Why should I use Azure Storage?


Microsoft Azure has been one of the primary building blocks for the Microsoft Cloud System. This incredible product enables users to gain access to their systems anywhere in the world, at any time.

Azure Storage is a Microsoft-managed cloud storage service that offers users great security and a highly-available management service that handles critical problems for you.

Fast, resilient and secure

Azure Storage’s implemented SSD technology provides secure, resilient storage, and the fastest possible performance for its users. Able to run on multiple different platforms, users are guaranteed the best end-user and development experience.

Azure Storage can also be used via popular Microsoft applications, including; OneDrive, SharePoint and Skype.


Slash storage costs

Azure storage has a host of benefits.

For one, Azure Storage works on a ‘Pay for what you use’ billing method, meaning, as an Azure customer, you'll never be overcharged for predetermined amounts of storage space.

Unlike an on-premise environment, where users must purchase additional storage if they run out, Azure Storage bills solely on the exact amount of data you are storing on the system.

Highly available management

In addition to Azure’s flexible ‘Pay for what you use’ model, all system functionality is provided by Microsoft and is based on their billing scheme, including system and service upkeep.

With Azure Storage, you'll rarely need to involve yourself with any service dropout issues. The Azure support team will handle any critical problems and the management of redundancy systems.

For instance, if one Azure Storage cluster drops out, the redundancy systems ensure that another will pick up the slack until the failed clusters are repaired and usable. This limits the amount of downtime and enables users to work without interruption.

More time spent on what counts

Fast, secure and affordable, the Azure storage system is the right choice for anyone looking to streamline their practises at work.

With its high standard management service, the Azure Cloud system allows you to be less involved with your IT infrastructure. With the Microsoft team covering everything as a service, you can focus on your core business instead.
