Learn More About Content Services for Azure

We invite you to join your peers in learning more about what we accomplished with Azure to store your content from our Chief Technology Officer, Brad Porter, and our VP of Product Management, Jason Burian.                                                                                      

Since our last webinar series, you’ve learned more about the KnowledgeLake Cloud Platform. In this webinar, we will expand upon using Azure in conjunction with the KnowledgeLake Cloud Platform to meet your document management needs.                                                                                  

Why KnowledgeLake Customers Have Made the Transition from SharePoint to Azure

Simple Migration

Azure allows users to migrate a complete solution to the cloud with ease, which is especially useful when first moving to Azure. This saves you time, money, effort, and the hassle of not quite knowing how to solve complex issues that may come up.


Azure is one of the most secure platforms on the planet: Microsoft detects 1.5 million attempts to compromise its systems a day. We aren’t just fending off those attacks—we’re also learning from them in order to provide the best and most up-to-date security system to every Azure customer. You’re also able to back up your data in different locations around the globe to ensure that, if something were to happen to one of the data centers, your project is secure.


Being able to access your project at any time is vital for a cloud-based service—especially for organizations that have multiple teams working on the same project in different time zones. Azure leverages ready-to-use failovers* and load balancers** to ensure that your project is always up and running.

* - Failover: a procedure where a system automatically transfers control to a duplicate system when there is a fault or failure detected.

** - Load balancing: a technique of distributing requests over a network when a server is maxing out the CPU or disk or database IO rate. The objective of load balancing is optimizing resource use and minimizing response time, thereby avoiding overburden of any one of the resources.

As mentioned before, scalability will be an issue if you either have a sudden influx of traffic or predict a large amount of traffic and end up having much less. With Azure, you can simply add or remove computing power as necessary. Azure can also track the traffic associated with your solution/project and automatically adjust it to meet your needs.

Picture a sports stadium that holds 30,000 people. The average crowd is 23,000. But, this year, the home team has been winning every game and tickets keep selling out! Would you build a bigger stadium, perhaps to a 40,000 capacity? What happens if the team starts losing and attendance drops back down to 23,000? If this was an Azure stadium, you could add and remove seats as necessary! Imagine the amount of money that this simple feature could save your organization.

Useful Data

The data that you obtain from the use of your solution will all be tracked in Azure, and there’s no better tool for visualizing this data than Power BI. Power BI allows you to track how much the average spend on your store could be, how much time a visitor spends watching your videos, or even how many blog posts your visitors are reading. With Azure and Power BI, you’re able to make the best decision for your organization based on the data you’re provided with.
