Microsoft Cloud

Your cloud. Your way. With Phoenix and Microsoft Azure

Your cloud roadmap is unique to your organisation and your business situation. Often, other cloud providers offer few built-in private or hybrid cloud options, so you have little flexibility to leverage or support your existing data centre investments or must find additional solutions to make a hybrid deployment successful, or manage separate public and private cloud environments.

Microsoft believes that your cloud solution shouldn’t leave you boxed in. It should enable you to leverage your existing IT investments and let you move to the cloud as your organisation’s needs evolve. That’s why Microsoft offers proven solutions in private, public and hybrid clouds, backed by decades of experience serving over one billion customers and 20 million businesses. That translates to consistent support and a consistent experience across the entire cloud landscape.

Microsoft Office 365

With Microsoft Office 365, you can simplify your IT with always-up-to-date Office tools and services. Get the latest version of Office integrated with business email, file sharing and web conferencing. Deliver best-in-class productivity tools with the IT control you need.

Microsoft Azure enables organisations to spin up, deploy, scale and manage applications, at pace, across a network of Microsoft data centres. Allowing the creation of applications using multiple languages, tools and frameworks.

The top three reasons why organisations move to Office 365:


There is a product bundle and payment plan to suite every organisation, enabling you to cost-effectively flex your Office 365 environment as your business needs change.




As Office 365 provides web-enabled access to email, documents, collaboration tools and much more, you and your business associates can work anytime you need, from anywhere you are – keeping you connected, in control and open for business whenever you need.



Since your files are stored online, you can share them with anyone, even co-author, in real time. No matter where you are.




Microsoft Office 365 for Business offers organisations unrivalled flexibility. With so much flexibility, however, it’s important that you only pay for the products that you need and only pay the minimum for them. That’s where Phoenix can help. Our Office 365 business licensing experts can help you understand the various Office 365 licensing options and guide you through the most cost-efficient way to licence Office 365 for your organisation AND ensure it remains secure and running at all times

Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure enables organisations to spin up, deploy, scale and manage applications, at pace, across a network of Microsoft data centres. Allowing the creation of applications using multiple languages, tools and frameworks.

IaaS + PaaS

Azure is ranked by Gartner as an industry leader for both infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS). Allowing a combination of unmanaged and managed services to build, deploy and control applications any way your organisation chooses for effective productivity.


Microsoft Azure is a proven hybrid cloud solution that gives organisations IT options without added complexity. Data storage, backup and recovery become more economical and efficient. Making it easier to build applications that span both on-premise and the cloud.


All Devices & OS

Azure supports all operating systems, languages, tools and frameworks – from SQL Server to Oracle, Windows to Linux, C# to Java. It puts the best of Windows and Linux ecosystems at your fingertips, so your organisation can build great applications and services that work with all devices.


Enterprise-Tested Platform

Microsoft Azure shares the same enterprise-tested platform used by Bing, Office 365 and Xbox. Azure offers an availability SLA of 99.95%, with the added benefit of 24/7 tech support.
