Azure Hybrid Cloud Offering

We offer a fully managed and integrated Azure hybrid cloud solution with a service wrapper around on-premises and cloud data centres. Integration extends across several layers:

  • Networking – secure and seamless connection between your data centres and Azure cloud data centres
  • Identity – one integrated identity for on and off premise systems using Active Directory and Azure AD
  • Platforms - Azure public cloud, Azure stack, VMWare, and HyperV integration
  • Storage – backups, archives, and recovery sites
  • Disaster recovery – fully automated Azure cloud data centres

Managed Solution

We’ll manage any solution engineered, built and deployed by RedPixie. Alternatively, we can assess your existing Azure Cloud systems and provide a managed service once we understand your landscape and business needs.

Our managed solutions include:

  • Enterprise grade IT systems management process
  • Service automation
  • A 24/7 service team to monitor, support and manage resources deployed on Azure.

RedPixie demonstrated to us the immense power of re-platforming a line of business application into Azure rather than just moving the application.

Transition Services

Our hybrid cloud engagements start with the design and build of foundational hybrid infrastructure components (networking, Security, IP, DNS, Identity, Systems Management and operational processes). We run this work in parallel with PoC projects that help you get used to operating hybrid cloud infrastructure.

Following a detailed assessment, we plan and execute the transition of applications, workloads, and services from traditional data centre stacks (e.g. Hypervisors/IaaS) to modern hybrid cloud infrastructures.

Leading Investment Manager

We worked with a leading financial organisation to strategise their move to public cloud services, delivering an appropriate set of IT services and applications.

A key step in this strategy was to engineer the foundational elements that ‘stretch’ their data centre capability beyond on-premises and into Microsoft Azure in a robust and secure way.

We completed a detailed discovery and analysis of their current infrastructure to outline a course of action. Then, we completed a Low Level Design and build of their hybrid cloud architecture.

Wholesale Energy Trading

We completed an in-depth cloud assessment of this utilities provider's platforms. The company is looking to capitalise on the benefits of hybrid cloud and develop a long-term infrastructure strategy and architecture.

As part of their due diligence process, we evaluated various cloud models and cloud services to support the future innovation and growth of the business.

These were the high-level business drivers:

  • Superior business agility
  • Greater commercial flexibility (CAPEX / OPEX)
  • Leverage an existing investment in Microsoft technology stack

Active Directory Health Check

We’re working with a leading investment manager as part of an ongoing Global Transformation project. This comprehensive program of work is delivering global standards built around an agile methodology.

The seamless delivery of IT services via on-premises, co-location or public cloud is key to the success of this project. We found that a well-structured and efficient Active Directory and Identity platform is a critical foundational element in a hybrid data centre design.

With this in mind, we delivered a fresh perspective regarding our customer's current Active Directory environment and highlighted potential challenges that may impact the wider modernisation program.
