Begin Your Cloud Migration Journey with Ease

Today, 87 percent of organizations are planning to integrate on-premise data centers with public cloud services.

Without a strong plan, risks can involve a complex, time-consuming migration process. The lack of relevant in-house skills and the loss of control can quickly result in bandwidth issues and unexpected costs.

Choosing to migrate your entire data center to the cloud might seem like an overwhelming and complicated process. Many small businesses balk at this daunting prospect – even with the many benefits attached.

That’s where IT Support Guys steps in. We break down Azure migrations to successfully transition your data to the cloud without any pain and little to no downtime.

Hybrid Cloud Evolved

Most organizations already have at least one on-premise server. Microsoft enables organizations to seamlessly integrate existing on-premise resources with Azure’s public cloud to create the ideal hybrid cloud ecosystem for greater cost control and maximum performance.

With Office 365 and Azure AD federation, users can authenticate using their on-premise passwords and via secure tokenization, can access cloud services they need from a single sign-on. Not only does this save time and remove the hassle of worrying about remembering multiple passwords but it also eliminates the risk of external threats gaining access to critical accounts.

You shouldn’t have to choose between your current data storage solutions and the cloud. We’ll use Azure’s advanced cloud migration tools to quickly integrate your existing IT environment, making the transition painless, affordable, and beneficial for all employees and workstations.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve answered some of the most common questions below. If you still have a question, give us a quick call.

Migrating to Azure enables businesses of all sizes to access secure, reliable, and powerful Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions. Azure provides a cost-effective solution for businesses to leverage hybrid cloud environments, integrating on-premise and cloud public cloud for greater cost-savings.

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s integrated cloud-based identity and access management solution that enables employees to sign in and access thousands of SaaS applications, such as Office 365, Salesforce, and Sage using a single sign-on (SSO). Single sign-on with Azure AD allows users to access internal resources, app, and cloud apps developed by your own business. Take the frustration of managing separate passwords for every service and increase security with Azure AD’s single sign-on capabilities.

Microsoft Azure is the cost-effective solution to start your cloud journey; here are the facts: with Azure you only pay for what you need, as you need it. Businesses never have to worry about the cost of energy, space, cooling, unexpected disasters, server failures or replacing outdated hardware.

While the cost is variable, based on the types of service, level of performance, and storage requirements. Azure is 5 times less than AWS for Windows Server and SQL Server. Microsoft offers discounts when businesses move existing Windows Server, and SQL Server licenses to Azure.

Better yet, now that Windows Server and SQL Server 2008 have reached their end of life, Microsoft is offering three years of free extended security updates when workloads are moved to the cloud.

Microsoft employs more than 3,500 cybersecurity experts and spends more than a billion dollars each year on security to ensure businesses have the cloud industry’s more secure foundation. Azure offers more than 90 compliance certifications including HIPAA/HITECH, DFARS, NIST CSF, PCI DSS and more – no other Cloud Service Provider in the world has more compliance certificates than Azure.
