The first step on your journey to the Cloud
To move to the Cloud you need solid foundations in place to enable seamless and secure connectivity on which to establish your Hybrid environment.
Federating your network infrastructure and identity with the Cloud provides the platform to enable you to deploy services and applications to the Cloud, to test and prove their fit-for-purpose, and to ascertain suitability for Cloud deployment.
Leveraging our extensive expertise we’ll help you prepare a framework to extend your production environment to the Cloud – establish connectivity, extend your core infrastructure to Azure, and establish hybrid identity to enable you to securely and seamlessly access and deploy Cloud-based services, applications and compute.
This short engagement will enable you to establish the platform to underpin your transformation journey.
Rather than having to invest in large data center server deployments, organisations can quickly use a cloud implementation that has been configured and optimised specifically to run key enterprise applications. By combining the flexibility and reliability of server virtualisation with the ease of management and provisioning of cloud computing, private cloud makes it much simpler for businesses to take advantage of enterprise applications in environments that are perfectly optimised for these critical services. Businesses today are embracing private cloud to a very high degree.

ITFR helps clients transition to the Microsoft Cloud and supporting them to leverage public, private and hybrid Cloud environments.
Organisations are taking advantage of Cloud solutions to reduce the cost and complexity of IT service delivery, and enable faster response to business needs, but it’s not all or nothing. There are a variety of deployment and consumption options.
Hybrid Cloud is the most common, with certain workloads deployed in the Cloud while others are retained on-premises. Hybrid solutions are underpinned by a common hybrid identity which ensures the user experience is seamless and IT services are deployed in the most optimal manner.
Seamless transformation to the Cloud
Transforming an environment is complex and requires a very different skill set from that required to run and operate the environment.

Management of workloads in multiple cloud environments
We have extensive experience providing Managed Services within a managed Cloud environment, encompassing all forms of Cloud platform including traditional on premises virtualisation style Cloud, through co- located and finally public Cloud.
Management of workloads in these environments is critical to maintaining service availability, and the advent of multiple cloud platforms has introduced challenges in management of workloads across and between various platforms. The ability to quickly and efficiently stand up a workload in an environment is imperative to the success of operating multiple cloud platforms.
ITFR’s cloud based Managed Service is designed to address the challenges of multiple cloud platforms, enabling clients to take advantage of the enhanced flexibility of multiple platforms, to optimise their service and to ensure appropriate governance.
