NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterprise CXOs today are rapidly adopting a "cloud first" approach to their organizations' growing IT infrastructure needs. While some compute functions are still best managed on premise, an extensible hybrid cloud IT strategy can deliver a more cost-effective, pay-as-you-go model that increases the agility needed in a modern workplace while decreasing capital expenditures. To help, Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), announced today the expansion of its cloud-first infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) capabilities, offering enterprise customers the assistance they need to migrate key workloads to the Microsoft Azure cloud.
"Our goal is to support our customers' cloud-first visions by helping them put their infrastructure in the cloud," says Wendy McQuiston, Director of Microsoft Professional Services, Logicalis US. "With Azure, we can take those workloads that have traditionally resided in a data center, taking up server rack space, requiring cooling and cabling and on-premise maintenance and management, and move that into the cloud. The move to the cloud offers organizations greater agility, the ability to obtain innovative services, and improved time-to-market for desired solutions. Additionally, many customers find that shifting the financial model from a cap-ex to a more cost-effective, pay-as-you-go op-ex model is advantageous."
To foster this cloud-first shift, Microsoft is turning to experienced partners like Logicalis to help customers develop their strategic roadmaps to the cloud. CIOs and other IT pros need to know that the software and hardware choices they are making today will align with their emerging cloud-first plans and that those plans will correctly support their business and financial goals.
Because Logicalis has a history of marrying IT solutions with its customers' business goals, it is perfectly positioned to be that trusted advisor. By helping CIOs assess the various infrastructure and software solutions they already have in place and those they are considering for the future, Logicalis helps organizations knit together the best hybrid solutions to meet their business objectives.
Key applications for cloud-based solutions include the creation of Azure workspaces for ISVs; "lift and shift" solutions that deliver backup and disaster recovery for everyone from small to enterprise customers in a wide array of vertical markets; business analytics, IOT and management solutions; and finally, hybrid solutions for flexible, on-demand capacity delivered using DevOps methodology underpinned by end-to-end automation to achieve scale, speed and reduced time-to-market. All of this can also be integrated and packaged with Logicalis' professional and managed services.
