*Reference: The Flexera 2022 State of the Cloud Report and Cast AI State of Kubernetes Report

13% Organisations overspend their cloud budgets by an average of 13%
32% Almost 32% of total cloud spend is wasted (which has both a financial & environmental impact)
37% On average, 37% of compute capacity is unused
51% 51% of organisations say the primary reason for cloud wastage is through a lack of visibility into cloud usage and efficiency

Our Azure Infrastructure solutions

Microsoft Azure Solutions can provide you with the tools and resources you need to take your business to the next level. With our state-of-the-art cloud platform, you can streamline your operations, improve efficiency, and scale your applications with ease. From data storage and analytics to artificial intelligence and machine learning, our Microsoft Azure Solutions offer a comprehensive suite of services that can empower your business and drive innovation.

Cost optimisation
Eliminate wastage, right-size your environment and take advantage of the comprehensive cost management features within Microsoft Azure.

Reduce your initial investment, and save up to 72% on compute costs compared to pay-as-you-go, by committing to a fixed term with Reserved Instances, combined with an Azure Savings Plan for the less-predictable workloads. Our regular optimisation reviews and fine-tuning of reservations, intermittent workloads and VM rightsizing will ensure that your tenancy remains aligned with maximised benefits.

Using Microsoft’s automation plane, Core has developed automated cost management capabilities that are designed to proactively identify upward trends or anomalies across your individual subscriptions and service families, before the costs have been realised. Our cloud experts will respond with in-depth analysis and work with you to address issues, providing informed recommendations to minimise unnecessary expenditure.

IaaS and PaaS
Operate seamlessly across your on-premise datacentre and the cloud with Microsoft Azure servers. With end-to-end hybrid infrastructure and consistent security, identity and management features, Azure servers provide a secure pathway to the cloud from a legacy hardware environment.

Azure servers provide an opportunity for your business to transition to the cloud, whilst Core’s team of Microsoft specialists have the capability to turn that opportunity into success. Ensure optimal availability and smooth running of your Windows and Linux server estate with a fully-managed IaaS support model including patch management, backup and disaster recovery, antivirus and around the clock monitoring to detect and respond to issues as they develop.

Embrace PaaS offerings such as serverless databases and websites, improve availability and take advantage of Microsoft’s guaranteed service level agreement of 99.99% or more as you reduce dependencies on the operating system and eradicate the need for costly Windows licensing.

Backup and recovery
Schedule regular application-consistent backups with Azure VM Backup and benefit from readily accessible recovery points providing individual file or full system restores with a retention policy customised to your workload and compliance requirements.

Protect your workloads from regional disaster with Azure Site Recovery, monitored and fine-tuned by our Microsoft Azure experts to minimise your Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) for critical systems. Azure’s reporting and alerting functions provided by Azure Backup Centre and Azure Monitor allow Core’s engineering team to quickly address any failures and maintain 100% compliance for backup and disaster recovery, keeping you best prepared for any eventuality.

Help secure your hosted Windows Server workloads with multi-layered, built-in security.

Maintain your security posture with native controls, leveraging the Defender for Cloud protection suite to routinely evaluate your IT against industry and regulatory standards as well as Microsoft’s own best-practice framework, enforcing these standards via Azure Policy. In addition, detect and respond to evolving threats at scale with Microsoft cloud intelligent solutions.

Protect your users and your data at the very edge with Azure’s identity and access management solutions. Defend against malicious login attempts and safeguard credentials with risk-based access controls, identity protection tools and strong authentication options, all without disrupting your users’ productivity.

With Azure IDAM features, it no longer matters if your users are based on-site or work from home. Provide them with seamless access to all their apps and data so that they can stay productive from anywhere. Automate workflows for user lifecycle and provisioning, saving time and resources with self-service management.

Azure identity and access management features are key elements of transitioning to the cloud, simplifying the move from physical to virtual servers, and then enabling the move to a modern workplace and hybrid working.

Azure networking provides the scale, performance, high availability, and security your business needs to meet the high demands of today’s workforce. By delivering a consistent, low-latency experience to users through services that bridge on-premises, multi-cloud, and edge devices seamlessly.

Microsoft Azure networking allows you to focus on delivering your applications, knowing that however busy your network gets, you have the infrastructure to handle it.

Azure networking is the fabric on which cloud services can be delivered. Core’s Microsoft specialists have the skills to make that happen. As a Microsoft Partner with more than three decades of delivering Microsoft solutions, our team has the experience and expertise to deliver your cloud infrastructure.

Application Hosting
Azure application hosting provides a flexible and unified approach to building and managing apps across Azure cloud servers and on-premises hardware. Securely run your apps in your Azure Virtual Network at large scale with enhanced privacy, power, and performance using an App Service Environment.

Microsoft Azure provides a fully managed platform to perform OS patching, capacity provisioning, servers, and load balancing. Services can be configured from the CLI or the Azure portal, which even offer prebuilt templates to achieve one-click deployment.
