An Introduction to Cloud Computing with Azure

By helping to plan, migrate and maintain your cloud environment, we can help remove the complexity of cloud.
The rise of Cloud computing is increasing at an exponential rate year on year, currently exceeding over $350 billion!

Both large and small companies are considering how using Azure apps and infrastructure can form part of their digital transformation journey, from maintaining the invested fixed on-premises solutions they need to keep, while moving to more agile consumption-based cloud models for other parts of their business.

What is Microsoft Azure used for? Microsoft Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud services designed to help your organisation meet your business challenges. You’ll be given the freedom to build, manage and deploy applications on a massive global network using your favourite tools and frameworks.

With Azure, your business will establish and consistently meet clear security and privacy requirements across a range of global accreditations including ISO and PCI DSS.

Azure apps and infrastructure

Azure Virtual Machines

Create virtual machine(s) in Azure with the help of our expert team couldn’t be easier. We can provide advice and guidance on which Azure app and infrastructure best fits the requirements and then quickly create a Windows Virtual Machine in Azure on a short of long term basis. Azure also supports a variety of other operating systems such as Azure Linux Virtual Machine or Azure MAC OS Virtual Machine, so if the application requires a specific OS, Vissensa expertise can play a part in a successful deployment.

Sadly, many organisations pay too much for their cloud deployments due to the wrong Azure app and infrastructure option being selected in the design and build phase of a cloud migration, which are then difficult to remove or amend. Our team sizes and configures Azure Virtual Machine deployments on a daily basis for our clients. This means they are highly skilled at designing cloud projects to ensure the appropriate resources are selected to ensure unnecessary costs don’t creep into a configuration without sacrificing flexibility.

Microsoft Azure Applications, Remote Desktop Services or Windows 365

Utilising the flexibility of cloud technology, it’s now possible to virtualise many aspects of an organisations IT requirements. As a managed services business and a Microsoft Partner, we see both ends of an organisation’s IT provision. The technical end where on-premise and cloud based servers and storage are supporting the business applications in data centres. Then the front of office consumption of these applications through tools like Azure Remote Desktop and Windows 365.

Both Azure Remote Desktop and Windows 365 are designed to simplify the user experience of connecting to colleagues and the Azure apps and Infrastructure required for day-to-day tasks.
With Windows 365, the apps used by the business become available on any compatible desktop, laptop or mobile device and as the work is stored in the Azure cloud, it can be picked up from the point it was left off, anywhere. This allows businesses to adapt to secure new ways of working and maintains a great user experience for a more mobile workforce.

Azure Remote Desktop has been designed to allow a common set of applications from the Microsoft stack to be configured and maintained centrally (in the Azure cloud) enabling a consistent set of applications to be delivered to a user community. Highly configurable, different sets of Azure Remote Desktop applications can be grouped together so that specific user groups receive only the applications they need, controlling and securing access, simplifying the user’s desktop and reducing unwanted costs from applications or services that are not required.
Azure app and Infrastructure support extends beyond the desktop and will provide the environment to run virtual platforms such as VMware on Azure or Azure AD (Active Directory) which is becoming a popular replacement to on-premise AD setups.

With our managed service experience that can seamlessly operate and maintain your Azure Apps and Infrastructure deployment, Vissensa is the ideal partner to plan, purchase, install and configuration your Azure environment.

Azure Database Services

Moving your database to the cloud is a direction many organisations are looking towards due to the added latency and advantages of Azure SQL database being off premise. However, it's usually a big project and one that requires a lot of thought due to the importance of the data.

Our experts can provide Azure database services to plan your project, install and build your Azure SQL database architecture. You can even trust our team with the Azure database management so you can focus on other tasks.

Azure Cloud Storage Services

The explosion of the use of Azure storage by large and small organisations alike is fuelled by the ability of this service to adapt quickly to any data storage requirement along with the attributes of being highly available and scalable while remaining a secure place to store business-critical information.

Azure storage cloud offers a range of storage options designed to accommodate many types of files or objects. These options include Azure Disk Storage, used primarily to store loadable images for Azure Virtual Machines, Azure Blob storage, a competitor to AWS’s S3 storage solution used for storing cloud objects, archive data and large amounts of data to be used by connected Azure applications. Where analytics of the storage and retrieval of large amounts of data is required, Azure Data Lake, a facility akin to its name, is the solution. Large pools of data can be stored and managed to power business analytics tasks through Azure SQL database storage, Azure data share or an Azure storage file service.

Managing and maintaining data storage requires expertise and oversight in order not to endlessly consume more and more space without understanding what data is being stored. It’s rather like the box of things we put in the loft or cupboard because it “might be needed”, however, with governance, compliance and data privacy and retentions rules, having an expert eye on how data and storage are being consumed is always a bonus. Our team manages and operates hundreds of terabytes of data storage on a daily basis in our own cloud, on-premise and in the Azure cloud, so we are an ideal partner to help plan your storage requirements and infrastructure.

Azure Firewall Options

Securing Azure apps and infrastructure so that business can operate with the flexibility it needs requires robust security solutions that focus on operability and reliability. Azure Firewall options provide security and support to organisations in order to protect their data and applications.

Cloud is not a silver bullet when it comes to security. Microsoft is only responsible for the security of the infrastructure that maintains the cloud, so it’s imperative you protect your own data and applications that flow between your users or other platforms with an Azure firewall.

The Azure Firewall is a stateful Firewall that allows your cloud applications to interact and scale with other services without the need for physical firewall deployments. The stateful capability of the Azure firewall means that the firewall will process and store intelligence about safe connections that your applications make while analysing the inbound and outbound traffic using the rules and policies you have configured.

Not every type of Firewall requirement is available through Azure firewall, which is where the ability to use Azure Virtual Machines combined with OEM Vendors such as Sonicwall Virtual Firewall bridges the gaps.
Although easy to purchase, the correct setup and configuration are vital to the security of your business and its data. That’s why Vissensa operates a firewall managed service option with our Physical and Virtual firewall deployments including Azure Firewall.
Our team have relationships with numerous security vendors and can help identify and install the right solution for your needs.

Azure Backup and Recovery Services

The ability to recover systems and data successfully when an organisations services become unavailable is usually a hindsight moment for business without the services to do so. Immediate financial loss, reduced customer confidence, reputational damage and lost data intelligence are just a few of the consequences.
Maintaining the infrastructure on which to build a cohesive backup and recovery plan has always been a big financial commitment. However, the introduction of Azure backup and recovery services removed the barriers of cost and complexity in developing a recovery plan to support any size of business. It has removed the need to spend Capex on equipment that is only used in the event of a failure.

Azure backup and recovery services are a fast and cost effective way of ensuring that business continuity can be maintained for the critical services that keep a business running. With the added advantage that it can be slimmed down or scaled up quickly to respond to market conditions.

The ability to select where a backup and recovery location or “geo” is situated from Microsoft’s extensive list of operating centres mean that an organisations backup and recovery plans can be tailored to fit the exact requirements.

Vissensa's Business continuity options include Azure backup and recovery services and other leading recovery tools. These options secure organisations data and systems every day. Talk to our team who can help identify the right software and configuration for your needs, from file recovery to a database backup strategy and much more.

Azure For Data Analytics

As Azure can hold large quantities of data it also lends itself to being perfect for data analytics.

Our team can help with Azure Synapse Analytics architecture so you can maximise the value of your data. We can also assist you to enhance key capabilities of Azure data lake analytics.

Whatever you Azure Data Analytics project is, we can plan and install a solution for you utilising the Microsoft Azure analytics platform. If you would like us to manage it for you we can also offer a managed service.

Azure Internet of Things

The explosion of computing devices that can send and receive data are powering new customer on-demand services and data intelligence. This has created a seismic shift in the way data is processed. The “Internet of Things” consumes a vast amount of compute, storage and communications, leading to the advent of edge computing services such as Azure Internet of Things. These services are designed to allow more of the processing to be carried out closer to the point of demand, speeding up the delivery of content and information to a user.

Vissensa can help you implement powerful applications that integrate with connected devices with Azure Internet of things (IoT). We can devise a solution with your lines of business to assist with delivering content and receiving data intelligence quicker via edge computing methods.

Azure Connection Options

Connectivity is the lifeblood of any IT service and in today's interconnected world, the need to control these connections has become ever more time-consuming. It’s one reason that Vissensa operates a set of services focused on network connectivity and management for large or small organisations.

Within these services is a range of Azure connection options, covering simplicity, security and performance. All of these options provide a flexible cost-effective way of building a network topology that suites the business requirement.

Our team is well versed in developing private connection services using Azure Express Route. These connect a comprehensive service catalogue of 3rd party applications residing in Azure directly to an organisation’s own infrastructure and services.
We can also offer Azure Virtual WAN services, that can remove the complexity and security issues of a traditional hub and spoke network, providing separation between SecOps, InfraOps and DevOps.

Azure Optimisation

Flexibility in IT can really transform a business, but if the services that are being consumed become too big or too sprawling, there is a real danger that an organisation can be spending time and money running services that don’t support the business.

Alternatively, they may have been outmoded by new services coming on stream. Vissensa’s Azure optimisation service can build a picture of what services are consuming Azure technology and determine where efficiencies can be made and ensure Azure cost optimisation.

Azure optimisation may include reviewing existing instances as well as determining the size and shape of service schedules for migration. Our Azure team will work closely with you to ensure you get the most from your Azure app and infrastructure investment.
