SECURING AND OPTIMISING YOUR CLOUD WORKLOADS

You may have decided that your future lies in the cloud. But the path there is complex. How do you manage the risks of security and data loss? How can you automate very manually intensive processes? Where do you source the necessary skills? CirrusHQ’s AWS-certified solutions architects and engineers apply their unique combination of insight and experience to assure you of a smooth journey to the cloud.

ARCHITECT: SCALABLE, FAULT TOLERANT SOLUTIONS WITH BESPOKE BACK-UP AND SECURITY

Our solution architects can design the optimum scaling configuration to maximise scalability and minimise costs. Solutions can be designed to accommodate regular traffic patterns allowing you to pay only for the resources you need, as well as coping with unexpected demand. By spreading IT solutions across multiple data centres and building-in redundancy to remove any single points of failure, we can maximise fault tolerance for your application without sacrificing flexibility. Self-healing architecture automatically replaces failed components to minimise potential downtime.

We design infrastructure based on your Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO). Running applications across multiple data centres resolves many disaster recovery issues: however, we can also failover to an alternative AWS region, allowing mission-critical systems to be rapidly restored, even in the event of a total outage of multiple data centres. AWS is certified for standards including ISO 9001, ISO 27001, PCI DSS and we configure this security at multiple levels, including data encryption, firewalls, user access controls, audit logging and private network access.

BUILD: FLEXIBLE, REPRODUCIBLE SOLUTIONS

Our AWS certified engineers will build your architecture utilising best-practice AWS CloudFormation templates to create infrastructure solutions that align with your business needs. This approach ensures multiple copies of your infrastructure can quickly and easily be created, keeping costs to a minimum whilst maintaining flexibility. We can also work with your development teams to automate build, deployment, test and release to enable new applications to be updated quickly and easily. Risks are mitigated through automatic rollbacks in the event of any application failure.

Our in-house software integrates a series of automated performance checks on your AWS systems, assessing whether infrastructure may be over-loaded in order to identify potential causes of performance issues. Our AWS certified engineers will respond to and diagnose any reported problems, leaving you free to concentrate on other areas of your business. When any alerts arise, we will conduct a Root Cause Analysis to determine what happened and how to stop it in future, whether that is tweaking the architecture or checking for issues in the software.

MIGRATE: MANAGING THE COMPLEXITY OF CLOUD MIGRATION

With proven expertise in migrating applications – large and small – across a wide range of technologies, CirrusHQ can assist with the migration of your IT infrastructure from existing physical, virtual or cloud-based locations. Our engineers work with your developers and operations personnel to migrate your applications and data over to your new AWS infrastructure and ensure that everything is working as expected. Once cloud migration has been achieved, our skilled team of engineers can – if required – provide ongoing management of your AWS infrastructure.
