With Microsoft Azure, you can start migrating your business to the cloud on your own terms. Azure’s innovation, flexibility, affordability, and security expected from Microsoft, can help you modernize your business. And now that Microsoft SQL Server has reached end of support and Microsoft Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 will reach end of support in January 2020, there’s a natural opportunity to move to Microsoft Azure.
The modern business runs in the cloud. Microsoft Azure provides the perfect balance of security, flexibility, and affordability for small businesses. Here are five ways a small business can benefit from using Microsoft Azure to move to the cloud.
1. Minimize cost
A small business can avoid paying for unnecessary, expensive hardware. As a subscription service, Azure frees you from upfront capital expenses and the resources it takes to manage services locally. Meaning you can focus on what’s most important: running their business.
2. No downtime
A data disaster is a business disaster. Even a minor outage can put you at a competitive disadvantage. With Microsoft Azure, apps work when needed most—without the expense of secondary infrastructure. Don’t run your business without a backup plan.
Sometimes you will need more capacity and other times they need less. Whether it’s seasonal or organic growth, Azure can scale to meet your needs according to demand. Purchase in advance to get them the best-fixed rates.
4. Cloud options
Moving to the cloud doesn’t need be an all-or-nothing decision. With Microsoft Azure, you can move some or all your business applications on your own timeline. From accounting and HR to commerce and CRM, there’s a place for everything in Azure.
5. Unprecedented protection
Safeguard your business with unmatched security management and threat protection for all applications and data, whether they’re on-premises or in the cloud. Plus, Azure has more security and certifications than any other cloud provider.
