Extend your data centre into the cloud with Azure. Managed cloud computing from Cloud Direct opens up new ways of working and helps you move faster.

You need IT that is fast and flexible enough for today’s workloads and tomorrow’s demands. Seasonal spikes, unpredictable growth and the pace of business make it very difficult for businesses to plan long-term IT investments. Microsoft’s Azure can move as fast as you do. It is a truly scalable and affordable cloud computing platform, available on demand, that will help you seize new business opportunities when they happen.

Azure offers both Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) capabilities which means that it can handle many of your essential workloads, like backup, disaster recovery and application hosting. Built-in security and integrated tools make applications available faster and ensure their availability, wherever you need them.

Azure is powerful platform for developers as it brings together computing, networking, analytics, storage, database, web, Internet of Things and mobile services that make it easier to build apps. It’s also an open platform that supports a wide range of operating systems, languages and devices so you can use it with the skills and technologies you already have, include Linux. This makes it ideal for a hybrid solution as you can make the most of your existing IT by adding cloud services.

Cloud Direct is a Microsoft Gold partner and can help you tailor Azure’s collection of integrated cloud services, including Azure Site Recovery and Azure Backup for your business. Azure gives you secure, new, multiple ways of working and we can guide you through the options for your business. We’ll help you realise its potential with bespoke architecture, seamless delivery and ongoing support.

Azure brings enterprise capabilities to businesses

Azure brings enterprise capabilities to businesses

Azure works for every size of organisation, even start-ups. It offers an inexpensive and easy way to access the kind of big data analytics, computing power and storage that was previously only available to enterprise organisations. With Cloud Direct and Microsoft’s expertise, businesses can compete with larger organisations using the same technology without the same enterprise costs

Azure for security, privacy and compliance

Azure for security, privacy and compliance

A robust set of security standards and processes are embedded into every stage of Azure’s development. Encrypted communications as well as threat management and mitigation practices help to keep data secure and available. Azure also features transparent privacy policies and meets national, international and industry-specific standards for compliance, such as ISO 27001 and ISO/IEC 27018 for cloud privacy

Manage your business, not your IT infrastructure
