Microsoft Azure – Microsoft Azure, formerly known as Windows Azure, is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform. Azure was originally launched as a PaaS solution but now provides both PaaS and IaaS services.

We have experience building custom application solutions on the Azure platform. By leveraging several features on the Azure platform, we can offer robust enterprise quality applications that are tailored to your business.

 

Virtual network – One solution that we have implemented for our clients is a secure Virtual network to connect to a virtual machine server. It was a database server which had sensitive legal data which needed to be accessed by desktop software. By creating a virtual network and a VPN the client was able to provide the installer and certificates to authorised users. The software could then use the database without the worry of it being available via the general internet.

Cloud economics – Cloud costs can soon add up. It is important to make sure that the resources allocated match the resources required. It is also important to setup email alerts and perhaps a spending cap to ensure that costs do not spiral per month. For example it is easy to scale up a Virtual machine but then not scale it back when perhaps the resources are not longer required. We can set up Azure to ensure you are only using the required resources.
