Azure Consulting Services
NewOrbit has been developing software on Azure since 2011 and was recognised as a Microsoft Cloud Gold Partner in 2016.
As an Azure partner, we specialise in helping other companies move their software to the cloud. We help both software companies and companies who have had bespoke software developed for them.
Choose the best from Azure
Azure is a fantastic platform for developing and running software, but it can be overwhelming when first getting started; it is so much more than just hosting. While you can certainly just spin up some virtual machines, it is rarely the best or most cost-effective way to host your software.
The wide set of choices can be daunting; there at least six different ways just to host a website, not to mention the alleged 104 different messaging options. They all have a good reason to exist, but it can be hard to identify which one is right for you.
We help organisations choose the best options for them, based on our experience of working with a wide range of setups.
Migrating software to Azure
It’s usually quite easy to move existing apps to virtual machines on Azure - but that is usually not the best choice. For example, you are often better off using Web Apps instead of IIS on a VM, or SQL Azure instead of running your own SQL Server.
However, these “Platform-as-a-Service” (PaaS) options also come with unique constraints, such as the performance boundaries on SQL Azure, or the security and file sharing constraints on Web Apps.
We use our extensive experience combined with a standardised process to identify the best options for your software and to identify the potential pain-points early so we can plan how to overcome them over time.
