Cloud Servers from First Solution

…helping realise your desired business outcomes.

Choose your language, workload, operating system.

With support for Linux, Windows Server, SQL Server, Oracle, IBM and SAP, Azure Virtual Machines gives you the flexibility of virtualisation for a wide range of computing solutions – development and testing, running applications and extending your data centre. It’s the freedom of open-source software configured the way you need it. It’s as if it were another rack in your data centre, giving you the power to deploy an application in seconds instead of weeks.

Get more choice.

It’s all about choice for your virtual machines. Choose Linux or Windows. Choose to be on-premises, in the cloud or both. Choose your own virtual machine image or download a certified pre-configured image in the Azure Marketplace. With Virtual Machines, you’re in control.

Scale to what you need.

Combine the performance of a supercomputer with the scalability of the cloud. Scale from one to thousands of virtual machine instances. With the growing number of regional Azure data centres, easily scale globally so that you’re closer to your customers.

Reduce costs.

Keep your budget in check with low-cost, per-minute billing. You only pay for the compute time you use.

Increase security.

Encrypt sensitive data, protect virtual machines from viruses and malware, secure network traffic and meet regulatory and compliance requirements.

Explore the power of a hybrid cloud.

Create virtual machines for on-premises servers, or scale up to the cloud to help balance resources and increase your application’s availability. Virtual Machines can integrate Azure cloud capacity into your data centre for global load balancing when you need it, or access true, on-demand high-performance computing capabilities in the cloud.

Secure and well managed cloud servers.

Take simple steps to keep your Azure environment secure and well managed. Secure your virtual machines, apps and workloads with Azure Security Center. Protect your data against ransomware and human errors with Azure Backup. Monitor your cloud health and performance with Azure monitoring services, such as Azure Log Analytics and Azure Application Insights.

Our Approach.

We manage the complete technology stack so that you can focus on delighting your customers.

We provide all of our services with a single monthly bill, whilst taking complete responsibility to manage the complexity of your IT estate.
