How we will help

We will help you make the most of your cloud adoption with minimal business disruption.

We will help you migrate resources and data to the cloud, and then optimise your usage and costs so you don't pay more than you should.

We will also design and develop cloud-based software solutions using combinations of bespoke software, Azure low-code/no-code services such as Logic Apps and serverless pay-per-execution features like Azure Functions and WebJobs.

Backup and Disaster Recovery

We will help you implement a comprehensive backup, restore, and disaster recovery system that is appropriate to your budget and needs using the services native to Microsoft Azure.

Unfamiliar with the cloud?

The cloud is essentially a mechanism by which you can "rent" IT resources on a pay-as-you-go basis. Some terms are explained below.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

IaaS is how you can complement or replace your on-premises hardware with virtualised systems in the cloud.

What's wrong with using your own infrastructure? Consider how much time it takes to specify, order, take delivery of, install and configure a physical server. A few weeks? Then think of the effort to maintain it, and securely dispose of it at the end of its life.

How long would a similarly specified Virtual Machine (VM) take to install? A few minutes. When you're finished with it, you simply delete it.

Platform as a Service (PaaS)

PaaS means that Azure manages the resources you want to use as a "platform" upon which you (or we!) build your line-of-business applications. It means you don't even have to concern yourself with managing a suite of virtual machines.

Instead of a virtual web server, you host your website on an App Service. Instead of a SQL VM you use SQL Azure. Instead of a file server VM, you use Azure Storage. The focus is on the system, not on infrastructure.

Software as a Service (SaaS)

Nowadays, we're all used to SaaS, even if we may not know it by that term.

Simply put, if you pay a subscription to use software or services hosted online, you are using SaaS. Examples of SaaS are Microsoft 365, Quickbooks and Hubspot.
