Azure Virtual Machines

Helping you make the best use of the Microsoft Cloud

Azure Virtual Machines

Azure Virtual Machines provide the foundation for your cloud infrastructure.

During the planning and architecture phase of developing your solution, igroup’s technical specialists will review your goals and the software that you are planning to use, and provision a range of specific VMs to provide the functionality that you need.

A variety of different Virtual Machines are available in Azure which are specified to be suited to different uses dependent on the function that they are to be used for.

Talk to an igroup specialist about how we can plan and deploy your infrastructure in Azure.

Choosing the correct Azure Virtual Machines will provide stability and is more cost effective.

When planning your cloud deployment, ensuring that the specification meets the requirements of your application is essential.  Balancing cost against performance is an important part of optimising your infrastructure to provide a good experience for users while also keeping the deployment within budget.

Did You Know

Prices for Azure Virtual Machines are dependent on their specification – different processors, memory and storage are available.

Microsoft offer a comprehensive range of Azure Virtual Machines that are designed for specific purposes within your infrastructure.

More powerful processors can be specified for intensive computing, while smaller machines can handle ancillary functions such as user management.

The correct machines for your needs will depend on multiple factors including the amount of data you want to store, the number of users who are active concurrently, and the requirements of your software. 

A simple application with few users may run on a single machine, but more normally different VMs would be specified within your infrastructure to handle different aspects of the work such as user management, front end web serving and database management.
