Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the most common questions we are asked by people visiting our website. If you have any other queries that are not answered please contact us.

Azure is a Cloud computing platform developed by Microsoft for building, deploying and managing applications and services for business to become more agile. Microsoft uses its own platform to develop its own Cloud services such as SharePoint and Office 365.
Azure can benefit your business in many ways. Initially it’s a service that can make you business more agile, but it’s really a platform that could have limitless opportunity for your business – depending on how you utilise it.

You could see immediate benefits by moving your files, databases and applications to Azure. By doing this you’d see collaborative benefits, speed and accessibility benefits and a reduction in cost of ownership of IT. You’d also see benefits in a new found ability to potentially work remotely and increase your staff’s work-life balance.

Business-growth-wise, Azure provides an on-demand scaleable solution which allows your business to be as agile as you need to be.

They are the same thing!

Microsoft renamed Windows Azure to Microsoft Azure in March 2014.

In short – yes!

We support and deploy Microsoft Azure. Many of our customers have seen great benefits in moving to Azure and fully support them throughout their transition.

Unfortunately Microsoft does not disclose the exact location of their data centres. As you can imagine this could be very sensitive information regarding the data that could potentially be stored on them.

Suffice to say that Azure has servers close to you.

According to Microsoft on the following page: Azure regions

Azure users can leverage a global network of data centres to maintain availability in a cost-effective manner. Two data replication options can be enabled during initial sign-up.

With Locally Redundant Storage (LRS), data is stored locally within the users’ primary region. With Geo Redundant Storage (GRS), data is stored in a secondary region 250+ miles from the primary region but within the same geography.

Pricing is based on many factors surrounding service and demand.
