Cloud Services

Cloud solutions enable organisations to move away from capital-intensive infrastructure and the associate application and support costs. Cloud solutions also provide a scalable and flexible model giving you the efficient, agile and cost-effective platform you need to be an effective digital business.

GIVING YOUR BUSINESS A SEAMLESS TRANSITION

Moving to the cloud is an important commercial and strategic decision and many organisations recognise the business benefits of moving away from managing your own hardware and software to a flexible model provided “as a service” and accessed over a network.

We offer Private, Public and Hybrid Cloud solutions and each solution has benefits and we can help you make the right choice. Academia can enable your organisation to make a seamless transition to the cloud without disruption to your business. There are three options to choose from…

PRIVATE CLOUD

Highly secure environment

Customised to the organisation

Lower CapEx cost

Outsource management of server infrastructure providing more agility for the organisation

Provides scalability & flexibility and can be a lower cost than the public cloud

Cloud based solutions that are built and managed specifically for each customer. Our private cloud solution provides all the cloud benefits but with a security and cost focus giving our clients full control of their information and services.


These solutions are ideal for: organisations where security and control are of prime concern or who have business-critical applications that cannot be public cloud hosted.


Our managed private clouds let customers create and use a private cloud that’s deployed, configured, and managed by Academia. These solutions help organisations with understaffed or under-skilled IT teams and provides better private cloud services and infrastructure to users without the day-to-day complexities of managing a private cloud themselves.


Services can include Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), or it can be developed into a platform sold as a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).

Hybrid cloud refers to a mixed computing, storage, and services environment made up of on-premises infrastructure, private cloud services, and a public cloud—such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure—with orchestration among the various platforms.


Most organisations will have a mix of applications, sites and existing investments that will necessitate a hybrid cloud approach.
Hybrid cloud enables you to choose on a case by case basis to get a tailored solution.


These solutions are secure and potentially provide lower TCO through lower opex over time, also give the organisation greater control and customisation.
