Move your data to the cloud with Azure
How can the cloud help me?
Data Capacity: By 2020, the amount of high-value data will double.
Cost: Public cloud is growing 6x the rate of IT spending through 2020. Moving to the cloud reduces costs.
Compliance: Industry standards must be met for data compliance.
Data and infrastructure availability: Customers need to ensure availability and infrastructure reliability.
Secure data: Customers need constant secure technology; 76% of enterprises are restricting access to sensitive data to limited individuals.
Where do I start?
1 Back up your data to the cloud: With Azure backup solutions, you can protect your data and applications to avoid costly business interruptions and meet compliance requirements. Securely extend your on-premises backup storage and data archiving solutions to the cloud - reduce cost and complexity, and achieve efficiency and stability.
2 Mitigate the impacts of disaster: Even a minor outage can put you at a competitive disadvantage. Be ready with a business continuity plan that includes disaster recovery for all your major IT systems - without the expense of a secondary infrastructure.
3 Secure your data in the cloud: With an increase in security breaches and cybercrimes, companies are rightfully concerned about the security of their data in the cloud. Stay in the cloud with Azure security.
