Microsoft Azure, a cloud hosting solution, allows organizations to deploy infrastructure and applications in a cost-effective, pay-on-use manner. The flexibility of Microsoft Azure gives you the power to spin up virtual machines quickly to deploy applications and services and move data to managed servers. All you need to consider is your application code and data.
As a Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform Partner, we have worked with clients to design and implement custom Azure-based solutions spanning the robust features that Windows Azure offers. Whether your solution is in the design phase, has already been deployed, needs to be fully in the cloud, or integrated with services and data in your data center, we can help design and implement a solution to meet your needs.
Our goal is to ensure that our clients have a great cloud experience. If you are looking to deploy Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for hosting core services like email, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) for getting servers out of your datacenter, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for deploying applications, implementing a private cloud using Hyper-V, or all of the above, we can help.
Our Microsoft cloud implementation and migration services include:
Azure Migration and Data Center Transformation
Migrating your IT infrastructure to the cloud offers many advantages including greater operational efficiency, cost optimization, agility, and scalability. Fast Lane / Directions helps you achieve these benefits by designing the right cloud strategy focused on your business requirements and goals. By identifying, prioritizing, and adapting your workloads, creating a strategic migration plan, designing supporting infrastructure, and modifying operating processes, we can help you effectively manage the capacity and availability of your assets to ensure business continuity.
Migrating to Office 365
Office 365 provides cloud versions of Microsoft's communications and collaboration software, Exchange, Skype for Business and SharePoint. Migrating to Office 365 offers your organization many advantages in terms of productivity, collaboration, mobility and communication, but every organization is different and such an initiative also involves transformation challenges. Unlike most IT evolutions, the technical aspect of this migration is not the only challenge – it’s the revolution it sparks within a company in how you communicate and work together.
Automation and DevOps
Today’s modern organizations need to deliver products and services to customers more efficiently than ever. Investing in DevOps automation practices allows you to rethink your application delivery methods.
Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT) are generating more data than ever before. Structuring this data and applying advanced analysis enables you to make faster, better decisions and generate additional value for your organization.
Cloud Development and Application Modernization
Taking full advantage of the Cloud allows organizations to further invest in software improvement and innovation and spend less time and resources on maintenance.
