud expands and contracts in unison with your use. Simply set up the system and you’re ready to go.
