Cloud
We’re the Multi-Cloud Experts

The cloud landscape is forever changing, and we understand how complex managing more than one cloud (Azure & AWS) service can be. We’re here to help you centralise your hybrid IT strategy and give you back the time you need to innovate.

The Dangers of Shadow IT

The data centre is the heart of all business operations. It follows the traditional IT lifecycle of strategic and tactical investment, growing with the needs of the business. All this change can leave your organisation with a mismatch of services and platforms. Over time, different teams and even shadow IT can leave your data centre with many siloed applications, duplicate services, with no clear strategic roadmap.

Don’t stress, nobody is perfect. But with Ultima you can trust us to get you on the path to success.

Advise - Supercharge Your Data Centre

The journey towards a new data centre strategy is always evolving. It’s ok to be intimidated by a fully cloud environment. That’s where a Hybrid Cloud platform comes into play. A hybrid platform can give you movement of applications and data services both on-prem and in the cloud. This provides a seamless cloud network - extending the boundary from edge, data centre to the public cloud - while adopting technologies such as a software defined network to connect all the services together. Whatever path you decide, we can help you gain control of network security, regardless of where the workload is.

Data Centre Consolidation and Optimisation Advisory Service

The service is aimed at customers looking to create a strategy to reduce or optimise the number of datacentres, hardware footprint, technologies and operating model. The report produced includes a high-level architectural plan with costs, to enable the shift to a replacement target operating model.

Data Centre Modernisation Advisory Service

Following a straightforward four stage process - Analyse, Review, Define and Present - we develop a hybrid data centre strategy that addresses the complexities of evaluating, rationalising, optimising or transforming your environment.

Data Centre Discovery and Health Assessment

Engage and Develop - Deploying you to the Private Cloud

Data centre infrastructure eventually reaches the end life and must be replaced. Fact.  Maintaining legacy systems past their intended support date is risky, and in many impacts business operations, security and compliance. As a result, IT teams struggle to respond to future business requirements, as the underlying platform doesn’t support or integrate with new technologies.
