Extend the Private Cloud
Initially, focus is placed on standing up a basic private cloud. This typically includes features like instance provisioning, basic security, on-demand portal and access and configuration of network and storage. After the base cloud is established, organizations will want to extend the feature set to include more sophisticated features, including orchestration, auto-scaling, auto-monitoring, connectivity to public clouds, and PaaS features like databases and message queues. MomentumSI provides services with:
- Identify and prioritize private cloud extensions
- Implement the extensions according to the reference architecture
- Stress test the extensions to ensure availability, security and performance
- Document new operating procedures
Migration to Private Cloud
MomentumSI works with organizations to migrate existing applications to their private cloud. Often, this work will initially focus on applications that have already been virtualized. In other cases, the ROI will indicate that non-virtualized work loads are better candidates for private cloud migration. MomentumSI helps organizations with:
- Determining the migration strategy
- Making recommendations on application architecture and design changes
- Creating a standardized, repeatable process for redeploying the software
- Implementing and testing the changes
