How can Milestone5 help?

IT is constantly evolving and Milestone5 are always ahead of the curve. From running your physical servers in a datacentre, to virtualisation, hyper-converged technologies and now Infrastructure as a Service.

IaaS is the next evolutionary step to hosting your servers, in Public Cloud. Run virtual machines within the Cloud or move your existing workloads, physical or virtual, to Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services.

Milestone5 can help you on your Cloud Journey by migrating your on-premises workloads or establishing an entirely new environment; setting you up a vendor and Milestone5 best practice environment – ensuring all aspects of access, security, governance and uptime are catered for.

Platform as a Service provides you access to entire services without the hassle of hosting servers to maintain it. Do away with elements such as updating operating systems, maintaining storage devices or renewing appliances.

With PaaS, you could access powerful platforms such as Microsoft Office 365 – with e-mail, files, intranet, unified communications and business compliance tools all hosted for you. Or store your backups, company files or databases with zero server maintenance.

Software as a Service takes this one step further, gaining access to the software you need with no configuration or setup and completely managed for you.

Examples of SaaS would be the use of Microsoft’s Office Suite, with access to applications such as Word or Excel straight from a browser. These services strip away the requirement to even install an application, meaning your users can get working straight away from anywhere in the world.

Whatever your requirements, Milestone5 will be able to align the right solution for your business needs.

Public Cloud has a multitude of cutting edge services, across IaaS, PaaS and Saas – but of course, being able to use them means making the move to get there.
