Simple First Steps to Azure Adoption – Put Cloud to the Test

We provide a range of attractive options to allow you to take a cost effective first step to enjoying managed Azure infrastructure as a service.

 Azure for business advantage

 Hassle free Azure Infrastructure

 Managed IaaS & DaaS

CLOUD BACKUP & RESTORE PROOF OF CONCEPT

What is it…

The cloud backup and restore proof of concept gives you the opportunity to protect up to 5 physical, virtual or cloud based workloads on Azure for 1 month free of charge.

What we do…

  1. Setup Azure Tenant
  2. Nominate and protect up to 5 workloads using Azure Backup
  3. Simulate the restore of machines, folders and individual files
  4. Report on backup performance, RTO and RPO’s
  5. Provide commercial analysis on Azure Backup for wider estate

What you get… 

  • A tested and operational, cloud based, backup service
  • An understanding of backup and recovery performance in Azure
  • The supporting information to compile a business case for wider adoption

Why do it…

  • Remove Tape and/or separation of short and long-term data retention platforms
  • Have a secure offsite location for backup
  • Removes secondary backup locations
  • Consolidates infrastructure and storage platforms
  • Enhances ransomware protection
  • Gives you an opportunity to experiment with Azure services

DISASTER RECOVERY TRIAL IN AZURE

What is it…

The DR trial gives you the ability to test Microsoft Azure’s capability to protect workloads and simulates a disaster recovery scenario so you can assess Azure’s effectiveness as part of a DR and business continuity plan.

What we do…

  1. Setup your Azure Tenant
  2. Protect a workload using Azure Site Recovery (ASR)
  3. Simulate a Disaster Recovery scenario and fail over to Azure
  4. Compile a report on DR simulation exercise

What you get…

  • A working and tested Disaster Recovery as a Service platform
  • An assessment report outlining the performance of the DR simulation
  • Recommendations for optimising DR and business continuity approach

Why do it…

  • Reduce / Remove secondary data centre costs
  • Improve resiliency for businesses who lack DR facilities
  • Maintain continuity of service in the event of a system failure
  • Gain exposure to key Azure services

AZURE MIGRATION REPORT

What is it…

We assess your on premise resources and give you an understanding of what can be migrated to Azure and the associated cloud costs of doing so.  As part of the exercise we work with you to identify where the opportunities and risks are as part of any cloud migration project.

What we do…

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.

What you get…

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.

Why do it…

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.
