Microsoft Azure – Swiss-sourced security.

IT departments are up against an onslaught of challenges. Big data, artificial intelligence, IoT, ongoing digital transformation and an exploding demand for storage capacity are just some of the issues they face. At the same time, companies need to maintain their financial flexibility and cut spending on IT infrastructure.


In their endeavour to square the circle, many companies are turning to the cloud, with some pursuing a hybrid approach, while others choose to do away with their own data centre altogether. And with fully-fledged service offerings such as Office 365, the cloud has much to offer.

With Microsoft Azure, Bechtle offers customers one of the world’s biggest and most popular cloud computing platforms. This highly scalable cloud service provides maximum flexibility when deploying IT infrastructures and services. What’s more, it enables companies to add services on demand, while paying only for what they actually use.

Best of all, the 2019 opening of two Azure data centres in Switzerland extends the benefits of cloud computing to businesses subject to stringent compliance policies. And not just Azure, but also Office 365 and Dynamics 365 now also have an official residence in Switzerland.

Key benefits of Microsoft Azure:
  • Use Azure as an on-premise deployment
  • Reduce infrastructure and operating costs
  • Access storage, network and CPU resources on demand
  • Easily move SQL workloads to the cloud
  • Protect identities in hybrid scenarios
  • Leverage built-in security and management features
  • Shed on-premise infrastructure with Azure IaaS
  • Choose from numerous additional applications on Azure Marketplace
  • And much more

Bechtle offers the following Microsoft Azure services:

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) – Your data centre in the cloud.

The perfect solution for customers who want to give their undivided attention to their business. With IaaS, you can offload your entire infrastructure to the cloud and tap into off-site resources as and when you need them.

Backup as a Service (BaaS) – Secure and always available.

BaaS and hybrid storage solutions enable disaster recovery of your digital assets in no time. Cloud backups also offer highly attractive storage tiering and cost models. Plus, backup files can be replicated across multiple storage tiers and restored quickly and easily if worst comes to worst.

Artificial intelligence (AI) for insight discovery.

We were able to use artificial intelligence to help a customer extract a vast trove of data from old contracts and documents, making it readily accessible. While many of these files had been digitalised over the years, employees had been struggling to get to the information they contain. Thanks to AI-driven OCR and classification, our customer is now able to turn this existing data into a real asset for their business.

Stepping into the cloud the smart way.

To help our customers ensure the best cloud experience from the start, we have devised a three-stage process that can be applied to any customer scenario and workload. No matter where they are in their cloud journey, this method starts up right where they left off.

1. Strategy and discovery.

We begin with a Cloud Discovery workshop where we present and discuss a wide range of potential scenarios, including specific and far-reaching AI solutions. We identify the ones that are relevant for your organisation and work together to develop your personal cloud roadmap.




2. Implementation and migration.

We offer various, ready-made packages to help you benefit from your first cloud solution quickly, such as our Step Into the Cloud starter kit. This is complemented by workload-specific services such as an accelerated migration of Windows and SQL servers, implementation of a backup-to-the-cloud solution, data estate modernisation, etc. Whatever workload you wish to migrate to the cloud, Bechtle is here to help you every step of the way.

3. Operation.

Bechtle Managed Services is able to offer a full range of services, from cost management and other governance services to outsourced operations such as Managed IaaS and Managed Backup & Disaster Recovery.
