Everything You Need to Know About Azure Pricing


Anyone who has ever tried to estimate Azure costs knows how deeply frustrating the process can be. Even after migrating to the cloud, many businesses wonder if they’re paying too much. It’s possible to create an estimate and control your cloud spend. You’ll start by isolating the cloud services you currently use or plan to after migrating.

2020 Is Challenging All of Us

We're here with you every step of the way as we figure out the new normal one day or week at a time.

Case Study: Nortec Helps Client Resume Operations in Record Time


When the Association for Print Technologies (APTech, formerly known as NPES) had a significant server failure, Nortec restored them in less than half a day – a full 6 ½ days ahead of when they expected to have their network up and running.

Because we had prepared them for this type of incident by shifting their operations to a pre-staged Azure server, they were ensured a level of business continuity that kept the organization running smoothly in the worst-case scenario.

“If I had not made that decision to go with Nortec, it could have been a week with the other vendor. It made me feel very strong about my level of confidence in Nortec and our disaster plan,” said Jesus Romero, the organization’s database and technology director.
