What the cloud will enable your business to do
Cloud technology and services can deliver significant benefits to businesses and the rate of adoption by Australian organisations is growing rapidly. In our discussions with customers we find many are unsure of where to start their cloud journey and at xCentral we focus on understanding a customer’s current environment and what they are trying to achieve so that we can develop a tailor-made approach as we have found in many cases cloud is only one part of the solution.
Below are some of the key benefits our customers have seen from adopting cloud-based solutions:
What we do in the cloud
We have a long pedigree in cloud solutions working with public cloud, private cloud and hybrid cloud solutions including Microsoft Azure (we are a Gold partner for Microsoft cloud solutions).
* We tailor our solutions depending on each customer’s unique requirements and business drivers (functional and regulatory) and lean on years of experience and successes to get the right outcome. We consider workloads and where they should be located, to come up with the right approach tailored to each customer.
A word of warning: A common misconception of cloud is that it is cheaper than running your own infrastructure. Although this is true in some cases, in many situations this is not the case and it’s why we adopt a custom approach for each customer to ensure there is no “bill shock” 3 months after you have moved your key applications and data to the cloud. This is why we work with each customer to map out which workloads are suited to public cloud and which would better suit a hosted or private cloud environment.
