What is Microsoft Azure Managed Services?
Microsoft Azure is a growing collection of integrated cloud services that developers and IT professionals use to build, deploy, and manage applications through a global network of data centres.
With Azure, you get the freedom to build and deploy wherever you want, using the tools, applications, and frameworks of your choice. It also connects cloud and on-premises with consistent hybrid cloud capabilities, and uses open source technologies—to drive maximum portability and value from your existing investments.
When you choose Microsoft Azure, you’re also choosing a public cloud service that has a great amount of flexibility – with additional products that can be added on.
How does it work?
With Phonetek’s Microsoft Azure Managed Service, we can provide recommendations about the cloud service that is right for you, can get you set up in the Microsoft Azure cloud, and can then manage it for you on an ongoing basis.
We start out by designing your Azure requirements and then setup your subscription, if one does not already exist. All Azure usage charges are billed monthly to you by Phonetek at no additional cost to purchasing directly from Microsoft.
Once you are set up, we then provide a range of project services to implement into your environment. You receive direct access to your Azure portal, and we run constant and proactive monitoring on your environment to prevent downtime and minimise risks.
How can it benefit your organisation?
We can add value to your business by providing:
