Back-end System Development

When you require more and more resources for your large data and maintaining your back end systems on site, Nextscape can support you with Azure solutions which emphasize the cloud characteristics which help you the most. For example, if you have to periodically process large amounts of data, but the upkeep for the required system all around the year would be too costly, we can offer you a solution, which is automatically scalable and supports concurrent processing. This saves you costs, as you only have to pay for the performance you used (whereas an own server park requires maintenance, air-condition, etc.). This also saves you time, due to the concurrent processing option you can process data which would usually take months, within only a few days.



System Migration

Nextscape provides system migration services for clients who are planning to move their systems to a cloud-environment. We offer analysis of the current system, conformity assessment for the migration to Azure and preliminary cost calculation. After this, Nextscape can again take care of all required steps for the merger. Including the complete migration itself and operation monitoring to ensure the safe and secure operation of the newly moved system.

Performance Monitoring

Nextscape can offer 24/365 monitoring services for any Azure based system in addition to the usual support, maintenance and development services. Nextscape has not only its experience to build upon, but also its good relations with Microsoft, which enable us to request changes in the system if it is really required for the sake of our client. This is again a large bonus to the reliability of the solutions Nextscape has to offer.

Merits

High-Availability

Even though the SLA for every solution might differ, the guaranteed availability is 99.9% or more. It is also possible to restore have up to 99.95% availability, with the use of some backup options.

The Azure cloud environment operates on a high number of servers, and in case one server failed, it is automatically separated from the cloud system.

While an on-premises system concentrates on “having a server which doesn’t fail”, and which is impossible, the Azure cloud simply filters out the machine that failed, and looks for the server.

Thanks to this, Azure is always prepared for hardware issues in the server park and has several scenarios prepared to protect your system.

Scalability

On-premises systems require planning, space, and maintenance. This becomes even more important, when you have to scale up your systems, as all these will increase. If you choose Azure, you can easily scale up your system, or even have this automated for you.

Cost reduction

When a business starts, it is hard to calculate the IT infrastructure needed in the near future. With Azure’s scalability, our clients can start small, and grow in accordance with the growth of their business. Furthermore, with the PaaS system, not only hardware costs, but the OS deployment and maintenance costs can also be saved.

Global Presence

Azure has server parks all over the world, with two or more server parks deployed in every major region in Asia, Europe, the USA, Brazil and Japan for example. This enables our clients to always access the fastest systems closest to them.

Speed

One of the secrets of Nextscape’s fast pace at system planning and deployments is the partnership with Microsoft. Nextscape doesn’t have to divide its attention among hardware, OS and other platform related topics, but can instead focus on the developments and business improvement.

Disaster Prevention

Because of the many locations of the Azure server parks, even if a data center is affected by an earthquake for example, the services won’t top. There are several redundancy and backup options available with Azure, which enable our clients to have systems that never stop working.

Quality Support

Microsoft provides various levels of support for Azure. Nextscape, as a Microsoft partner, can leverage this support and further add Nextscape’s own know-how and experience, to provide the ultimate support experience for both solutions and services.

Multi-Platform Support

Even though Azure is Microsoft’s cloud environment, it is not limited to Microsoft platforms. For OS, it supports Windows and Linux operating systems. Development languages are also not limited to .Net and C# only, but include Eclipse plugin, Java, PHP, Ruby, Python, Node.js, etc. Apart from MS SQL, MySWL, Oracle and other databases are supported too. Even SDKs for applications based on Android and iOS are made available.
