Organizations that harness data, the cloud, and AI out perform
Cloud technologies are at the center of the digital transformation revolution. Companies embracing digital transformation must embrace the cloud to be successful.
There are many advantages to adopting the cloud. Businesses moving to the cloud do so for a range of motivations, seeking a variety of benefits. These benefits fall into four categories: cost, agility, service quality, and new scenarios.
The most common service offered is ‘lift and shift’ migrations through our Azure infrastructure services (IaaS). This focuses on cost reduction by reducing or removing the dependency on on-premises infrastructure. Within this area, a range of complementary services can be offered, such as migration assessments and networking services.

Choose the Right Cloud Platform
There are very few tier-1 service provider are present in the cloud infrastructure as service industry – Namely Azure, Amazon and Google. We help you to identify the right provider based on your core IT needs. We build out the appropriate services needed and respective pricing.
Check for Hardware Obsolescence
Many existing network devices employ hardware acceleration to power through heavy traffic. Not all simulated devices—like virtual routers, switches, and load balancers—currently support hardware acceleration in the cloud. Audit your traffic and processor demands and trends before assuming virtual replacement devices will perform all the duties of existing native hardware.
Research Licensing Issues
Native networking environments of yesterday usually licensed software by the user, the device, or by enterprise. But the cloud changes these variables, hosting apps on machines with adjustable virtual processor counts and adding the ability to scale application services and servers. Factoring this impact on your licensing model could save huge sums of money.
Mind Your SSLs and Certificates
- Secure socket layer certificates operate with precision to verify data routes and security. Changing a host location can throw your SSLs off track. It’s best to review where and how you use SSLs and prepare to renew or replace them before going live from a new hybrid cloud environment. Companies like DigiCert offer insight tools to assess your SSL chain.
Audit IP Addresses
- IP addresses, usually statically or dynamically assigned and then forgotten about, take on another layer of challenge in the cloud. Old DHCP scopes and static addresses will likely change when moving to a cloud infrastructure, creating the need for a thorough IP address relationship audit prior to the move so that dependent sockets won’t be broken on migration.
Evaluate Access Control List Dependencies
An access control list (ACL) regulates user and service activity across your network. As with IP addresses, migration will impact ACL dependencies. Customer traffic and system activities like backups, hypervisors, and monitoring will need to be reviewed for a shift to a full or hybrid cloud infrastructure to make sure everyone and everything can reach what it has to in the new design.
Why do Enterprises hold back on Cloud Strategy?
Why Migrate to the Cloud?
Organizations – SMBs and Enterprises alike, have traditionally been held back to keep up to the growing demands of IT infrastructure due to the capital cost and man power required to setup, manage and maintenance needs. However, moving to the cloud adds tangible value to their outlook. More and more companies are moving their critical application services to the cloud to make them available to their customers and vendors demands without needing huge IT Budgets. With more and more easy and better mobile internet availability, a high availability of your services is a must and directly effects your edge over your competitors and revenue.
Agility and speed
With the cloud, procurement of new inventory and storage space is reduced to a matter of days or even hours, giving businesses the agility to respond to a rapidly changing environment.
The simplicity in cloud solutions makes teams more productive. In distributed teams, the cloud removes region-specific dependencies, creating a collaborative team setting.
Most popular cloud solutions have robust built-in security programs. A MSP (hyperlink to the MSP Blog) can help optimize cloud security, providing security analytics and visibility across the entire cloud environment.
At large volumes, the unit price of servers comes down noticeably in comparison with native data centers. The pay-as-you-use model provides the flexibility that companies seek to scale up or down as required.
