The number one asset in your business is undoubtedly its staff. Every employee has spent months and years steering the direction of the firm and moving its goals and ambitions forward week by week. It can be detrimental then to find your staff spending the majority of their time “fire fighting;” i.e., working to solve mundane problems and tasks as they happen within the business. Azure’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud platform has the power to transform your business and put your staff in a more commanding role of the day-to-day.
In a sentence, IaaS allows your firm to respond more quickly to constantly changing conditions. Whether responding to internal innovation or external factors such as security, stability, or scalability, IaaS is structured precisely to allow your expert staff to handle key business issues in their own domain with efficient ease.
Used across multiple industries, common uses of IaaS include:
It is self-evident to IT departments and technically savvy personnel that cloud solutions can benefit tech departments by adding computing power while improving stability and reliability. What is less evident are the improvements Azure IaaS can bring elsewhere in the firm too.
Financial and legal departments benefit from Azure services just as much as IT, development, and test. Data stored on the Azure environment is done so in full compliance with up-to-the-minute regulations. The privacy and security demands of industry catered to by IaaS provides peace of mind and takes one critical component from the organization’s plate.
One of the common misconceptions of the cloud is its lack of security or loss of control by moving data from one location to another. The reverse is far truer. Microsoft’s data centers in locations around the globe protect data with two-tier authentication, biometric controls, and incident response teams that react to unfolding events as they happen. Very few alternate options have the security and dependability as Azure cloud services.
The cloud computing marketplace is more competitive now than it has ever been. Multiple providers each have competitive business offerings with their own features and benefits. Below are some of the key features which make Azure IaaS stand out ahead of its competition.
The most powerful, flexible, and valuable resource your business has access to is its staff. Azure IaaS provides them the tools and technologies to do more and fulfill their full potential on projects that matter.

Adopting emerging cloud technologies, consolidating resources, and improving processes is the key. “IT no longer just supports corporate operations as it traditionally has but is fully participating in business value delivery. Not only does this shift IT from a back-office role to the front of business, but it also changes the source of funding from an overhead expense that is maintained, monitored, and sometimes cut, to the thing that drives revenue,” said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner.Explore
Deliver Powerful Insights Instantaneously with Federated Queries - No Matter Where Your Data Resides The concept of federated queries isn’t new.

For example, AWS developed Amazon Athena on top of the Presto code base, while Google’s BigQuery is based on Cloud SQL.Explore
