Cloud Adoption Lifecycle
Each organization's cloud journey is unique—and we carefully devise a strategy that creates alignment between your business expectations and the technologies being deployed. Our Cloud Adoption Lifecycle methodology is focused on identifying the business outcomes that you seek and creating the best cloud-enabled enterprise foundation to accelerate your ability to reach them.
Public Cloud Managed Services
Today’s IT teams are facing immense pressure to deliver business outcomes with limited scalability and flexibility while managing spiraling costs. Incomplete visibility and inadequate control over complex public cloud services can blindside plans for security threat protection and business resiliency measures. ePlus can help you tackle these challenges.
As organizations begin to distribute applications to platforms both within the data center and in the cloud—hybrid, multi-cloud has become the gold standard. Featuring best-in-class expertise across both data center and cloud solutions, ePlus can help you harness the power of hybrid cloud and allow your IT team to function like a Service Provider back to your business.
Cloud strategy begins in the data center. Building a private cloud foundation and maturing automation tasks will allow your organization to expand into a well-designed hybrid and multi-cloud world.
Moving applications and workloads to the cloud offers many benefits to organizations and their IT departments. Whether getting started with application development, leveraging cloud scale for web or mobile, or going all in with a “cloud first” initiative – the cloud offers agility, scale, and new consumption models. But it also introduces challenges around performance, cost, reliability, and security. That’s where you need an expert at your side.
Cloud Hosted Services
The promise of cloud is appealing to most organizations, but many are not ready to modernize applications or skillsets at the same pace that they deploy new technologies or reduce their data center footprint. If you are seeking access to enterprise-class technology with consumption-based cost models and specialized support, ePlus Cloud Hosted Services is the answer.
There is often a misconception that only Public Cloud can truly benefit from the philosophy of DevOps. In truth, DevOps practices benefit teams regardless of the type of cloud used. When you truly adopt the DevOps way, you can offer automated cloud services for compute, network, and storage resources—as you pivot towards a more development-centric method of resource consumption (known as Infrastructure as Code or IAC). With a proper DevOps practice, you can leverage the advantages of automation and achieve your goals of faster time to market for your products and/or services.
ePlus can help you leverage the FinOps operating framework to bring order to chaos, enabling you to manage operating expenditures in the cloud by improving collaboration between IT, finance, and business units and establishing financial accountability for cloud spend.
