Migrating to an IT infrastructure that is flexible, scalable and cost-effective, while operating an “as a service” model, is becoming a necessity rather than an option. Business units and application owners are demanding more. More flexibility. More resiliency. More options. All this with a constrained budget. We understand these challenges, and take a holistic approach to designing, architecting and migrating your IT assets to a private or hybrid cloud model.
Virtualization & Planning
Virtualization is the key to harnessing the benefits of private and hybrid clouds. Our services begin with this strategic initiative that must be done right in order to ease the transition to a well-orchestrated cloud platform. We have taken many customers’ x86 assets to a 100% virtualized state through our Enterprise Virtualization and Cloud Migration services.
Our cloud architecture team will work with your stakeholders to craft a custom roadmap to guide your efforts to the next-generation data center that incorporates a as-a-service private and hybrid cloud strategy. We will work with you to select the management and orchestration platforms that best suit your requirements. Our PR actioners are experienced in all the major platforms available today.
Accelerated Deployment & Migration
Upon approval by your stakeholders and the selection of a cloud management platform we engage our engineering and process teams to support a rapid implementation. Our proven delivery kits contain hundreds of baseline work-flows and related code that allow our teams to get a head start. We use a set of proven methodologies to ensure the successful configuration and deployment of your cloud management platform.
Many of our customers engage us mid-stream, or when their projects have run into delays or issues. We have successfully mitigated project issues and accelerated the rollout of cloud management platforms.
In conjunction with the rollout of the cloud management platform, the migration of assets into a private or external cloud platform is a critical task that has traditionally presented significant risk. Most service providers lack the expertise around the migration process including business-owner communications, scheduling, validation and risk mitigation during conversion. Our Cloud Migration practice has successfully virtualized thousands of servers globally using our proprietary methodologies and tools.
