Purposeful Clouds takes a sound architectural and holistic approach in transitioning your business to the Cloud. We work with your team to clarify and gain understanding of your business requirements, and we look at the value various services and processes that IT delivers to the business. Then we map where they might transition across all three layers of the Cloud: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS). Right from the start, we consider your unique security and compliance requirements. We next create an optimal Cloud architecture and road map using the right combination of Public, Private, Community or Hybrid Cloud solutions.
The goal: for each of your workloads, determine if it should go into the Cloud now. If so, where in our Cloud Cube does it belong.
We are often asked why we strongly recommend all of these strategy and planning services. For a real-life answer, review a real Public Cloud failure.
We leverage our pre-built popular Cloud solution Blueprints. Based on your specific requirements we customize these Blueprints to deliver highly competitive, secure and robust solutions. Our simple approach uses an iterative process from strategy through delivery, providing measurable benefits and strategic focus throughout.
One of the most important and difficult choices in moving to the Cloud is the choice of a Cloud Service Provider. We use a four-step process and measure candidate CSPs on seven different criteria.
