Cloud Services

Azure cloud solutions can offer your business limitless potential

Microsoft Azure Cloud Services

At Stripe OLT we specialise in secure, cloud technology, and as a leading Microsoft gold cloud partner, we know a thing or two about Azure.  

Whether you’re looking to implement a hybrid environment, or need a completely public cloud infrastructure, our team will ensure so ensure you gain maximum benefit from the Microsoft cloud.

One day we were an on-prem organisation, the next, we were a hybrid organization. Our clients and colleagues didn’t see any downtime, and everything just worked exactly as it should. Stripe OLT have become our go-to Microsoft partner – I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Understanding your cloud requirements

While most organisations are certain that the cloud has a vital role to play in the future of business, the various strategies – from a public cloud first approach to hybrid or multi-cloud – the solution can sometimes be unclear.

Understanding your unique requirements, is crucial. Rather than opting for an out-of-the-box service, our job is to make sure you opt for the right solution.

We guarantee our experts will empower you with the right information, guide you towards the most appropriate solution and ensure you benefit from a cutting-edge cloud environment.

Private cloud

Post pandemic, many organisations transferred their digital environments to a hybrid or public cloud infrastructure – however, there are still a vast number of businesses that are yet to transfer over. If you’re looking to modernise your current way of working whilst keeping costs low, our digital transformation experts are here to support your transition.

Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid cloud solutions offer mixed computing capabilities, with data storage requirements comprised of on-prem infrastructure, private cloud solutions, and usually a public cloud service — such as Microsoft Azure or Amazon’s AWS. If you’re looking for guidance around the complexities of various technology integrations, our cloud experts can help you gain complete visibility over your infrastructure.

public cloud

Public cloud services are an increasing popular solution for ambitious companies. Offering limitless data potential with large cost savings, vs. private cloud solutions, it’s easy to see why public cloud services are the appropriate option for many modern businesses. At Stripe OLT we are a gold Microsoft cloud partner, which means we are a leading specialist when it comes to implementing Azure cloud solutions.

Improved Security

client success story

how we helped HLK transition to a hybrid environment
Having a multitude of technologies was no longer useful to Haseltine Lake Kempner and they needed to consolidate their solutions under one roof, in addition to transitioning their infrastructure to a secure, hybrid environment. The Microsoft E5 License was going to be instrumental in achieving this.

Cloud SErvices FAQs

What are cloud services and how do they benefit businesses?

Cloud services refer to the delivery of computing resources, such as servers, storage, databases, software applications, and other IT resources, over the internet. Instead of hosting and managing these resources on-premises, businesses can access and utilize them from cloud service providers’ infrastructure. Cloud services offer businesses cost savings, scalability, flexibility, global accessibility, reliability, security, rapid deployment, data analytics, innovation, and business continuity. They enable businesses to focus on their core competencies, accelerate growth, and stay competitive in the ever-evolving digital landscape.

What are some examples of cloud services, what are the three basic types?

Cloud services come in three basic types: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides virtualized computing resources, Platform as a Service (PaaS) offers a development platform for building applications, and Software as a Service (SaaS) delivers ready-to-use software applications. These services enable businesses to leverage virtualised infrastructure, development platforms, and software applications without the need for on-premises deployment or maintenance.

How do cloud services contribute to cost efficiency and operational flexibility?

Cloud services contribute to cost efficiency and operational flexibility by offering a pay-as-you-go model, scalability, reduced infrastructure costs, operational efficiency, rapid deployment, global accessibility, disaster recovery capabilities, and streamlined vendor management. These benefits enable businesses to optimise their costs and adapt to changing demands.

How can cloud services assist with strategic IT planning to optimize business processes?

By leveraging cloud services in strategic IT planning, businesses can optimize their processes by aligning resources with demand, rapidly deploying new initiatives, reducing costs, enhancing collaboration, integrating systems, leveraging data analytics, ensuring business continuity, and maintaining security and compliance. These benefits optimise business processes, improve agility, and drive competitiveness.

How do cloud services contribute to scalability and flexibility in an organization’s operations?

Cloud services contribute to scalability and flexibility in an organisation’s operations by offering resource scaling, elasticity, on-demand provisioning, geographic expansion, pay-as-you-go pricing, hybrid and multi-cloud options, and agility for innovation. These capabilities allow organisations to adapt to changing demands, optimize costs, and rapidly respond to business needs.
