Turn your ideas into innovation with trusted 848’s Cloud and Hybrid Platforms

Today, 94% of companies use the cloud in some way, but every company moves to the cloud at a different pace and has different strategies and priorities for what needs to be deployed to the cloud. Some will adopt cloud computing to solve an urgent business need; others will have a longer term, planful cloud migration. Either way, the ongoing effort to improve business operations and create an agile development process can have organisations working in IT environments that span across on-premises, multicloud, and edge infrastructure.

Every business has its own reasons for migration. Whatever your reasons are, we can achieve your goals successfully by following a well-structured approach that addresses your various  technical and business needs.

Cloud Migration

Cloud migration is the process of moving data, applications or other business elements to a cloud computing environment. There are various types of cloud migrations an enterprise can perform. One common model is the transfer of data and applications from a local, on-premises data center to the public cloudMigrating hundreds or thousands of workloads to the cloud requires a phased approach that includes assessment, readiness and planning, migrations, and operations, with each phase building on the previous one. At 848, we can ensure a smooth migration with minimum business disruption. We have decades of experience when it comes to migrating to the cloud, so be assured your in good hands!

So what are the benefits of cloud migration?

 

Flexibility: No business offering experiences the same level of demand by the same number of users all the time. When your apps see fluctuations in traffic, cloud infrastructure allows you to scale up or down to meet demand so you use only the resources you ne

Productivity: Your cloud provider can manage the complexities of your infrastructure so you can focus on productivity. What’s more, the simplicity and remote accessibility of most cloud solutions means your team is finally able to focus on what matters — like growing your business.

Scalability: As your business grows, so will your databases, analytics, and other snowballing workloads. The cloud offers the ability to expand within existing (or with additional provisioned) infrastructure so applications have room to grow without impacting performance.

Security: By storing data centrally, the cloud offers more security than data centers. Most cloud providers also offer built-in features including security analytics, periodic updates, and cross-enterprise visibility.

Agility: Part of growth is remaining flexible enough to respond to rapid changes in technology resources. Cloud adoption provides this by drastically reducing the time it takes to procure new inventory and storage.

Profitability: The cloud follows a pay-per-use model. No need to pay for more than you need or to continually invest in updating, maintaining, training on, and making space for physical servers.

Hybrid cloud and infrastructure

Hybrid infrastructure connects at least one public cloud and one private cloud. It provides orchestration, management and application portability between them to create a single, flexible, optimal cloud infrastructure to run your workloads. 

Using a hybrid cloud allows you to scale IT resources and usage up and down with ease. This eliminates the overpaying or having to make massive capital expenditures to handle short-term spikes in demand. It also allows your business to free up local resources for more sensitive data or applications if you need.

You only pay for the things you need instead of having to purchase, program, and maintain additional resources and equipment that could remain idle over long periods of time.

Hybrid cloud computing is a “best of all possible worlds” platform, delivering all the benefits of cloud computing—flexibility, scalability, and cost efficiencies—with the lowest possible risk of data exposure.

Security and governance

IT Security is fundamental for any business, it’s core function is to protect the devices your staff and customers use (smartphones, laptops, tablets and computers), and the services they access from theft or damage. It’s also about preventing unauthorised access to the vast amounts of personal information you store either on these devices or online via the cloud. We utilise only the best security technologies to keep your business safe from cyber criminals.

Security governance is the means by which you control and direct your organisation’s approach to security. When done well, security governance will effectively coordinate the security activities of your business. It enables the flow of security information and decisions around your organisation.

There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to governance that can work for every organisation. We will help you establish the security risk management roles and decision making processes that work for you (remembering that some business’ may have to comply with mandated requirements).

What is a Hybrid Cloud?

Hybrid cloud is a computing environment that combines public cloud and on-premises infrastructure including private cloud by allowing data and applications to be shared between them. Hybrid cloud gives organisations more deployment options and greater flexibility to scale computing resources and take advantage of cloud innovation while offering interoperability with on-premises environment. With multicloud and edge computing emerging in recent years, hybrid cloud is evolving to include multicloud environments and edge infrastructure.

Organisations choose a hybrid cloud approach for many reasons, such as meeting regulatory and data sovereignty requirements, maximizing on-premises technology investment, addressing low latency and edge workloads, and increasing resilience and business continuity.

What is a Multicloud?

Multicloud is the use of multiplecloud computing services from more than one cloud provider —whether it is a private or public cloud—in a heterogeous environment. Many businesses adopt a multicloud strategy to gain greater flexibility and mitigate risk because it gives them the ability to choose different services from different cloud providers best suited for a specific task or take advantage of services offered by a particular cloud provider in a particular geography.

Multicloud requires skillsets in understanding different clouds, which becomes challenging when companies are facing a shortage of cloud talent. A multicloud approach also adds operational complexity. Therefore, it’s important to choose a cloud platform such as Azure that embraces a multicloud approach and offers product capabilities that help significantly simplify multicloud management.

What is edge computing?

Edge computing is to bring the computing power of the cloud to IoT devices close to where the data resides to reduce latency and gain real-time insights. The proliferation of smart sensors and connected devices, combined with advanced cloud technologies such as machine learning and AI, makes edge computing a reality.

With edge computing, customers can run VMs, containers, and data services at edge locations. By moving certain workloads to the edge of the network, devices spend less time communicating with the cloud, react more quickly to local changes, operate reliably even in extended offline periods, and can deliver immersive user experience through highly responsive and contextually aware apps.
