What ‘autonomous’ really means

Artificial intelligence
Intelligent integration

You have likely heard about autonomous (or driverless) vehicles. The ability of vehicles to constantly make smart decisions that mimic those of humans. This is being made possible through the power of AI. Autonomous takes automated to the next level. Automated means that certain tasks are performed automatically based on certain criteria set by people. On the other hand, autonomous uses the power of AI to go a step further, learning from the experience of every case and making smart decisions that go beyond the limitations of automation. And it gets smarter over time.

What does this mean for cloud? Traditionally, cloud migration and management have been very complex and expensive. They have been mostly manual and prone to many costly errors. Innovation has been narrowly focused which means you need many tools and advanced specialist skills – very costly and inconvenient.

We are creating an autonomous experience that migrates your servers to the cloud automatically. Afterwards, it does much more than the usual cloud maintenance. It continuously optimises your infrastructure, assessing internally and also against the latest from all major public clouds. Smart AI algorithms constantly check for possible improvements in cost, resilience, security and more. Our platform generates smart recommendations that benefit you, including switching workloads across clouds. And you have complete control. You can micromanage it (approving all changes and recommendations) or not (giving it autonomy) as you want.

This is true smart intelligence that gives you the power and autonomy to make smart decisions. AI intelligence based on facts and industry best practices that, unlike humans, gets it right every time. A platform that constantly gets smarter and pushes efficiency beyond human abilities.

What makes our platform unique

Security is in our DNA

We are obsessed with security because we know you are too. Our platform is engineered by design to be secure. It has a clever architecture that needs no access to your servers and collects no sensitive data. It is securely hosted on AWS – the leading global cloud that has some of the most secure datacentres on the planet. AWS also offers industry-leading cloud security measures, including advanced encryption and intrusion prevention. Our ‘security-first’ commitment covers everything we do – our platform, service delivery, data management, software development and internal operations. We are Cyber Essentials Plus and IASME Governance certified. We are working towards ISO 27001 which will be followed by 27017, 27018, 27701, 22301, SOC 2 and CSA STAR. This is security governance that many large organisations do not have. That’s our commitment to security.

Our progress – what we can do today

We hope that you are excited about our vision. Making it a reality will take years of hard work and very smart people. Let’s talk about what we can do for you today.

Fully automated cloud migration – operational for AWS

We have started with fully automating cloud migration as this is a critical element of our vision. Our current platform (v.1.2) automatically migrates Linux OS servers to AWS as a lift-and-shift approach (exact copy). It works for RedHat, Ubuntu and CentOS distributions (and soon SUSE Linux Enterprise). Afterwards, our team steps in to fully optimise your cloud environment, ensuring cost-effectiveness, resilience and security. We can then offer you our SLA-backed management service to continuously optimise and manage your cloud environment.

Of course, there are many migration scenarios. To cover the limitations of our current platform, our expert team can fill the gaps and complete all other requirements for your case in a semi-automated way. We cover any scenarios – from lift-and-shift of any OS to complex re-platforming and re-factoring to any major public cloud. We combine our platform with the extensive capabilities of our expert cloud migration team. And you still benefit from up to 5x lower cost and 5x quicker migration than most managed consultancies. See the diagram below showing our process.

Semi-automated cloud management

We can offer you a comprehensive SLA-backed cloud management service that gives you top-level expertise in an affordable subscription. We take care of everything, utilising all native automation available in the cloud such as autoscaling based on real-time demand. We are currently creating a dashboard experience that enables you to connect and monitor your cloud infrastructure and make changes in a simple way. We are making the experience simple so you don’t have to learn and navigate the complex AWS interface which does not show everything in one place. Visibility made simple 24/7. You can rely on an experienced partner to continuously look after and improve your cloud, while you focus on accelerating your business growth.

Why move to the cloud?

Cloud computing is essential to unlock a world of benefits and possibilities that will empower and future-proof your business. It is a key part of digital transformation which is critical for all businesses.

Cost-effectiveness

On-premise infrastructure is inflexible and very expensive to maintain. It requires major capital investment to obtain resources designed for maximum peak demand. Practically, most of the time you are using only a fraction of your capacity but are paying for everything. In the cloud, you pay on-demand only for the resources you use. You can quickly and automatically scale up or down to match actual demand. You also benefit from massive economies of scale. The cloud eliminates the guesswork about your needs, gives you efficiency and (when optimised) a cost-saving of 30-50% or more.

Rapid innovation

On-premise infrastructure is slow to change and limits innovation. R&D and product development often require investment in additional resources that can take months to deploy. And when no longer needed, you can’t dispose of them. On the other hand, the cloud gives you flexibility, speed and choice. You can provision any kind of resources globally in minutes and remove them when no longer needed. No upfront financial strain and no long-term commitment. You can also quickly expand worldwide. The cloud enables you to innovate efficiently and release new products faster and on a global scale.

Employee productivity

Maintaining on-premise servers requires a lot of time, money and manual labour. There are many daily tasks like heavy lifting, racking, stacking and powering servers, patching databases, modifying configurations, ensuring security and compliance and more. This is very ineffective, cumbersome and expensive. In the cloud, most tasks are either handled by the cloud provider or can be automated, thus requiring minimal effort. This enables your people to focus on growing your business and strategic work like designing better applications and customer experiences.

Operational resilience

IT availability is critical. Unplanned outages due to hardware or software failure, security breaches or human error, can be extremely costly. Resilient operations, ensuring well-architected redundancy of resources and a high level of security, are very expensive to set up and maintain on-premise. This is why many don’t have them and are exposed to high risk. The cloud enables this quickly and cost-effectively. You can rapidly set up automated replication across multiple data centres ensuring near 100% availability and disaster recovery. The cloud also offers you some of the most advanced security measures available.
