How does it work?
Prior to migration to the cloud, we will offer an optional audit and detailed report of your existing on-premise infrastructure to ensure that your new virtual environment is a perfect fit for your business. You may also take this opportunity to implement a healthy refresh and/or upgrade for some of the applications themselves. Either way, Cloud Compute has been designed to make the transition to cloud as simple as possible for your business.
So, once the virtual servers have been chosen; in terms of the optimum number of CPUs, memory and storage capacity needed for the applications themselves; the servers can be provisioned rapidly and securely.
This includes all the required connectivity options such as public internet, firewall rules, private subnet and more, just like a traditional on-premise environment, with options for load balance, virtual private network access and backup.
Once this is all securely setup, the service can be commissioned and the applications installed and your data migrated – a process that is simply determined by the size of the applications and amount of data that your business needs to be uploaded.
If your organisation is a large one, depending on circumstances, it’s quite common practice if you decide to phase your migration to the cloud with some application servers remaining on premise or in a data centre for a period of time. In this ‘hybrid’ environment, you can integrate both environments to support your business and then migrate the remaining elements as and when required.
