Design

Infrastructure. Multi-cloud. Solutions that fit your organisation best

A blueprint for success

Our professional services team is experienced in designing both cloud services and on-premises deployments. While each requires in-depth knowledge of different technologies, the processes involved are the same. It's this design approach that helps us successfully create your best-fit, most secure solution, whether it's IT infrastructure or a cloud service.

How we work

How we work

We partner with vendors that add value with 'best-of-breed' technologies. We're completely independent, however. Important because it means we're free to create your best-fit design. We use assessments and workshops to help us understand your environment, your requirements and the correct sizing. Detailed designs and migration plans ensure we map the entire process.

Multi-cloud designs

Multi-cloud designs

We're able to offer both pre-validated 'quick start' designs or bespoke 'advanced' multi-cloud designs, courtesy of our cloud professional services team. First we map your organisation to what your best-fit cloud might look like (a process we call 'Business Cloud Alignment'). Once we've done that, design can begin.

The design process

The design process

We start by considering functional architecture, followed by a more detailed design, which we'll work through via a workshop. Finally, we create high-level designs that include components, such as migration conditions, network recommendations, required licencing and subscription models and timings. Only when all parties validate the designs in a further workshop will migration start.

Security by design

Security by design

Our 'security by design' principle means we consider security from the ground up, baking (designing) it into everything we do. The result? Safe hybrid environments that consist of both private and public clouds integrated with on-premises infrastructure.

Physical and logical security layers

Physical and logical security layers

We design physical security layers, such as high quality tier-3 data centres, guaranteed data location and geographically dispersed network operations centres (NOCs). We also design logical security layers, such as 2-factor authentication, SIEM (security information and event management) and hypervisor level AV (anti-virus).
