Overall Satisfaction with Azure Virtual Machines

As an organization with more than 75 sites across a wide geographic area and the requirement to provide high speed access from each site meant that we had to transition away from a hub and spoke design and provide access to resources from each site. By placing the servers and services in the cloud we are able to provide secure access to our resources in a cost-effective manner.
  • Scalability.
  • Cost management.
  • Power/cost ratios.
  • Remote access and secure control.
  • Clear grouping of resources for each virtual resource.
  • Improving remote automation and access.
  • Easy to expand or contract data center as needed.
  • Easy tools for migrating data center to the cloud.
  • Allowed us to move quickly to support remote learning.

Azure Virtual Machines are an excellent resource for organizations needing to provide all the time access to resources with zone and regional resource backups and automatic failover.
The perfect time to look at moving to Azure VMs is about a year before your data center is due for a refresh. Being able to move large capital costs into yearly operational costs while removing the need to maintain your own generators, power supply, fire suppression, backup and data recovery while moving those requirements to Microsoft as part of their service level agreement will help reduce your overall cost of ownership.
