Microsoft Azure

Put the power of everything to work in your business.

Microsoft Azure is the flexible cloud computing platform that helps transform your business. Turn business ideas into reality, analyse business performance, or scale your infrastructure to meet immediate needs.

The SMS advantage

We're Microsoft experts, with a Gold Partner certification to demonstrate it, and offer customers extra value services beyond what Microsoft provide direct.

Managed Azure activation

If you already know exactly what you want from your Azure environment we'll create your Azure environment to your exact specifications and make sure everything is just as you want it. Pricing is the same as direct from Microsoft but with the advantage of our experts setting up and checking the environment is as specified.

Don't know what Azure resources you'll need? Take a look at our Azure Planner option.

Azure Planner

Before switching existing infrastructure to Microsoft Azure we can gather data on your current systems, such as OS, software versions, bandwidth available, and more to build a picture of your current systems and identify potential pain-points. Available for a one-off fee, Azure Planner means your switch to the cloud will match your resource needs.

SMS gave us the ability to run our email system exactly as we did when when we hosted our own Exchange server but with the added benefit of removing the single point of failure which our own system had.

Gary Wand   |   Pygott and Crone

No question to small, no query too dumb for the SMS support team, who invariably deal with things very quickly and competently, with patience and good will. We continue to recommend SMS to all who want a first-rate email service. Simply the best!

I can thoroughly recommend SMS. They have always provided a top service with fast support when needed.

Recently they have overseen a migration to Exchange 2016 which completed very smoothly, probably down to their extensive planning and preparation.

Simon Gipson   |   Spire Payments Limited

The support is second to none. SMS provide a very good package and if we were to setup again from scratch then SMS would be at the top of the list.
