Organisations big and small trust Azure
Adrian James, Head of Automated Driving Safety, AUDI AG
"Our global data acquisition campaign is expensive and time consuming. The collected data must be made available to the developers quickly and safely, while taking into consideration all of the relevant data protection requirements."
Sarah Haywood, Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Technology, Carlsberg Group
"We're seeing a huge benefit in terms of scalability. We build out resources in the cloud as we need them, in a way that would have been impossible in a physical datacenter. We also trust in the security of Azure, which is important for any business site."
Dugan Sheehan, Principal Engineer, Microsoft Cloud Team, Rackspace
"Previously, we could only establish global alerting thresholds that would apply to all our customers. When we moved to Azure Monitor, we gained the ability to set thresholds on a per-customer or a per-alert basis."
Sascha Wenninger, Technology Lead for the 4S program, Orica
"We use Azure services for additional protection…. With Azure Active Directory and Multi-Factor Authentication, we know that people are who they say they are."
