Cloud Managed Services

Shuffle off the operational burden. Simplify, optimize, and automate yourself out of day-to-day management

Cloud services power up your business but what powers up your cloud services? Although migrating to the cloud is an all-important step that drives your organization forward, it’s just the first one in a series of others of equal importance. To remove the complexity from your cloud journey and control risks without sacrificing the agility and innovation that cloud technology brings, you need a well-thought-out cloud management strategy. 

If you don’t want to get swamped with the cloud management workload, *instinctools will take it from here. We offer ongoing cloud managed services to simplify operations, maintain end-to-end service levels, and ensure that resources adapt seamlessly to dynamic changes in workload, processing, storage, and network requirements.

*instinctools key capabilities as a cloud managed IT services provider:

  • Visibility of cloud assets to establish cost transparency and increase ROI
  • Proactive performance monitoring and predictive analytics that allow IT teams to detect and remediate problems before they impact customers
  • Full-stack application and infrastructure automation using blueprints and templates to standardize and streamline application and infrastructure provisioning, configuration, and migration
  • Setting up security and compliance management across the cloud landscape
  • Accurate, timely cloud cost and capacity management, modeling, and forecasting to enable customers to optimize the cost of workload placement and cloud resource utilization

When it comes to the cloud, *instinctools knows what works and what doesn’t. We offer the whole spectrum of cloud managed services to maximize the transformative value of your cloud solutions. 

Security management

Although major cloud providers never stop improving the security of their services, keeping cloud data safe is the shared responsibility of both the vendor and the user. Simply moving to the cloud doesn’t mean that security concerns can be left at the mercy of the cloud provider. By following cloud security best practices, *instinctools engineers lift the burden of protecting data from our clients’ shoulders and ensure their cloud-based applications are properly secured. 

We implement and automate identity and access management (IAM) to control user access to critical information within a company. Instead of relying on manual error-prone processes, IAM enables granular access control to protect corporate resources. IAM automation allows companies to operate more efficiently by decreasing the effort required for managing the access to the network manually. 

To identify any potential security vulnerabilities, we conduct an audit of cloud-based applications by gathering information about data location, service additions, and leaving terms.

Orchestration and automation

We free up your tech professionals to do truly important work, while leaving the machine to complete repetitive tasks that can and should be automated.

  • Sizing, provisioning, and configuring virtual machines (VMs)
  • Establishing VM clusters and load balancing
  • Shutting down unused instances
  • Creating storage logical unit members (LUNs)
  • Performing regular data backups

Automation is a double-edged sword, that’s why it’s crucial to codify and coordinate these tasks to occur at a particular time in a particular sequence for particular purposes. We pair advanced automation with robust monitoring, capacity planning, cost management, and log analytics to ensure that the infrastructure is available when development teams and end-users need it.

Ongoing performance management

Cloud is an integral part of most companies’ networks and application strategies, but how to ensure that your systems perform as you want them to? 

By visualizing application performance, we track near real-time availability of your applications and resources to quickly assess and respond to service-impacting events. *instinctools team provides empirical data on cloud usage and consumption to optimize solution footprints. 

The right approach to cloud performance management starts not with tossing tools at the problems but creating a conceptual framework that will help to get to the root cause of them. 

We help you amplify performance while balancing it with costs and business needs in a number of ways:

  • Rightsizing instances
  • Micro-services
  • Scaling
  • Event-driven architectures
  • Caching

Cloud governance

If you feel like you’ve lost control of your cloud assets, we’ll help you regain it. With over a decade of experience under our belt, *instinctools experts are great at mitigating the risks that can lead to cost overruns, inefficient use of cloud resources, security breaches, data leaks, and failure to meet compliance obligations. 

We know that our clients struggle to keep up with an overwhelming number of regulatory requirements. You can always have our back in making your cloud solutions compliant with all the industry standards.

Multi-cloud management

To unleash unprecedented speed, functionality, and scale, a lot of companies are embracing a multi-cloud strategy. As a certified partner of Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, AWS, OVHcloud, *instinctools helps to leverage a combination of unique capabilities from first-class cloud providers. 

That said, each cloud vendor has its own proprietary provisioning tools — there’s no consistent operating model. At *instinctools, we handle this and provide you with effective multi-cloud governance without compromising agility or stimulating uncontrolled cloud spendings so that you can have unrestricted access to the full power of each cloud vendor.

Automating cloud change management with DevOps

Improperly configured software can put you at risk for errors resulting in downtime, additional expenses, countless hours wasted on remediation, quality problems, and missed deadlines. Defining the state of each system and its components, tracking the change, and configuring the systems accordingly help to prevent these issues. 

We apply DevOps principles to change management to eliminate the necessity of manual change implementation and bring automation to your testing, deployment, and risk mitigation.

Written in code, your changes can be subjected to any validation techniques that are available for code. Aside from that, you can roll back to a previously stable implementation if something doesn’t go as planned. Changes implemented in code also have the advantage over traditional — and slow — change management processes that most companies use. That’s because they follow development deployment guidelines rather than an ITIL-based review process. Going through the development process instead of the change-review process usually results in greater velocity, and increases consistency.
