Windows Azure is a powerful on demand cloud computing service offering computer power, data storage, networking and databases on demand in datacentres based all over the globe. The low cost and rapid deployment options of Windows Azure has drawn many customers worldwide to start using Windows Azure in place of traditional server network infrastructure and the costs and business issues such as maintenance and backups that they present. Windows Azure can be used for many purposes from providing an on demand software test and development environment to IT staff, to backup and disaster recovery (ensuring georedundancy of data), to running production applications and mobile services for end users. Many well-known Public Sector and Commercial organisations have taken advantage of the scale and cost savings offered by Windows Azure.
Business Mechanix are experts at implementing and integrating solutions using Microsoft’s Windows Azure Cloud. For example Business Mechanix created an alumni portal (Wintec Circle) for the Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec) which used Windows Azure to join together nine different Clouds based on several continents. Business Mechanix was recognised by Microsoft at the 2012 Global Partner Awards for this solution as a finalist for the Public Sector Education Award. Business Mechanix have also developed and hosted a national (New Zealand) vending distribution website for Coca Cola Amatil in Windows Azure. Lastly Business Mechanix developed a mobile relationship management application for the Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec) which is hosted in Windows Azure.
