Cloud Migration

Move to the cloud and into the future.

Arctic IT provides cloud migration to transition your business systems and data into Office 365, Microsoft Azure, or AWS for unparalleled security and performance.

 

Business has moved to the cloud because of the many benefits offered by hosted application services. At Arctic IT, we develop and execute cloud migration strategies that allow your organization to transfer business systems in full or as a hybrid solution. Our services help you realize the benefits of cloud hosting, which provides immediate application management time-savings and equips organizations to scale for the future.

3 scenarios for replacing your on-premise infrastructure with cloud services

Software as a Service (SaaS)

Business applications like Office 365 and Dynamics 365 run in a highly secured commercial or government environment, allowing staff or customers to easily access hosted apps anytime, anywhere, on any device.

Platform as a Service (PaaS)

The Azure and AWS platforms provide highly scalable database management and business intelligence services. Migrating middleware and data applications to the cloud avoids licensing complexity, allowing teams to focus on the delivery of applications and data.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

The virtual machines in Azure and AWS act as a replacement for physical hardware, allowing businesses to deploy custom servers and networking systems. This supports the need to migrate legacy business applications to the cloud.

Office 365 migration

SaaS with Office 365

Office 365 transforms productivity by providing a collaborative environment to use various applications and of course, the Microsoft Office suite from any device.

Arctic IT takes your needs into account and performs a full assessment of your existing network to recommend the best deployment strategy for your Office 365 services. We use specialized migration tools to quickly and accurately transition your business to Microsoft’s platform. Cloud-hosted technologies provide the flexibility to grow and innovate into the future as a modern business.

Using Office 365 for business productivity and collaboration

Because its hosted in the cloud, users can securely access Office 365 applications as needed from anywhere on virtually every flavor of device.

Administrators can easily manage accounts for team members, providing access to applications and data as well as quickly add accounts for new talent.

Several other applications are available to supplement core Microsoft services for a more personal experience. Microsoft AppSource connects approved third-party applications that greatly improve productivity. Users can take advantage of Microsoft Teams with Office 365 for focused collaboration with a powerful messaging system that also offers calling and conferencing functions.

Modernize your business applications with the cloud

Microsoft has put an expiration date on last generation’s Microsoft Dynamic products. Today, these ERP solutions – and much more – are being replaced by the powerful Dynamics 365 platform (Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement, Dynamics 365 for Retail, and Dynamics 365 for Talent). These business applications are natively integrated with the Office 365 product suite, making the experience more efficient than ever.

Microsoft Azure cloud services

PaaS and IaaS with Azure and AWS cloud services

Onsite systems age over time, requiring continual maintenance and upgrades to ensure proper performance. Even with sufficient maintenance plans and knowledgeable teams, business is tethered to the capabilities of equipment and software between upgrades. The various cloud services by Microsoft and Amazon provide substantial flexibility at cost-effective price points for future-proofing your business. Arctic IT can help you navigate which cloud or multi-cloud solution is best for your organization.

Businesses can take advantage of cloud services to replace on-premise infrastructure, as well as utilize the intelligent applications and services built-in to the platform. A lift-and-shift strategy allows you to move your virtual servers to the cloud in order to decommission outdated hardware and provide fast, unlimited growth – eliminating future hardware costs. The cloud offers the flexibility to optimize server resources for your business applications. Just what you need when you need it and nothing more. Agility to create test, development, and single use servers quickly and for short or extended periods of time is a huge benefit of cloud. It’s more than just servers in the cloud; these platforms have all kinds of services that make your team more efficient, secure, and free to focus on what you do best.

Not only is the cloud more efficient, it also provides a higher level of security. It eliminates the need for physical security and provides better access control. If you’re a Microsoft shop wanting to leverage some of your existing investments in software and knowledge to Azure or you’re looking to move to the vast amount of services and offerings provided by AWS, Arctic IT is your trusted partner to transform your organization.

Microsoft Azure as a hybrid solution

Microsoft Azure and AWS as a hybrid or multi-cloud solution

Some businesses choose to leave certain systems in place for a variety of reasons. A hybrid cloud refers to a mixture of systems that exist in a public or private data center that interface with onsite technology. Azure or AWS can securely work with systems that remain on premises to deliver a highly custom experience.

Interested in moving to the cloud but don’t want all your eggs in one basket? We can implement a multi-cloud solution that combines both Azure and AWS to create a redundant cloud system.

Connect with us today to learn more about support for hybrid or multi-cloud solutions.
