Azure Support Services Available from Stoneridge
Many current Dynamics users are opting to move their on-premises instance of Dynamics to Azure to eliminate expensive spend on updated servers and ongoing maintenance and security. Stoneridge has a variety of support services to ensure your Azure environment has the correct memory allocation, licensing, and is running at peak performance.
A key benefit of hosting your Dynamics software on Azure is the ability to scale up and down based on your usage. For example, if there are certain times during the year you’re processing more transactions and require additional bandwidth, you can increase your Azure consumption and then can scale back down when your needs return to normal. This ensures you’re only paying for what you need when you need it.
