Cloud Computing

Scale globally with Windows Azure cloud computing.

Competition and opportunity are global these days and expectations are high. For IT and business leaders, this means being customer-centric, highly responsive and cost-effective globally.

  • Companies leveraging the cloud are able to reach new markets faster than ever, in a cost-effective manner, while maintaining control.
  • The ability to quickly scale up or down, with high availability options and low administration time means more business results and fewer emergencies.

According to Gartner in a recent survey, 60% of North American organizations expect purchasing decisions to be made jointly by the business and IT, which is higher than the worldwide projection of 52% and representative of a more-mature market, as SaaS becomes more pervasive throughout the enterprise.

Spend less on getting to market and more on making your market bigger.

Get more customer-aligned.

Sitecore and Azure means you can deploy quickly in new markets with no hardware infrastructure to plan, purchase, deploy and manage. You can focus more on making your systems support a digital strategy that engages your customers and increases revenue.

Freedom to focus on your competitive advantages.

Rather than being challenged around the clock with 7 x 24 hour time zone demands and remote, multi-country infrastructure operations, Azure’s Platform as a Service can empower you to gain business advantage without the operational drain.

With Sitecore software and Windows Azure:

Best of both worlds for IT. Your Core and Master Sitecore servers are deployed locally at your facilities behind your firewall, but your public facing Sitecore web servers are hosted at Microsoft global cloud facilities. Security and scalability are maximized.

Agility. Deploy worldwide with a single click from within the Sitecore UI, in as little as one hour- a fraction of the time for typical infrastructure deployment. You'll save considerable time and capital costs.

Scale with reliability. Deploy on Demand without hardware concerns. You’ll quickly gain geographic coverage, have optimized local page-load response time, and redundancy for 99.9 % uptime reliability. With multiple datacenters and diverse bandwidth, you maximize disaster-preparedness.
