Akelios has designed a number of packages for companies that are new to the Cloud Computing environment or that have already evaluated Cloud Vendors, Cloud Management Platforms, and Cloud Products, but which have not started an implementation process. All of the services under the Cloud Researcher package are aimed at giving our clients the most comprehensive overview of the cutting-edge capabilities provided by the Cloud Environment and to help them choose the option that meets their needs best.
- Cloud Training
- Cloud Vendor Selection
- Cloud Management Platform Selection
- Cloud Migration Cost-Benefit Analysis
Cloud Training gives an opportunity to compare the pros and cons of different Cloud Providers, Cloud Management Platforms, and Cloud Products. After researching the business and technical specifics of a client, Akelios covers the vital aspects of software development, software deployment, quality assurance, and IT operations in the Cloud tailored to a particular environment of the client.
Cloud Vendor Selection helps select the most appropriate Cloud Vendor for a client’s industry and technology environment. Akelios evaluates the specific needs of its clients and suggests the best fit, eliminating some Cloud Vendors that do not match the technical and business objectives of the company.
Cloud Management Platform Selection is designed for the companies that have completed an initial evaluation of various Cloud Providers. In the context of this package, Akelios helps its customers to select a Cloud Management Platform based on the Cloud Vendor of their choice. Akelios carefully evaluates the list of federated services and operational capabilities each Cloud Platform provides, in the context of the operating environment of our clients, in order to suggest the most appropriate fit.
Cloud Migration Cost-Benefit Analysis is designed to help companies determine the cost-benefit ratio in deploying their applications in the Cloud-centric environment. Coupling technological research with a strong business analysis, Akelios assists its customers in choosing between several options including a pure Cloud solution, a hybrid model (which includes some elements of traditional hosting), or a traditional hosting model when the Cloud Environment is not the best-recommended solution.
