Microsoft Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud services to help your organisation meet your business challenges. It’s the freedom to build, manage, and deploy applications on a massive, global network using your favourite tools and frameworks.
Why partner with think S3 in Azure?
As one of only 2 Tier 1 partners to launch the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider programme in the UK, we’ve been there from the start in Azure and we have the experience to match.
Over time we have built our expertise and customer base to remain a leading Azure partner, making a real difference to our customers and leading the way in delivering the full spectrum of solutions available in Azure.
It delivers unmatched productivity
Azure’s integrated tools, pre-built templates and managed services make it easier to build and manage enterprise, mobile, web and Internet of Things (IoT) apps faster, using skills developers and IT professionals already have and technologies they already know.
Take advantage of over 100 end to end services so that you can get up and running fast – just bring your own code in the language of your choice, with Node.js, Java, .Net and more fully supported so that you can use what you already know and love.
Easily connect existing applications with more than 150 Azure Logic App connectors – including for Office 365, Salesforce, Dropbox and many more.
It’s open and flexible
It works with existing IT
Some cloud providers make you choose between your data centre and the cloud. Not Azure, which easily integrates with your existing IT environment through the largest network of secure private connections, hybrid database and storage solutions, and data residency and encryption features – so your assets stay right where you need them. You can even run Azure in your own data centre with Azure Stack. Azure’s hybrid cloud solutions give you the best of both worlds: more IT options, less complexity and cost.
Have existing products that you know and love? Work with think S3 and our partners to run industry leading services in Azure from NetApp, Barracuda, Citrix and more.
It’s built to protect your data
Microsoft has made an industry-leading commitment to the protection and privacy of your data, with 90+ compliance offerings forming the largest portfolio in the industry.
Azure was the first cloud provider recognised by the European Union’s data protection authorities for its commitment to rigorous EU privacy laws.
Microsoft was also the first major cloud provider to adopt the new international cloud privacy standard, ISO 27018.
Azure runs on a worldwide network of data centres, across 54 global regions and 140 countries – more countries and regions than any other cloud provider.
This fast-growing global footprint gives you lots of options for running applications and ensuring great customer performance wherever you do business.
It’s ready for any business
From small dev-test projects to global product launches, Azure is engineered to handle any workload. More than 95% of Fortune 500 companies rely on the Microsoft Cloud, which offers enterprise-grade SLAs on services, 24/7 tech support, and round-the-clock service health monitoring.
It’s economical and scalable
Azure’s Pay as you go services can quickly scale up or down to match demand, so you only pay for what you use. Per-minute billing and a commitment to match competitor prices for popular infrastructure services such as compute, storage and bandwidth means you’re always getting unbeatable price for performance.
It enables you to unlock insights
Azure’s predictive analytics services such as Machine Learning, Power BI and Stream Analytics are redefining business intelligence. Make smarter decisions, improve customer service and uncover new business possibilities from your structured, unstructured and streaming Internet of Things data.
