Choose how you deploy Azure—connecting cloud and on-premises with hybrid cloud capabilities and using open source technologies—for maximum portability and value from your existing investments.
Achieve economies of scale – increase volume output or productivity with fewer people. Your cost per unit, project or product plummets.
Reduce spending on technology infrastructure. Maintain easy access to your information with minimal upfront spending. Pay as you go (weekly, quarterly or yearly), based on demand.
Globalize your workforce on the cheap. People worldwide can access the cloud, provided they have an Internet connection.
Streamline processes. Get more work done in less time with less people.

Improve accessibility. You have access anytime, anywhere, making your life so much easier!
Monitor projects more effectively. Stay within budget and ahead of completion cycle times.
Less personnel training is needed. It takes fewer people to do more work on a cloud, with a minimal learning curve on hardware and software issues.
Minimize licensing new software. Stretch and grow without the need to buy expensive software licenses or programs.
Improve flexibility. You can change direction without serious “people” or “financial” issues at stake.
To stay competitive, businesses must innovate and grow while improving time to market, increasing ROI and decreasing TCO. One of the biggest challenges in achieving these goals is growing complexity in the data center. In order to succeed in the new technology landscape, IT must embrace simplicity. Federating public and private cloud resources allows organizations to streamline IT services and run Microsoft workloads in the most optimized and appropriate environments.
Federation contributes to IT simplicity by improving infrastructure flexibility, scalability and agility by allowing you to scale to the public cloud and use only the resources you need when you need them. This model allows IT to take advantage of expanded storage, backup and recovery strategies with increased efficiencies and reduced costs.
However, federating hybrid clouds on Microsoft Azure and Cloud Platform has functional and technical pitfalls worth considering:
No matter the stage where you are in your Enterprise cloud journey, netEDGE Technologies can help alleviate some of the constraints of federation with Azure Active Directory, on-premises directory solutions and various third-party application providers, enabling your business to efficiently deliver IT services without the burden of managing additional independent directory service solutions.
netEDGE simplifies hybrid cloud connectivity with next-generation technology and direct connectivity to Azure over Equinix Cloud Exchange™ and Microsoft ExpressRoute. We can help you achieve a unified management approach to both private and public cloud infrastructure, a strategy that is a keystone of increased agility, decreased time to market and improved alignment of IT resources to focus on more valuable tasks.
