Offload management of your Microsoft servers and applications

We consistently hear from our Microsoft customers that they want to get out of the infrastructure management business and, instead, utilize their scarce and talented IT resources to drive innovation and business growth. However, as we've learned from experience, moving your data center off premise or to the cloud can be incredibly complex if you don't have the right skills and expertise. This could mean you struggle to get the most out of your Microsoft and IT investments.

  • Once you extend your business to the cloud, will you experience performance bottlenecks due to ineffective architectural designs?
  • Can you make effective use of infrastructure technologies and keep up with continuous feature upgrades?
  • Who will be there to manage your cloud and/or dedicated infrastructure and applications and provide specialized Microsoft skills to support, monitor and patch your environments?
