It’s time to move to the cloud. Period. End of discussion.  Mic Drop.  

Every day we hear more stories about network intrusions, hacking, ransomware attacks, and lost data. Companies who still have the servers on-premise – physical boxes onsite – are more at risk than those who have servers in the cloud. On-Premise servers require constant maintenance and should require failover hardware. The Total Cost of Ownership for physical servers far exceeds the cost of servers in the cloud.

Microsoft has spent billions of dollars building the infrastructure, security systems, and expertise to provide companies with a safe and stable environment for all network and application functions. Being in the cloud provides companies with more options. They can elect to simple-rent space on dedicated servers and keep control of all updates and patches. Companies with internal IT departments may take this option.  Companies can also elect to utilize Azure servers and let Microsoft take care of all OS upgrades, updates, and security patches. This option allows companies to move IT resources dedicated to server maintenance into other more beneficial areas.

Innovia has been an active user of Azure for many years. We have helped to move many of our customers to the cloud. Typically, we start by moving email servers and office applications into the cloud. Once a level of comfort is established, we begin to help move the rest of a customers’ applications and servers. We know the benefit of not having the hardware to maintain.

It's easy to start this process. Simply reach out to your customer engagement specialist and they can help you get started. The future is now. The time is past to make this move. Let Innovia help you with this digital transformation.
