MTF Swiss Cloud has been offering professional and highly secure cloud solutions to SMEs for over 10 years. Numerous domestic and foreign private and public cloud providers are active in the market, which supposedly provide similar cloud services. Microsoft offers the public cloud service "Microsoft Azure". However, the MTF Business Cloud and Microsoft Azure differ fundamentally. Make the direct comparison and find out why the MTF Business Cloud is the ideal solution for SMEs.
The MTF Business Cloud and Microsoft Azure differ significantly in terms of security, availability, functions and service. The comparison shows the differences between cloud solutions with a focus on SME customers. (Survey from 1.10.2019).
The most important difference between Microsoft Azure and the MTF Business Cloud is the cloud delivery model. Microsoft Azure relies on the public cloud model, in which various resources such as applications (Software-as-a-Service, SaaS), complete computing platforms (Platform-as-a-Service, Paas) or IT infrastructure such as storage or servers (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) are made available to numerous customers simultaneously. In the MTF Business Cloud, on the other hand, the same delivery models are available in a private cloud environment that is operated in MTF's own Swiss data centers. This environment offers each customer their own virtual, completely isolated data center in which all functions are available only for them (e.g. their own firewall, VPN routers, isolated networks with security, backup system, storage disks and much more).
Microsoft Azure only offers the cloud infrastructure, i.e. the technical tools (e.g. cloud backup), but monitoring and responsibility lies with the customer or third party providers. In addition to the cloud infrastructure, MTF also offers managed cloud services with consulting, conception, implementation and operation as a complete solution from a single source.
Azure does not provide high availability for virtual machines across multiple data centers (georedundancy). With the MTF Business Cloud, high availability (99.95%) for virtual machines including synchronous data mirroring across multiple georedundant data centers is included as standard.
