Hybrid cloud services

Wherever you are on your cloud journey, we’ll help you determine the right cloud strategy for your business. Whether you’re looking to modernise DC systems, migrate to the public cloud – or both – our innovative cloud services enable you to sustainably unlock value and agility using public cloud, multi-cloud and on-premises platforms.

Cloud connectivity done right – not cloud first

Getting the right mix of on-premises and cloud infrastructure is the key to optimising how you manage workloads across the enterprise. Having evaluated your long-term strategic goals and taken a close look at the organisational realities of your existing IT estate, we’ll help you assess the best possible route for cloud migration and find a solution for your application and infrastructure needs. That includes providing expert advice on when to utilise cloud connectivity services from public cloud providers and when it’s best to build or maintain capabilities elsewhere.

The right cloud adoption solutions for your needs

End to end cloud adoption

Our end-to-end approach is designed to accelerate a risk-free cloud adoption process built around rigorous availability, security, connectivity and reliability standards. Because we work with world-leading hybrid cloud technology providers like Microsoft, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cisco, Hashicorp and VMware, we’re able to create hyper-connected and highly dynamic hybrid cloud environments that unify your infrastructure and free your data to move where it needs to be.

We’ll work with you to clarify the complex, facilitate change and execute an accelerated cloud transformation strategy. After which, we’ll help you manage and optimise your cloud environments, introducing incremental modernisation changes to provide greater visibility, access, protection and control as your business evolves.

We’ll also ensure your cloud architecture is maintained with sustainability in mind. Whether that’s scaling infrastructure down when not needed, removing unused assets and data, or finding the most energy and bandwidth efficient ways to utilise resources.

The right hybrid cloud solutions for your needs

With our help, you’ll be able to:

  • Harness IaaS, PaaS and SaaS platforms to extend your infrastructure and improve your operational agility and efficiency
  • Make smarter architecture choices that won’t limit your future ambitions
  • Build and successfully manage hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments that are secure, stable and easy to scale
  • Find ways to contain cloud costs and complexity, without compromising workload performance
  • Initiate modern workplace platforms designed to support today’s remote and hybrid workforces
  • Deliver the right data, services and applications to the right people – anytime, anywhere

Frequently asked questions

Developing a cloud strategy begins with outlining your key technical and business objectives. Once you’ve identified your key drivers, you’ll be able to decide if your cloud strategy should include public, private or hybrid cloud solutions.

Every company is different, and every app has its own set of considerations that will determine where it is place. Key factors include performance, latency, risk, data needs, network connections and security. We’ll help you identify the best combination of public and private cloud resources, taking into consideration the price-performance, portability, operational and business requirements of each workload.

Hybrid cloud is a cloud computing architecture that combines public cloud, private cloud or third-party services and on-premises services. The resulting IT environment provides a greater degree of flexibility and access to compute power when needed, while enabling companies to keep their private data protected with an on-premises firewall.

There’s no single defined structure for hybrid cloud architecture and companies can combine public cloud services with private infrastructure in a variety of ways. When a business chooses hybrid cloud it shares its data across the public and private infrastructure and the IT needed to keep this data in sync requires specialist management tools.

Without reliable connectivity, however, hybrid cloud can’t function. Most hybrid clouds rely on virtual private networks (VPNs) to encrypt traffic between various clouds and on-premises infrastructure, along with wide area networks (WANs) that provide safter and more reliable connectivity. Finally, application programming interfaces (APIs) connect applications and databases across clouds.

Multicloud is the use of cloud services from more than one cloud vendor. This can be as simple as using software-as-a-service (SaaS) but in the enterprise, it typically refers to using platform-as-a-service (PaaS) or infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) from multiple cloud service providers such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform. The benefits of a multicloud approach are that cloud services can be combined, based on the price, performance, security and compliance needs of an individual business. Plus, organisations can rapidly adopt ‘best of breed’ technologies as they emerge, rather than being tied to the functionality offered by a single vendor at a given time.
