Businesses can’t ask where they want to be in 5 years without considering where they want their technology to be as well. The way we handle our IT solutions has a direct impact on how we handle business, growth, and disaster. So how do we build solutions now that will work later? By building solutions that can evolve over time!
The need to build forward-thinking solutions with existing hardware is why understanding Azure is key to your next step.
In our blog last week, we talked about The Benefits of Using Microsoft Azure, discussing why Azure is one of our cloud solutions of choice, and the merits of its security, support and cost. In this post, we’re getting a little more technical and talking about IaaS and PaaS, the two basic services Cloud Providers offer its users.
Azure is Microsoft's cloud platform. Users can buy service for storage, hosting, or running applications on-demand from its global network of data centers which houses servers, storage, and software. It supports some of the largest number of operating systems, devices, database languages, and tools. Azure’s primary options are IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and PaaS (Platform as a Service).
Depending on your business, one of the above may be more appealing than the other. Learning about both should help you see how your current solutions can benefit from Azure’s features.
Even for those of us with infrastructure in place, there are excellent options to leverage our on-site assets, benefit from off-site infrastructure and still be thinking 5 years ahead.
Azure provides an efficient, secure, flexible, and cost-effective method for data storage and IT infrastructure.
In this post, we will walk through a 5 step methodology we have found helpful to moving mainframe applications to Azure.
Mainframe modernization offers opportunities to clear roadblocks and re-engineer legacy processes, allowing organizations to keep up with the demands of the digital economy.
Will mainframe systems begin to show up as significant business risks on auditors’ reports? If they haven’t been modernized, yes. In fact, it’s already happening.
