The key benefits of Microsoft Azure_
Microsoft Azure Backup_
The Azure-based service for back-up, protection and restoration of data that resides in the Microsoft Cloud. Azure Backup replaces any existing on-premises or off-site backup solution with a cloud-based solution that has a high amount of availability and offers two types of backup replication: locally redundant storage and geo-redundant storage.
Azure’s backup services offer multiple components that are downloaded and deployed via computer, server and in the Cloud. And the component chosen is dependent upon what you want to protect. All Azure Backup components (no matter whether you’re protecting data on-premises or in the Cloud) can be used to back up data to a Backup vault in Azure.Speak to us about Azure

Operational Security Assurance (OSA) builds on SDL knowledge and processes to provide a framework that helps ensure secure operations throughout the lifecycle of Cloud-based services.
Microsoft Azure has more than 20 Cloud Computing related security certificates and is the first Cloud based service provider to adopt the new international standard of ISO 27018.Speak to us about Azure

Microsoft Azure FAQs
What is Microsoft Azure?
Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform. It provides a wide range of computing resources and services that businesses can use to build, deploy and manage applications and services across Microsoft’s global network of datacentres.
How does Microsoft Azure work?
Microsoft’s datacentres contain physical hardware, such as servers, storage and networking equipment. Each datacentre is connected to Microsoft’s core global network that offers high speed connectivity between them. Through the Azure web portal users can create resources like servers, databases and applications, all of which can offer scalability, load balancing and high security.
What is Microsoft Azure used for?
Azure provides a flexible and scalable cloud computing environment where users can build, deploy, and manage their applications and services without the need to invest in and maintain their own physical infrastructure.
How much does Microsoft Azure cost?
Azure services are billed by service, quantity, scale, location and usage patterns. Costs can therefore vary quite significantly, based upon requirements. Microsoft offers a pay-as-you-go model which means you only pay for the resources you have actually used, making a highly cost-effective option for a wide variety of services.
How long does it take to get Microsoft Azure certification?
To be certified as a Microsoft partner across the 3 Azure solution designations (Infrastructure, Data & AI and Digital & App Innovation) requires a large number of highly skilled staff that hold a broad range of technical certifications, earned through study, experience and exams. Partners that have this proven expertise are able to demonstrate to their clients they are able to delivery on their requirements.
