Cloud Migration

Public clouds are managed by public cloud service providers, which include the public cloud environment’s servers, storage, networking and data center operations. Users of public cloud services can generally select from three basic categories:

  • User self-provisioning: Customers purchase cloud services directly from the provider, typically through a web form or console interface. The customer pays on a per-transaction basis.
  • Advance provisioning: Customers contract in advance a predetermined amount of resources, which are prepared in advance of service. The customer pays a flat fee or a monthly fee.
  • Dynamic provisioning: The provider allocates resources when the customer needs them, then decommissions them when they are no longer needed. The customer is charged on a pay-per-use basis.


As Cloud infrastructure and technologies rapidly change, we stay abreast of the news and keep pace with updates so you don't have to. Our engineers subscribe to the videos, podcasts, email blasts, and you-name-it of the major public clouds such as GCP, AWS, and MS Azure. Development cycles in these platforms are mind boggling, and for the most part businesses use only a fraction of what's available such as APIs and VMs. Docker containers and functions which do not require the purchase of a virtual machine are on the forefront of a new "compute" calculation which reduces cost and increases response time while creating predictable opex with no up front costs.
