It is not always possible to migrate all the servers of a company to the cloud, and not have any services managed locally. Also, the bigger the company, the more sense it takes to execute hybrid environment projects.
The great advantage that Azure has over other clouds (read AWS, for example) is that the company’s local system is practically the same as the Cloud, based on Windows Server. In this way, connecting the two worlds and being able to move workloads between environments is a matter of clicks.
But in order to get to that point you have to know the two worlds, on-premise and Cloud, and know how they can interact with each other. Our experience of more than 30 years in local environments, and the specialization of the Azure environment in the last five years, allow us to execute any hybrid environment project with Azure.
But Azure is not limited to Windows Server environments only. 1 in 3 servers in Azure is not a Windows Server. The same goes for database services such as SQL, MySQL, HANA, among others. Just like in development environments where .Net is one of the accepted ones.
What is Azure?
Azure is Microsoft’s pay-as-you-go infrastructure platform that enables any company, regardless of size, to have systems tailored to their needs every minute.
IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) services such as virtual machines, unlimited and redundant storage or network management. PaaS (Platform as a Service) services such as SQL Server, and many more services or applications that grow day after day, offer an increasingly important range of possibilities.
HSI has made a strong commitment to this platform and has created an exclusive internal department specialized in this environment in order to help its clients to successfully carry out their projects and benefit from all its advantages.
