Overview

Choice and simplicity in the cloud

The cloud is no longer optional

Our research says that 90 per cent of our biggest customers expect to be using multiple clouds in the next two years. They realise they can use different clouds for different jobs. We think that over the next few years most organisations will have five or six clouds running, including their own in-house cloud. To help you exploit the choice of cloud services on offer, our partnership with Microsoft brings together the very best networks, services and expertise to make the promise of cloud a reality.

Get the best of both worlds

Our partnership with Microsoft Azure gives you the choice. Our complimentary cloud services provide you with the opportunity to exploit both the flexibility hybrid and the power of hyperscale cloud computing to meet your unique business demands.

Together, we make it easier for organisations to embrace the cloud and use it for truly transformational purposes. From being able to run private and public clouds together and connecting your own data centres with our global network of cloud-enabled ones, we provide you access to the choice of hyperscale cloud services from Microsoft Azure. You can choose what and where to connect, blend together your private assets and ours and you can enhance this further with the rich set of services and infrastructure offered from Azure.

Two services, one bill

We make this simple. BT Compute for Microsoft Azure provides you with the ability to order Microsoft Azure alongside our BT Compute portfolio of services on a single contract option. Two services, one bill. By leveraging our combined assets and services, you can build hybrid services across BT Compute, Microsoft Azure and your own data centres to drive new opportunities tailored for your business.

 And we ensure your experience is the best it can be with secure, high performance connectivity. BT Cloud Connect ExpressRoute for Azure give you the choice to connect your WAN (BT IP Connect – MPLS IP VPN) to Microsoft Azure, giving you top-notch performance and peace of mind through connecting straight to Microsoft’s cloud over our global network.
