Planning service
How the planning service works
We design and build custom-made cloud-platform infrastructure to support everything from individual applications to entire corporate infrastructures. We can start from scratch, or review your current architecture and align it with industry best practice and platform-specific optimisations for better performance, resilience, scalability and cost-effectiveness.

Our services include: (1) A review of your existing environment with recommendations against best practice and potential enhancements and cost savings. (2) Detailed design: Determine the most appropriate architectures and tools including (a) Infrastructure-as-Code for rapid cloud-independent infrastructure build and re-build - ideal for creating disposable environments for testing, or for performing complete pre-build of infrastructure in alternative regions or platforms. (b) Containerisation to provide developers with confidence their deployments will work across multiple test/staging/production environment on heterogenous hardware and platforms (c) Container deployment orchestration, automation and scaling. (d) Continuous Delivery / Continuous Integration technologies for multi-tiered environments. (e) Horizontal scaling and service decoupling for efficient deployment of resources and elimination of single-points-of-failure. (f) Firewall, security design, load handling and DDoS defence (g) Deployment planning by our PRINCE2 and Agile certified project management team

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
We have experience migrating organisations from existing in-house on-premise systems, pre-existing proprietary hosting platforms, and across public cloud regions and heterogenous public cloud providers.

Migration can be de-risked by forming the cloud infrastructure using Infrastructure-as-Code to rapidly build and tear down the environment for testing prior to migration cut-over.
