Benefits | costs | risks
To make an informed decision in today’s digital era, an assessment of where your company is at today, how secure it is, and where you want to go is necessary. This process will help you identify the benefits, cost savings, risks, and approaches involved with cloud computing. Through our assessment offering, you’ll be more secure and compliant while utilizing best practices to ensure your fully optimized cloud journey is a success.
For Azure Assessments, we can offer a thorough analysis in 3 key areas:
Aligning your strategy to your end goal from the start will help keep the migration process on track, and Microsoft Azure has various tools to assist in this assessment phase. The Azure Virtual Machine Readiness Assessment will automatically inspect your on premise environment, whether it is physical or virtualized, and provide you with a check list and detailed report on steps you need to take to move your environment to the cloud.
Ultimately, the migration process to Azure or any Cloud for that matter is best handled by experts. As an experienced cloud services partner we can help you prioritize certain workloads and perform a structured risk assessment. Additionally, we can provide you with security and governance, application support, cost management and performance monitoring, backed by a service level agreement (SLA).
Let’s be honest, back-ups and disaster recovery is no one’s favorite topic. However, they are necessary and it’s important they’re done with a plan.
With Microsoft Azure, you can achieve low recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) targets for every major system in your organization, simply and cost-effectively. Eliminate the hassle and cost of secondary datacenters and tap into nearly infinite capacity at a moment’s notice with a cloud-based data recovery solution designed for the needs of enterprises.
We recommend Veeam® Cloud Connect for the Enterprise. VCC-E is an easy, efficient way to get backups offsite to Azure. Microsoft Azure Marketplace, customers can instantly provision cloud backup repositories and automatically move on premises backup archives to Azure. This powerful combination of Microsoft and Veeam provides enterprise customers with cost-effective Azure storage plus the granular recovery capabilities of Veeam.
Also if disaster hits, the last thing you want is to run into a problem. With Azure, you can test your business continuity plans, or run dev-test copies of production workloads in Azure whenever you need to, and without impacting users. Plus, test new versions of applications with copies of live data, and then seamlessly put the new version into production in your datacenter.
I’m sure if we were to take a poll, the virtual desktop or remote worker would be the number one prevailing technology of 2020. Furthermore, if there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s how important having an agile workforce is…enter Windows Virtual Desktop.
Windows Virtual Desktop stands alone because it’s the only virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) that delivers simplified management, multi-session Windows 10 and optimizations for Microsoft 365 applications. Also because it’s built on Azure, it also includes built-in security and compliance.
Disclaimer however, Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) profiles can be tricky to get right the first time. So make sure your working with an engineer or partner who has design and implementation experience. Storage performance is key to success here! Just let us know if we can help you determine the right WVD design with a free assessment?
Office 365 can be one of the most productive tools your company will use, but it isn’t always as simple as people make it out to be. Whether you’re just starting to implement Office 365, or your installation hasn’t been going as planned, there are a few best practices that can make all the difference in your migration success.
This year has also been the year of optimization. More than ever, we’re demanding the most out of our software applications. As you know, there are many paths to migrate data from an on-premises email organization to Microsoft 365 or Office 365.
With a skilled cloud solution provider (CSP), migrating to Office 365 does not require a complete overhaul of IT but an optimization of existing infrastructure.
