As part of our Cloud consulting series, this time we take a close look as hybrid cloud architectural solutions. Cloud computing represents the evolution of processing power, database storage, application hosting and run environment and other IT resources as a utility delivered over the internet and as a ‘pay-as-you-go’ pricing model.
The greater flexibility, agility, mobility of access, faster development and deployment speed for cloud-based applications and, crucially, cost efficiency has made cloud transition of their IT architecture a ‘no brainer’ for a majority of organisations.
Hybrid cloud computing is a significant sub-category of cloud-based IT architecture that combines and orchestrates between public, private, hosted, on-premise cloud resources and sometimes also non-virtual bare metal servers as appropriate to the particular workload needs of an organisation. Hybrid cloud architectures blend the strengths of the different cloud alternatives while negating any weaknesses, such as the requirement for especially robust security and 100% consistency in performance. .
Hybrid cloud consultancy services may be appropriate if your in-house IT resource does not represent the optimal blend of hard skills and experience that mean you can have complete confidence in successfully migrating to the right performance-security-price cloud mix.
Our cloud and hybrid cloud consulting service is headquartered in Munich, Germany and blends German management rigour and engineering processes standards with a dazzling array of nearshored tech skills based in Krakow, Poland and Kiev, Ukraine. We’re in the process of building out a third hub in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Our consultants and hands-on developers serve companies across a wide range of sectors and industries in Munich, across the German hinterland and mainland Europe to as far afield as foggy (that turns out to be a bit of a myth but adding an adjective always sounds better!) London.
Our cloud and hybrid cloud consultants and architecture engineers have particular depth of experience-driven knowledge in:
· Assessing the optimal cloud or hybrid cloud architecture needs based on current and expected future workloads.
· Creating a model cloud architecture that balances optimal performance with any other considerations key to your organisation.
· Set-up of cloud or hybrid cloud architecture.
· Migration of existing IT ecosystem to new cloud or hybrid cloud environment.
· Ongoing maintenance, review and adjustment of cloud or hybrid cloud architecture.
Whether you are just starting to explore the benefits cloud migration could offer your organisation’s performance or are ready to act, drop us a line or pick up the phone.
We’ll be delighted to have a chat to learn a little more about your IT infrastructure needs and give you some preliminary feedback on what sounds like might be a good cloud architecture fit and an overview of the practicalities that would involve.
