Hey, You, Get into my cloud

You are considering moving to the cloud but hesitant on where to go from there?

Edafio Cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and efficiency of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Our Proven Process for the Edafio Cloud

  • We assess your business’s needs and budget to architect a customized cloud solution to meet your goals for scalability, flexibility, and agility.  
  • We transfer data and functionality from local hardware to cloud hardware, minimizing downtime and ensuring protection against data loss 
  • We offer remote support from our service desk, with 24-hour service availability.
  • We provide remote and onsite training for end-users in any new cloud applications you may enable reducing the learning curve that inevitably comes with change.

When you’ve decided moving to the cloud is the right move, review Edafio’s proven process and a few questions and answers with your team to create a strategy: No one likes disruption but sometimes working on old technology can halt efficiency, goals, and revenue. At Edafio, we don’t believe any business should struggle with overwhelming choices or strategies on how to keep up. With a hybrid, multi-cloud approach, companies can leverage these services not only for end-user applications but for storage, development, security and other areas.

1. HOW WILL THE CLOUD HELP MY ORGANIZATION?

2. CAN I PICK AND CHOOSE WHICH ASPECTS MY IT ENVIRONMENT BELONG IN THE CLOUD?

3. HOW DO YOU DETERMINE IF THE CLOUD IS ULTIMATELY A GOOD FIT FOR MY ORGANIZATION?

4. HOW MUCH WILL A CLOUD SERVICE COST COMPARE TO USING ON-PREMISE SOLUTIONS?

So, let’s start at the top.

1. HOW WILL THE CLOUD HELP MY ORGANIZATION?

For the right organization, a move to the cloud enables your deployed workforce to work more efficiently while also providing a significant protection against unforeseen events or crises. A true cloud-based business can utilize multiple options from backup-only to actually running everything from email to other business-critical applications, all while eliminating the risk of a physical IT location disaster crippling your operations. Edafio will assess specific needs and your company goals and create a unique point of view for your business on how utilizing the cloud can potentially be beneficial. 

2. CAN I PICK AND CHOOSE WHICH ASPECTS MY IT ENVIRONMENT BELONG IN THE CLOUD?

Our goal is to design a cloud solution based on your needs. We will share where options are available and more important, where you will not want to compromise. Often when clients ask to pick and choose certain aspects of moving to the cloud, they do so with the intent of minor cost savings (which ultimately result in far more spend). Our goal is efficiency, and even more importantly, reliability. We will provide guidance for which areas are optional vs. which areas are recommended.

3. HOW DO YOU DETERMINE IF THE CLOUD IS ULTIMATELY A GOOD FIT FOR MY ORGANIZATION?

Many businesses walk into a cloud sizing exercise, thinking it is a cost-savings approach. Cloud is a strategy. It is a commitment to making your business more portable and more secure from disaster. The reality is that cloud-based solutions are often the same (and in some cases more) level of expense as what you might be paying today. When we assess cloud readiness, we focus on our clients’ strategy for the future. We will provide full transparency regarding price along with an unbiased recommendation.

4. HOW MUCH WILL A CLOUD SERVICE COST COMPARE TO USING ON-PREMISE SOLUTIONS?

Our cloud experts will assess your company’s IT needs alongside your budget to curate a cloud solution to meet your goals and make sure the Edafio cloud is a fit for your business.

5. WHAT TYPE OF SUPPORT DO YOU PROVIDE YOU CLIENTS?

Edafio is known for a high-level of client support. Clients can expect 24/7/365 on-call service as well as onsite end-user training.
