AQL will help you maintain control of your company applications and data in-house while leveraging the benefits of cloud with Office 365. Using Microsoft Azure for hybrid cloud deployments greatly reduces the large overhead costs associated with server hardware and maintenance, network hardware, data storage, etc. In fact, expenses can be 40% less than the cost of operating a private cloud in a colocation facility.
Before Office 365 and Microsoft Azure, you were in charge of the management and equipment you needed to run your organization. This greatly increases IT costs because it all must be supported and monitored by your IT staff, not to mention the servers and virtual machines that are constantly having to be updated and expanded.
Microsoft Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) options allow you to take advantage of the cloud where it makes most since for your business, allowing communication between your systems placed in the cloud and those better served on-premises. Our Microsoft Azure consultants will help you chose and deploy the hybrid cloud deployment option that is best for your organization. Below is some additional information on the differences between IaaS and PaaS cloud deployments.
