The fastest way to fall down in the cloud is to treat it as a traditional hosting environment. You can’t just swap out servers and reduce your costs while magically boosting performance. Cloud requires a new approach, which is where we come in.
Give a man a fish, you’ll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, you’ll feed him for a lifetime. The same is true of cloud. There’s no value in transitioning if you’re going to be dependent on consultants. We teach best practice of your chosen platform for this reason, and upskill your team to be autonomous as a result.
We don’t believe in shortcuts. Every enhancement you wish to make needs to be optimised, outcome led and future-proofed. That’s why our team take the time to understand the objective, offer solutions and then define the changes as IaC (infrastructure as code).
You may want to do things that simply aren’t in your best interest. But, don’t worry. We’ll be vocal when we don’t think it’s right for you. And that’s a good thing. See, we believe in arguing our case, preventing miscommunication and ensuring a smooth operation.
Our experience spans across multiple industries and sectors allowing us to provide more accurate guidance on maximising cloud benefits within your field.
In short, it’s everything that you consider to be computing services performed over the internet. Whether that’s servers, storage, databases or software, provided it’s within ‘the cloud’, it’s cloud computing.
While this sounds like a fairly minor difference, the benefits say otherwise:
Provided you adopt cloud according to AWS or Azure best practice, you’re assured to have infrastructure that optimises your service and modernises applications. Though this depends on whether or not you establish factors in operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, and cost-optimisation.
You can also enhance and maintain all of your applications without having to routinely update software or synchronise the various platforms you’ve built each of them on.
Cloud works on a consumption-based model. That means that you are only charged for what you use. No ridiculous renewal costs or installation and maintenance charges – all fees will be covered in your cloud billing.
As part of our service, we can manage your billing and help simplify the costs even more to ensure that you never go over budget.
Provided your infrastructure is watertight, your cloud solution won’t suffer any wear and tear. Forget hardware solutions that gradually degrade over time. Cloud modernises applications and continues to evolve provided you maintain it properly.
This maintenance is a skill we believe all cloud-adoptees should have. Without it, you run the risk of your cloud set-up turning into a legacy system in all but name.
