Local servers, Cheops cloud or Microsoft Azure? We connect everything so that the location of your data doesn't matter: you have equally good and fast access to everything.
What is Microsoft Azure?
Microsoft Azure is the collective name for the cloud services of Microsoft, delivered through the global network of Microsoft's data centres. You can build and use all kinds of applications through the public Microsoft Azure cloud – so not just those of Microsoft. With a provider like Microsoft, you don't have to worry about reliability: the software giant is constantly investing in security, compliance and redundancy.
Hybrid cloud: the ideal solution
The cloud makes your organisation more flexible, innovative, productive and efficient, and also delivers appreciable cost savings. For most organisations, a combination of public cloud and private cloud is ideal: the hybrid cloud.
Where do I store my data?
Where does Microsoft Azure fit into this picture? Together with you we first determine which business applications you may prefer to have running on your local servers, which you may transfer to the Cheops cloud and which to the public cloud – such as Microsoft Azure. The Cheops cloud operates in a perfectly secure data centre of Cheops and we can link it to Microsoft Azure. As a result, it makes no difference at all to your users where their data are saved exactly: everything is accessible quickly and consistently, and Cheops is responsible for the support of your entire cloud environment.
