Six advantages of Azure

■ Scalability

Based on actual needs, businesses can immediately adjust the specifications or quantity of their services with near unlimited scalability. It brings exceptional benefits to businesses who have difficulty estimating network traffic or significant business growth.

■ Acceleration of time to market

With Azure, businesses can quickly build development, testing, and pre-production environments, access toolkits and platforms that accelerate the progress of developers, start global collaboration securely and efficiently, and promote large-scaled innovation, accelerating application deployment and shortening the time to market.

■ Effective integration of Microsoft tools

Azure supports high-efficiency integration with existing Microsoft Office Tools. Full integration of Office 365 and Active Directory enables businesses to extend the internal and cloud deployment of knowhow and consistent experience within the organization.

■ Scalability/security/compliance

Microsoft invests over USD $1 billion in security research and development for Azure to protect the business assets and data of customers through the active monitoring of over 3,500 cybersecurity experts. Additionally, Azure supports over 100 compliance offerings to proactively safeguard data and streamline compliance for customers with the most comprehensive compliance coverage.

■ Cost reduction

Qualified customers can enjoy the benefits from Azure Hybrid Benefit. It works by letting you use Software Assurance-enabled Windows Server and SQL Server licenses or subscriptions in Azure to save up to 85% over the standard pay-as-you-go rate to reduce the costs of running your workloads.

■ Data insight enhancement

The high price-to-performance ratio Azure analytics and data governance service portfolio satisfies the goals of business intelligence, data warehousing, advanced analytics, data governance, and machine learning to help businesses make in-depth data analysis to improve the decision-making process.
