Cloud Data Enablement
“The Cloud” – it’s moved from being a misunderstood buzzword to part of the IT strategy of most successful organizations. Where does it make sense for you? When doesn’t it make sense? What flavor? Why? How do you get there?
At Straight Path, we’ve not only seen the transformation, we’ve been a part of the transformation. We’ve been a part of the conversations since Amazon and Microsoft really started making their plays here. We’ve seen the fear, the acceptance and recently the serious consideration big teams are giving various components in the cloud.
It got serious when the answer stopped being a marketing driving “you must move here” and became a conversation of “Where does it fit?” We’ve helped more than a few clients “lift and shift” VMs to AWS EC2 environments and Windows Azure in the “hosting” feel IaaS deployments. We’ve helped bring databases to Amazon RDS or Azure SQL including sensitive data with serious compliance needs.
Will everything one day be here? No of course not. That’s the trick. Figuring out what makes sense, what doesn’t and sorting it all out. It’s an exciting time to be in this space, but there is some buzzword confusion and the various marketing teams don’t help answer the questions you have. We can help. Drop us a note and let us help you do what is right for you.
