EXCLUSIVE BRIEFING: Everything you need to know to become an Azure cloud service provider
Mon, 6th Nov 2017
FYI, this story is more than a year old

Microsoft business development manager Jeanne Johnson is offering a one-on-one consultation with resellers exploring their options as cloud service providers.

One of the best gateways to providing cloud services is through disaster-recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS).

At some point in a business' lifespan, a natural disaster, a technical failure, or human error occurs, and the owner realises the need for the company to implement a disaster recovery strategy. Whatever the catalyst, CIOs realise that the cost of having an efficient disaster recovery solution in place is far less than the cost of downtime if a worst case scenario becomes reality.

Microsoft's Azure Site Recovery, available through Tech Data, is the most cost-effective disaster recovery solution on the market.

Tech Data lets resellers provide a great solution for small-to-medium enterprises looking to implement disaster-recovery-as-a-service while giving you quick and easy access to the Azure ecosystem.

Using the software-as-a-service model, you can shift your business from a transactional model to creating recurring revenue by providing subscription-based services.

If SaaS is something you've considered but you need a starting point, the no-strings-attached briefings with Johnson can give you some clarity.

They last between an hour to one and a half hours, covering:

  • A brief introduction of Microsoft's disaster recovery solutions
  • Services revenues that could be gained over a time period
  • Assistance and support available from partnering through Tech Data vs directly with Microsoft
