Marias adds Microsoft Azure to its Hosting Services

Staff Writer | August 14, 2017

Marias Technology, a provider of software testing, project management, integrations, implementation, hosting services, and more to the insurance industry, is now offering Microsoft Azure cloud hosting. Marias is a Cloud Connected Service Provider (CCSP) for Microsoft. Marias customers and prospects can now choose between having their systems and applications hosted on equipment in the Marias data center or in the Microsoft Cloud with Azure.

“We’re excited to add Microsoft’s Azure cloud hosting to our portfolio of products and services,” says R. Christopher Haines, president and CEO of Marias. “Azure gives us and our customers the best of both worlds. Some companies like the security of a known, accessible, geographic location. Others prefer the flexibility and scalability of the cloud. By incorporating Azure, we can now offer either — or both — and still provide the kind of responsive, personalize service our customers expect from us.”

By offering Azure, Marias will give its customer the benefits of:

  • Having their systems and applications hosted in a SOC 2 Type II compliant datacenter in Covington, Ohio, that features appropriate controls to keep systems and data secure and available, redundant Internet connections, stand-by power, and secure Internet connections from multiple providers.
  • Having their systems and applications hosted in the Microsoft Azure cloud, giving them integrated cloud services in which they can build, deploy, and manage applications through a global network of data centers with the tools, the applications, and the frameworks they choose.
