Migrating to the Cloud
If you are looking to migrate your on-premises systems to the cloud,
you have come to the right place.
Is your business in the cloud?
When we talk about the ‘cloud,’ we are referring to the third-party data centres where companies can shift (migrate) their digital assets and access them remotely over the internet.
Managed247 has over 14 years of experience helping customers migrate their on-premise enterprise architecture to the cloud. If this is something you are considering, we are here to help.
We are a Microsoft Solutions Partner delivering next-generation cloud applications to businesses and can provide 1st line to 3rd line support via our own certified consultants and global delivery for Microsoft Cloud Managed Services.
The Benefits of Cloud Computing
On-site data centres offer limited storage capacity and they are often difficult and costly to maintain. This is one of the reasons why many businesses migrate their data, applications, and project information to cloud-based infrastructures, owned by such cloud providers as Microsoft Azure. They can then access as much storage as they need without having to invest in dedicated hardware for their on-site premises.
This is clearly cost-effective as business owners don’t need to purchase additional hardware for storage or hire supporting staff to manage a physical infrastructure. As their data is held securely in the cloud, they don’t have to worry about costs related to disaster recovery either.
Security is a major benefit of cloud computing as many cloud services use specialised cloud security tools to protect the business resources stored in their data centres.
Due to the high volume of security threats that affect businesses on a regular basis, knowing that your sensitive data and workload information is protected can provide great peace of mind. As security patches are carried out regularly by most cloud providers, you can also be assured that your information is protected from new and evolving security threats.
Another benefit is compliance. As you will likely know already, businesses have to protect the sensitive data in their care to ensure compliance with the regulations and legislations that are governed by bodies within their industry.
Non-compliance, be that purposeful or accidental, can lead to costly fines, reputational damage, and even imprisonment if a data breach occurs. As information stored on the cloud is safely secured, it’s easier to remain compliant, so this can give peace of mind to business owners and their customers.
There are challenges when migrating to the cloud, as it can be time-consuming and labour-intensive due to the careful planning needed.
This is why we recommend our services to you. We will assess your readiness for the cloud and assist you with the transition to a cloud environment that is aligned with your needs.
We can also offer you ongoing support after you have migrated to the cloud and advise you further on your options.
