Pulse Technology is using Microsoft Azure to help eliminate outdated IT hardware in small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs). In so doing, Pulse helps clients make a transition to the cloud.
Pulse Technology has been transitioning companies with end-of-life Microsoft products into Microsoft Azure in order to keep them up-to-date with the contemporary business world. Microsoft’s most common suite of products, such as Windows 7, have reached expiration; those products and the servers they ride on are maturing into obsolence.
While many business owners are accustomed to purchasing on-premise servers, this way of storing data has become obsolete with the proliferation of the cloud. The tech world hasembraced the cloud and virtually all innovation from this point forward will incorporate the cloud in some way, meaning that on-premise servers are becoming outdated, leading to potential major security concerns for business owners. Additionally, without regular updates and software upgrades they are susceptible to slower speeds.
“Unfortunately, on-premise just doesn’t make fiscal sense, anymore,” said Chip Miceli, CEO of Pulse Technology. “Most businesses are expanding and need hardware that scales, including cloud servers that cater to a mobile workforce and data that can be confidently secured. Since our customers’ businesses can’t afford that level of inefficiency within their organizations, we’ve been transitioning our customers into Azure and will continue to do so, to keep them ahead of the curve andprofitable.”
Miceli continued, “At some point in the near future, owning on-site servers will be like having a coin-operated telephone in the lobby for your employees to use. How will a company’s top employees perform at peak levels with obsolete technology like that?”
