Benefits to Microsoft Azure

What is Microsoft Azure?

Commonly referred to as one of the big three public cloud providers, Microsoft Azure is a set of ever-growing cloud-based services designed to help organisations fulfil a range of IT requirements.

Microsoft Azure, along with other cloud providers, takes the burden of physical hardware ownership away from organisations to provide a highly scalable (pay as you use) model that offers resources when they’re required, on tap.

Unlike private cloud models, Azure uses a pay-per-second model which Microsoft openly publicises online. While that sounds expensive; with the right management, services can be scheduled for use only when required to dramatically reduce costs.

The public cloud model

For many requirements, the public cloud is commonly regarded as the future.

The scale of services that the big three – Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services – have over private cloud services is vast. That means their security credentials are unrivalled by any private provision, purely because of the resources available to the big three.

For many, it’s the consumption-based usage model that only public clouds can provide that is the most compelling proposition, as detailed below.

  • Long-term commitment on all hardware
  • Up front capital expenditure
  • Scaling inefficiencies


Private Cloud

  • Long-term commitment on all hardware
  • Month-by-month operating expenditure
  • Partial scaling efficiencies


Public Cloud

  • Month-by-month commitments
  • Month-by-month operating expenditure
  • Full scaling efficiencies
