Cloud Adoption Services


Leading organizations need IT to be a business enabler, focused more on core business goals and less on maintaining infrastructure. Meanwhile, industry analysts continue to report that IT organizations spend more than 70% of their time just keeping the lights on. Cloud computing solutions enable IT to address these challenges and significantly reduce costs and maintenance resources.

Amazon Web Services (AWSTM) is the clear leader in Gartner’s cloud solutions magic quadrant1 and we understands the opportunities and the challenges associated with the cloud.

Working closely with our clients we address concerns around cloud security, cost and performance, and deliver a solution tailored to each organization’s requirements and unique complement of application workloads.

Cloud Advisory Services

Through surveys, workshops and custom score cards we identify and classify workloads that are suitable for migration to the cloud. We recommend the right AWS solution for your organization and develop a roadmap including detailed ROI. Initial workloads for cloud migration. Include:




• Test and Development using AWS EC2TM (Elastic Compute Cloud)

• Backup and Recovery using AWS S3TM (Simple Storage Service)

• Data Archival using Amazon Glacier Cloud Enablement Services

To ensure the suitability of cloud for your organization we will implement a proof of concept (PoC) running on AWS to demonstrate functionality and overall return on investment (ROI). In particular we examine:

• Security with solutions such as Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

• Price/Performance – helping customers select the right AWS solution for the right workload. For example AWS EC2 configuration for developers and high performance workloads alike, leveraging Provisioned IOPS and instance types.

Cloud Implementation Services

For selected workloads we will install, migrate, configure, integrate & enable IT to run the applications in the AWS Cloud.

Cloud Managed Services

We provide ongoing support, administration and optimization of your AWS Cloud deployment with defined SLAs, to maximize application performance and minimize operational costs.
