Microsoft Azure offers the following benefits when partners running VMWare within their environment choose to migrate or extend into Azure:
- Partners save on additional hypervisor cost – in this case the additional VMware License cost.
- Partners no longer need to refresh their Hardware (Compute, Storage and Network stack) every couple of years.
- Partners no longer need to leverage a third-party Data centre for hosting their cloud platform.
- Azure is a fully managed platform, this means partners no longer need to spend time patching their Infrastructure, which also reduces Operations costs.
- Azure offers a secure, scalable and a reliable Multi-tenanted platform available on a Pay as you Go Model.
- Partners can leverage the CSP program to license their Microsoft Azure tenancy which saves admin time spent on reporting licenses procured through multiple vendor programs.
- Partners can leverage multiple solutions such as Azure Backups, Azure Site Recovery, Azure Security Center and manage multiple solutions from a single dashboard.
