Yesterday, SingleHop and Server Intellect introduced a new managed services offering to help companies achieve more efficiency, security and control for their Microsoft Azure environments. The services are a natural extension of Server Intellect’s rich expertise in Microsoft-based private cloud and managed hosting and squarely target the growing adoption of Azure as a critical component of many companies’ IT strategies. I’m excited about this launch. Really! And I’ll tell you why. Our approach solves real-world problems for companies in a new and, yes—better—way. We bring automation to the table in a way that improves response and resolution, results in better implementations and reduces human error. We go well beyond supporting Azure to address issues at the OS level – something that Microsoft Azure’s support team doesn’t do – and we also provide support for SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint and IIS. This solution leverages the magnitude of experience Server Intellect has gained in its eleven-year partnership with Microsoft, focusing exclusively on solving challenges for customers within the Microsoft ecosystem.
So, today I’d like to share with you five reasons you should take a look at ServiceFirst™ Remote Management Services for Microsoft.

- Worry-free Migrations
If you are thinking about making the move to Azure, then you’ll also likely have to deal with the implication of a migration.

With ServiceFirst you will gain access to a staff of certified Windows technicians with a great deal of experience in migration who will be with you every step of the way to make the transition as smooth as possible.
