Microsoft Azure

Smart, secure & lean in the cloud

Microsoft Azure is a hybrid cloud application.

No matter what your business, or where you are. The cloud is a great move.

Why switch to Microsoft Azure?

Be more agile
Grow faster

A platform that allows you to scale your business as you need to. Host all of your business data and systems securely in the cloud.

Best of all you can innovate and experiment with new features to help streamline your business without any upfront investment or setting up complex infrastructure.

Why choose Microsoft Azure?

Azure cannot be matched for speed of deployment, operation and scalability.

Pay less

Reduce costs for building, expanding and managing your IT. Only pay only for the computer processing time and storage that you need.

Big data insights

Uncover business insights through advanced analytics for both traditional and new data sources. Detect anomalies, predict behaviours and recommend actions for your business.

WHAT’S IN OUR AZURE PACKS

CLOUD
ASSESSMENT

Our Cloud Assessment pack gets a clear picture of what your current infrastructure is doing and what it would cost to run in Azure, as well as presenting other options such as refactoring as a comparison against lift and shift.

This will provide a clear understanding of how to move your apps, data and infrastructure to Azure using a proven cloud migration approach.

We’ll use Microsoft’s assessment tool kit as well as our own Azure genius skills and knowledge to document and report on what you’re current infrastructure is doing. What resources it’s using, and what resources it would need.

We’ll pull it all together in a report that’s simple to understand and can help show you not only what Azure could cost you, but explain the other ways it can help in terms of resilience, DR and performance.

• Assessment of current infrastructure

• Review of dependencies of above / LOB applications

• Report on utilisation and predicted costs

• Draft project plan / scene setting for lift & shift VS refactor

PRICE: Up to £950

LINE OF BUSINESS
PILOT

Our Line of Business Pilot is a scoped pilot to confirm and demonstrate that your LOB application can be migrated to Azure. To an environment that allows you to test it’s performance, confirm it’s costs and usage that can become the first step to a full migration.

We’ll setup your Azure environment and replicate your LOB application into Azure to demonstrate that it can work just as effectively as it does in it’s current home, if not better.

• Setup of Azure environment

• Setup of ASR to replicate ‘single’ LOB infrastructure

• Management of first replication & subsequent sync

• One spin up to confirm viability / usability

PRICE: From £2,850

INFRASTRUCTURE
AS A SERVICE

Allows modernisation of infrastructure, reducing risk and CAPEX spend, whilst allowing existing software to continue to run without costly redeployment / upgrade.

Use Microsoft Azure to access and run on hardware that wouldn’t be cost effective to mirror on premise. Use the massively global scale and reach to deploy and utilise the services you need on a PAYG model or fixed price.

• Setup & provision of Azure subscription

• Setup of ASR & Azure networking to duplicate environment OR provision of new infrastructure

• Management of replication

• Setup of environment backend (with default 30 day backup)

• Cut over of environment (application migration requires 3rd party support services)

PRICE: Up to £1,900 – £9,500

WINDOWS
VIRTUAL DESKTOP

The Windows Virtual Desktop package allows you to use Azure to deliver a Windows 10 desktop experience to your users wherever they are.

Access to all their apps and data in a single, centralised desktop allowing them to access their data securely and efficiently. Using the power of Azure to run at scale and highly available.

From a few remote users to the entire business, WVD can be an integral part of allowing your business to continue to access that LOB application from any location, whilst maintaining the highest possible security and access. All within a familiar W10 environment.

BACKUP & DISASTER
RECOVERY

From simple to complex backup solutions, use Microsoft Azure to be the backbone of your DR strategy.

From simple PAYG storage for backing up a copy of those important file shares or LOB application. To whole server imaging with standby server recovery in the cloud for the ultimate BCDR solution.

• 2 servers including 500GB (£120 per month)

• 5 servers including 1TB (£200 per month)
