The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether itís email, backup or file sharing, most consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so popular itís easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a cloud based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from HPE and a comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Why should you consider Microsoft Azure? Benefits include improved efficiency and agility, scalability, lower IT costs and a consistent user experience between Microsoft's Cloud and your cloud.
CDW Principal Consulting Engineer Matt Riley also says Microsoft Azure offers multi-factor authentication, giving users a more robust identity management structure, allowing them to automatically provision users. Watch this webinar to learn more about Microsoft Azure.
