Once upon a time, it was enough to host your websites, applications, database and email on either physical or virtual servers, on-premise or in a managed data centre.
Today’s landscape sees a marked shift away from traditional IT infrastructures towards the large public cloud hyper-scalers – AWS, Azure and GCP amongst others.
The key to success in today’s competitive market is to build modern cloud native applications and leverage the latest in cloud technology. But this is easier said than done.
Moving to the cloud shouldn’t just be a lift and shift. Putting traditional applications onto a modern cloud infrastructure isn’t true cloud and wasn’t how it was intended. Adopting cloud in the right way requires a willingness to change and adopt new working practices. Having a solid strategy, the right skill set and the ability to automate your deployment processes is a must to ensure a successful cloud adoption.
To guarantee you’ll benefit from cloud adoption, you need to understand how it works. You need to achieve a basic level of proficiency or the move will be more costly than it’s worth.
Relying too heavily on contractors can make you increasingly dependent on them, which is both risky and costly. ClearCloud believes in co-delivery, upskilling your inhouse teams throughout our engagement.
At ClearCloud, we can help you determine your cloud goals and map out an adoption plan that ensures you meet them.
Let ClearCloud focus on the infrastructure management whilst your development teams focus on new features, functionalities and innovations to keep your business ahead of the competition.
Choose a platform. Public cloud offerings like AWS and Azure aren’t created equal. They each have their own advantages and drawbacks which need to be carefully considered before investing time and money into them. Choosing correctly from the start will ensure you meet your business objectives – not only now but as time goes on.
With years of collective experience, using both major public cloud platforms, ClearCloud are well-positioned to provide impartial advice based on the types of workload you wish to host.
