Resilient Cloud Services for high-performing digital workplaces.

A right-fit Cloud strategy is a priority for every Australian business relying on fast, consistent, and secure access to thrive, innovate, and grow.

Microsoft Azure’s infrastructure reflects a global focus on digital transformation and business continuity. The Azure Public Cloud has more than 100 interconnected data centres worldwide, more than AWS and Google combined.

As remote and “work from anywhere” models become the new standard, how you support high-performing digital workplaces changes. Business demands a resilient IT architecture that guarantees secure access to your data anywhere, anytime, on any device. 

Prepare for anything, from anywhere with Azure's Cloud computing technology.

Post-COVID, all Australian businesses need to definitively answer questions like, “How can we be better for our customers? How can we use technology to make our customers’ lives easier? How can we gain a competitive advantage through technologies that improve customer-centricity?”

Cloud transformation with CBS Australia's Azure Cloud Services makes it possible to meet your customers and internal users' ever-changing needs—and optimises cloud cost—while staying ahead of your competition through innovation and the rapid delivery of new features and products.

How do I determine what the right Cloud strategy is for my business?

Cloud-based solutions are critical to meet the demands of modern business models in Australia. However, determining the right Cloud strategy for your business can be a complex process. First, you must identify and assess the unique demands of your industry, organisation and customers to decide which Cloud platform is best suited. Factors such as scalability, cost savings, security, compliance, regulation, and performance will need to be taken into account when selecting a Cloud strategy. Cloud technology can provide powerful advantages, but only when tailored to deliver on corporate objectives. It's important to work with a partner that has deep expertise in both technology and industry so they can advise on the best approach for your organisation.

Frequently asked questions

Why choose Microsoft Azure over AWS or Google?

Microsoft Azure is a Public Cloud platform that offers enterprise-grade Hybrid Cloud solutions, advanced analytics, and the security and scalability necessary to power enterprise applications. Microsoft Azure boosts productivity with pre-defined architectures and services such as container orchestration, big data analytics, and various web application frameworks. In comparison to AWS and Google, users are provided with a comprehensive set of Cloud tools to build, deploy and manage cutting edge applications quickly and reliably. Furthermore, its flexibility allows for an easy transition from on-premises workloads to Cloud infrastructure faster than ever before. With Microsoft Azure's cost effectiveness, high availability across multiple geographical regions, responsive customer service and reliable performance, users can rest assured that their investments are secure.

Are there any challenges with the Public Cloud?

One of the primary challenges of the Public Cloud lies in its underlying technology. Public Cloud environments can be complex, difficult to navigate and often lack visibility compared to traditional IT infrastructures. Developing secure implementations that account for compliance, scalability, market needs and customer demands can be a difficult task due to the constantly changing landscape of Public Cloud. In some cases businesses may also require more control over their data than what can be provided by Public Cloud providers due to heightened security or privacy concerns. Ultimately, navigating Public Cloud challenges requires careful analysis of both business and technical considerations in order to create an environment that meets an organisation's individual requirements.

Difference between Public and Private Cloud

Public Cloud is a computing model in which services such as servers, storage, and applications are hosted on shared public resources. Public Cloud offers users access to virtualized IT infrastructure held on remote vendors' IT platforms. Unlike Public Cloud, Private Cloud is a more exclusive model of computing; it requires dedicated physical resources that are kept within an organisation’s data centre. Private Cloud offers greater cost savings and security than Public Cloud but at the expense of scalability, agility and speed of deployment. Public and Private Clouds have increasingly become integral parts of many organisations' strategies for achieving business objectives by making use of its associated benefits.

What is Azure Cloud and how it works?

Azure cloud is a comprehensive platform from Microsoft that offers a wide range of cloud services and resources, enabling businesses to deploy, manage, and scale applications and data efficiently. It operates through cloud computing, which involves accessing and managing resources over the internet. Azure provides services such as virtual machines, access management, and hybrid cloud solutions, empowering organisations to leverage cloud scale and intelligence for improved operations and innovation. With features like Azure Virtual Desktop and an array of services, it facilitates seamless cloud adoption and transformation.
