Microsoft Azure Cloud
The classic business applications such as CRM or ERP combined with modern business intelligence functionalities and Office 365 integration.
Cloud computing eliminates the capital expense of buying hardware and software and setting up and running on-site datacenters—the racks of servers, the round-the-clock electricity for power and cooling, and the IT experts for managing the infrastructure. It adds up fast.
Most cloud computing services are provided self service and on demand, so even vast amounts of computing resources can be provisioned in minutes, typically with just a few mouse clicks, giving businesses a lot of flexibility and taking the pressure off capacity planning.
The benefits of cloud computing services include the ability to scale elastically. In cloud speak, that means delivering the right amount of IT resources—for example, more or less computing power, storage, bandwidth—right when they’re needed, and from the right geographic location.
On-site datacenters typically require a lot of “racking and stacking”—hardware setup, software patching, and other time-consuming IT management chores. Cloud computing removes the need for many of these tasks, so IT teams can spend time on achieving more important business goals.
The biggest cloud computing services run on a worldwide network of secure datacenters, which are regularly upgraded to the latest generation of fast and efficient computing hardware. This offers several benefits over a single corporate datacenter, including reduced network latency for applications and greater economies of scale.
Many cloud providers offer a broad set of policies, technologies, and controls that strengthen your security posture overall, helping protect your data, apps, and infrastructure from potential threats.
The Hybrid Cloud enables you as a customer to decide which applications and data you want to have locally and which in the cloud.
Contrary to other cloud providers, with Microsoft you don't have to decide whether your data is in the cloud or on-premise. Simply use both. Through integration with Windows, you can choose where your data is located and simply connect it. If desired, it can be perfectly integrated into Microsoft's server operating systems.
Microsoft offers a full range of integrated cloud offerings, from Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) to all of its Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings. For example, PaaS development can be easily integrated with a VM on Azure IaaS and easily integrated with app services such as Sharepoint and CRM Online.
Microsoft has a leading position in a broader range of integrated technologies (AI, Big Data, IoT, Blockchain, Modern Workplace Technologies, Cloud Computing) that are central to digital transformation projects.
Microsoft offers you multilevel contractual assurances to protect your data - with a significantly higher level of compliance and security than other cloud solutions on the market. As a customer, you retain full control over the collection, use, and distribution of your business data.
Microsoft gives you complete visibility into the policies, operational practices, and technologies that ensure data protection in Microsoft's online services. This also helps you to implement the new EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (GDPR):
With more global regions than any other cloud provider, Azure has the reach to bring your applications and users closer together worldwide. Azure secures data residency and provides customers with comprehensive compliance and resilience options. Microsoft Azue is available in 140 countries.
Microsoft plans to offer cloud services to businesses, government agencies and NGOs from data centers in the cantons of Zurich and Geneva. This enables Microsoft to guarantee data storage in Switzerland and supports Swiss companies and institutions, including the financial services industry, in advancing digital transformation. The Microsoft cloud - consisting of Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365 - is expected to be available from Swiss data centers from 2019.
Germany as a new Microsoft data center region: With the German cloud, customers can now also store their data in the new data centers in Frankfurt and Magdeburg. For reasons of reliability, these are located in different parts of Germany and are connected to each other via a data network that is separate from the public Internet. To ensure reliability, data is continuously synchronized between the data centers. The expansion of the Microsoft data center region in Germany is available to all EU and EFTA customers.
