Moving To The Cloud
We set-up all our client sites, apps and services in the cloud. We work heavily in the cloud, from a lift and shift migration to a small or large scale set-up. There are tremendous reasons for migrating to the cloud including security, speed, scalability and performance.
Moving from an on-premise ('on-prem') set-up to the cloud can be daunting. Cloud hosting with global providers such as Google Cloud Platform ('GCP') and Amazon Web Services ('AWS') means all your data is automatically encrypted at rest with either 128 to 256 bit encryption. At every layer the cloud has security measures from infrastructure, network, endpoint, data, access management, application and security operations there isn't any area that isn't serviced.
We can take advantage of blazing fast infrastructure with built-in autoscaling. In addition, you'll be set-up on world class infrastructure sitting on top of a gigantic private fiber network connecting the world. At this scale and being cross geographical regions it would be difficult for even the world's largest countries and governments set-up. There is no close alternative or second option. Never rack a local server again, talk to us about switching to the cloud today.
It's difficult to scale when you need to spin up a new instance or rack a new server to take on new users or deploy more resourcing. With the cloud comes scale and with scale comes the ability to do things we can't achieve without it for instance virtually unlimited storage and compute power that the largest organisations in the world would use. With data becoming more and more readily available you'll need to quickly look at scalability for your organisation.
Being on the cloud means teams are working around the clock to ensure all network layers are operational and functional at all times. This means higher up-times and better SLAs. Companies simply do not have the budget, capability, knowledge and around the clock expertise to compete with global giants and support such infrastructure. In addition, further performance benefits can be added instantly via Virtual Machine Instances including system memory size, virtual CPU and maximum persistent disk capacity at the click of a button.
