Migrate to Azure with confidence
Successful execution of an Azure Migration requires experience, proven methods and planning, combined with trusted experts. As a Microsoft Gold partner, we’ll ensure you get it right.
Why Migrate to Azure?
As businesses look to digitally transform, one of the key choices to make is which public cloud to choose? This choice should underline your cloud strategy and help achieve your business’ needs. As such, Evros exclusively recommends Microsoft Azure. Offering all of the governance, security, compliance, functionality and capacity requirements a business could need, your journey to the cloud starts here.
Executing Your Migration to Azure
Using Evros’ Spark solution, we take the time and care needed to fully understand your business requirements. Evaluating the on-premises resources and designing their optimal path to Azure. This assessment phase allows for a transparent and collaborative approach. Ensuring each requirement is understood, incorporated into the design and documented. A well executed assessment phase allows for transformation opportunities, which can maximise the benefit of Azure.
Leveraging the output from the Assess phase allows Evros to accurately playbook your migration to Azure. Using proven processes and native tools to execute your migration to the schedule you require. Our experienced approach allows migrations to progress at maximum efficiency ensuring customers have a feedback loop to adjust if required. Our Azure experts will ensure that your migration occurs exactly when and how you need it to.
The final step of your Azure Migration is to ensure you are gaining every benefit that is on offer. Evros’ Azure experts will work with you to tweak your environment to maximise performance, minimise cost, and ensure each process is understood fully. Once your migration is complete, should you need additional help, we can also provide a complete Managed Service to support your Azure environment. Our team can transition your Azure footprint to a fully monitored and supported service allowing you to focus on other priorities.
Well Managed Azure Matters to Evros
To best utilise Azure, a shift in thinking relative to your IT is required. This is most apparent when planning costs. Previously, on-premises, you may have had to consider capacity vs cost. With Azure, Microsoft has invested heavily in their infrastructure to ensure that capacity is no longer an issue. As such, your focus is now on managing the cost of the capacity you need. This blended model allows you to focus on the costs that matter to your business. Using the tools that Azure offers, such as Cost Management, this allow you to forecast, budget and analyse costs down to the individual resource. Similarly, Azure offers cost saving measures unique to the platform, such as Azure Hybrid Use Benefit.
Regardless of your industry, governance should be a key consideration in your adoption and consumption of Azure. Thankfully, Microsoft has made this a relatively simple process using native tools. Combining services such as Azure Policy, and Role-Based-Access-Control, to name but a few, ensures your governance requirements are met. Evros dedicates planning, and knowledge transfer sessions to ensure that where regulatory requirements exist they are not only met but adhered to by policy. This approach ensures that your Azure environment is auditable and can meet any compliance requirements as efficiently as possible.
Again, a shift in thinking comes into play. Azure Security is offered as a shared model relative to trust and control. Microsoft offers a level of transparency that allows you, as the customer, to trust the platform. You can then take control and apply any security policies and controls that you require. Azure offers platform integrated services, such as Azure Security Center to help you achieve this. Evros can offer both advice and overall management of your security requirements via our dedicated Security Operations Center. Our goal with Azure security is to guarantee you have the knowledge you need to trust the platform and execute the control required.
