LIFT & SHIFT
Shift to the Cloud
The cloud is no longer a mysterious concept. Most businesses have decided to use the cloud in one way or another; usually starting with a “lift and shift” of applications, but will often stall when trying to figure out what happens on day two.
Utilize our expertise in data protection and disaster recovery and expand it with leading edge technologies like data fabric to the hybrid cloud.
THE BUSINESS BENEFITS
Why Adopt a Hybrid Cloud Strategy?
Instead of focusing on the now cliched “journey to the cloud,” we ensure that our customers have a cloud strategy that supports high availability, performance and flexibility and gets you through day two. Whether you’re using multiple data centers, public clouds, private clouds, or a combination of each, we can help reduce complexity while maintaining high availability, all while avoiding vendor lock-in. Day two is ensuring the application runs in production — and that it is monitored, capacity is managed, and any issues are troubleshot in real time.
At HighVail, we’ve got years of deep and extensive experience in providing enterprise-grade data protection, disaster recovery & storage solutions.
