Public Cloud

Global scale, integrated services

Most organizations can reap serious benefits from global scale and commoditized cloud services delivered through public cloud and hyper-provider cloud solutions, this is especially true for less exacting workloads – those that require global availability or those that need rapid elasticity.

We have a tenured strategic partnership with Microsoft to help our clients utilize their cloud platform: Microsoft Azure. Azure is a collection of integrated service – computing, storage, data, networking, and applications – that help you move faster, do more, and save money.

  • 55 percent of Fortune 500 companies use Windows Azure
  • On average, over 1,000 new customers sign up for Windows Azure every day
  • Microsoft has invested $15 billion to build its massive cloud infrastructure

 

Getting Started with Azure

As a platform, Azure can be leveraged for many different workloads, which we understand can be daunting. How do you get started? Which workloads are best suited for Azure? How do I leverage the benefits of public cloud with confidence?

Long View is one of Microsoft’s largest North American Partners. Deep technical and service expertise aligned with a breath of knowledge around service offerings make Long View an ideal partner to help you move workloads to Azure and even integrate Azure into your broader hybrid cloud strategy.
