Public Cloud

Public Cloud offers the ability to shift from a “keep the lights on” operational management focus to strategic initiatives that drive the business forward and enhance the customer experience.

Public Cloud has become the preferred platform for digital transformation initiatives. Businesses are now able to realize these initiatives with greater speed and scale through DevOps and infrastructure as code enabled by public cloud platforms.

For most enterprises, public cloud is no longer an “if” consideration, but a “how” challenge.

While Public Cloud promises transformative infrastructure solutions to spur the growth of your business, it also requires careful consideration of the change required among your staff, process and applications to ensure the full promise is realized.  

p1 Technologies is your Pro Certified cloud architect partner with broad experience in public cloud design, deployment and management, and a proven process that ensures our customers successfully and reliably accelerate their public cloud transformation.  

p1 Technologies employs four stages of cloud adoption as part of a customized plan to ensure your enterprise maximizes the benefits and eliminates the challenges of migration:

1. Assessment


It’s extremely easy to activate an AWS account, spin up a few compute and storage buckets, and provide a test bed in short order for your development team.   While such experimentation is a common path to Public Cloud for many organizations, realizing the full transformative value of public cloud is more complex than the first swipe of a credit card.Broad adoption of public cloud across your enterprise for production applications requires careful planning and a willingness to take a transformational journey.  A journey which begins with p1’s Cloud Readiness Assessment. This proprietary methodology is used to explore the fit and value of your existing application infrastructure and/or workloads for public cloud deployment

2. Architecture and Deployment


Whether you’re architecting for a “Cloud Native” application, looking to re-platform an existing application’s architecture, or simply want to shift a part of your infrastructure like Backup or Disaster Recovery to the Public Cloud, p1 Technologies’ team of Pro Certified architects will help you design and deploy a highly reliable, optimized and secure cloud infrastructure using proven methodologies.

p1 Uses the AWS Well Architected Framework and its 5 pillars to deliver, monitor and optimize your Public Cloud solution:

Operational Excellence
Security
Reliability
Performance Efficiency
Cost Optimization

3. Migrate


Migrating key workloads to public cloud allows you to shift focus from operations and infrastructure management to high value initiatives for business innovation and differentiation.   

Cloud migrations, while commonplace, require careful planning and adherence to a proven practice of execution throughout the process.

p1 Technologies’ architects have guided many customers through migration of an array of crucial on-premises workloads to public cloud, and we will help you too.

4. Optimize


Almost as quickly as you realize the significant competitive advantages and operational benefits of public cloud, you’ll also see the need to for continuous monitoring and optimization of your cloud infrastructure. With nearly infinite scale and immediate availability of resources, it’s easy to see how your business can trade server sprawl for cloud sprawl without careful oversight and governance.

When you partner with the p1 Technologies cloud team to build and manage your public cloud, we’ll start by working with you to architect a plan for a secure and discreet administration from Day One.
