Spend less on operations. And more on innovations.
If you're looking for a way to reduce operational spending - without limiting your business's ability to turn out powerful applications and services - the Windows Azure™ platform is the way to go.
You'll reduce up-front technology purchases AND give your developers a familiar environment to work in, with the skills and tools they already know.
You only pay for what you use. Capacity can be reduced as needed to lower costs, or increased to meet demand. You'll meet customer and business needs, without any servers gathering dust.
The Windows Azure platform is a platform as a service. It comes pre-configured, and Microsoft handles the management.
- You won't have to invest the money, time and effort in procuring and configuring on-premises infrastructure.
- There's no need for you to implement fail-over or redundancy systems.
- It's fully configured and managed, freeing your resources from building and managing Virtual Machines or patching the OS.
- It's completely integrated with Visual Studio and the .NET framework, so there's no need to re-train your development team or purchase new software tools. It also works with Eclipse, Java, PHP and Ruby.
Applications "built for Azure" may be hosted on a client's Azure services account, or provided by Castle Rock Innovations as a bundled package including both the application and hosting services.
Self-Managing, Scalable, Business-Ready
