Infrastructure Consultancy – why bother?

Our infrastructure specialists will help you make critical decisions on hosting your software. We’ll assess and advise on:

  • Hosting type. Private cloud, public cloud (e.g. AWS), on-premise or hybrid?
  • Capacity. Bandwidth, data storage, number of users can your services be scaled for growth?.
  • Server infrastructure. Servers; storage systems; switches, routers and cabling; and dedicated network services, such as firewalls.
  • Redundancy. Data backups, load balancing, maintenance.
  • Security and compliance. Security issues, compliance risks (e.g. GDPR)

How does the Infrastructure Consultancy process work?

Our Infrastructure Consultancy process looks like this:

  1. Initial conversations. Project scope, strategy review, budgets and timescales.
  2. Workshops. Refining business needs and user needs.
  3. Strategy. Aligning business goals with planned output.
  4. Technical assessment. A deep dive into your IT infrastructure.
  5. Technology roadmap. Creating a plan of how and when you’ll achieve your goals.
  6. Solution design. Drawing up a blueprint of the proposed solution.
  7. Final report. Summary report with findings, recommendations and next steps.
