The Case for Modern Infrastructure  

If you are curious about what modern infrastructure is and what can be done to properly deploy it, you have come to the right place. Modern infrastructure consists of next-generation technology and services that form IT environments that are highly flexible, scalable and agile. Modern infrastructure is dynamic, diverse and elastic by nature. It provides organizations the opportunity to consistently deliver optimized user experiences by utilizing multi-cloud and hybrid cloud deployments, containerized workloads and serverless computing

Today’s businesses are seeking maximum agility and performance from their IT infrastructure in order to deliver powerful user experiences. Management teams are faced with increasing pressure to do more with less. Upgrading to a modern infrastructure is more cost effective, in most cases, as opposed to investing in private data centers. Public cloud platforms, such as Azure, enable organizations with more flexibility to increase or decrease storage and computer requirements as needed. This eliminates having to invest in static server capabilities that can go un-utilized. 

When it comes to modern infrastructure look no further than Microsoft Azure. This cloud computing service allows you to build, deploy, and manage apps quickly and easily without the headache of buying or maintaining any underlying infrastructure. Azure’s integrated cloud resources cater to your security and compliance requirements while also being customizable for to fit your unique needs. Additionally, Azure is conveniently integrated fully with all Microsoft products. It seamlessly complements your existing software and applications. Cost effective and flexible, Azure is the optimal solution for businesses looking to grow while simultaneously staying a step ahead of the competition. 

Azure has plenty of benefits that make it a great option for modern infrastructure. First, it’s perfect for small businesses and established enterprises. The easily scalable nature of Azure is a massive advantage. Your IT demands can be met while operating on a pay-as-you-go pricing model that can adapt to budgets of all sizes. Azure can help save on in-house IT costs including hardware and maintenance due to the fact businesses can launch and store internal and external applications in the cloud. Azure also complements and expands your current IT infrastructure. 

IT personnel will have the ability to focus on your business without worrying about in-house capabilities or maintaining equipment that has a tendency to be overtaxed or underused. Azure also offers rapid deployments at the forefront of IaaS (infrastructure as a service) and PaaS (platform as a service). This hybrid cloud environment allows companies to decide whether they operate autonomously or make use of the public cloud. 

The security, compliance and disaster recovery characteristics of Azure also make it a great choice. The numerous compliance certifications and being a top choice of high-risk industries such as health care and government are the proof. The platform and end users are equally protected. Services such as multi-factor authentication and sophisticated disaster recovery abilities that restore data in the matter of hours also addresses the needs of businesses. Azure has created specific applications in response to the unique needs of businesses.  

The high-risk and sensitive nature of industries such as government, healthcare, manufacturing, and financial services benefit from Azure. Some of these features include offline cloud services, individualized security needs, simplified compliance and even modernized customer apps.
