Looking for a cloud managed service provider to support your cloud based systems? Our cloud consultants can look after your complete cloud environment ensuring the basics, such as continuity planning, are in place whilst optimising your current architecture for cost and performance. Whether you need advice on cloud strategy and architecture, a review and optimisation of your current cloud solution or ongoing proactive maintenance to ensure your business critical systems keep running securely, we can help.

Cloud managed service challenges

Spiralling cost

You have an existing cloud solution that seems to be costing you far more than anticipated; potentially caused by systems running without the right sized services that have been configured in an optimal way.

Unused services

You are paying for services that are not being used. Your cloud infrastructure has spiralled out of control and needs rightsizing.

Security by design

Your cloud operation has been hardened and doesn’t have the relevant security protections in place.

Disaster recovery

Your disaster recovery policy is outdated or untested. You are unsure how quickly you could recover a service outage.

Data integrity

You don't have the confidence that the regular data checks are being actioned by your existing IT department.

Critical security patches

Your systems are not receiving regular security patches which are exposing your data.

Cloud maintenance services

Cloud review and optimisation

We can help reduce complexity in your existing cloud infrastructure to optimise costs and streamline operational processes. Using workload diagnostics and operational reviews against design and configuration best practices, we will review your business processes and identify any gaps in the management, configuration, monitoring and optimisation of cloud-based systems. As part of this service we can help with cost optimisation, security and compliance, monitoring and logging solutions, as well as dashboarding and performance metrics.

Cloud maintenance

At the core of our cloud maintenance services is a yearly plan of pro-active checks that need to take place to ensure your cloud deployment is safe and secure. The schedule includes:- cost optimisation, performance monitoring, instance upgrades, database upgrades, server patches, software patches and DR testing.

Cloud strategy & architecture

Our cloud consultants are fully certified and can create an architecture design that will enable your systems to scale efficiently and cost effectively. We start with a cloud health check to analyse your current architecture and make recommendations for improvements. Find out more about our cloud consultancy services.
