Companies embracing IaaS are seeing results:
As identified in IDC’s Whitepaper, Enabling Cloud for All Compute Needs, Cloud has lowered the cost of experimentation and pilots. Infrastructure modernisation is a key component of digital transformation, and organisations in the early stages of this journey are already seeing differentiated business results.
For example, as identified by IDC in their paper, running applications on public cloud IaaS makes it easy for the companies to use new technologies and capabilities such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and dynamic scaling.
Difficult to manage daily IT priorities let alone drive digital transformation:
It is hard for many CIOs and IT Leaders to keep on top of day-to-day IT support issues let alone embrace these new Cloud capabilities to drive their digital transformation and support their business strategy. Along with this is the rapid pace of new service development on platforms such as Microsoft Azure which introduces complexity and further challenges to upskill, resource and embrace the benefits offered by cloud compute, storage and networking,
We can help:
A Microsoft Azure accredited MSP, such as Foundation IT (FiT) who provide Managed IaaS Solutions, means this complexity and any infrastructure hassle is managed on your behalf. Also, when reflecting on which workloads should be the first to be migrated to an IaaS service, and what the operational and financial overheads associated with running workloads on private versus public cloud infrastructure are, again an accredited IT partner such as FiT can help. An accredited partner can also help you minimise new license investments and rapidly pilot on Azure to understand and take advantage of its benefits.
Take your first step to migrate to Microsoft Azure:
To help you assess your on-premise resources and to give you an understanding of what can be migrated to Microsoft Azure and the associated cloud costs of doing so why not take advantage of our Azure Migration Assessment and Migration Report service and accelerate your journey to Microsoft Azure. As part of the exercise we work with you to identify where the opportunities and risks are as part of any cloud migration project.
We run a series of tools against your existing environment and produce a report which gives you a high-level view of which of your existing workloads could move immediately to cloud and identifies where there might be some challenges or risks.
A report which provides you with a view of your existing environment mapped to Microsoft Azure from a cost and compatibility perspective. The report will highlight the workloads that can be moved immediately to Azure as well as those that will present migration or compatibility challenges.
Any migration needs a detailed plan behind it. This is often the first step in identifying what your migration plan might look like, where the quick wins are and where the challenges might lie.
