Azure - the cloud for all Microsoft-based workloads

Microsoft Azure (MS) provides globally available public cloud services and covers more than 50 regions as one of the leading cloud providers. Their portfolio covers a range of more than 100 available end-to-end services: from analysis tools to IoT solutions and web apps. However, the handling of the services is as complex as the possibilities are extensive. The Azure portfolio and the high pace of innovation require agile IT processes and the appropriate expertise to understand, combine and implement configuration elements. As a Microsoft Global Gold Partner, T-Systems offers a wide range of managed services to provide companies with the best possible configuration and management support.

2,000 Microsoft-certified specialists

More than 1,500 transformation specialists and 2,000 Microsoft-certified experts possess the necessary know-how to bring all elements together. They provide in-depth advice when it comes to building a secure architecture and selecting the right services and tools. Comprehensive billing, support, management and networking services are also available. The Azure Cloud is particularly useful for the migration of Microsoft-based workloads or the addition of cloud components for existing local MS applications - the licenses already purchased for the Windows and Office environments are retained.

Traditional or agile: Azure in Mode 1 and Mode 2 operation

T-Systems offers traditional ITIL-based services and, as one of eight providers worldwide, agile services for the Azure Cloud. The latter includes security services such as the Managed Portal, Azure Cost Control and Monitoring.

Modular design – needs-based and expandable

The Managed Cloud Services (MCS) for Azure are also available in two modules: The basic module "MCS Azure – Foundation" manages all core resources, such as virtual networks, routing, peering, KeyVault, etc. It also integrates the setup of access rights for all Azure services, the regular comparison of the provided resources with the defined guidelines, cost reporting and monitoring. The "MCS Azure - Advanced" module extends these basic services to include virtual machines (VM) and operating system instances (OS). T-Systems also manages these – including regular quality and security updates according to the specifications published by Microsoft or the respective Linux distributor. All resources can be flexibly booked and unbooked in Self-Service.

Well-advised from the start

No matter which variant is chosen: At the beginning of each project, T-Systems experts check the planned or existing use of Azure and familiarize themselves with the existing operating procedures. This information is used to carry out a targeted consultation, individually prepare an offer and carefully plan the transformation and transition of selected Azure services – upon request, also as part of a joint workshop as well as an included proof of concept.

The Hybrid Azure Cloud

As a Tier 1 CSP partner as part of the Microsoft Cloud Solution Partner Program, T-Systems also offers managed services for Azure Stack. For companies, this means they can easily add highly secure, dedicated cloud infrastructures to the public cloud. T-Systems ensures integration and consistency. This creates a hybrid environment that covers all requirements – agile development, IoT and analytics solutions as well as strict compliance requirements – all from a single source.
