Public Cloud

Ascendra is one of the few Microsoft Partners to offer design, implementation, and support services for both Private Cloud, including the System Center suite of products and Public Cloud, including the Office 365 and Azure products. This allows customers to choose from the breadth of Microsoft “cloud’ technologies to produce cost savings and support customer missions and applications.

Microsoft Public Cloud offerings enable Ascendra's customers to realize the primary tenants of cloud computing:

Pooled Resources - Compute, storage, and networking are pooled to dynamically provision and scale applications
Self-service - Deliver applications as services users can provision, configure, and manage through an interactive portal
Elastic - Resources can quickly be expanded (scaled up) or contracted (scaled down) to meet business requirements
Usage-based - Usage is metered so organizations pay for only the resources that are actually consumed

• Lync Online for instant messaging, presence, and peer to peer voice and video conferencing
