Frequently Asked Questions
With so many cloud infrastructure options, why does OneHQ choose Microsoft Azure?
OneHQ has been using Microsoft Azure (both for internal and client workloads) since 2014. We have also used a lot of other options, including AWS (Amazon Web Services). We have come to know the Microsoft Azure platform very well and find the upsides of using things like Microsoft 365 and Azure to be the best fit for our clients.
Which parts of a business IT system can be moved to Microsoft Azure?
When Azure first came available there was a small feature set. Now you can move almost any application, data, or server to Microsoft Azure to take advantage of modern, fast, secure hosting.
Where are data and applications that are put into Microsoft Azure located?
At OneHQ the majority of the Azure resources we have provisioned, are placed in the Microsoft’s Australian data centres. NZ is due to get its own Microsoft Azure data centre in 2022, so we will likely be moving those resources back to NZ as soon as that’s available, so we can leverage improved network performance.
Are there ways to minimize cost for resources that are moved to Azure?
Yes, absolutely! We have spent plenty of time working through these options with many clients. We are well placed to assist you with keeping your hosting costs in check.
Is my data safe in Microsoft Azure?
It is almost impossible to have data security levels equivalent to Microsoft’s. They are certified for government use, and many features such as high levels of encryption and network security are next level.
Is it cheaper to just put a physical server in my office?
This really depends on what you are trying to achieve (and what your data and application stack looks like). It has become very hard to compete with cloud hosting, as if it’s onsite you need to purchase the hardware, have it maintained, pay for power, space, deal with backups etc. There is also a 4 year (or so) cycle where you need to purchase new hardware.
Am I locked into a long-term contract if I use Microsoft Azure?
There are various options around this. In general, you can either use a pay-as-u-go arrangement, or fixed term of 1 or 3 years, both of which give you very large discounts compared to pay-as-u-go. We can work through this with you to ensure its optimized to your situation.
