Maximising the Cloud

Cloud services are no longer the innovative new kid on the block, they form a comprehensive part of the design of any platform. Cloud services offer flexibility, adaptability and high levels of availability that can help your organisation save cost and adapt quickly to the changing landscape your organisation operates in. European Electronique manages its own cloud and as a Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider works with both Azure and Office 365. We are able to help you find the right solution for your needs and ensure you maximise the benefits that cloud solutions can bring.

EE Cloud Service

There is a huge amount of choice and complexity in the market place with multiple vendors offering Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to platform (PaaS) and software as a service (SaaS) solutions. European Electronique has a clear vision for the delivery of cloud services. The ability to provide our customer freedom of choice, without losing control. We are able to take advantage of multiple cloud solutions and integrate them into a single platform.

Hybrid

More businesses than ever are starting to realise the value provided by a well-considered and implemented cloud deployment, whether it is public or private. However, there are applications and data that simply aren’t suited to cloud deployment and this is where a hybrid solution offering a best of both approach can often be a good fit. European Electronique has long been championing and deploying hybrid cloud environments, often within our own public cloud offering, and can offer a range of services from initial consultancy through to full deployment.

Freedom Cloud

Alongside recognised cloud vendors such as Microsoft we provide our own cloud services hosted in secure, N3 compliant UK data centres and built on HPE Enterprise grade systems. Freedom cloud can offer you a compelling choice as a core infrastructure or as a complement to other cloud services. Freedom allows you to easily flex your IT infrastructure according to your needs in a manageable and cost-effective way. Deployed as either a complete cloud infrastructure or as part of a hybrid strategy, our cloud offering gives you Freedom of Choice

Freedom Cloud can provide three key services;

  • Freedom Virtual Datacentre (vDC) is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution that allows organisations to build complex topologies, including Virtual Servers (VM’s), Virtual networks, Virtual Firewalls, Virtual Appliances which connect to any network utilising standard network technologies.
  • Freedom Enterprise Backup as a service (BaaS) (powered by Unitrends or Veam) provides a complete backup solution with remote data replication and archive to the cloud to ensure that data can always be recovered in the event of a catastrophe.
  • Disaster Recovery as a service (DRaaS) extends the capabilities of our backup service by enabling your infrastructure to be replicated and then run from our vDC. This gives your organisation the ability to keep running in the event of a major failure

Azure

In addition to our own public cloud services we can provide full consultancy and deployment services for Microsoft Azure and related services like Office 365. Azure is an increasingly prominent range of services with growing numbers of software and application developers tightly integrating with authentication (particularly 2FA) and other services provided through Microsoft Azure. With the advent of Microsoft Azure Stack, the ability to tie on-premise services and those in the Azure cloud seamlessly together, reducing the complexity of managing two disparate infrastructures in the process, promises to be significantly more straightforward.
