Azure is Microsoft’s cloud platform, a growing collection of integrated services (compute, store, data, networking and app) that move your business forward and save money.
It’s IaaS + PaaS
Azure is the only major cloud platform ranked by Gartner as an industry leader for both infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS). This powerful combination of managed and unmanaged services lets you build, deploy, and manage applications any way you like for unmatched productivity.
- AKA’s AX and GP Azure hosted solutions leverage IaaS, building out an Azure hosted infrastructure to support your ERP needs with relation to AX and GP
It’s hybrid ready
Azure’s enterprise-proven hybrid cloud solutions give you the best of both worlds, expanding your IT options without added complexity. With Azure, data storage, backup, and recovery become more efficient and economical. It’s also easier to build applications that span both on-premises and the cloud.
- AKA’s standard AX and GP solutions are fully hosted in Azure but with our expertise we can assist you in extending our Azure solutions into your own already existed environments, offering a true hybrid solution.
It’s always up, always on
Azure uses the same enterprise-tested platform that powers Skype, Office 365, Bing, and Xbox. Azure offers a 99.95% availability SLA, 24×7 tech support, and round-the-clock service health monitoring.
- AKA’s standard AX and GP solutions take advantage of the already standard high-availability features of Azure but we can extend that to offer DR solutions, spanning Azure data centers across the country (or even the globe!)
It’s economical and scalable
Azure can quickly scale up or down to match demand, so you only pay for what you use. Per-minute billing and a commitment to match competitor prices for popular infrastructure services like compute, storage and bandwidth means you’re always getting unbeatable price for performance.
- AKA can work with your organization on scaling up storage, resource and server requirements as your organization grows. You no longer have to wait days or even weeks for servers to be shipped and then physically setup. With Azure, allocating more resources is a few mouse-clicks away!
Azure runs on a growing global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters across 13 regions, giving you a wide range of options for running applications and ensuring your customers always get great performance. Azure is the first multinational cloud provider in mainland China and is continuing to expand to new regions around the globe.
