Transform with cloud
Accelerate digital transformation through cloud technology to become more agile and increase innovation across your organisation
Shifting to the cloud can dramatically lower costs, improve efficiency and make organisations more competitive. However, planning and implementing a move to the cloud isn't always a simple task. It's important to develop a cloud strategy that's right for your business and the needs of your users.
It's likely you are already using some forms of cloud technology—from storing files on Google Drive, to using Microsoft Teams or Zoom to connect with your colleagues. A defined cloud strategy can help you harness the power of your existing software and provide seamless integration between teams and tools.
Is cloud right for you?
One of the main benefits of cloud is that you don't require any equipment on site. This not only reduces the technical costs associated with running your own servers, but also lowers overhead as there is no equipment to maintain.
Often, if any issues occur with your infrastructure, these are resolved by your cloud provider which reduces the stress on your team. This also allows resources to be redeployed to other areas of the business where there is more impact on the bottom line, rather than just fighting fires.
Another great benefit of cloud is the flexibility—you only pay for the number of users in your organisation, or even per gigabyte that you use.
Cloud technology is ideal for...
Most businesses actually—there are so many cloud options that almost all businesses can benefit from some form of cloud technology. The real question is which cloud computing service model is right for your business, as this can affect the amount of control you have over your software and data.
What are the main cloud service models?
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
IaaS is the removal of the physical layer of your server and infrastructure resources, whereby a provider hosts the computing infrastructure of a company—typically present in a data center where you own and operate the hardware. All your server hardware, network infrastructure, and storage devices become a virtual data centre entity that the provider is responsible for the provision and maintenance of.
An example of IaaS is hosting your Atlassian Data Center instance on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Software as a Service (SaaS)
SaaS is where a provider also hosts the applications for business to use. In a SaaS model everything is provided for the business and managed by the provider with no need to configure or install anything. This out-of-the-box software is ready to be used as soon as you sign up.
An example of SaaS is using Atlassian Cloud services such as Jira Cloud, where you buy your licenses based on the number of users and just sign on to access the software.
Moving from on-premise hosting to a cloud provider has many benefits, from removing the burden of managing server equipment in-house to increasing flexibility and the ability to adapt quickly to changes in your business.

Our cloud services
Our cloud migration service helps you to move your essential software, such as Atlassian Jira, to a cloud deployment. This could be from an on-premise set-up, or consolidating existing cloud instances. No matter the scope of your project, our engineers are experienced in cloud migrations of all sizes and understand that each business is different.
Our bespoke packages focus on the needs of your users, and we work closely with you to ensure your new set-up provides everything your business needs to benefit from cloud deployment.
For many organisations, one of the main benefits of moving to the cloud is being able to outsource some of the more time-draining operational tasks. With Adaptavist Managed Services you can go one step further and pass additional technology management to our expert engineers. Outsource back-end infrastructure management, support, and even administration of your cloud based services with our range of Managed Services.
Cloud solutions and DevOps work perfectly together in an environment designed for agility and flexibility. The cloud provides tools for centralised deployment and can offer support for built-in DevOps. For example, if DevOps teams need to assemble components for a solution in a specific way, advanced cloud automation capabilities can streamline the process and make it more repeatable.
