Cloud technology is essential for your business, but it can also be tricky and costly. No matter what kind of cloud solution you need, we can help you make the most of it. We have the expertise and the tools to optimise your virtual applications and infrastructure.
Managed Private Cloud (Infrastructure as a Service)
When security, flexibility and availability are of critical importance, Abtec’s Managed Private Cloud provides a trustworthy, robust, and efficient platform on which to build your business. We work with you to create dedicated cloud storage servers and network infrastructure, that is built to support your specific business applications and workflows, and host it within our own secure datacentres.
As well as the additional security and transparency that comes with a private cloud solution, you also have access to a team of experts who ensure cloud usage is actively managed and associated costs are kept in line with expectations.
Our private cloud resides in a data centre that is accredited for: ISO IEC 27001; BS 25999-2:2007 Isao 9008:2008 and RMADS among others.
For organisations who require dedicated rackspace for their own servers – for example for credit card transaction data or similar – we provide a range of rackspace and related services from our private, secure datacentre.
We can accommodate anything from a single quarter-rack unit to multiple racks, along with a variety of power options to suit all scales and activity. What’s more, our SLAs are fully transparent and flexible, meaning that unlike colocation in some larger datacentres, you’ll never be asked to move racks to accommodate larger service users.
As with our Private Cloud solutions, our colocation services are homed within a data centre that is accredited for: ISO IEC 27001; BS 25999-2:2007 Isao 9008:2008, PCI DSS 2.0 and RMADS among others.
Managed Public Cloud
Migrating your applications and services to the public cloud can seem like a simple task on paper. Leveraging the infrastructure of tech giants such as Microsoft Azure, AWS and Google should make perfect sense.
And for many businesses it does, however, getting the most out of a public cloud implementation also takes considerable expertise to keep costs down and resource use under control.
As part of our managed Public Cloud services, Abtec provides management control both at initial implementation and on an ongoing basis to ensure that your public cloud investment is delivering against expectations, whilst monitoring key considerations such as compliance and security. We help optimise usage to keep costs tight and your environment fit for purpose. What’s more, we’re platform-agnostic, meaning we can advise on which of the “big three” providers – or indeed which mix of those providers, is the best choice for your public cloud environment, so that business goals are met.
You may already have invested in your own cloud infrastructure, but are looking for ways to keep costs under control and gain greater visibility over cloud usage. In this environment, Abtec’s Network Monitor provides the oversight, alerts and management controls to maintain control.
It’s the same tool our engineers use to monitor our clients’ networks. It supports SNMP, WMI and sFlow monitoring, as well as packet sniffing, and monitoring of IPv6 devices. It offers more than 115 pre-built sensors specifically designed for QoS monitoring, website monitoring, email monitoring, application monitoring, database monitoring, monitoring of virtual environments, and many others.
It assures the availability of your network components and measures your traffic and usage. It saves you costs by avoiding outages, optimising connections, workload and quality while saving time and controlling service level agreements (SLAs).
