Making the most of Azure

With the best will in the world, businesses of any size, implementing or managing their cloud deployment are unlikely to have enough in-house experience or time to tackle all aspects of Azure – minimise costs and maximise efficiency.

Did you know?

  • UK MS Data Centres can be approximately 30% more expensive than other European MS Data Centres. We monitor all Azure changes enabling us to offer the best service possible.
  • Azure pricing can change every month which does affect your monthly billing.  By choosing Azure with igroup, your pricing is caped for the duration of your 1, 2 or 3-year contract, eliminating spikes in your billing.
  • When configuring Azure, there are multiple Series and configurations to choose from, in the same way, you’d configure a car – make of car, model, engine, fuel, colour, and every trim and feature you can think of. Every choice impacts your monthly cost and end performance.
