Why F1 Solutions
Imagine your current computing platform completely upgraded, boosted for performance, boasting analytics that inform excellent decisions and available anywhere and at any time. Microsoft Azure is built on your terms, integrating all of your most important solutions and in your preferred languages. It offers all you need to scale, adapt and thrive.
If your business utilises Microsoft platforms, we can introduce an entirely new level of functionality, visibility, flexibility and analytics by architecting your cloud computing strategy within Microsoft Azure. Azure is a globally respected leader in cloud computing. Its numerous applications, trusted by enterprise, start-ups and government, allow F1 Solutions to design a cloud architecture that utilises business intelligence, AI, machine learning and analytics to drive better decisions. It also gives us the ability to set disaster recovery options, so you’ll always be up and running, and enables high-performance computing, creates new digital marketing opportunities and much more.
The cloud makes business-critical systems available in almost any situation.
Application processes are automated to ensure a streamlined, coherent workflow.
Data from your apps combine to offer a clearer vision and inform great decisions.
Our architects and engineers custom design a solution to fit your operation’s current requirements and, more importantly, to create potential for innovation, growth and change.
F1 Solutions is a Gold Certified Partner of Microsoft, having enjoyed a deep association with the brand for over two decades. We have worked with Microsoft products for almost all of our business life, meaning we can manage every step of the cloud transformation process with an unmatched level of knowledge, competence and insight.
Every migration plan is customised. F1 Solutions’ specialist Azure architects and engineers help identify which strategy will work best for segments of your on-premises environment. These strategies range from automated lifting and shifting to changing the way an application is architected, and to moving to new, cloud-native solutions. We also re-engineer apps that are not cloud ready, to prepare them for migration and enhance integration.
What does this mean for you? It means performance will be significantly boosted, staff will be more engaged in their workflows, the technological environment will be more secure and you’ll experience a new level of flexibility. Best of all, it will potentially come at a reduced IT cost as the pay-for-what-you-use nature of cloud computing removes redundant expense.
Once your business is in the Azure environment, new opportunities are everywhere.
An example is the Azure-exclusive Kubernetes (pronounced “koo-ber-net-ees”) software that enables the scaled deployment and management of applications. Many applications are built using containers deployed across multiple servers. Kubernetes’ magic is in an open-source API that orchestrates the scheduling of those containers on virtual machines. Essentially, it keeps apps up and running by providing an automated scheduling and deployment mechanism that is endlessly scalable.
Talk to us about boosting your business performance, increasing resilience and enabling adaptability with a powerful cloud solution.
Existing systems must be enabled for cloud, organisational concerns addressed and internal barriers removed. F1 Solutions assesses what is necessary before creating a roadmap to Azure success.
After building and stress testing the infrastructure, always focussing on agility, security, scale and adaptability, we ensure legacy systems remain fully operational during migration.
Security comes not just from a carefully architected cloud solution with strict access controls around data, but also from best-in-class security features, improved organisational processes and Azures renowned compliance enablers.
A new cloud build allows us to maximise the value you receive from your cloud service. You only pay for what you use, so whether you scale up or down, you’ll always know the cost.
While the learning curve around the transition to cloud is typically not a steep one, we can manage all training and upskilling requirements.
The AWS cloud brings many advantages to organisations looking for a competitive edge in a challenging market.
