Mapping data landscapes against cloud provider sprawl

Cloud Assessment Service

One of the benefits of Cloud based services is how quick and easy they are to set up and commission.  This is great for organisations looking to increase agility, reduce cost and speed up development times.  However, this ease of entry can lead to an expanding landscape of Cloud provided services, with many organisations using Azure, Office 365, and AWS concurrently for example.  All have their own geographic locations, sometimes in different countries which may be outside the UK.  Alternatively, we often find different Cloud Providers sharing the same Datacentre, which can cause issues for DR if one provider is being used to back-up another.  The key question is therefore, what is the potential impact on the service that IT provides to the business and the SLA’s it has signed up to.

Through our Cloud Assessment we enable companies to map their data-landscape to the geographic spread of their Cloud Providers by focusing on the following areas;

  • Business objectives
  • Operational structure and service level frameworks
  • Current Infrastructure Assessment (Private Cloud)
  • Cloud Service Provider Assessment (Public Cloud)
  • Network topology and resilience (Hybrid Cloud)

The outcome of the assessment is a detailed report with comparisons against industry best practice.

If you are concerned that your IT estate is starting to leak across different cloud providers, and aren’t sure if this causes a risk to your business, contact PerformIT for a free initial assessment.
