Windows Azure is a competitive open and flexible cloud platform that puts a full Windows Server experience at your fingertips without the need for expensive networking and server infrastructure. Combine Windows Azure with Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2, and you have yourself a high-powered, user-friendly business management solution for your small or midsized business without all of the heavy lifting.
Windows Azure is not just a typical software-as-a-service (SaaS) cloud offering. It is a cloud platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering a full range of management tools to deploy and manage applications on Microsoft's highly available global network of data centers. Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 is fully ready and compatible with Windows Azure. You can have your ERP solution deployed, hosted and up and running on Windows Azure without the cost barrier that many small and midsized businesses might usually face.
With Dynamics NAV on Windows Azure you get a lower cost of ownership on a scalable infrastructure, low cost upgrades as part of your subscription, the trusted security of Microsoft's own data centers which host everything from Outlook to Xbox Live, 99.95% guaranteed availability and 24x7 global support.
If you ever considered moving your ERP to the cloud, this is the opportunity you should not pass up. With Windows Azure hosting for your ERP implementation, you get the flexibility of on-premise hosting with the lower infrastructure cost of the cloud.
