Azure optimisation from an Azure Expert MSP

Helping you leverage the most value from your Azure environment 

Your Azure environment doesn’t sit still. That’s the nature of the cloud. It’s never the wrong time to check for opportunities to reduce spending, increase security and boost technical performance. 

Optimising Azure for cost, security, and performance 

We will carry out an Azure optimisation assessment to identify how your environment can be optimised for cost, performance, and security. 

You’ll be presented a business and technical level overview of the outcomes with recommended next steps. We can then implement the recommendations to ensure your environment performs as you’d always planned and be the foundation for further innovation.

"Cloud Direct has been great. They sat down with us, asked what we were trying to achieve, then worked with us from planning through to implementation. I really value the personal level of service.
