Microsoft Azure Consulting From Levit8

The Open, Flexible Platform You Need When You Need it the Most

In February of 2010, Microsoft changed the face of cloud computing forever when it unleashed the first public release of its Azure service on the world. Immediately, it was billed as something of a "one stop shop" for all of your cloud needs - supporting not only many different programming languages, but also software as a service, platform as a service, infrastructure as a service and more.

Technology has changed dramatically in the last ten years, but the core focus of Azure has not. It's still one of the best ways to build, test, deploy and manage both applications and services in the cloud available to the market today.

Whether you're migrating to Azure for the first time or just need help managing all the work that you've already done, the team at Levit8 have years of experience working in Azure environments of all shapes and sizes - and that is experience we can't wait to leverage to your advantage.

Azure Migration:

What You Need to Know

At Levit8, we always begin all of our Microsoft Azure consulting sessions by taking the time to get to know as much about your business as possible. That gives us the best chance to come up with not only the right migration strategy, but also long-term cloud computing strategy, to meet your needs. We'll even conduct a cloud-readiness assessment to help make sure things go off without a hitch. We can help you at any part of the process you need - be it in terms of architectural design, project management, project execution, governance, compliance, security and more. All told, we're here for you at all times - from Azure evaluation to integration to implementation, deployment and beyond.

Regardless of what you need or when you need it, Levit8 is always ready to answer the call and help guarantee that the full power of the modern cloud works for you.

Azure vs. AWS: The State of Today's Cloud

No discussion of Microsoft Azure would be complete without also taking a look at the service's largest competitor: Amazon Web Services, or AWS for short.

Azure has four key classes, too, but they're a bit different from those of AWS. On the Azure side of the conversation, we have performance, networking, compute, and data management and databases.

Amazon Web Services logo

Amazon's AWS has four major classes of services to choose from, all of which fall under the umbrella of IaaS or "infrastructure as a service." These include content delivery and storage, compute, networking and database functionality.

All told, Azure tends to be the best option for those organizations that are already heavily invested in the Microsoft ecosystem. If your business has run on Windows machines for years, if you're totally satisfied and if you just want to take those benefits to the next level by embracing everything that the cloud has to offer, Azure is very likely the way to go. That's not to say that AWS is inherently "bad" - far from it. It's just that Azure will likely offer you a greater degree of flexibility and malleability that AWS might not be able to match.
