Equinix Professional Services for Cloud (EPS Cloud)

Incorporating the hybrid cloud into your enterprise operations may sound like a relatively simple undertaking — add hardware and capital, host your data externally, meet performance expectations — but the reality is much more complex.

Let EPS Cloud help you:

  • Take the first step to enable your cloud implementation.
  • Assess your applications to understand which are cloud-ready.
  • Determine which applications can be migrated to the cloud.
  • Identify how to optimise your cloud to meet compliance, regulation, privacy and internal policy.
  • Select the right service providers and architectures to ensure they match your individual business needs and requirements.
  • Minimise the risks and business disruptions involved in migration.
  • Learn how using the cloud for disaster recovery can create savings and security.

Complete turnkey solutions individualised to your business

Hybrid cloud migration can never be a 'one size fits all' approach. Solutions must be customised to your unique needs and requirements; otherwise there is the potential for significant problems. EPS Cloud looks at your migration holistically, analysing every aspect of your operations involved with the infrastructure change. They in turn 'architect in' solutions that maximise your cloud investment, including unprecedented access to Platform Equinix that empowers your company to make the most of emerging technologies.

Cloud assessment

EPS Cloud's assessment takes the mystery and uncertainty out of cloud migration, allowing you to make the best choices based on your specific business requirements. Delivered within one to two weeks, the assessment is a four-phase approach that offers:

  • A heat map of existing servers and applications outlining cloud readiness status, categorised by type, criticality and risk
  • A current and future architectural state analysis of all apps
  • Cloud infrastructure design — your environment re-envisioned for the cloud
  • A simplified migration plan
  • Total cost of ownership report and return on investment analysis

Cloud enablement

Initiating your journey to the cloud can be a daunting experience, especially when so much of your infrastructure is on the line. EPS Cloud helps you take the first step into cloud computing, so you always get a good night’s sleep knowing your company is on the right path. Here’s how:

  • Create the foundational elements for your entire cloud infrastructure, giving you a solid base from which to grow and thrive.
  • Navigates you through the initial security and setup phases, ensuring every aspect of your operations are taken into account.
  • Request the Equinix Cloud Exchange enablement service and EPS Cloud will complete the technical set-up and configuration to activate the Equinix Cloud Exchange service.

Cloud migration

EPS Cloud will use your assessment results and combine the Lift and Shift and Greenfield migration methodologies to create the ultimate solution for your existing environment and objectives. Lift and Shift requires limited configuration and is the fastest way to migrate to the cloud, and Greenfield offers complete customisation, the use of latest technologies, application updates and optimised performance.

A migration with EPS Cloud is specifically designed to have little or no impact to ongoing operations.

  • The Lift and Shift methodology migrates company applications to the cloud without any code changes.
  • The Greenfield methodology designs the cloud from scratch and is engineered to maximise cloud capabilities.
