Innovate with Microsoft Azure Product Portfolio
Microsoft Azure is a recognized leader in both private and public cloud, which provides more than 200 preconfigured services and the choice to integrate your existing infrastructure on Windows. Formerly known as Windows Azure, Microsoft Azure offers an integrated set of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Iaas) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) capabilities, including technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Analytics, DevOps, Big data, and security, all of which complement and integrate with on-premises systems. Its cloud infrastructure spans 140 countries and provides 99.95% of SLA to enterprise customers. With more than US$ 1 billion being invested in research and development with 3,500 security experts, Microsoft Azure has evolved from Windows Azure to better protect organizations with multi-layered security across data centers, infrastructure, and operations. More importantly, Azure leads the industry with more than 90 compliance offerings. As Microsoft Top Cloud Solution Providers (CSP), Superhub helps enterprises in Hong Kong and overseas fully exploit the power of Microsoft Azure on Windows with unparalleled & professional consultancy services, and management services regarding security.
Why Microsoft Azure?
Modernize on Azure or Move to Azure
Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2 reached end-of-support on 10 Oct 2023. To avoid any cybersecurity risk for your organization, it is time to modernize on Azure or migrate to Azure and receive up to 3 years of free Extended Security Updates (ESUs) for comprehensive protection.

Maximize Value from Existing Microsoft Investment
Using Microsoft Azure, enterprises can maximize the value of their existing Microsoft investment while migrating to the cloud in a three-fold way. Firstly, Microsoft offers integrated experience across three cloud platforms: Modern Workplace Services (such as Office 365, Microsoft 365 or Teams Voice), Azure cloud platform, and Business application (like D365 or Power Platform). Secondly, Azure capitalizes your existing Microsoft investment with Azure Hybrid Benefit, which is a licensing benefit that facilitates businesses by running their Microsoft workloads in the cloud. It works by enabling companies to use their on-premises Software Assurance-enabled Windows Server and SQL Server licenses on Azure. And now, this benefit applies to RedHat and AUSE Linux subscriptions too. By migrating EOS Windows server 2008R2 to the cloud, the Azure Hybrid Benefit can protect enterprises against security or compliance issues with extended security updates. Last but not least, Microsoft Azure extends an organization’s existing knowledge and offers a consistent experience across on-premises and cloud technologies through integration with Office 365 and Active Directory.
Saving Scenarios: Maximize Savings by using Azure Hybrid Benefit for both Windows Server and SQL Server workloads.
Only on Microsoft Azure can you:
• Use Windows Server license assignment in the cloud.
• Get 180 days of dual-use rights between on-premises and the clouds
• Use existing SQL Server licenses in platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
• Apply to SQL Server 1 to 4 vCPUs exchange: For every 1 core of SQL Server Enterprise Edition, you get 4 vCPUs of SQL Managed Instance or Azure SQL Database general purpose and Hyperscale tiers, or 4 vCPUs of SQL Server Standard edition on Azure VMs.
Identity & Access Management (IAM)
One of the core differentiations of Microsoft Azure compared to the other clouds in the market is its one-of-a-kind Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), an identity and access management solution that combines single-sign-on (SSO) capabilities to any cloud and on-premises applications with advanced protection. It gives a company’s employees, partners, and customers a single identity to access the applications they want and collaborate from any platform or device. Azure AD is a highly secure identity and access management cloud solution that combines core directory services, advanced identity governance, and application access management that is built on Microsoft’s global presence. Extensive consumer experience is combined with powerful user behavior analysis and advanced machine learning technologies to create the Microsoft Security Intelligent graph that protects enterprises with features like conditional access control policies, identity protection, privilege identity management, and multi-factor authentications. Azure AD empowers businesses without borders and lets them truly experience the plethora of benefits associated with Microsoft Azure, whether on a Windows server or SQL server.
Microsoft Azure AD supports one Identity for thousands of Apps:
A cloud-connected, seamless authentication experiences
With Azure AD Connect, integrate your single or multi-forest Active Directory and other on-premises directories with Azure AD and use one identity to access any app.
Microsoft Authenticator gives you single sign-on across all platforms for your Azure AD-connected mobile apps that use modern authentication, so your employees only need to log in once.
Remote access to your on-premises apps
Microsoft Azure AD offers secure remote access to on-premises web applications, eliminating the need to use VPN or other legacy publishing solutions.
Bringing your own SaaS
For apps not already in the gallery or your own in-house SaaS apps, simply use one of our simple templates or libraries to turn your app into an Microsoft Azure AD-enabled app.
Thousands of pre-integrated apps
Microsoft Azure AD already works with a huge number of commercial and custom apps you probably use on a daily basis, like Office 365, Saleforce.com, Box, and Workday.
Domain Controller as a Service
We offer domain management services to help you move your traditional apps to Azure IaaS, for Windows and Linux VMs.
Enable Remote Work Anywhere with Productivity
Microsoft Azure’s Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) offers fully managed desktop virtualization as a subscription service with multitenant in nature. The backend VDI infrastructure includes virtual machines that run desktop operation systems, hosted on Microsoft Azure. WVD then streams the virtual desktop image and applications to the end-users devices, including Windows, Mac, IOS, Android, or new HTML5. The main appeal is separating the computer environment from users’ devices, so the risk of confidential information being left on personal devices is greatly reduced. Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) delivers the only multi-session Windows 10 experience with optimization on Office 365 ProPlus, and support for remote desktop service environments. Other VDI solutions like Citrix and VMware can also be hosted on Azure to enjoy the best experience on Windows 10 and management planes of their choice. With WVD, enterprises can deploy and scale their Windows and apps on Microsoft Azure in minutes with built-in security and compliance.
