Technology does not just create efficiencies in your business. It inspires innovation. It retains talent. It delights customers. Perhaps most importantly, good technology makes a business more adaptable, able to handle any challenge and opportunity that comes its way. It’s a powerful advantage.

Your data. Your systems. Anywhere. Any time.

Cloud computing is a simple but powerful and highly affordable proposition. It is about the delivery of all your computing requirements – from servers to storage, software to backups, security to analytics and much more – over the internet. A must-have for continuity, rapid scaling as your business grows, and developing a consistent customer experience across all touchpoints, cloud computing increases performance, innovation, flexibility and adaptability. F1 Solutions designs and implements cloud service via Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure.

The global leader in cloud solutions, AWS puts businesses in an environment where they can scale at speed, enjoy greater computing power, have fully integrated systems and processes, increase flexibility and adapt in real time to changing markets.

As an AWS Select Consulting Partner, F1 Solutions professionally manages every step of the cloud process, from engagement and discovery to cloud readiness and assessment, and to migration and management/maintenance of the solution itself. We begin with the ‘why’, before designing, developing and implementing a cloud solution unique to you. In doing so, we introduce to your business sophisticated functions and processes that increase efficiencies, automate time-consuming processes and offer deep, data-driven insight.

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’s numerous applications, trusted by enterprise, start-ups and government, allow F1 Solutions to design a cloud architecture that utilises business intelligence to drive better decisions, sets disaster recovery options so you’ll always be up and running, enables high-performance computing, digital marketing and much more.
