What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing is the delivery of IT services over the internet. By hosting your existing systems and applications in the cloud, you minimise the risk of data loss and improve your ability to work remotely. All of these benefits remove capital costs associated with ageing infrastructure and the constant replacement cycle.

There's no need worry about keeping up to date with the latest technology. We provide advice and training for you and your staff on all of the cloud services we provide. In most cases, we design the systems to have a minimal learning, so they look familiar to your normal way of working. We believe IT should work for you, rather than you for IT.

When it comes to cloud, there is no 'one size fits all' model. We work closely with our clients to understand their needs, tailoring a cloud solution that works with your business requirements. Advancery partner with Microsoft, holding several Microsoft and Microsoft Azure competencies.

Microsoft Cloud

Our simple and scalable Cloud Solutions are designed to fit your organisations needs. As a Microsoft Certified Partner, we build our solutions on the the Azure cloud.

Microsoft Azure is a cloud platform and infrastructure that allows businesses to move to the cloud. Or to what is now the new normal, a 'hybrid solution'. Meaning that some servers, applications and data remain on-site, while 'cloud capable' elements are moved to the cloud. This allows businesses to gain the best of both world's while remaining agile.

Advancery is a Certified Microsoft Partner with multiple competencies in Azure Cloud Solutions. We have many years experience in migrating and supporting clients within the Microsoft Azure infrastructure.

Is cloud right for you?

Whether you are looking for a full cloud based environment or a hybrid model, you need to understand how moving to the cloud or going hybrid can benefit your business. We will explain the options available to you and make a comprehensive proposal, ensuring you fully understand what migrating to the cloud would mean for your business.

What are the benefits?

There are many cloud solutions available on the market, but there is rarely an 'off the shelf' option that fully meet your exact business needs.
