Chainbridge has been deploying solutions to Microsoft Azure since early 2011, implementing large-scale, mission-focused applications for both government and commercial clients. Working closely with our partners at Microsoft, we have developed an expertise in cloud technologies and have established a proven track record delivering solutions that leverage the full suite of Azure infrastructure and platform services.
Azure and You
Our clients have found that Azure increases the security, scalability, and reliability of their mission-critical systems while dramatically reducing their maintenance burden and cost. With billions invested in their cloud platform, Microsoft has established Azure as a paradigm-shifting technology allowing you to focus on your business and mission while remaining confident that your IT infrastructure remains secure and well-managed. Your infrastructure should serve your mission, not the other way around.
Our Cloud-First Approach
In a high availability world, the scalability and redundancy of the Azure platform has transformed our offering as we follow Microsoft into the future of cloud. For solutions built from the ground up, utilizing Platform as a Service (PaaS) is key to fully taking advantage of the cloud. Chainbridge's solutions can leverage the highly scalable Azure Websites services and the massive resiliency of the Azure SQL Database services. For many of our enterprise class applications, we've augmented our solutions with global distribution via Traffic Manager and Azure SQL Database's active geo-replication, high-capacity geo-redundant storage via Blob Storage, and real-time, high-volume processing using the Service Bus.
Moving to the Cloud
Obviously, PaaS may not be an option for all solutions. Special compliance requirements and software dependencies may require a solution more in-line with on-premise hosting. Chainbridge has extensive experience merging these more traditional applications with the cloud environment using Azure's Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) including Virtual Machines, Virtual Networks, Azure Active Directory and Office 365. Helping you to correctly utilize these overlapping technologies, Chainbridge can provide your organization with a stepped progression to the cloud, all within a comfortable framework for system administration and regulatory compliance.
Compliance and Cybersecurity
Microsoft has ensured that Azure is fully compliant with important standards like FedRAMP, CJIS, and FIPS, and fully supports HIPAA, 508, and PII requirements. Leveraging this investment, Chainbridge worked with our partners at Microsoft to achieve the first Authority-to-Operate (ATO) granted by any federal agency to an Azure based system. The path to an ATO for a federal system can be daunting, but our experienced staff will guide you through the myriad technical and documentation tasks needed to meet the most stringent compliance requirements.
