On Linux or Windows on your premises or in a Cloud, you can run SQL as a Service and have it integrated and automated within your current provisioning service. What’s more, you can run Micro SQL databases greatly reducing the compute resource normally required.
Is your organisation using Cloud? Maybe you would like to understand it better and how it can be used in different parts of your IT environment and Data Center. Microsoft’s Azure is the preferred option for enterprises large and small as it goes beyond the standard Cloud services to offer so much more.
Azure Stack can extend the power of Azure into your organisation thereby enabling services and applications that will readily transform your business. How will you take advantage of this and how will you lever your existing infrastructure and services to keep them relevant.
You have already virtualised your compute but what about Storage and Network virtualisation? A Software Defined Data Center, with Server 2016 can help transform your Data Center, with Containers, Nano Servers, Shielded VMs, Storage Spaces Direct and more.

Here's how you make it happen
If you’re thinking of moving to the Cloud then you will need a team and not just IT people, if your moving applications to IaaS, PaaS or SaaS, then the business will be impacted, so you will need the application owners on your team. All of this and much more….
You probably already understand your environment but now you have, to discover things about it through the lens of Cloud readiness for example: you will need to understand the egress of data when in a Public Cloud as this is charged for. Pricing is different in the Cloud…
Will some applications run better and be more cost effective by migrating them to PaaS, or should some applications be retired in favour of pay as you go SaaS applications for example why deploy SQL on IaaS in Azure when you use SQL as PaaS…
How will you prioritise the migration of applications to the Cloud and what will be the factors that determine the priorities. Is the best way to give them a weighted score based on what’s important to your organisations needs and time lines.
You’ll need these. You may already have some subscriptions, but how will you consolidate them. Are they in Azure Service Manager, Azure Resource Manager or AWS. And how are you going to back up your applications if they reside in the Cloud.
Ever wanted to have real business continuity technology and not just Back-up but real Disaster Recovery, but think it is too expensive. Think again, with Azure Site Recovery you can use Azure for your DR site, but you only pay for the Virtual Machines when they are in use. This makes Azure Site Recovery a high performance, low cost option for business continuity uses. At Vigilant.IT we have got a great Get Started offer for you.
