Stretching Beyond the Typical Boundaries in Your Business
Much of the discussion around cloud today focuses on where application workloads should live. The bigger questions of how, when and why those workloads should move are more complex and remain largely unanswered. A comprehensive cloud strategy must account for resource consolidation and management, on-demand self-service, broad network access and rapid elasticity. How do you evolve your IT strategy to incorporate these benefits without impacting your ability to confidently deliver services to end-users? The answer lies in choosing a partner who understands your situation and knows how to help.

We identify and prioritize your critical workloads, and then evaluate them for availability, security and performance. Using this information, we work with your teams to address technology and operational gaps with solutions that maximize your existing resources and fit within your budget.

By outsourcing the hardware, software and support layers, IT organizations can focus their efforts on delivering business-critical services. Arraya has experience implementing solutions across the stack and can provide recommendations on which options make the most sense:
- Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
- Platform as a Service (PaaS)
- Software as a Service (SaaS)
- Backup as a Service (BaaS)
- Disaster Recovery as a Service ( DRaas)
Our team of experts is ready to help you transition your workloads and get the most value out of your cloud platforms.

Protect Your Information
No discussion about the cloud is complete without an acknowledgement of identity, security and privacy concerns. Compliance and regulatory requirements do not relax once your infrastructure, platforms and applications live in the cloud. IT organizations with cloud-hosted services are held to the same high standards as their locally-hosted counterparts and must remain vigilant to protect and safeguard their data. Arraya recognizes security as a fundamental tenet of cloud computing and supports those OEMs who deliver best-in-class solutions for identity, access, application, content and device management.
