Cloud Computing Services

Cloud Readiness Evaluation

Session evaluates your application portfolio and infrastructure to determine if moving to the cloud could reduce costs and improve service. Engagement examines the architecture, scale requirements, and security requirements of current and projected applications to determine if any of them are appropriate candidates for implementation with Azure and SQL Azure. In addition, the session will examine the hardware and software infrastructure, application requirements, and growth projections to determine if creating a database utility or private cloud implementation is appropriate for the enterprise. If determined that a public or private cloud implementation is appropriate, SE will discuss the next steps on the path to cloud computing services implementation.

Duration: 1 day evaluation

Cloud Computing Services Architecture Design Session (ADS)

This is a more in-depth analysis of your applications and infrastructure to come up with a recommended application architecture that incorporates public and/or private cloud database implementations. If you have already had a cloud readiness evaluation, this session will take the next steps to develop a cloud-based database architecture. Requirements will be studied in more depth and recommendations will be developed for public cloud architecture - elasticity, scale out implementation, communications implementation, integration architecture for communicating with non-cloud applications, data center locations, etc. - and private cloud architecture - hardware recommendations, software recommendations, build/buy decisions, etc. If this ADS is done without first doing a cloud readiness assessment, the ADS will start with an analysis of the current and anticipated application and infrastructure architecture to determine where public and private cloud implementations are appropriate. The outcome of the ADS will be a presentation covering the recommended public and private cloud architectures.

Duration: 3 day session

Public Cloud Computing Services Architecture Design Review (ADR)

A Cloud ADR can be held before, during, or after a public cloud application implementation. The purpose is to analyze the public cloud application and database architecture of your application to see if it can be optimized to improve reliability, scalability, performance, maintainability, etc. Ideally, a cloud ADR will be done before implementation begins so that any architectural issues can be resolved before they require code changes. The ADR will examine the architecture to determine if appropriate design decisions have been made in the logical and physical structure of the database and whether appropriate technologies are being used in the implementation. This includes things like whether SQL Azure databases or Azure storage is appropriate for the application requirements, whether the application will scale to meet the anticipated load, etc. The outcome of an ADR is a slide presentation on what was learned and recommendation for improvements in the application design.

Duration: 3 day review

Private Cloud Computing Services Architecture Design Review (ADR)

This is similar in scope and purpose to a public cloud ADR. Private cloud architecture can be very complex. This ADR is designed to incorporate in in-depth analysis of the design of a private cloud to ensure that database best practices are being incorporated and the architecture is optimized for performance, reliability, maintainability and scalability. If you are building your own private cloud infrastructure and services framework, this ADR will incorporate a review of the services design. If you are buying a private cloud implementation, the ADR will examine you implementation plan to ensure it will meet your requirements. The outcome of an ADR is a slide presentation on what was learned and recommendation for improvements in the private cloud design.

Duration: 3 day review

Consolidation Analysis

Scalability Experts has a mature, reliable process for analyzing your current database implementations to determine software and hardware requirements for a consolidated infrastructure. This process can be applied to analyzing the requirements for a public or private cloud database application by incorporating cloud databases as possible targets for consolidation. Our consolidation practice will be expanded to include public and private clouds as part of the consolidation solution.

Duration: 1-2 week engagement

On-Site Migration to Private Cloud

Engagement provides the design and implementation of a private cloud and the services framework for a customer or help in implementing a commercial private cloud solution and migrating databases to the new private cloud.

Duration: 3-4 week engagement

Migration to Public Cloud

Provides assistance in determining changes to database applications and data required to move to the public cloud and help in setting up the database and data migration to the public cloud.

Duration: 3-4 week engagement

ISV Migration to Public Cloud

The public cloud allows ISV’s to expand their market to a group of customers they may not have been able to reach economically before. An ISV can create a cloud version of their application that they can deploy with minimal effort and no requirement for on-site support which can significantly reduce the cost of entry for their customers. This offering is designed to help ISV';s migrate the database portion of their applications to the cloud so they can take advantage of cloud deployments.

Duration: 2-3 week engagement

Proactive Health Check for Cloud Hosting Companies

Many hosting companies have a minimal knowledge of SQL Server. As more of their customers demand SQL Server as a database option, they often reluctantly deploy a few instances of SQL Server into their infrastructure. This offering is a Scalability Analysis of their SQL Server implementations to ensure that they are using database best practices to offer maximum performance and reliability to their customers.

Duration: 1-2 week engagement
