Buchanan partners with enterprise level organizations who are looking to adopt a cloud structure as a service to replace their current data center. Buchanan offers a best in breed IaaS model by partnering with two of the top platforms available on the market today:
Whether you are looking for a fully managed migration for your current infrastructure, a disaster recovery solution, or need a cloud assessment to get you started, Buchanan is your one stop IaaS provider to handle every step under one roof, one project manager, and one invoice. Our architects will build a solution that is right for you in full migration, or a hybrid approach. We assess the architecture, implementation needs and migration processes to recommend a platform and the services you need to design a high impact solution around IaaS, with complete integration of your on premise environment, while staying seamless to the end user. By partnering with the world’s two largest Cloud Providers – Microsoft Azure and IBM Softlayer – we have the resources to customize a solution that meets all of your remote commuting needs.
Our architects will define your end goals and gain a complete understanding of your current architecture including:
- Identifying and understanding current infrastructure needs, and business requirements
- Understanding key application requirements and restraints around data access
- Understanding security issues
- Understanding disaster recovery and Business Continuity
We then design a master plan for your infrastructure from ground up:
- Identifying all connectivity requirements
- Identifying network architecture and security
- Recommending the cloud solutions and tools best suited for your environment
- Determine the best approach for privacy based on your needs: Completely private, hybrid or completely public environment
In the development stage, we build, deploy and integrate with all current systems, offer migration support using best in breed migration tools that work directly with your technology needs of your environment and drive the processes that lead you through the migration
As a full Managed Service Provider, once your infrastructure is developed and moved into the cloud, Buchanan can manage all or part of the environment, including complete monitoring, maintenance, patching and planning for ongoing growth on a monthly basis.
