Dear on-premise server: It’s not you, it’s me.

I need more stability, the ability to grow, and I want more money in my wallet! I’m breaking up with you and moving on…

While some breakups are difficult, some breakups are needed. The computing world is moving on, and if you don’t break up with your on-premise server, it might soon break up with you.

On-premise servers suffer from failing software and hardware, inability to provide services to meet your customer’s demands, and more. Don’t wait for your server to break up with you, move on to Microsoft Azure.

Why Azure?

Microsoft Azure provides an enterprise-grade cloud platform that you can use to get up and running quickly, thus immediately improving your bottom line. Your ability to easily and quickly spin up new projects, move old infrastructure, and be dynamic in your decision making can give you a powerful tool at your disposal.

With Azure Cloud, you gain the ability to react and pivot on demand, and to really be at the leading edge of technology. Don’t be held back by your on-premise server any longer!

Benefits of the Switch

When you switch to Azure, you’ll gain many great benefits. Here are some of our favorites:

1. Pay As You Go

When your business volume fluctuates hourly/daily/weekly/monthly, the pay-as-you-go model is ideal.

Business needs fluctuate by-the-minute at AccuWeather, hence the decision to leverage Azure to deliver weather forecasts worldwide.  By leveraging Azure, AccuWeather’s customers are able to quickly receive weather updates and plan accordingly.

2. Easily Take Your Data With You

In 2012, Callaway Golf decided to migrate many of their consumer and enterprise websites to Azure.  The end result was a better experience for customers and employees, improved scalability and agility, and an annual data center savings of over $300,000.

3. Start with New Projects

Security is topic #1 these days, and one way to improve security is by starting a Single Sign-On (SSO) project with Azure. SSO allows personnel to login to multiple services (ex. email, intranet, Finance system, HR system, etc.) with a single user ID and password.

Azure SSO integrates with over 2,600 services/applications including Salesforce, Box, Concur, DocuSign, Facebook for Work, Office 365, and more. For a complete listing, check out the Active Directory Marketplace.

4. Grow Your Business

If you’re just starting your company or are an early stage company, use Azure with Microsoft’s BizSpark program to grow your business and quickly scale. BizSpark is intended for technology companies that are less than 5 years old, privately held, and have revenues less than $1M annually.
