Microsoft Azure – Highly Scalable Cloud Infrastructure

Does your business require a flexible cloud infrastructure that is highly tailored to your specific needs? Are you looking for services and applications available around the clock that can be scaled separately? The Microsoft Azure cloud platform not only offers more than 200 products and services; in addition to an adaptive IT infrastructure, the digital cloud from Redmond also guarantees high cost-efficiency thanks to a usage-based billing model.

Microsoft and Unic: Would you like to learn more about your opportunities in the cloud environment? While we earned gold competencies for application development and application integration years ago, in 2020, we also added the gold competency for cloud platforms. This is recognition of our expertise in the practical application of Microsoft Azure products, which complements our existing on-site hosting portfolio.

What Is the Microsoft Azure Cloud?

Microsoft Azure is a highly scalable public cloud computing platform providing various Azure services as well as infrastructure worldwide. When using Azure, your company still retains complete data sovereignty at all times. It is entirely up to you whether you store specific information on the platform or locally. And to enable your company to react quickly to any new developments in the future, Microsoft continues to enhance the scope of Azure with new services and updates.

At Unic, we harness Microsoft Azure to set up a flexible cloud IT infrastructure for our customers. Good to know: The solution adapts to your specific requirements and makes your own IT infrastructure obsolete. Numerous standard services such as virtual machines, SQL databases, Kubernetes clusters and many others can be included, extended and combined. Available services include infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and software as a service (SaaS). In general, it is safe to assume that any conceivable operating systems, languages, tools and frameworks will be supported. For example, even Linux has been included in the standard portfolio. And thanks to data centres across the global, the services come with a very high availability while adhering to strict data security regulations (GDPR compliant).

Azure and Data Security

Data security is of utmost importance to European companies. To address this, Microsoft offers various data centres across Europe for cloud applications. This allows you to implement location-specific requirements such as data storage, security and compliance.

  • All data will be encrypted and only stored at the location of the data centre selected by you.
  • Regardless of the location or service, any data will be mirrored and can be synchronised between different data centres upon request. This ensures the continuity of business process as well as recovery 24/7.

Your Resources, Your Cost Savings

By using Microsoft Azure, you will automatically increase flexibility for your internal organisation. Outsource issues such a security, capacity, expertise and technology risks to us and allow your employees to focus on your company’s core business.

An additional benefit is reduced overheads. Operation and maintenance of IT and applications will be obsolete or at least noticeably reduced.
