Cloud services

If you want to embrace the full potential of innovation, you could choose for the cloud to get up to speed, use existing modules and automate certain tasks. Additional resources can easily be added and/or removed (during certain periods such as a Christmas sale, at the end of a financial year, etc…) providing your organization the flexibility needed. The possibilities:

  • Through the Public Cloud, we offer the necessary services on Amazon, Oracle and Azure to obtain and manage databases in the clouds. The same goes for the application area.
  • The Monin Private Cloud allows us to host and manage databases in our datacenters, based in Belgium. Your advantages: your data stays in Belgium and you have a direct connection with the engineers building and managing the Monin Cloud.
  • Monin Cloud backup service makes it possible to store your database backups off-site in the Public Cloud.

Cloud POC (Proof of Concept)

Your journey to the cloud should be prepared very well. Performance and functionality needs to be tested on all different levels: database, application server, web server, etc… Fat clients used possibly need to be developed differently, connections need to be evaluated, etc… That’s where a POC can help to evaluate which cloud to choose, which options to configure and how, which software licenses are needed or which ones can be canceled. Beside of that, it’ll give you an insight in the overall costs of running your environment in the cloud.

Monin can setup a POC in the cloud together with you, providing advice in which cloud and which options to choose.

Public cloud

The public cloud offers customers several advantages (non-exhaustive list):

  • Virtualized: it has all advantages of a locally virtualized platform
  • Pay as you use: a customer only needs to pay for the resources (CPU, memory, disk space, …) used
  • Capacity on-demand: whenever needed, a customer can add or remove resources depending on the load
  • Constantly improving: the cloud vendors constantly improve the underlying hardware, security, features, etc…
  • Less management: depending on the solution chosen, management only starts from the Operating System. So no need to manage the storage, network, server hardware, etc…

 

Monin has built up the expertise to help customers choose the best cloud platform which fits their needs. Great partnerships with some sister companies help to ensure the best solution is delivered on the right way.

We offer advice, setup, migration, support, management and/or monitoring services for following public cloud vendors:
