Turn your Ideas into Solutions

Estimates project that 60% of computing will be in public clouds by 2025, so understanding your cloud options is a necessity.  Business drivers for cloud adoption include: 

  • Data center contract expiration
  • Software end of support
  • Scalable capacity needs
  • Compliance 
  • Security threats 
  • Software and hardware refresh
  • Application innovation 
  • And more 

We provide guidance on Azure best practices and present a complete program that fits your needs. Microsoft Azure helps customers make technology a business advantage by getting the most out of their IT investments, being prepared for the unexpected, getting scalable storage and enabling remote access while protecting business data.

Our Microsoft Azure Cloud Foundation uses Microsoft validated reference architectures and blue-prints.  Our experts organize workshops to define your standards for subscriptions, rights management, naming conventions, network connectivity, and security and management services.  We deliver three foundational components to move you towards an integrated IT strategy and portfolio that includes Microsoft Azure.


The Resource Governance Workshop achieves the following:

  • Determinesubscription structure 
  • Identifies security requirements 
  • Creates a cost management framework 
  • Designs a virtual network structure 


During the Configurations stage, a virtual network is connected to an on-premises data center. 


In the Deployment stage, an Active Directory domain controller deploys Azure Windows virtual machine, configures Active Directory and joins the on-premises domain.

Each Azure deployment is secure, compliant and monitored.  AMTRA has dashboards that provide complete transparency into consumption costs. This data is used to continuously optimize your environment, and ultimately lower your costs, increase time to market and decrease management overhead.


While the fundamental principles that define, ‘what is a cloud’ are the same across cloud providers, not all clouds are the same.  Your business requirements, coupled with the needs of your workload make the choice of vendor, for some, very clear. But with savvy marketing and creative sales tactics, often this clarity starts to become... cloudy.  To help restore clarity, we developed a comparison guide that looks at Azure, AWS and Google cloud solutions.  We have collected information from the platforms, 3rd Party analysts, industry / client feedback and distilled it all in one easy to reference guide.  Download it today.
