Experts in cloud technology solutions

To meet evolving demands in our increasingly virtualised world, workforces should be able to securely access and collaborate on internal systems and files from anywhere. To achieve this, many businesses are adopting cloud solutions such as Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Azure.

We’re on hand to help with advice, installations, migration, support, cloud backup solutions and everything in between. We work with all sizes of organisations, from startups to enterprises, with offices all over the world. Whether you’re an IT team looking to outsource the management of a cloud application or a business that needs help migrating to the cloud, we can help.

Simplifying cloud computing systems

Let us cut a path through the jargon and help implement the cloud within your IT strategy.

Understanding the difference between Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) can be confusing enough!

We want to make it as easy for you as possible. So, if you’re wondering whether you should opt for SaaS applications or servers on-premise, private or public cloud, or even hosted VMs with IaaS, we’re here to help.

Migrating to the cloud brings powerful benefits but, without professional analysis and planning, you risk exposing your business to security and operational risks. Our specialist team will learn your business needs, find a solution that fits them and ensure your employees can leverage the benefits of the cloud immediately.

 

We’re fully certified & specialise in leading cloud platforms

We’ll choose the best cloud model to suit you

Public Cloud - Air IT support

Public Cloud

In Public cloud a third-party provider makes resources such as virtual machines, applications and storage available to the you over the internet. This means you won’t need to set up your own physical servers in-house saving on hardware and maintenance costs.

Public cloud uses a multi-tenant approach meaning you share computing resources with other users but your data remains separate.

You’ll only pay for what you need on a subscription basis and can scale up or down quickly to meet changing demands and workload.

We utilise main public cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS), assisting you with the full implementation and migration of your services and infrastructure with ongoing monitoring, management and support.

Private Cloud - Air IT support

Private Cloud

In a Private cloud model, you have complete control of your environment which is dedicated to your own use and not shared. Infrastructure is hosted on-site or in a service provider’s data centre, allowing greater levels of control and security, with computing, storage and networking fully customisable to your business needs.

Private cloud is best suited for businesses with dynamic or unpredictable computing needs that require complete control, typically to meet regulatory compliance, security and governance needs.

We’ll design and build a dedicated cloud environment using a combination of technologies that’s right for your business. We can manage the whole process from design, delivery to ongoing monitoring and management of your environment, so you don’t have to worry about it.

Hybrid Cloud - Air IT support

Hybrid Cloud

As the name suggests the Hybrid cloud brings together a mixture of environments to suit your specific requirements depending on what’s needed for your business and where it’s best placed to optimise performance. The Hybrid model uses a combination of public and private cloud with Colocation, IaaS and existing on-premise hardware, since not all workloads are suitable for the cloud.

This is a popular choice for many organisations because they can deploy the right workload into the right environment as their computing needs change. Hybrid cloud provides greater flexibility, cost savings and more options for your IT environment whilst still maintaining control over your mission critical data.

We’ll create a custom Hybrid IT environment that meets your business specific needs providing an agile, flexible and scalable solution that aligns with your aspirations and goals. You’ll be able to make cost and efficiency gains by using the Public cloud to handle spikes in demand and the Private cloud for mission-critical workloads.
