Managed Azure Services Resources


  • What is a Managed Azure Service?

    An Azure Managed Service is a comprehensive solution provided by Microsoft or a Microsoft partner which provides support for your Azure environment.
    It covers a wide array of services including infrastructure management, database management, security management, and more.
    Azure Managed Services will streamline and optimise the use of Azure resources. This will allow you to focus on your core competencies rather than cloud management.

  • What are the benefits of a Managed Azure Service?

    Azure Managed Services offer several benefits such as enhanced security, cost management, 24/7 support, and access to expert knowledge. They allow businesses to focus on their core competencies while offloading the complexities of Azure management to experts.

  • How do you choose a Managed Azure Service Provider?

    Choosing a Managed Azure Service Provider involves several key considerations. First, assess their expertise and certifications in Microsoft Azure services. Second, ensure they offer the services your business needs, from security management to cost optimisation. Check their track record, including how long they've been providing Azure services, and their client references. Also, evaluate their scalability to grow with your business, their commitment to security and compliance, their customer support quality, and their pricing structure. The right provider should align with your business needs and goals.

  • How does a Managed Azure Service ensure the security of my data?

    As a Managed Azure Service Provider, we will ensure the security of your data by implementing robust security measures and adhering to best practices. This includes setting up firewalls, encryption, and intrusion detection systems, as well as continuous monitoring for potential threats. They also ensure compliance with industry-specific regulations and standards. Azure itself has built-in security features like Azure Security Centre and Azure Active Directory for identity protection. Regular audits and vulnerability assessments are conducted to identify and rectify potential security gaps. Providers also offer disaster recovery and backup services to safeguard your data in case of any unforeseen incidents.

  • What types of workloads can I migrate to Azure?

    You can migrate a broad range of workloads to Azure, thanks to its extensive array of services and capabilities.
    This includes, but is not limited to, web applications, databases, virtual machines, big data analytics, mobile applications, DevOps, AI and machine learning workloads.
    Azure is a flexible choice for migration that supports various operating systems, languages, tools, and frameworks. 
    Azure provides the necessary tools and services to smoothly move both simple applications and complex multi-tire workloads.
