With the right combination of cloud platforms, you will get short time-to-market, optimum security and scalability that will give business advantages in an ever changing market.
Not all your applications can profit from being placed in a cloud. And no two clouds are the same.
Public cloud solutions are particularly attractive because of the easy and efficient scalability of the infrastructure. However, if your applications do not support scaling or you do not need it, there is no benefit.
It may even cost you extra, because a server in the public cloud is far from cheaper than traditional virtual servers. Especially when you include the inevitable network traffic and I/O in the calculation. Consequently, you must choose your cloud solutions carefully, and we can help you do that.
Our cloud specialists can make an analysis of your current IT solutions and map which systems you can profitably place in a public or private cloud, and which systems should stay in dedicated customized solutions.
For each of your systems, we evaluate your requirements to business-critical operation in relation to the security level of the different cloud platforms and their technological limitations. The age of your solutions, your quality requirements, operation stability and security are also included in the analysis. This can provide you with business-critical knowledge when you have to choose between transforming the old solutions or implementing all new ones.
With our experience and competences in operating hybrid IT infrastructure, we know exactly how to map the competences and processes that are necessary to ensure a stable and business-critical operation across systems. We operate solutions on all different kinds of platforms, so we know the advantages and disadvantages of the different cloud solutions. That is why we can give you professional advice.
Many applications and standard servers can be operated in a public cloud, and you may want to consider that option.
The short time to market alone, as well as the possibility for fast and massive scaling may be advantages to you when your business grows.
However, no matter where it is located, a server is never just a server. A server in Microsoft Azure requires the same adjustment, monitoring and security as the one you have in your basement. And Office 365 is only really smart when Single Sign-on has been established.
We can help you migrate to public cloud, and we can monitor, integrate and handle security on your Azure platforms so that you can leverage the advantages.
Customizing public cloud to fit your security needs is troublesome, and it may be difficult to figure out if public clouds like Microsoft Azure or AWS comply with the security requirements of your business.
We can help you find out where in your business Azure offers advantages. When we implement our efficient network protection, server protection and logging solutions on your cloud platforms, we increase transparency and control in Azure, which is of vital importance.
Compliance requirement such as loggging and risk analysis applys both public and private clouds alike. Consequently, you must know where legal requirements like the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) apply in your company, and whether they prevent you from using public cloud.
We have already identified the important areas in which your IT infrastructure must comply with the legal requirements. Thus, we can help you implement and operate solutions in Azure that comply with the documentation requirements. In this way, you can take advantage of Microsoft Azure and get global reach, or you can implement Office 365 and SharePoint as your hyper scalable e-mail and office platforms.
