Cloud providers are offering more and more services that allow you to innovate, reduce time-to-market, automate, outsource low-value technical features, and reduce costs. To do so, you need to understand the limits and advantages of the cloud, acquire new skills and tools, modify your organization, and use agile working methods.
Planning for and understanding the Cloud
The three main types of cloud (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS) each have their own specific features. Creating your road map requires that you understand the pros and cons of each type. Astrakhan has extensive experience in helping companies define their cloud strategy, implement an SaaS integration process, and evangelize IaaS/PaaS.
Testing various IaaS/PaaS solutions: AWS, Azure, Google Plateform, Bluemix, Openshift, saleforces.com, etc.
Each cloud provider has its strengths and weaknesses. They often offer a wide range of services, with differing on-premise philosophies. We firmly believe that the best way to understand a cloud solution is to try it out. Astrakhan can migrate an on-premise application towards IaaS/Paas, demonstrate good practices, explain the difficulties, and train your staff.
