Getting started with the public cloud

By opening up a world of possibilities, the public cloud offers many advantages. However, like a private cloud, it shouldn't be seen as a goal or solution in its own right. A shared environment like the public cloud can be an attractive solution, but needs to fit your business context, requirements, goals and ambitions. Those parameters are therefore where we always start when working with the public cloud.

Why use public cloud?

In order to take full advantage of the public cloud, it’s important to begin with a dialogue aimed at building a picture of the business context and requirements. That picture can then be used to guide solution design. In some cases, a hybrid solution or a mix of private and public cloud services may be better suited to an organisation’s wishes, ambitions, goals and security needs.

Cloud-agnostic approach

The public cloud is one of the standard building blocks we use in the managed cloud solutions we design, build and operate. We work on a cloud-agnostic basis, where we’re not tied to any one solution or platform. That means we can start by learning about your objectives, ambitions and strategy before considering which cloud building blocks provide the best fit.

Advantages of the public cloud

Speed, convenience and flexibility make the public cloud great for a new project, business idea or application. However, oversight and control are vital for preventing fragmentation and a raft of security and management headaches.

Right framework

The public cloud therefore forms part of a wider and more extensive framework of interrelated agreements, requirements, ambitions and objectives. Discussion of the options provides a basis for moving certain elements to the public cloud or starting migration. Your organisation can then take advantage of the public cloud on the basis of clear arrangements and the highest security, privacy and compliance standards.
