Customer Managed Azure
Customer Managed Azure is the fast, fuss-free way of setting up subscriptions and managing your own Azure environments, with the reassurance of Redcentric support and additional Cloud services on tap.
It’s no surprise that we are seeing increasing take up of the class-leading Microsoft Azure platform. Hybrid cloud is fast becoming the de facto enterprise IT model, with users managing workloads between on-premises, private and public clouds.
To give customers maximum choice, ease of purchase and flexibility, we have introduced our Customer Managed Azure to complement our Managed Azure Service. Where use cases or in-house resources dictate, an unmanaged offering – where we set up subscriptions, provide consumption billing and support – can be the preferred option; particularly as extra technical services or Cloud solutions can be dialled up on demand.
This way, clients can consolidate all their Azure subscriptions within a single Cloud Solution Provider (CSP); and also leverage Redcentric’s security-focused, standards-driven, customer-centric approach to ensure a solid, trusted end-to-end partnership.
Example use cases:
- Development and testing, running alongside a Managed Azure service for the production system
- DevOps within an ISV, where there are the skills to run both development and production environments themselves
- Using Azure Site Recovery (ASR) for disaster recovery around on-premises workloads
- Backing up of workloads
- Telemetry and IOT analytics, storing and interrogating large data sets
