“With the South African Azure Data Centres now fully operational, our customers are focusing more and more on Azure and leveraging our expertise to simplify their use of these public cloud services,” says Avash Maharaj, head of Infrastructure, Cloud and Security at Blue Turtle. “But the move to cloud can be paved with complexity, which is why we have created this programme as a means to help our customers better understand their environment, and through personal engagement with clients, align their cloud aspirations with tangible business results.

“With our experience and technical capabilities, we help customers discover the inventory of their IT workloads and analyse that data to produce a rich, detailed report to begin their Journey to the Cloud, based on fact. After this we draw from the five pillars to ensure that their cloud journey isn’t just a road trip, but a journey with a destination,” he adds.

Within the remit of this offering, Blue Turtle can seamlessly and completely manage the migration of workloads to the public cloud (from any source), conduct workload migration readiness assessments, ascertain application compatibility, and conduct business service mapping. Cloud security and cost remain two of the biggest challenges facing businesses when considering the cloud. The company can notably assist customers by underpinning their migration strategy with information security industry best practices; securing identities, workloads and data; as well as manage and formulate working models for complete cloud cost control.

Through its in-depth knowledge of cloud infrastructure and architecture, its teams are already assisting customers with accurate analysis of their on-premise and cloud environments, and fully managing seamless migrations to the cloud. Its end-to-end cloud capabilities are tried and tested and done with minimal disruption to a customer’s business.

“Our job doesn’t end when a client is ‘living in the cloud’, we draw from the benefits of our best-of-breed technologies, as well as our subject matter experts, to drive optimal results for our clients. We consistently strive to reduce unnecessary spend for customers without impacting the performance of their business services.

“What we have learnt over our time as cloud experts is that customers often get led down a path of costly and unnecessary technology undertakings to map their move to cloud. With our approach, we are striving to ensure that the roadmap we provide is not just successful, but also technically superior in every way, as it is built on qualified and quantified best practices,” ends Maharaj.
