The World's Leading Cloud Company

Nearly two thirds of Fortune 500 companies use Microsoft Azure for their cloud computing solution and an average of 1,000 customers are signing up every day. The benefits of the cloud are well documented: spinning up virtual machines in minutes, providing scalable and durable cloud storage, and backup and recovery solutions for law offices of all sizes.


AC Consulting will provide you with a Certified Microsoft Azure Consultant who will assist you in planning and deploying your private Microsoft Cloud solution. Benefits of the Microsoft Cloud are:

Cost Savings
• A reduction in IT costs because you no longer have to pay to set up, maintain, or back up your servers
• Scalability of costs as you only purchase the data amount that you currently need
• Ability to avoid purchasing costly hardware which will quickly become obsolete

Better Accessibility
• Employees can work from any location where they have access to a computer
• Clients can easily share files that cannot be emailed because they are too large or contain confidential information

Disaster Recovery
• In the event of a computer failure or natural disaster, employees can be up and running on a new computer as quickly as you can provide internet access to it
• You will never lose data because your files are backed up to the cloud in real-time

Better Security
• The online data storage capability is able to afford more robust physical security measures than a solo practitioner or small firm can afford
• Our reputable online data storage services use cutting edge security technologies
