‘Azure appears to be full’: As cloud providers seem to be struggling with increasing demand, is it time to invest in your own resources rather than rely on someone else for your business-critical needs?

These are, of course, unprecedented times. The majority of UK organisations are adjusting to a new way of operating, and the significant adoption to home working appears to be having an impact on cloud services. 

Microsoft Azure users have recently been complaining about capacity issues, as reported in the RegisterCreating and assigning new computer-based resources in Azure UK data centres may fail as they struggle to reach demand.    

Lack of capacity last week, combined with two high-profile Azure outages in the previous 12 months will get some IT Managers thinking around their dependence solely on cloud-based products and services.

Whether you place your trust entirely in cloud-based services, a hybrid solution, or solely on-premises, the question remains a complex one.

Tim Cripps, Managing Director, Trustco Plc, argues that while cloud providers have their place and the advantages are clear; a hybrid approach to data is the answer, mixing some cloud with some on-premise. 

“When the dust settles, and IT Teams evaluate their plans for the coming 12 months, Trustco can work with you to put together a roadmap for success that makes commercial, technical and strategic sense for your business operations.

“Whether you want to reduce IT CAPEX, free up data centre rack space, or simplify management, Trustco will design and implement a solution which works for your business”.
