Cosentry (, a provider of IT solutions in the Midwest, has extended its managed cloud services to Microsoft Azure.

The new service provides expertise in connecting to Microsoft Azure, with a focus on utilizing Azure for SQL Server testing and development, SQL Server backup and SQL Server disaster recovery environments. Cosentry has more than a decade of experience supporting SQL Server database environments, primarily those running on a private cloud; this new offering focuses on expanding support to hybrid cloud solutions, says CEO Brad Hokamp. Electrical Components International Inc. (ECI) has engaged with Cosentry to gain new efficiencies leveraging Azure as part of a hybrid cloud environment.

“Their expertise in SQL Server and managed cloud services will be leveraged to enhance our implementation while giving me the peace-of-mind that ECI has one of the best customer support teams in the industry,” says Adrian Ostman, Global IT Director, ECI.

Cosentry’s Managed Hybrid Cloud Services utilizing Azure combines the platform with the company’s managed services. This combination makes hybrid cloud resources accessible for Cosentry’s new or existing customers, where Cosentry is managing their SQL Server database. Cosentry’s Managed Hybrid Cloud Services utilizing Azure includes SQL server testing and development, SQL server backup, and SQL Server Disaster Recovery.
