Design & Build
As business models change to incorporate the power of cloud platforms, ensuring your cloud infrastructure is designed to align with your strategic goals is critical to your success.
Mobilise can help you realise the benefits of moving to the cloud, ensuring delivery of a cost effective, high performing cloud service, designed to security best practise, that aligns with your operational and business requirements.
High level and detailed designs will be created, considering:
System availability and resiliency - level of uptime, auto scaling and fault tolerance required.
Capacity - will the infrastructure need to scale to meet unexpected demand.
Compliance and regulatory requirements - data compliance (infrastructure hosted in specific availability zones) or other regulatory compliance (such as PCI DSS for credit card payments).
Security - access controls to infrastructure components and hosted applications.
Real-time monitoring requirements - the importance of being able to monitor real-time usage of your environment.
Budget - ensuring Mobilise deliver the most cost effective solution for your business needs.
Compatibility requirements - hosting legacy applications.
Connectivity requirements - will off-site access be required via VPN.
Once the design has been signed off by key stakeholders, Mobilise will begin implementing the cloud offering with the core requirements, such as:
what type of implementation is required – phased, direct, parallel etc.
Compute resources will be deployed in line with performance and cost requirements, ensuring the size and specifications of resources fit the business need.
Industry standard security policies and best practices will be adhered to during the implementation process and will be built in to your cloud platform.
Mobilise can exploit key functions offered by cloud platforms to ensure your system is proactive rather than reactive to events.
Identity and Access Management
Access to resources will be configured using the principle of least privilege. Roles will be created and assigned to the relevant users ensuring access is only granted where there is a business need.
Resources will be chosen to best suit your performance needs. Resources will be placed into auto-scaling groups if necessary to ensure your cloud platform can cope with unexpected demand and can self-heal in the event of failure.
Networks and Connectivity
infrastructure will be configured to use the desired number of public and private subnets. VPN connections will be configured if out of office access to these subnets is required. Network security groups and access control lists will be configured to restrict network access where required.
Monitoring and alerting will be configured for your cloud platform using industry recognised tools.
Performance and Scalability
Resources will be chosen to best suit your performance needs. Resources will be placed in to auto-scaling groups if necessary to ensure your cloud platform can cope with unexpected demand and can self-heal in the event of failure.
Single provider, multi-provider or hybrid cloud we utilise the offerings from the major providers to determine your new cloud strategy.
Mobilise will run a series of workshops to establish the business, operational and technical requirements of your cloud infrastructure.
It is necessary to capture how you are going to consume your new service as that will enable Mobilise to determine your new cloud strategy (single provider, multi-provider or hybrid cloud) utilising offerings from the major providers.
After Mobilise has completed the implementation we will work with you to complete a formal handover of the new environment.
Mobilise will also provide a full suite of support documentation and troubleshooting assistance to ensure we leave your business operating at its maximum potential.
