As a small business owner, you may have heard about Microsoft Azure and wondered if this cloud platform is right for your company. While historically Azure has been viewed as an enterprise-level solution, it offers key benefits that can help streamline operations for SMBs too.

What is Microsoft Azure?

Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform by Microsoft. It provides a wide range of services including deploying and managing applications and services via Microsoft data centres. This can eliminate the need for small businesses to invest in their own on-premise infrastructure such as servers.

Key Benefits of Azure for SMEs:

Cost savings – Azure provides access to enterprise-level technologies on a pay-as-you-go basis, so you only pay for what you use. This avoids large upfront investments in on-premise servers and data centres.

Security – Your business can benefit from Microsoft’s industry-leading security measures like encryption, threat monitoring and frequently updated data protection to secure your applications and information in the cloud.

Backups and Disaster Recovery - Azure backups provides an additional backup and data recovery method, helping ensure business continuity if disaster strikes.

Flexibility - Azure resources can scale up or down to meet your changing needs. You also have the flexibility to adopt individual Azure services. This includes virtual machines to replicate on-premises workloads in the cloud.

Access from Anywhere - With Azure, you can access your apps, services and data from anywhere with an internet connection across a wide range of devices. This enables robust remote working capabilities.

Focus on Business - Using managed Azure services allows you to focus on running your business instead of maintaining servers and infrastructure.
