The opportunity of the hybrid Cloud with Microsoft Azure

Extended support for Windows Server 2003 ended two years ago. If your customers are still running the product, they’re facing unexpected security and regulatory risks. Don’t let end of life end their business.

The reality is: Cloud is the new norm. Focus is already shifting from infrastructure and software investment to value-added services and business problem-solving. Over the next 24 months, 45.1% of businesses see themselves achieving full Cloud optimisation*. These businesses are your customers – their ambition is your opportunity.

Why consider Microsoft Azure?

Ideal for growing businesses, IaaS platforms – implemented via the Cloud – are cost-effective, requiring no hardware expenditure, and flexible, easily scaled as your customers grow or their requirements change. Microsoft Azure is an open and flexible Cloud platform on which to build IaaS, whether for hybrid or pure Cloud-based infrastructures.

– Benefit from a wide range of usage-based services, including applications, storage and network services, to give your customers the opex approach they’re looking for. Sell subscriptions directly to the customer, and bill them as they wish – by SKU, meter, or a price set by you.

– Build applications using any language, tool or framework, and implement the Cloud into almost any existing infrastructure – whether your customers are looking for a hybrid solution, or full Cloud adoption.

– Count on 99.5% monthly SLA, automatic OS and service patching, and let the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace automatically provision services for bundling with additional Cloud solutions. We’ll even handle your monthly consolidated bills.

With Microsoft Azure, you can harness the potential of Cloud computing to increase your business profitability, and solve your customers’ business problems.
