Cloud implementations from single cluster to multi-site in different geographies

When you are looking to implement a cloud, all clouds are not created equal. You need to take into account a lot of variables that would generate the perfect mix of hardware, software and telco infrastructure to meet your business needs, within your budget limits and what’s most important, with the flexibility of growth and adjustment.

We’ve executed dozens of private, public and hybrid cloud implementations following a perfected methodology that is vendor agnostic and applicable to widely used standards for VMware, KVM and RHEV.

Our Process Outline

1 Business objective specification

Overall IT follows business, we define in agreement with our customer what are the business objectives, priorities, timing and budget.

2 Sizing

Every cloud provider tries to oversell in sizing, reaching the point of 80% consumption in a business cloud it’s a tricky proposition. That’s why the simplest solution is to over-size. We take a step further and balance your budget with the rightly sized cloud.

3 Implementation

This is where we build our magic, and get everything ready and configured according to specs.

4 Security Hardening

It’s your business and our business at risk. We make sure in this step your cloud keeps alive in a see of threat.

5 Monitoring

At this point we need to start keeping tabs on everything, from CPU, RAM and HD utilization to Application and Database performance.

6 Management

You manage it, we solve fires. We manage it, everything is taking care for you. We’ll decide our adequate level of involvement.

The journey to Hybrid Cloud:

Public Cloud

1 Public Cloud

This is generally the first step companies take. They initially establish some type of workload in a public cloud provider, for example to host their website, implement an ordering system, or satisfy some externally connected requirement. Those hosting providers evolved from isolated machines, into VPSs (Virtual Private Servers) to then arrive at the virtualization concept we know today.

Private Cloud

2 Private Cloud

After having an online presence and understanding workloads can be run efficiently by a third party with virtualization, organizations start virtualizing themselves and consolidating their workloads in hypervisor platforms like VMware vSphere/ESXi or Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and some organizations establish a methodical and self-served method of consumption and automation to consume those resources.

Hybrid Cloud

3 Hybrid Cloud

Once companies have a foothold both in public and private clouds, questions like these ones start to trickle in:
Can we interconnect them safely? Where is the optimal location for this or that workload?. This way, Hybrid Cloud is born.
