Stone Group - Providing digital transformation solutions to organisations across the UK.

Microsoft Azure is all-encompassing; offering the ability to provide cloud services including Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS).

Thus, it’s no wonder many people struggle to get their head around exactly what it is when it can be pretty much anything.

Cut the cost of cloud back-ups, get secure Single Sign On (SSO) to commonly used apps like Office 365, Salesforce and Dropbox and build your infrastructure in a natively scalable environment with our range of Azure services.
