A cloud-first strategy doesn't just mean public cloud.

From service requirements to finance constraints and security restrictions, not all workloads are suited to public cloud hosting or one specific cloud. That's why we offer you cloud services across multiple platforms.

A cloud-first strategy is easy to say but hard to realise in the face of partner support matrixes, legacy versions, latency restrictions, data sovereignty requirements and CAPEX budgets. And for those who have become more cloud-native, spanning across more than one provider can appear complex and costly.

Hybrid cloud platforms take the best of both worlds and bring them together. The cost predictability, data sovereignty and legacy workload support of on-premises data centres is combined with the rapid provisioning, incredible scalability and consumption economics of public cloud. This is achieved by abstracting the underlying platforms from the services you provide to the organisation, creating cross-cloud consistency of resources, governance and cost-control. You then have the flexibility to deploy a workload in the right place at the right time, based on its requirements, not the constraints of your systems.

Our approach focuses on what you care about - your people, your customers and your applications - and helps you pick the platforms and solutions that enable you to best serve them. We ensure that you have the tools to monitor, optimise and secure these platforms effectively. And we enable business units to take advantage of them on-demand, within the constraints you define.
