CCH iTrust and CCH Companies
Cloud Migration to Microsoft Azure
As part of our continuous investment into CCH iTrust and CCH Companies, we are excited to announce advancements in our hosting and information security controls.
Upgrade to Microsoft Azure
As part of Wolters Kluwer’s global strategy to remain a leader of cloud computing solutions, we are excited to announce to all CCH iTrust and Companies customers (currently hosted by Wolters Kluwer), our upcoming move to Microsoft’s Azure Cloud, hosted in Australia. Deploying on Microsoft Azure will provide increased benefits to users including a greater level of innovation, higher availability and scalability, improved application performance and security. We have already commenced deployment of solutions on Microsoft Azure and are now planning to migrate your hosted solution before the end of January 2020.
The migration will be performed out of NZ business hours. The migration is expected to be performed in less than 8 hours.
Azure global infrastructure provides the opportunity to leverage many tools and services which can be integrated into the CCH iTrust & Companies platform. This provides the ability to innovate quickly and adopt Infrastructure and development resources affordably for developing proof of concept and prototypes. This includes tools such as Azure development frameworks, Azure Analytics and BI Tools under PaaS to reduce development time in delivering opportunities.
Availability and Scalability
By transitioning to Azure, Wolters Kluwer will have the ability to leverage a mix of technologies to more easily increase the amount of compute resources deployed in response to demand or a defined schedule. This approach can provide higher availability to applications; redundancy and improved performance as application components are typically distributed across multiple instances.
As part of our move to Azure, we will be adopting the latest generation infrastructure. We will take advantage of the optimised query performance and transactional speed improvements.
Azure offers greater compliance coverage, visibility of security events and threat protection. Azure Application Gateway provides centralized protection of CCH iTrust and Companies from common exploits and vulnerabilities.
