"Moving our website infrastructure to the cloud provides the scalability and availability we need to ensure more than one million citizens have continuous access to critical information from all county departments, while also reducing operating costs."
"As public clouds mature, they become very cost-effective options for us. They give us tremendous scalability and flexibility advantages. We don’t have to keep physical infrastructure on hand for temporary workloads such as testing. Running a server on-premises might cost us $60 a month, while running an Azure Virtual Machine might cost us just $20 a month."

"We have an agency that needed to spin up hundreds of servers for a few days and then tear them down. Azure was a perfect solution for that. It saves us money, and we can automate almost the whole process. So as state agencies start looking at either new applications or refreshing existing software, we're going to see if we can do it in the cloud."
