Ground to Cloud Migrations: Moving Your Environment to Microsoft Azure
If you are considering moving to the cloud, you might be asking yourself: “Why should I move my on-premises environment to Microsoft Azure?”
The answer is multi-layered, but the short version is there are many advantages to hosting your environment in Azure:
It provides you with a highly secure and resilient IT infrastructure that is up to date with all industry-leading security standards and best practices.
It comes with a robust set of features including network isolation, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) protection, and data encryption – significantly reducing your risk of unauthorized access and data breaches.
It offers comprehensive identity and access management solutions such as Azure Active Directory, multi-factor authentication, and role-based accounts.
Its flexibility allows you to scale resources on demand, allowing you to adapt quickly to changing requirements and organizational needs.
It leverages Microsoft’s cloud resilience and high availability of experts protecting its cloud environment.
Microsoft Azure also constantly updates built-in educational and compliance tools to help organizations meet requirements and industry-specific standards.
Assess and Optimize Your Current Azure Environment
If you are already on Microsoft Azure, sitting down with Stoneridge to do a comprehensive assessment of your current environment has several key benefits:
Azure provides you with a comprehensive understanding of your current setup, resource utilization, performance bottlenecks, and areas where you can improve.
It helps identify unused or underutilized resources in your system.
Saving you money by enabling cost optimization by restructuring and identifying unnecessary assets.
It gives you a chance to set security configurations, access controls, and compliance requirements – identifying vulnerabilities to ensure adherence to standards.
It optimizes performance by refining networking configurations, increasing storage solutions, and implementing caching mechanisms.
By assessing your Azure environment, you can save money, strengthen your security, improve performance, and let you deploy the right resources to the proper areas. Stoneridge Software can help you assess your environment and unlock the full potential of Microsoft Cloud investment.

This gives you a holistic view of your environment and a picture of what can be improved. After that, you can prioritize investments and allocate the proper resources to the places that need them most.
