Better on Azure The benefits of using Azure for Windows Server and SQL Server workloads

Enterprise customers are choosing Azure for their Windows Server and SQL Server workloads. In fact, in a 2019 Microsoft survey of 500 enterprise customers, when those customers were asked about their migration plans for Windows Server, they were 30 percent more likely to choose Azure.

There are four key reasons that make Azure the logical choice for Windows Server and SQL Server workloads:

  • Defense-in-depth security that is easy to implement and manage, including broad compliance capabilities.
  • Support for rapid innovation with fully managed services across apps, data, and infrastructure.
  • Unmatched hybrid solutions designed from the ground up to bridge on-premises and cloud seamlessly.
  • Compelling cost advantages for many customers, with several benefits available only on Azure.

In this whitepaper, we’ll examine each of these themes in greater depth to highlight why Azure makes sense for applications that rely on SQL Server or Windows Server.
