WHAT IS MICROSOFT AZURE?
Azure is the name given to Microsoft’s range of integrated cloud computing solutions.
Organisations have traditionally run their IT systems from their own hardware, located at their premises. But there are downsides to this approach: infrastructure is difficult to maintain, costly to upgrade, and can prove inflexible when it comes to system access.
With Azure, organisations can run their IT services from Microsoft’s cloud infrastructure, powered by a global network of industry-leading data centres. There’s minimal change to how end-users operate, but significant benefits in terms of flexibility and performance.
By utilising our Microsoft Azure migration services, organisations can save on the cost of owning and maintaining in-house hardware. And secondly, as a Microsoft solution, Azure guarantees the highest levels of service reliability and industry-leading security as standard. Thirdly, a key benefit of Azure is its instantly-scalable infrastructure, and robust backup solutions.
Azure is therefore perfectly placed to help SME and mid-market organisations achieve flexibility and high-performance from their IT systems, without it costing the earth.

With the breadth of Microsoft Azure solutions and the complexity of their setup, it is easy for organisations to go wrong, and when they do, it can prove costly.
Akita’s infrastructure consultants can support organisations getting started with Azure services, helping them to choose and configure the right solutions for their requirements.
For those already established with Azure, we can advise how to optimise their cloud infrastructure for performance and budget, as well as recommend an ongoing development path with Azure services to meet organisational goals.

Microsoft Azure Services FAQs
How Is Microsoft Azure Priced?
Azure is priced based on the service you require and the functionality that you wish it to fulfil. This is then delivered as a measured service, with prices increasing/decreasing depending on the variables you select (eg. the amount of data you host, the number of virtual CPUs you require etc.). You can discover more about pricing on Microsoft's website.More
Can You Provide Microsoft Azure Licensing?
Yes, we can provide all types of Microsoft licensing at the same rate as buying directly from Microsoft.
Can You Manage An Existing Azure Setup?
Yes. We'll typically dedicate an onboarding session to understanding how you're currently using Azure and whether you're using the service has been optimised (which is often not the case). We'll then take over the management of your service.
Is Microsoft Azure GDPR Compliant?
It can be. We can configure Azure so that data is only held within the UK and ensure that it's not replicated (as part of the backup process) to other Microsoft data centres globally.
Can You Support Azure For Our Global Operations?
Yes, we can manage Azure tenants regardless of the global Microsoft data centre that they're hosted in.
Is Microsoft Azure Cost-Effective?
Microsoft Azure can support very complex cloud operations. Depending on what you are trying to achieve, it can be very cost-effective. However, it's easy to make costly mistakes with Azure. So if you're not confident with Azure, or don't have the time to effectively manage your environment, it's generally more cost-effective to work with a partner. Akita's experts can also advise if an alternative cloud solution may be more efficient for you.

Azure Active Directory (AD)
Active Directory (AD) Microsoft’s cloud-based identity management solution. AD delivers the ability to secure and control identity and access management (IAM) across Microsoft 365 tenants. As such its perhaps the most common Azure requirement that Akita handles.
Working with organisations of all sizes, we can configure Azure AD to deliver effective security and authentication measures across any Microsoft cloud based apps that your users access. From single sign on (SSO) functionality for speed of access working across multiple app to MFA protection for security when working flexible, our work with Azure AD gets organisations working more efficiently.
We then offer ongoing Azure AD management through our IT support service.
