Reduce Data Storage and Maintenance Costs Using Azure Cloud
Where Should I Store Data?
On-premise data centres result in ongoing costs and maintenance that take away from business innovation. Many businesses are unaware that data can be stored off-site and on cloud platforms that are fully secure, more convenient and cost effective. Cloud storage services such as Azure Cloud provide a trustworthy platform to house and grow data long-term.
What Are the Benefits of Azure Cloud?
Azure Cloud Services offer many advantages for data storage, such as:
- Security — provides stronger security than on-premise data centres

Azure Cloud Services is used by 70% of organizations worldwide that have decided to migrate their data to the cloud. Vancouver based company iQmetrix partnered with Invero to plan their data migration to Azure Cloud and modernize their workflows. They were able to move 600 virtual machines, stored on 3 physical data centres, to the cloud and develop effective workflows for long-term success.
“We started our Cloud migration journey with Invero; we could not have asked for a better partner; their hands-on approach, the way they listened and adapted to our needs were the key points to our success,” stated an iQmetrix Director.
