Cloud adoption: advantages

BRING OUT YOUR BUSINESS
POTENTIAL

The Cloud is the present and the future of digital business.

Kiratech helps you create and manage a new and creative working environment that is open to all possibilities.


From the classical data centre, our vision is evolving with Private, Public and Hybrid Cloud Implementation, Infrastructure as a Code and Microservice Architectures for the development of increasingly customised solutions.

The Cloud Native Journey is for Enterprise companies that have ongoing or planned infrastructural and application modernisation, offering a range of benefits including:

  • Simplifies and automates infrastructure delivery processes (Infrastructure as a Code);
  • Optimises the infrastructure team;
  • Creates a costumised Blueprint for Cloud adoption;
  • Eliminates maintenance processes through automation; 
  • Oprimises the supply of resources and reduces operating costs;
  • Integrates your multi-cloud infrastructure and gives visibility of the entire stack.

How to implement the Cloud

The action and tools necessary for controlling each phase of the implementation and to efficiently reach the objective include:

  • Cloud Transformation  to enable the transformation from traditional infrastructure to the Cloud;
  • Multi-Cloud adoption to eliminate vendor lock-in, foster business continuity and geographic device deployment needs;
  • Service Mesh  to secure, monitor and connect the various services that comprise an application;
  • Any Kubernetes distribution to simplify application development through the fpur main Kubernetes distributions (Red Hat Open Shift, Mirantis, VMware Tanzu and Rancher).

How to get the most out of
the Cloud

The first step is to implement the Cloud. The second step is to unleash the full potential in terms of efficiency and innovation.

Not only do we support you in implementing the Cloud Native approach, with the tools and methodologies best suited to your business, but we flank the entire life cycle of your project with our services.

FAQ

What are the best cloud migration strategies?

There are several strategies for migrating to the cloud.

Among the main ones we can find:

  • the "lift-and-shift migration", which allows a rapid migration of applications to the Cloud without the need for code changes; 
  • the Refactoring, which involves changes to the application code by exploiting IaaS and PaaS solutions;
  • the application redesign , which sees an application downsizing and modernization aimed at a subsequent exploitation of the flexibility and flexibility offered by the Cloud;
  • the recompilation of the application through the use of Cloud Native technologies, which allows for more innovative apps that exploit methodologies and technological innovations last generation.

    Kiratech is able to help your company in choosing the best strategy based on the assessment of the current environment and the business development objectives.
Are there any prerequisites to be met in order to adopt the cloud?

We can identify four main prerequisites for a migration to the Cloud:

1 - The first is the change in corporate culture, which includes:

  • an enrichment of the skills of IT and security teams in order to support workloads in the cloud;
  • the adoption of iterative or agile approaches;
  • the adoption of the DevOps methodology;
  • the definition of at least one team dedicated to the Cloud strategy and a more operational Team for the adoption of the same;
  • greater integration and collaboration between IT managers and those of other corporate business functions.

2 - The second is the definition of an initial workload, also prioritizing it, to be migrated within the first two or three releases. Based on the chosen migration strategy, any changes to the code and infrastructure will be managed.

3 - The Cloud hosting dimension that will receive the migrated resources must satisfy the minimum requirements to host the first workload to be migrated. Monitoring the Cloud platform costs is also fundamental to satisfy the fixed strategic objectives concerning also the economic aspect.

4 - The fourth is to have a clear software’s application, architecture and network map in order to detect eventual constraints related to the interdependences that have to be analyzed before the migration starts.

Kiratech, according to its big experience in this field, is the right partner able to guide your company in the strategic and technique choices, adapting them to the actual environment of the company in order to bring it to the Cloud Native Enterprise.

 
Are there any Cloud Provider lock-in risks? How to eventually solve them?

The lock-in factor must be taken into consideration during the Cloud Provider choice, it means that it is important to select a proprietary technology that doesn’t allow to migrate the application workload to another infrastructure in a later stage.

Choosing the Cloud Provider’s products allows to accelerate the time-to-market, to outsource the designing, the maintenance, the evolution of the infrastructure and provides integrations with billing, logging and monitoring of the cloud platform. This strategic choice must consider the lock-in risk in the case that some original favorable conditions given by the Cloud Provider will fall as years go by (licensing, obsolescence, vendor’s market stability, the vendor’s technological gap compared to the ecosystem).

Kiratech can support your Cloud Provider adoption strategy by analyzing the architectural and infrastructural components, identifying the lock-in risks and activating some risk’s mitigation strategies that consist in choose the best technological layers.

Is it better to use open-source tools?

Open source tools can be analyzed more easily than the black box ones. This analysis includes also the eventual risks related to the implemented code’s quality and its availability to host features or patching from the community according to a shared roadmap.



Tools can be developed spontaneously by the community or can be released by the vendor. The product’s stability and solidity will be declared according to its ecosystem and how much grip it will generate inside the community.



Another important thing is to evaluate the open source product’s offered support: if there is no support, then the company will have to maintain it and correct possible anomalies. There are also some open source products that can be covered by the vendor’s support using licensing models that can be different according to the product.
There is also an always increasing complex ecosystem of cloud native products given by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation that allow to monitor the maturity of the tools, filter them by license typology (open source or not) and access the code repository and the vendor’s information.

Kiratech is CNCF partner and Silver Member, so it can help the customer to be well oriented in its tools’ strategic choice to take business advantages to the company.
