Easily access cloud resources on demand
Health organizations retain control of their sensitive data at all times and for applications that require geographic scale in a snap, infrastructure that needs to scale at a moment’s notice, or massive storage at a reduced cost, the Microsoft cloud platform lets you move datacenter resources easily to accommodate spikes in IT usage.
Help reduce medical-image storage costs
Reduce storage costs by 60% to 80%, versus traditional storage methods using StorSimple, an on-premises tiered storage appliance that delivers high-performance storage, live archiving, and cloud data protection.
Manage corporate identities in a more transparent way
Identities are independent of whether your medical applications are running on a local server or in the public cloud.
Make it easier for IT to deliver valuable services to your health professionals
By pooling resources in the datacenter, and then extending into the cloud, you get a flexible and resilient platform to support virtually any workload.
Help improve IT efficiency
Use a single management infrastructure with robust security capabilities for all your health professionals’ devices, including desktop PCs, Windows tablets, Windows Phone, Android smartphones, iPads, and iPhones.
With a consistent deployment experience on-premises or in a public cloud, you can take advantage of a hybrid cloud model while leveraging existing IT skills.
Reduce the risk of losing data in case of a disaster
There is no longer the need to setup your own fully-duplicated disaster recovery site. Healthcare customers are increasingly relying on Microsoft Azure as a safe place to store virtual machines, applications and data.
