Sitecore Azure

The days when businesses would buy, store and maintain their own servers and hardware to host their websites on are long gone. Now, businesses use the Cloud. And the same goes for Sitecore users.

By combining the power of Sitecore with the speed and scale of Microsoft Azure, Sitecore has presented us with its Platform as a Service (PaaS) version of Sitecore.

Sitecore Azure is the ability to deploy, build and maintain the Sitecore platform on Microsoft Azure. This produces a robust, dependable cloud solution for your Content Management System.

Our technical geniuses at ClerksWell were one of the first teams to tackle the complexity of hosting Sitecore on Microsoft Azure. And as such, we’re well equipped to provide our customers with the most recent and most complicated Sitecore solution.

So whether you’re new to Sitecore or are an existing Sitecore customer hoping to move to the Cloud, get in touch with ClerksWell. We’re your ideal Sitecore Azure partner.

What are the benefits of Sitecore Azure Hosting?

The merging of the Sitecore Experience Platform (XP) with Microsoft Azure has created a force to be reckoned with. Here are just a few of the benefits of building your website with Sitecore Azure.

  • Gain better insights into your customers and provide them with more personalised digital experiences. With Sitecore XP, you gain masses of information about your customers across multiple channels. Microsoft Azure provides the storage needed to capture this data and deliver the perfect experience at the right time.

  • Deploy and implement Sitecore XP on Azure in minutes by using the Azure Marketplace or Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates which allow you to discover the Cloud software you want.

  • Automatically scale up or down on Azure PaaS, meaning that you only pay for what you use. When lots of people come to your site, Sitecore Azure will automatically scale out to accommodate them and will scale back in again when demand is low.

  • Azure is Microsoft’s Cloud option so you can imagine how tight security is. Sitecore Azure takes privacy and GDPR very seriously.
