3 Powerful reasons to use Microsoft Azure cloud

Scale as you grow.

Pay as you go.

Microsoft Azure allocates additional resources automatically, depending on the current needs of your system. You only pay for the resources you use.

Improve security, compliance, and recovery.

Azure’s multi-factor authentication and over 50 compliance certifications protect both your IT components and the end users. It will also restore your data faster than your on-premises solution.

Integrate your other tools into one environment

Whether you use Office 365, Oracle, or SAP, Microsoft Azure will allow you to integrate all your other tools (on-premise or in the cloud) seamlessly into one environment

Why you can’t rely on your Azure cloud to manage itself

Some things are indeed easier with Azure. Yet, just because you don’t own the hardware and software your applications are running on, it doesn’t mean you don’t have to secure, monitor, and proactively manage them.

The complexity of your environment can increase drastically, requiring IT skills to manage migrations and troubleshoot issues your in-house team does not have.
Microsoft Azure’s admin console is overwhelming and hard to navigate. And trust us, you really don’t want to click the wrong button there.
Your costs can quickly get out of control because Microsoft Azure’s pricing models are complicated and sometimes also change.
Network, security, access, and other policies and settings need to be updated in your Microsoft 365 and Azure environment when changes come from Microsoft or your business.
VMs still need to be patched. AV needs to be running. And you still need good documentation and performance reports.

Why choose us as your Microsoft Azure managed service provider?

Experience you can trust

Our team members have decades of experience with Windows and Linux IT, including network administration and security, server management, and helpdesk support.

Approach that improves your IT landscape

We’ll be your competent partner who not only keeps your systems running, but is also familiar with your overall IT landscape and sees the bigger picture. To provide you with solutions that last and scale, we consider internal relationships, context, market, industry and impact on other systems.

Speed and flexibility you can rely on

Unlike a large MSP, we don’t let bureaucracy slow down our response time or limit our approach to solving your issues. And although we strive to provide you with a 1-3 year IT roadmap to help you budget, we still use agile techniques like sprints on projects where you’d like us to stay flexible.

Plus, we’re good people who’ll never roll their eyes at you if you have a question or don’t understand something.

How we approach your Microsoft Azure setup or migration project

Initial assessment of your environment (paid discovery project)

First, we’ll meet with you to learn more about your current situation and goals. Then, we’ll access your environment to understand what systems you have in place, how they work, and what state they are in.

After that, we’ll meet with you again to report on our findings, answer your questions, and provide you with a quote for your main project.

Setup of or migration to Microsoft Azure cloud

We’ll set up any services, hardware, and cloud environments and/or migrate your systems from on-premise to the cloud.

Proactive monitoring & management

If you’d like us to monitor and manage your systems in Azure cloud, we’ll install our tools to monitor the hardware and security of your systems. We’ll also look for failures preemptively and take action sooner rather than later to prevent an outage or compromise in advance.

Reactive IT support

Even if your systems are hosted in the cloud, there’ll still be new users to create, networking issues to resolve, and other problems to solve on a daily basis.
Our professional and friendly IT consultants will take care of all the setups and fixes for you so that you can concentrate on running your business.

How much does it cost ?

Your investment depends on the number of servers and the nature of the applications hosted on your Microsoft Azure servers, as well as on the tasks you’d like us to perform.

Since every IT infrastructure is different, we’d need to conduct an assessment first to give you an exact quote. The better we can access the situation, the more accurate our quote and the promised outcomes will be.

That’s why we usually start with a discovery project—a prepaid retainer for a minimum of 15 hours of work. Below is a sample quote for such a project. The scope we’ll suggest to you will depend on our initial video call. Any unused portion of the retainer will be applied to future work.

Sample scope & quote

Prepaid retainer for 15 hours of work that includes the following:

Discussion of your current situation to assess your goals and clarify the billing and progress reporting process
Initial technical assessment of your IT infrastructure: your cloud environment, 365 tenancy, servers, network, software, backups, security, etc.
Development and presentation of a long-term solution based on XYZ best practices that will help you accomplish your goals.

Your investment: Starts at $2,250 CAD
