Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform is one of the most highly adopted public cloud platforms on the planet, but managing and getting the best out of it can be complex.

As one of a select group of Microsoft Direct Cloud Solution Providers (CSPs) with multiple Gold Partner competencies, we provide expert consultancy and managed services to help you use Azure to transform your IT infrastructure and desktop environments.

While Microsoft is responsible for the data centre and infrastructure management that underpins Azure, they do not take responsibility for the design, migration, implementation and management of the services you use. This means typical platform management characteristics such as performance, capacity, availability and security need to be designed, deployed, monitored and maintained. This can be complex - which is where our Azure managed service comes in.

Our specialist consultants and highly skilled engineers work with you to design and deploy a high-performing environment that has security and best practice at the forefront. Our tailored managed service provides 24/7 management 365 days a year, or can support you in areas where you just need extra skills or resources. With one provider managing your Azure services, you will benefit from greater clarity and simple monthly billing.

Key Features:

  • Expert design, deployment and optimisation

  • Highly available infrastructure

  • Hybrid-ready solutions

  • Full or partial 24/7 management

  • Securely managed infrastructure, desktop and data solutions

  • Global service availability

  • Simple, monthly invoicing in GBP or USD

  • Single point of ownership

What Is Microsoft Azure?

Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform is one of the most highly adopted public cloud platforms on the planet, but managing and getting the best out of it can be complex.

As one of a select group of Microsoft Direct Cloud Solution Providers (CSPs) with multiple Gold Partner competencies, we provide expert consultancy and managed services to help you use Azure to transform your IT infrastructure and desktop environments.

Azure is fast and flexible and can be used to replace - or used in addition to - your on-premise infrastructure. With so many services available through Azure it can be a challenge to understand what environment is best for your business. Without constant oversight it is easy to lose sight of consumption, leading to unplanned spend and overprovisioning of services.

What Are The Benefits of Microsoft Azure?

Azure supports the broadest selection of operating systems, programming languages, frameworks, tools, databases and devices from over 100 data centre locations globally – providing developers and IT professionals with technologies they trust. With integrated tools, pre-configured templates and a full suite of available services, Azure enables you to build and manage apps for enterprise, mobile and web and the Internet of Things.

What are the Benefits of a Managed Service for Microsoft Azure?

Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform offers a range of integrated services, from computing, desktop, networking and storage to data, analytics and intelligence. However, designing the optimum environment and aligning it to best practice, security and availability is complex and managing the environment and commercial spend once it has been deployed can be difficult.

iomart’s Managed Azure Solutions provide you with expert design, delivery and 24/7 operational support.s Our consultants design the Azure environment and supporting connectivity and ensure seamless migration, while our operations team manages and monitors the service to ensure that it follows best practices. We can also monitor your consumption to help prevent uncontrolled usage, helping you to scale and align your IT costs with the demands of your business.

With iomart’s Managed Azure Solutions, you can reduce the complexity of using Azure with 24/7 fully-qualified and accredited support from iomart. We can deploy as a standalone environment or as part of a hybrid cloud-capable service, which can integrate Azure with your on-premises solution or other cloud platforms. The result is - you get maximum benefit from your Azure investments and the range of services that Microsoft offers.
