"Using Azure is cheaper than our previous backup solution—one quarter the cost. The savings increase with every gigabyte of data we add."

Chris Palmer, Solutions Architect, PCL Construction

Increase capacity, reduce costs

Keep pace with the exponential growth of your enterprise data whilst lowering deployment and management costs. With a low-cost, massively scalable, tiered backup storage solution in the cloud, you’ll reduce forecasting risks whilst transforming capital expenditure commitments to a pay-as-you-go cloud model.

"Our IT staff no longer has to handle tapes daily, coordinate with the external storage company, and pay for tape equipment maintenance, all of which equates to a savings of €30,000 to €40,000 [US$33,000 to US$45,000] annually."
