Bucharest, February 7th, 2018 - BinBox, one of the most modern providers of telecommunication services in Romania, is proud to announce that Azure Stack hybrid cloud services are now part of its portfolio.
Microsoft Azure Stack is an extension of the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, which sets the building blocks of a truly consistent cloud platform. Its consistency eliminates any setbacks generated by the complexity of a hybrid cloud platform, aiding to maximize the clients’ investments in the cloud platform and local storage media. At the same time, the consistency which is specific to the hybrid cloud platform contributes to the optimization of the application development process and the increase of developers’ productivity, as it allows the latter to use the same APIs and DevOps instruments as before, in order to create and implement similar applications. Azure Stack facilitates a quicker development of cloud applications, by building components thereof directly in the Azure Marketplace. Consequently, this feature allows clients to invest in people and processes, knowing that they are fully transferable. The ability to run consistent services on a local basis in Azure provides full flexibility in the decision-making process surrounding the location of the applications and processes’ storage. Additionally, the integrated delivery model based on systems allows companies to focus on what is important to the development of their businesses (i.e. applications), while also ensuring a faster delivery of innovative solutions from the Azure platform.
“Lately, more and more companies have been embarking on a digital transformation by using hybrid cloud. We are the only provider of all three types of cloud – private, public and hybrid. Through this first implementation of Azure Stack in Romania, Microsoft, together with partners such as BinBox, is helping companies benefit from the sheer strength of our cloud platform, in order to develop new products by using artificial intelligence, machine learning, cognitive intelligence and IoT - Internet of Things.”, stated Daniel Rusen, Cloud and Enterprise Lead, Microsoft Romania.
The BinBox team is permanently developing and implementing new ideas, in order to provide a wide range of applications and services, designed to optimize business processes across the board.
For instance, Azure Stack allows companies located in remote areas or dealing with unreliable networks to use cloud methods without an Internet connection. Another important feature is that users are no longer constrained by regulatory issues related to data protection and other critical, non-technical issues.
Last but not least, the cloud model can be brought on premises, by designing, updating and extending applications, with the help of a consistent DevOps process, available for deployment in the cloud platform as well as on-premises.
„We are thrilled by this new challenge and we are confident that it will lead to new opportunities on the Romanian cloud market. Moreover, we will be able to improve our products and launch customized services designed for the premium market, at the same time” stated Tiberiu Croitoru, CEO BinBox Global Services.
Microsoft’s hybrid cloud platform also brings a number of innovative characteristics to the Romanian market, such as:
- Compliance with the new European regulations regarding the protection of personal data - GDPR
- Improved DevOps and CloudOps practices
- Continuous integration
- Customized services
- Deployment templates for any environment
As a Microsoft partner and certified Azure Stack provider, BinBox is committed to provide the highest level of accessibility and security to its clients, by using state of the art technology from top-tier providers such as CISCO.
By capitalizing on the full potential of the Microsoft Azure Stack hybrid cloud platform’s characteristics, BinBox’s datacenters are now able to provide improved control and access to their clients’ data. Both government bodies as well as industries such as health, insurance and finance can benefit from the immediate advantages and future opportunities provided by the hybrid cloud platform.
