NaviSite, Inc., a Time Warner Cable company, is now providing a new series of cloud onboarding services for businesses: Self-Service Onboarding, Guided Cloud Onboarding and Managed Cloud Migration.
The new onboarding services, designed to help businesses move to the cloud with confidence and ease, provide clients with the tools and expert support needed to build a comprehensive migration plan and set up their cloud environment within the NaviCloud Director platform. NaviCloud Director is a VMware Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Powered platform that uses VMware vCloud Director and provides businesses with a flexible, customizable, enterprise class, production-oriented hybrid cloud environment.
“More and more businesses are starting to look towards the cloud as a way to manage complex IT workloads and also reduce the time and cost spent on infrastructure management,” said Chris Patterson, senior director, Product Management, Navisite. “The migration from a physical to virtual environment can be challenging and if done incorrectly can become an overwhelming and costly process. Our new onboarding services are designed with the purpose of helping our clients to seamlessly migrate to the NaviCloud platform and to take full advantage of all our support offerings to optimize their cloud experience.”
To help clients transition to the NaviCloud Director platform, NaviSite has designed a series of consultant onboarding services that provide a mix of resources and expert support that help to reduce some of the complexities associated with migrating to the cloud. Organizations can now take advantage of:
- Self-Service Onboarding — Provides a variety of resources such as downloadable tutorials and educational resources for clients that have a strong technical familiarity with the cloud migration process and are looking for a light lift in support.
- Guided Cloud Onboarding — Offers an additional layer of support for clients who need assistance with assessing their current IT infrastructure and designing a cloud migration plan. NaviSite provides the necessary tools and trainings to prepare the client to successfully migrate their own environment.
- Managed Cloud Migration — Designed for those clients who are eager to move to the cloud but lack the time and/or resources to do so and are looking for a provider to manage the migration process from start to finish.
The cloud onboarding experience can often be daunting for those organizations that lack the necessary experience or resources to make the transition. A survey conducted on behalf of NaviSite revealed that 50 percent of respondents found workforce management including process, workload, tools and technical skills required to execute migration as one of the top challenges in moving IT workloads to a cloud IaaS model. Additionally, 56 percent said continuity and maintaining service levels during and after the transition was also a key challenge.
NaviSite will be showcasing its new onboarding services along with the latest solutions in the company’s portfolio of leading enterprise-class, cloud-enabled hosting, managed applications and services at VMworld® 2015 US, August 30— September 3 at booth # 740.
In addition to NaviSite’s new onboarding and migration services, the newest NaviCloud Director cloud node is now available at the NaviSite Santa Clara data center. Opened in February of this year, the facility provides customers even more cloud services options.
