Cloud 9 has helped several organizations save money and become more agile by moving their on-premises systems to Microsoft Azure, both Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) solutions. We’ve found that while PaaS solutions provide the greatest long term benefit, IaaS solutions are a quicker path to the cloud. You realize the cost savings sooner, gain valuable experience operating cloud services, and are better positioned to move to PaaS in the future.
We have taken the experience gained and intellectual property created over the years and refined them into a services offering for our customers. The QuickStart for Microsoft Azure IaaS is a short, focused engagement that follows a proven methodology to access, design, plan, and execute your migration to an IaaS cloud solution.
The engagement is led by a Cloud 9 Azure consultant that works closely with your IT resources. The key engagement deliverables are:
A detailed assessment outlining issues/risks with suggested remediation/mitigation steps
A cloud architecture design identifying Azure components, estimated monthly run costs and key operational processes
Detailed migration plan addressing cloud configuration and system cut-over tasks
Your IT service running as Microsoft Windows Azure IaaS solution
Knowledge transfer on Microsoft Windows Azure best practices throughout the engagement
A typical IaaS Quickstart engagement takes three to six weeks to complete, depending upon the complexity of the systems targeted for migration to Azure. Cloud 9 will work closely with you to scope the effort and develop an effort/cost estimate.
