Benefits of Cloud Solutions
Benefits of the cloud are obvious: spontaneously scalable resources, immensely reduced maintenance, data security and flexible costs that are usage-based. Hybrid solutions, in which only part of the data is outsourced to the cloud – resulting in particularly attractive benefits.
Spontaneous, on-demand scaling
The biggest advantage of the cloud: the Azure services – can be spontaneously high or scaled down, so you only pay only for the resources you actually use – depending on your acute needs. Exactly to the minute!
Perfect for marketing campaigns, e-commerce seasonal business such as Christmas or product launches.
No “either … or”: Hybrid solutions as a flexible extension of the IT infrastructure

Azure is integrated into your existing IT environment via a huge network of secure private connections, hybrid database and storage solutions together with additional archiving and encryption functions.
