Placement of IT Resources in the Microsoft Azure Data Centre

With the purpose of optimising IT costs and providing a modern, safe and constantly updated IT infrastructure for their business, more and more companies are choosing to place their resources in the Microsoft Azure platform.

ELVA specialists can create and place the IT resources you need in the Microsoft Azure data centres.

  • Virtual machines
  • Databases
  • Connections with local (on-premises) systems, etc.

This service will allow you to increase your productivity, protect company data and reduce IT costs, paying only for what you really need.

Placement of Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Dynamics NAV in the Azure Environment

In order to ensure business process continuity, easy scalability and data safety, companies choose to place their Microsoft Dynamics systems in the cloud, the Azure platform.

ELVA experts offer two ways of placing your Dynamics resources in the Azure environment:

  • Dedicated placement – that is placement in a dedicated Azure environment where you are the owner and pay according to the “Pay as You Go” principle – paying only for what you use. The ELVA specialists implement monitoring and maintenance on conclusion of a separate agreement
  • Optimised (shared) placement – that is, placement in a shared Azure environment where you share the environment resources with other companies, paying a fixed monthly price for each user. In this case, system maintenance and incident prevention is included in the price, and the ELVA specialists will take care of resource monitoring and maintenance

By placing Microsoft Dynamics within the Azure platform, you will be able to ensure optimal and continuous operation of the application, as well as use IT resources with maximum efficiency, avoid overpaying and continual, wasted investment in local servers.
