Our Managed Cloud Services

Cloud Strategy

Buchanan’s expertise in managed cloud services gives us the insight we need to develop structured implementation strategies across both public clouds and private cloud environments.

Our team uses state-of-the-art cloud assessment tools to manage every aspect of your cloud strategy:

  • Assess your system to determine your day to day computing needs, and get the cloud structure that aligns with your enterprise. 
  • Determine if public, private or hybrid cloud operations will work best in your organization, and deploy your cloud using our proven methodology.

We’ll assess all data, storage, and applications to determine which can be cloud based, on-premise, or a hybrid of the two. From there, we’ll work with you to manage your new cloud environment and ensure a smooth transition for your project.


We’ll work with you to verify the integrity of your cloud computing environment, including Tier 1 recommendations and Tier 2 business applications. 

This assessment offers a roadmap for implementation, and outlines each asset that needs to be moved to the cloud. 

Depending on your goals, our team will handle the cloud assessment, initial build, migration, and any custom cloud solutions you need to better manage your IT environment.

Cloud Migration

When you need infrastructure moved to the cloud, our team of expert cloud specialists will be there to help.

Backed by experience in Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Amazon Web Services, our cloud managed service providers assess your IT infrastructure and find the computing solution that works best for your network operations

From there, we’ll outline the migration steps needed to move all critical applications and servers to the cloud.


As a managed cloud services provider, Buchanan takes an active role in your cloud infrastructure planning across hardware procurement, server assessment, and system design. 

Whether you’re setting up your own cloud architecture or managing the transition through a software-as-a-service approach, we’ll help you manage your infrastructure every step of the way.

Cloud Assessment

Cloud assessments determine which applications and infrastructure elements can be moved to the cloud, as well as which need to stay on-premise.

Our assessment process involves stakeholder interviews that line your strategic vision, classification models to determine your cloud migration options, and specific recommendations for how to get the most of your cloud computing environment. From there, we’ll help you develop a structured, phased approach for your cloud implementation.

Backup Services

For companies sticking with on-premise systems, Buchanan offers on-premise backup solutions to protect your assets; no implementation required. 

On-premise backups provide additional security for your enterprise by giving you a secure way to store critical data on local servers. Should your company experience a problem, on-premise backups quickly restore your critical systems and data. 

Local backups like these are an effective alternative to managed cloud replication as a business continuity tool, though many companies leverage both to achieve the highest level of business security.

Disaster Recovery

Buchanan’s cloud disaster recovery solution leverages incremental backups and cloud replication to ensure that all of your critical data points are duplicated, stored securely, and available when needed.

As your managed cloud services provider, Buchanan will work with you throughout every step of your disaster recovery plan, including initial discovery, design, plan development, validation, deployment and support for your disaster recovery plan using cloud technology.

Partnering with Buchanan for your managed cloud needs ensures you get the most out of your Microsoft 365 licenses. Our team will evaluate your user activity through our license optimization report, which includes the following:

  • Baseline Assessment – This assessment curates a list of current licenses and license assignments.
  • Recommendations for Optimization – After reviewing the baseline, our licensing optimization team will identify areas where savings can be realized by alternate licensing options, removal of unused licenses, right-sizing of licenses based on usage.
  • Report Presentation – We will present our findings and recommendations to you
  • Deployment – With your approval, we will implement any necessary changes. Our recommendations typically have no impact on daily operations. We will advise you in advance if users will be impacted.

Once you’ve migrated your infrastructure to a cloud environment, Buchanan will monitor and analyze your application workload patterns – including compute, storage, and networking – to ensure all IT systems are operating efficiently and that you get the most out of your cloud investment. Utilizing reserved instances, your hourly rate can also be lowered significantly.
