It’s a common pressure point for many businesses. They evolve from owning, managing, and maintaining a set of servers, then build out and manage small on-premise data centers to run its workloads. Next, to support its business growth, it moves and expand its capabilities using a colocation environment. Now, managed service providers such as Atmosera are focused on helping its customers address their digital transformation needs for a modern infrastructure with geo-distribution, dynamic scaling, and better reliability by moving their workloads to Microsoft Azure.
