Nonprofit ministries are always looking to optimize donor dollars. Some of the biggest expenses that ministries face with a donor system are hardware and the expertise to keep it up and running while maintaining a secure infrastructure. Most nonprofits have been doing this on-premises for years, but the employee, hardware, and license costs continue to increase.
DonorDirect chose Microsoft Azure as the cloud platform for its solution, employing Azure Virtual Machines. With Azure, DonorDirect is able to provide ministries with an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution, so that each client has private access to the cloud. DonorDirect uses several other features of Azure, including Azure Automation, Virtual Networks, and Local and Geo-Redundant Storage Blobs. By choosing Azure, DonorDirect’s clients are always using the most up-to-date technology.
Azure dynamic right-sizing allows infrastructure to always fit: You pay only for what you need and use in your private cloud.
Azure secure facilities maintain PCI DSS Level 1, giving peace of mind to each ministry customer of DonorDirect.
