Cloud Consulting Services

Cloud management services allow business owners and companies to outsource related cloud-based operations and IT cloud consulting entirely or partly to a remote IT vendor. These vendors also provide services like cloud migration, optimization, monitoring, reporting, and more to ensure business continuity at reasonable prices.
IT-Magic is a cloud services company that employs a multipurpose, A-to-Z cloud consulting approach to increase the stability of web and mobile-based applications and effectively utilize IT infrastructure costs.
Starting from the ultimate cloud consulting services, we help set up 24/7 system monitoring and regular reporting to eliminate failures, limit risks, and anticipate potential threats via backup and recovery setups, performance and load testing, and more for your business advancement.
Being cloud-based is a new normal in the current digital world that provides a competitive edge to any organization. Our cloud consulting services are directed to cover daily operations and fulfill the changing needs of business entities via well-established methodology, as follows:

Cloud services consulting methodology

During the first phase within cloud consulting services, we analyze the client’s business to understand the key objectives, evaluate needs, and conduct profound tech assessments. As a result of the Discovery phase, we list fundamentals for determining estimated cloud costs, critical cloud dependencies, and choosing the most optimal IT cloud solution that will produce the greatest ROI for your business.

Discovery

The next stage of our cloud consulting methodology involves the proper planning of tech system implementation, cloud system migration, execution, and other related tasks. Our cloud strategy consulting offers the most optimal and effective set of services to match with business and tech needs and stay in line with your goals. We will provide you with a detailed roadmap for the plan’s implementation with the expected outcomes.

Planning

Lastly, the execution stage is when our team implements the designed plan and releases the tech solutions to production in order to achieve set objectives. Finally, our cloud services company proceeds with migration to the cloud or optimization of the existing IT infrastructure in order to enhance operations and cut expenses.

Execution

It is worth noting that there is no limit to IT infrastructure improvement and optimization. As part of our cloud consulting services, we are always looking for an opportunity to enhance an already well-functioning mechanism. We work proactively, apply best practices and tools, reduce risks in advance, and optimize costs where it makes sense.

FAQ

How to cut costs on AWS resources
There are three actual ways to reduce AWS resources like using savings plans, taking on-demand/reserved servers, or taking advantage of AWS spots. However, of course, all of these options have their pros and cons.

The logical first steps in reducing costs on AWS are downgrading the system, compressing servers, and deleting unused resources in the project. As well, you should upgrade instances to the latest version and properly size EC2 models.

If you are just beginning to use AWS resources, we recommend using a savings plan. The plan offers the lowest prices for computing resources and a flexible model to save around 70% on computing AWS powers. With a savings plan, you are given a fixed hourly rate payment, but can change the services, powers, and capacities involved; you can mix, modify, delete, and edit them. You will also sign a contract for a minimum of one year, so you cannot refuse the service until the contract ends. In addition, this model provides the lowest price on the instance in Amazon EC2 without considering size, OS, or region.

The second option, on-demand/ reserved server, means you reserve the server for business needs for at least a year. This option is less flexible, as you book a server with specific requirements like 4 processors, 10 GB RAM, etc. Once you are signed up for a reserved server, you cannot change anything about the configurations. Though, Amazon gives you a considerable discount. Keep in mind that these days everything can change promptly, and your server requirements may very well change too.

The third option is using AWS spots, or unused Amazon powers. With this option, Amazon provides a 30-40%, even 60%, discount to utilize their unused powers. This option is suitable for web or mobile-based apps compliant with many tech requirements and that are designed to work with the spots. However, there is a critical point that once someone buys an on-demand server, you lose your powers and are notified that within 2 minutes you will lose the spot.

You may also address our team for cloud computing consulting for the best optimization of your AWS resources and cost drivers of computing, storage, and outbound data transfer. In addition, it is worth mentioning that once you become a client of the IT-Magic team, you may receive a good discount of around 30% on AWS hosting technology. During our cloud services consulting, we list the costs for each AWS service and server in greater detail.
Should I keep cloud management in-house or outsource?
You should keep cloud management in-house if you want to keep all control and management inside your organization. Otherwise, if you want to get more flexibility, receive top expertise, save your IT budget, etc., then you should definitely try outsourcing DevOps and cloud consulting services.

The advantages of outsourcing include cost and time savings, while you concentrate on key business processes and strategy instead of tech aspects. Moreover, the IT outsourcing market is on the rise and there are many destinations you can reach out to for cloud consulting services. It is worth mentioning that Eastern Europe (Ukraine) provides qualified professionals and cloud architects at 40-60% lower rates than in American and European markets.

At the same time, you get a technical partner with top expertise to cover daily business activities, provide tech support, and ensure business continuity. Ukraine is a region with lower tax rates, a growing number of tech talents, and companies with 15+ years of outsourcing experience and cloud services consulting.
How to choose a reliable cloud services consulting partner
When you decide to find a cloud consulting company, there is a 3-step process you should follow to make the correct choice. Start with defining your business objectives and tech needs, list the criteria, and write an RFP (request for proposal) to evaluate each potential vendor.

In your next steps, you can search the net and vendor listing platforms that present the top teams like Clutch, the Manifest, and ITFirms. All qualified teams are present online and you can easily get this information. With Clutch, you can select a list of potential companies via detailed search filters. Then, you may check out a team's portfolio, tech specialization, and hourly rates in order to shortlist those that suit you best.

Finally, it is important to pay attention to the ways that a team keeps communication flowing, eager to add value, and provides a free consultation and relevant recommendations during the interviewing process. As well, pay your attention to the SLA, NDA, and other agreements before signing any contract. You can fill out all of these details in an RFP document in order to compare the cloud consulting teams.
