Are you turning to the Cloud because of aging infrastructures or performance issues? Either way, we can help.

Our Cloud expertise runs deep

We can help with:

Cloud Infrastructure Architecture

We'll start by developing architecture diagrams of the proposed system. The setup may include load balancers, a file storage solution, a caching system, a content delivery network (CDN) service as well as backups. If a high availability setup is required, then a failover mechanism may also be architected.

Architecture steps:

  • Run a performance analysis
  • Identify your goals, requirements and constraints
  • Develop a security threat model
  • Develop a cloud architecture based on your specs

Building Cloud Infrastructure

We help with execution to save you time and money:

  • Select the appropriate OS, load balancer, and other infrastructure pieces
  • Automate the build with Terraform and SaltStack components for easy re-deployments and management
  • Set up resilient backups

Cloud Migration

Avoid pitfalls: let us walk you through a time-tested series of steps:

  • Determine the best migration approach for your organization's needs
  • Determine the most appropriate Cloud platform to fulfill your requirements
  • Document moving pieces such as SQL databases, LDAP repositories or third-party web APIs
  • Refactor, simplify and optimize your infrastructure
  • Develop a sequential timeline of the migration activities

Automating Infrastructure Provisioning

  • Spin up hundreds of servers at once with the same configurations using Saltstack
  • Get the same dependencies installed on the machines each time
  • Eliminate error-prone hand-crafted hardware configurations, from VPC to networking to firewalls, subnets, VLANs, load balancers, security groups, internet gateways, EC2 instances, content distribution network (CDN), etc.

Automating Infrastructure Management

  • Leverage public clouds elasticity tools to easily and effortlessly scale horizontally
  • Easily add and remove app servers, web servers or caching servers to your load balancer
  • Connect multiple servers to the same database
  • Share blob storage across various instances
  • Simplify the management of relational database services, load balancers, Cloudfront CDN, etc.
  • Automate replication via RDS, database backups, snapshots and snapshot cleanups
  • Specify Access Control Lists (ACLs)
  • Ensure compliance of each piece of the infrastructure
  • Eliminate server upgrades altogether
  • Run queries across your infrastructure to find out if the servers are healthy
  • Get a scripted inventory of servers, CPU, RAM, etc.

Scripting Repeatable Code Deployments

  • Eliminate manual release steps
  • Release apps into multiple regions on Amazon, or to multiple Cloud providers
  • Roll out continuous deployment
  • Automate backups before releases for easy rollback
