Cloud Services

Ensure your data is accurate and accessible

Migrate to Amazon Web Services

In the era of rapid technological change, the cloud is not only useful for backup and storage, it’s key for future-proofing businesses and maintaining a competitive edge. Businesses moving mass amounts of data to the cloud can take advantage of the latest technology and move away from aging on-premises
infrastructure, putting them at the forefront of innovation.

Migrating to Amazon Web Services (AWS) unlocks efficiencies and operational benefits that businesses never knew were possible. From lower costs to increased speed, AWS helps businesses focus more on core competencies and reimagine how they work and how they innovate.

With your data growing in the cloud, the sky’s only the beginning

The choices for on-premise, cloud, and hybrid architecture can be overwhelming and outright confusing if you don’t know where to begin in your search. Before searching, your company needs to know your “now” very well. Understanding and assessing your current application and technology’s strengths, weaknesses, and interdependencies will enable us to better deliver your best-fit cloud strategy. More understanding lowers cost, risk and change impact.

Instead of investing countless hours and resources discovering your “now” and mapping your future, choose a partner with advanced capabilities discovering and documenting business, data, and technology relationships.

With the help of good assessment and design services, your cloud journey becomes clear and predictable. Together you will find the best-fit cloud providers and services to match your requirements.

Our Cloud Readiness Assessment Methodology

DAG examines and classifies every application and system Using Gartner’s 6 Rs strategy:

  • Refactor
  • Rehost
  • Replatform
  • Retire
  • Repurchase
  • Retain

This allows us to answer the tough questions that other solution partner providers are not equipped to answer, such as:

  • What exists and how does it interrelate?
  • What are the alternative possibilities?
  • Which possibilities match which scenarios?
  • What are the threats and risks involved?
  • Do opportunities outweigh the cost?

Our migration experts and analysts are visionaries in our field, using proven resources to discover, define, and document your systems in preparation for a successful cloud data migration. The choice is yours; let DAG help you make the best one for your organization.

Cloud Data Migration Process

Assessment

DAG performs a complete Cloud Readiness Assessment that includes a dependency mapping of applications, servers, databases, and file systems. Included in this assessment are use patterns and licensing requirements, compliance and availability requirements, and IT staffing requirements.

Design

Based on the results of your assessment, we outline the recommended cloud provider and related service offerings that best matches your organization’s objectives for application performance, capacity, management, availability, risk, etc.

Implementation & Configuration

Set up and configure cloud provider accounts, providing access permissions to provider portals where necessary. In addition, we extend VLAN access from on-premise to cloud infrastructure to create a public-private hybrid cloud.

Migration

Capture, replicate, cut over, and remediate machine and file system configurations to ensure applications function properly within the future mode of operations (FMO) environment.

Security

Assist your IT department with developing security roadmap and understanding security responsibilities and risks; scan on-premise and cloud equipment for vulnerabilities; configure management reporting dashboards.

Erasure

Erase and sanitize hard drives and solid-state drives, including non-volatile memory. In addition, we destruct and recycle on-premise equipment.

Cloud Backup & Disaster Recovery Services

At DAG, we evaluate existing on-premise backup and disaster recovery (DR) strategies using Gartner’s 6R categorization approach. From there, we install and configure third-party or cloud-native backup protection polices and network architectures, while ensuring appropriate data is transferred and archived securely across hybrid cloud network tunnels.

Some key benefits include:

  • Reduce storage and operation costs by releasing on-premise storage capacity
  • Increase efficiency of restore and recovery efforts
  • Flexible mobility across varying public/private/MSP cloud providers
  • Simple Pay-As-You-Go model based on scalable on-demand usage

 

Secure Cloud Backup

Virtual Machine (VM) backups and off-site replications without the cost and complexity of building and maintaining an offsite infrastructure.

Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)

Replication and hosting of physical or virtual servers by a third-party to provide failover in the event of a man-made or natural catastrophe.

Especially useful for small to mid-size businesses who lack the necessary expertise to provision, configure, and test an effective disaster recovery plan (DRP). Your organization won’t have to invest in, and maintain, your own off-site DR environment.

DRaaS contracts are as flexible as your business requirements, and DRaaS provider will implement your plan in the event of a disaster and meet the defined recovery time and recovery point objectives.

DRaaS VM Replication

Fully-integrated, fast, and secure cloud-based DR through a DRaaS provider. Features advanced, image-based VM replication with simple setup and ease-of-use through a service provider.

With our cloud backup and DRaaS services, your IT department now has the capability of shifting this responsibility to a service provider they know and trust, while retaining the ability to configure and deploy the desired services that meet their requirements.
