Version 1 has experience working with customers at all stages of their cloud journey to enable them to maximise business outcomes through cloud. We provide independent expertise as to how customers can gain the best value from cloud and software providers.

We work with customers to identify business objectives and key performance indicators and ensure that these can be tracked in the cloud. This includes how to consider new services, how to forecast cloud usage and how to measure cloud consumption.

Next-gen Managed Services

The role of the Managed Service Provider has changed in the cloud. Managed services are no longer just about maintaining a level of performance, it is now about continual improvement and optimisation. Cloud infrastructures are dynamic, they scale and shrink, instances spin up on demand and cloud vendors release new services every day. Version 1 offer the next generation of managed services which includes dynamic montioring of cloud resources, automation of deployment and event management through our DevOps approach. Our consultants are constantly training and upskilling so that we stay on top of the latest cloud developments.

The right cloud strategy for you

Hybrid cloud and multi cloud are the most popular cloud strategies for enterprise organisations. Orgainsiations adopt a multi cloud approach for a numer of reasons: some clouds are better suited for different solutions (Microsoft and Oracle both have powerful SaaS offerings, but AWS is the IaaS leader), organisations may want to avoid over dependance on a single vendor, or the descision may be down to cost. Similarly a hybrid cloud approach is chosen for a number of reasons. Usually organisations that are looking to migrate to cloud will start with a hybrid strategy, linking their exisiting data centre to the cloud and deploying some of their applications in it. Version 1 are experts in both traditional and cloud infrastructures. Customer first is a core value for Version 1, we work with our customers to develop the best cloud strategy for their business.
