3 scenarios for replacing your on-premise infrastructure with cloud services
Software as a Service (SaaS)
Business applications like Microsoft 365 office apps and Dynamics 365 run in a highly secured commercial or government environment, allowing your staff or customers to easily access hosted apps anytime, anywhere, on any device.
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
The Azure platform provide highly scalable database management and business intelligence services. Migrating middleware and data applications to the cloud avoids licensing complexity, allowing your teams to focus on the delivery of applications and data.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
The virtual machines in Azure act as a replacement for physical hardware, allowing businesses to deploy custom servers and networking systems. This supports the need to migrate legacy business applications to the cloud.
SaaS with Microsoft Cloud Applications
Microsoft 365 apps transform productivity by providing a collaborative environment to use various applications and of course, the Microsoft Office suite from any device. Arctic IT takes your needs into account and performs a full assessment of your existing network to recommend the best deployment strategy for your Microsoft 365 services. We use specialized migration tools to quickly and accurately transition your business to Microsoft’s platform. Cloud-hosted technologies provide the flexibility to grow and innovate into the future as a modern business.
Using Microsoft 365 applications for business productivity and collaboration
Because its hosted in the cloud, users can securely access Microsoft 365 applications as needed from anywhere on virtually every flavor of device. Administrators can easily manage accounts for team members, providing access to applications and data as well as quickly add accounts for new talent.
Several other applications are available to supplement core Microsoft services for a more personal experience. Microsoft AppSource connects approved third-party applications that greatly improve productivity. Users can take advantage of Microsoft Teams with Microsoft 365 Apps for focused collaboration with a powerful messaging system that also offers calling and conferencing functions.
Microsoft has put an expiration date on last generation’s Microsoft Dynamic products. Today, these ERP and CRM solutions are being replaced by the powerful Dynamics 365 platform (Dynamics 365 Finance, Dynamics 365 Sales, Dynamics 365 Commerce, and more).
Modernize your business applications with the cloud
Dynamics 365 business applications are natively integrated with the Microsoft 365 application suite, making the experience more efficient than ever. Let Arctic IT, a Microsoft Gold Partner, show you how to unlock the best in your business with Dynamics 365.
PaaS and IaaS with Azure cloud services
Onsite systems age over time, requiring continual maintenance and upgrades to ensure proper performance. Even with sufficient maintenance plans and knowledgeable teams, business is tethered to the capabilities of equipment and software between upgrades. The various cloud services by Microsoft provide substantial flexibility at cost-effective price points for future-proofing your business.
Businesses can take advantage of cloud services to replace on-premise infrastructure, as well as utilize the intelligent applications and services built-in to the platform.

The cloud offers the flexibility to optimize server resources for your business applications. Just what you need when you need it and nothing more.
Agility to create test, development, and single use servers quickly and for short or extended periods of time is a huge benefit of cloud. It’s more than just servers in the cloud; the Microsoft platform has all kinds of services that make your team more efficient, secure, and free to focus on what you do best.
Not only is the cloud more efficient, it also provides a higher level of security. It eliminates the need for physical security and provides better access control.
Arctic IT can help you navigate which cloud or multi-cloud solution is best for your organization. If you’re a Microsoft shop wanting to leverage some of your existing investments in software and knowledge with Azure, Arctic IT is your trusted partner for cloud migration.
Microsoft Azure as a hybrid or multi-cloud
Some businesses choose to leave certain systems in place for a variety of reasons. A hybrid cloud refers to a mixture of systems that exist in a public or private data center that interface with onsite technology. Azure can securely work with systems that remain on premises to deliver a highly custom experience.
Interested in moving to the cloud but don’t want all your eggs in one basket? We can help you implement a multi-cloud solution that combines both Azure and AWS to create a redundant cloud system.
