Azure Landing Zone
An Azure solution that powers your organisational mission
Azure is a cloud platform made up of over 200 products and cloud services that build the foundation for new solutions to today’s challenges and future opportunities. With the options to build, run and manage applications across multiple clouds, both within on-premise and remote environments, Azure equips teams to customise tools and frameworks based on their needs.
Azure is a form of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (Paas), forming a cloud computing service that provides essential compute, storage and networking resources on demand and on a pay-as-you-go basis.
When organisations migrate their infrastructure to an IaaS solution, they reduce maintenance of on-premises data centres, reduce hardware costs and build real-time business insights. IaaS solutions allow teams to scale IT resources up and down as demand requires, enabling the fast provision of new applications and increasing the reliability of underlying infrastructure without the need to maintain physical hardware.
Platform as a Service is a complete development and deployment environment that’s cloud-based, with resources that enable the execution of everything from simple cloud-based apps to nuanced and detailed cloud-enabled enterprise applications. Resources are purchased on a pay-as-you-go basis, with PaaS including infrastructure and middleware, development tools, business intelligence (BI) services, database management systems and more. PaaS enables teams to find support for a complete web application lifecycle. A number of Azure’s PaaS services include App Services, SQL, Azure Search and Azure CDN.
Skip out on the complexity and overhead needs of buying and managing physical servers and data centre infrastructure. With each resource available as a separate service component, you’ll only pay for the resources you need, when you need them.
Azure takes care of the infrastructure while teams move nimbly and proactively to purchase, install, configure and manage software such as operating systems, middleware and applications.
