Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform is more than just another cloud-based computing service. Azure provides a fluid business canvas designed to align and connect business processes, operations, and technology to reduce costs, increase efficiency and accelerate success.
Techblocks has been a leader in helping leading organizations navigate the complexities of Azure assessment, planning, migration, development, and management for more than a decade.
The hyper-scale nature of Azure provides a completely new meaning to scalability, elasticity, and resiliency – and has redefined how applications are architected and delivered.
Whether you are just exploring Azure or dealing with advanced Azure challenges, we can provide the experience, resources, and talent necessary to achieve any Azure migration goal.
At Techblocks, we understand what a cloud transformation roadmap looks like and what it takes to get there. For more than a decade we have helped clients move from the basics of cloud to advanced cloud-centric operations.
CTO and CHIEF ARCHITECT
More than 18 years of experience as an engineer, architect, and Azure Cloud Specialist.
Modern Cloud-Native Applications utilize powerful features and multi-cloud services to provide experiences that re-invent the end-user experience. We use Azure’s cloud-native platform services and app development frameworks to provide speed to market and cost competitiveness. We love using Azure:
Once we’ve determined what workloads will move to Azure, we will help you build a migration plan. There are several key things to keep in mind while planning a migration:
One of the biggest fears that organizations have when it comes to adopting the cloud is the fear of runaway spending. After all – the cloud is unpredictable.
Azure is Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG). It scales on demand. It is charged like a utility bill. But… “How can I forecast my utility bill?”
Techblocks works with every cloud customer to manage their cloud spend. By performing deductive and predictive analytics on their past and expected cloud spend respectively. By helping them make sense of their Azure bill and attribute the spend to different projects, departments, teams, applications, and cost centers.
Also, as an experienced Azure clients ourselves, we understand the most effective ways to keep costs down while not compromising anything essential to our business.
Automation is the key to creating the right balance between cost, reliability, speed, and time to market in a cloud strategy.
In a dev-ops world, we provide our clients with continuous integration, deployment, and automation options for all their applications.
We help our customers leverage the full dev-ops experience of developing on Azure by enabling the automation of code deployment to testing, staging to release
We work with clients to create ARM templates on the fly for stitching together multiple resources and automating their deployments. We support applications built in all languages (e.g. PHP, Python, Java, Node.js) and all web-service frameworks (e.g. Apache, Tomcat, Nginx) and web service frameworks
Cloud strategies can be complicated, filled with so many choices, options, and questions. At Techblocks we have evolved a disciplined process, based on our experience that helps organizations reduce risk and accelerate deployment of cloud projects regardless of size.
Assess enterprise environment, infrastructure, workloads, and applications.
Assessing applications and workloads for cloud readiness allows organizations to determine what applications and data can, and cannot be readily moved to a cloud environment and what delivery models (public, private, or hybrid) can be supported
Create infrastructure maps based on app dependency and performance; identify shadow IT.
It is common for an application being migrated to a cloud service to have connections of various kinds with other applications and systems therefore, the application owners need to understand the impact of these connections and address it
Group apps based on interconnectivity and dependencies, tweak groupings based on insight gleaned from assessment and infrastructure
Integration between apps is traditionally classified into three categories: process integration (sharing functions), data integration (sharing data), and presentation integration (sharing user interface)
Determine customer’s app groups’ cloud viability, readiness, and cost of migration.
Prioritizeapps based on how well they score for each “cloud readiness” metric and how mission-critical they are to a customer’s business. Right-size any over or underutilized resources. Address any security or privacy issues.
Estimate TCO of running applications on-premises vs. in the cloud with accurate inputs on labor, infrastructure, tools, training, etc. Calculate the ROI of migration from on-premise to cloud
It is a philosophy backed by processes tools and technologies that matured over time!
