Microsoft Azure Cloud Environment

With the trend toward cloud adoption, Focus Solutions offers its expertise in HIPAA/HITRUST compliance to the widely used Microsoft Azure infrastructure.

Azure offers:

  • Integration with other MS tools by seamlessly integrating MS tools, including SharePoint, Office 365, and Outlook while offering Linux or Windows virtual machine environment.
  • Trust and comfort in the most popular, reliable, and effective cloud tools.
  • Managed (IaaS) and unmanaged (PaaS) services. Healthcare organizations using IaaS solutions can outsource their cloud infrastructure with a pay what you use feature. Alternatively, PaaS solutions allow an organization to build and customize their own applications to meet their demanding business needs without the IT infrastructure costs.
