As enterprise adoption of cloud- and hybrid-cloud computing and storage solutions continues to accelerate, Microsoft Azure has emerged as one of the premier options for organizations looking for a full-featured cloud services foundation.
Azure is one of the most powerful and efficient options for managing a cloud-centric enterprise computing approach. However, it still requires some specialized management skills—particularly when dealing with large-scale migrations of essential business functions.
Therefore, Microsoft established a network of knowledgeable service organizations with proven capabilities for safely, securely, and efficiently using Microsoft Azure to move client operations to the cloud
Zen3 works as a global Microsoft Azure partner, offering consulting and support through planning, migration, and ongoing management stages of Azure implementations.

THE POWER OF AZURE
Azure is Microsoft’s public cloud platform. It enables rapid and highly scalable building, deployment, and management of diverse servers, services, and applications hosted across a global network of data centers. From optimizing fundamental tools like database for the cloud context to supporting cutting-edge applications like machine learning, Azure can do it all.
Enterprises using Azure can also develop their own applications using multiple industry-leading languages, tools, and frameworks—all integrated with CI/CD functionality.
Azure allows technology pros to optimize CAPEX while minimizing the operational risks associated with prototypical enterprise development processes. By avoiding extraneous upfront investments (due to its hyper-flexible and near instantaneous scaling) Azure can dramatically lower costs and increase budgetary agility going forward. Meanwhile, innovative new projects can be planned without the fear of running into capacity roadblocks.
AZURE MIGRATION SPECIALISTS
While we take on a wide variety of Azure-related workflows for our clients, migrations of essential business services and storage to Azure is a particularly substantial workflow for which our assistance is ideally suited. We can prevent migration workflows from overwhelming internal technology managers, while ensuring a smooth migration through an established process supporting some of the biggest names in tech.
WHAT WE DO: PROTOTYPICAL MIGRATION WORKFLOW
Every project begins with the identification of key Azure features to be utilized to support client-defined goals. We plan for fixing any pre-existing errors in system design, curate data for consistency, and ensure that all the correct licensing is in place. The right planning helps control costs, avoid classic pitfalls, and deliver an impactful Azure solution on time and on budget.
We institute procedures designed to ensure the retention of complex data structures. Meticulous best practices for safe migration preserve valuable data while limiting downtime for key services. Our procedures provide protection against data loss or corruption and data mismatch between source and destination. Finally, we prevent the user-access issues that may imperil many otherwise successful cloud migration efforts.
After post-migration validation and testing procedures for data quality assurance, we provide a performance benchmark comparison, followed by a security Audit on cloud databases. After fixing any emerging application accessibility issues, we can begin active planning for maintaining optimal post-migration sizing and management support.
Supported by our global network of offices, the heart of our Azure services lies in our Redmond, Washington facility—a tangible representation of our close working relationship with Microsoft. It’s a relationship that continues to thrive as Zen3 successfully delivers powerful Azure deployments for some of the most respected names in the business, including multiple Fortune 500 companies.
Every business uses Azure differently, and our team specializes in understanding the specific business challenges each client’s Azure solution is intended to solve. Our attention to detailed best practices and the deep roster of talented pros have delivered tangible benefits across Zen3’s varied Azure consulting engagements.
