Cloud Services & Solutions Packages

  • Public Cloud
  • (Mainstream)
  • Public Cloud is the most commonly used and straight forward type of cloud computing. It is essentially a cloud service where services and infrastructure are provided off-site or over the internet. This is the perfect choice for companies who want to share resources but are not dealing in sensitive information.

    – Easy to set up;
    – Most cost efficient;
    – Easy to use and access;
    – Offers scalability; and
    – Easy to add or drop users.

  • Private Cloud
  • (Enhanced Security & Control)
  • Private Cloud services are maintained on a private network and are required by companies who are dealing with sensitive information or if your business operates in an industry which must conform to strict security and control of data. Perfect choice if your company or organisation requires enhanced security.

    – Organisation specific;
    – Companies that require their own IT environment;
    – Process private data;
    – Carry out sensitive tasks; and
    – Customisable and perfect fit.

  • Hybrid Cloud
  • (Mix of Public & Private Cloud)
  • The Hybrid Cloud offers the best of both worlds combining the use of both public and private offerings. Companies using a hybrid Cloud will use the public cloud for non-sensitive issues taking advantage of ease of use and access and employ a private cloud for more sensitive issues giving you flexibility and peace of mind.

    – Flexibility;
    – Tailored to your individual and unique company requirements; and
    – IT is delivered in the most efficient way possible for every aspect of your business.

Choose the Right Cloud Services Partner for Your Business

Pick your Cloud Partner

In today’s fast-paced technological landscape, the realm of cloud services has rapidly expanded, offering businesses a plethora of options to migrate their IT infrastructure. However, for many small to medium-sized businesses, navigating this complex decision-making process can be daunting and overwhelming.
Selecting the appropriate cloud strategy requires expertise and objectivity to balance the advantages, such as flexibility, scalability, and cost savings, against the challenges, including security risks and management complexities. Moreover, understanding the available cloud tools, potential obstacles, and where to begin can be challenging.

The crucial first step in your cloud migration journey is to partner with a trusted cloud IT provider who possesses the necessary expertise and credentials. This partner will guide you through the array of cloud offerings and help you make informed choices tailored to your specific business needs.

Evaluate Your Existing Cloud Infrastructure with ERS

At ERS, our team of cloud migration specialists has successfully assisted numerous businesses in seamlessly transitioning their infrastructure to the cloud. Our process encompasses everything from crafting the initial cloud migration plan to overseeing and managing the fully transitioned cloud environment. Working closely with business owners, we thoroughly review their current infrastructure investments, including hardware, application portfolios, and network architecture, to assess the potential benefits of a cloud migration. The outcome of this evaluation is a comprehensive analysis plan that equips business owners with the necessary insights for making well-informed decisions.

Our analysis addresses both technical aspects, like assessing application performance in the cloud, as well as non-technical budgetary concerns, such as cost-effectiveness relative to existing infrastructure investments. As part of this process, we meticulously review all current business applications to determine their suitability for migration to the cloud. While compatibility typically poses no major issues for modern applications running on up-to-date operating systems, we pay close attention to the entirety of the client’s IT environment. Even when provisioning a cloud server with abundant compute power and memory resources, potential bottlenecks may arise due to insufficiently resilient internet bandwidth. Identifying and resolving such issues is crucial to ensure optimal application performance.

Review Existing Infrastructure

Create a Comprehensive Cloud Migration Plan

Develop the Migration Plan

After completing the review phase, the next critical step is to develop a robust migration plan for your cloud solution. Moving enterprise data and applications to the cloud requires careful planning and coordination to ensure a smooth transition. It is essential to ensure that everyone within the organisation is aligned with the plan and understands their roles in the process.

A key aspect of the migration plan is governance. With data residing in the public cloud, data control and security responsibilities shift to the cloud providers. Organisations need to adapt their governance strategies to rely less on internal security measures and more on the offerings provided by the chosen cloud provider. Additionally, verifying that the cloud provider’s certifications are up-to-date is vital for ensuring compliance and data protection.

In conjunction with considering business data, costs, security, and the challenges involved in cloud migration, your IT cloud partner must also determine the appropriate migration timeframes for moving the business data and applications. While some partners may opt for a complete “lift and shift” migration, it can be more effective and less risky to break the migration down by workload, starting with less critical applications first. Moreover, the plan should address the handling of any remaining on-premises technology, with the possibility of repurposing hardware to maximise its utility.

Executing the Cloud Solution Plan

Once the migration plan is finalised, the next step is to establish an agreed-upon schedule with the business owners and assemble a migration team for the project. The migration team should consist of a systems architect responsible for evaluating server hardware and network design, as well as a cloud architect handling infrastructure as a service, software as a service (SaaS), and platform as a service requirements.

The team will collaboratively create a migration timeline in consultation with business stakeholders to minimise any impact on day-to-day operations. A designated project manager will oversee the migration team and maintain open communication with the business owner to promptly address any issues that may arise during the migration process.
