Private Cloud

The last few years has seen a major shift by many organisations to adopt cloud services, driven by its flexibility, simplicity of operation from the client side, security, and an attractive financial model.

Most cloud services are retail offerings, with clients buying a pre-defined service from the provider. But some enterprises are unable or unwilling to use this model – and yet still want to reap the benefits of cloud services.

Private Cloud is the answer to this dilemma. Injazat can provide a bespoke cloud offering for clients, completely separate from the public cloud instances, yet offering the same key benefits.

Why Injazat Cloud?

  • Carrier Neutral: From our state-of-the-art Tier IV Data Center, and with services from multiple ISPs, Injazat Cloud offers robust network redundancy – resulting in high service availability for our customers.
  • 99% uptime SLA: Thanks to our Tier IV certification, we guarantee the highest levels of uptime, ensuring your cloud services are available whenever you need them.
  • N+1 Infrastructure: Our N+1 infrastructure strategy provisions surplus equipment for power supplies, network and load balancer equipment. Our facilities also operate multiple redundant HVAC systems, essential for business continuity.
  • Intuitive Cloud Management Portal: User-friendly software that lets you configure your cloud services as required.
  • No Lock-in Period
  • Flexible Payment Terms

 

Private Cloud Options

Injazat Private Cloud can include all of the above benefits, with the additional security and reliability of a bespoke solution.

Private Cloud enables organisations to achieve their desired security, data sovereignty and performance levels, in order to run critical business applications such as Azure Stack, Oracle Cloud, Core Banking, ERP, CRM, Big Data and Analytics.

 

Private Cloud Delivery Models:

Dedicated

  • Injazat Hosted: This fully hosted option sees the Private Cloud operated out of our two advanced Data Centers, based in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, offering 99.99% cloud uptime.

 

  • Client Hosted: Designed to make the most of a client’s investments in hardware and software, this option sees the Private Cloud provisioned by Injazat on equipment based at a client’s location. This offers clients the highest level of control over the Private Cloud.

 

Virtual Private Cloud

A next generation, pure pay-as-you-go cloud service that allows clients to provision virtual resources on a dedicated basis within a virtual network, with the add-on options of different types of storage.

Customers opting for this service get the high-performance computing capability of bare metal, coupled with the on-demand scalability, agility and cost effectiveness of public cloud infrastructure.

With the help of software-defined network and storage provisioning, Injazat VPC allows customers to dynamically modify their cloud usage to cope with sudden demand, or for better cost and performance utilization.

Injazat VPC offers an easy-to-use self-service portal, enabling organisations to seamlessly configure and manage their cloud environment.

Key benefits:

  • Pay-as- you-use model for computing and network resources.
  • Self-service portal experience for provisioning, monitoring and management of Virtual Machines.
  • Multi-tenant capabilities for supporting multiple divisions or functional groups under one organization.
  • Fully managed cloud.
  • Built-in disaster recovery.
  • Performance transparency, with performance monitoring and granular reporting

Hybrid Cloud

When purely public cloud services are too insecure or not fast enough, and a purely private cloud is cost-prohibitive, enterprises with complex computing demands could seem to be without options.

Enter Hybrid Cloud – a bespoke blend of public, private, remote and on-premises cloud, ideal for organisations with varied, or especially demanding, computing needs.

 

What is Hybrid Cloud?

A Hybrid Cloud incorporates both public and private cloud elements in a custom mix for each client, depending on their specific needs. A Hybrid Cloud implementation might include:

  • Resources from a public cloud provider such as Microsoft Azure;
  • A more local hosted private cloud instance; and
  • An on-premises instance, integrated into the public and private cloud environment.

From the organisation’s point of view, a Hybrid Cloud should be seamless, with the Hypervisor and Cloud Configuration software provisioning the various elements to applications behind the scenes.

The options for Hybrid Cloud are almost endless, and can be tailored to each organisation’s specific needs – and changed later, if required.

One example might see a banking client maintaining all customer records and core data locally, but using public cloud resources to conduct Big Data analytics that would be resource-prohibitive to perform locally.

Another example might see an organisation with highly seasonal demand – such as a gift retailer, ticket seller or a government department receiving user submissions to a deadline. For these organisations, a Hybrid Cloud environment can grow or shrink with demand – even if the demand is sudden and unexpected.

By combining these different cloud elements, organisations can enjoy benefits such as:

  • Security and Compliance: sensitive data, such as financial information remains on the local servers, while less critical data and tasks can use the public cloud elements.
  • Cost Effectiveness: Enterprises only need to maintain a smaller IT infrastructure internally, for high-priority tasks, while utilizing pay-on-demand cloud services for the rest.
  • Performance: For organisations with intensive workloads, these can be kept local to maintain performance and reduce latency, with the remote cloud taking on lower-intensity tasks such as storage.
  • Scalability: Hybrid clouds are ideal for organisations with seasonal or fluctuating computing demands: the cloud can scale quickly when faced with increased demand, by simply adding additional public cloud resources – and can shrink down once demand subsides.
  • Flexibility: Enterprises can use a Hybrid Cloud to keep core computing elements close by, while using the power of the cloud for tasks such as Big Data analytics, non-critical but high-traffic websites, or storage of large but non-critical datasets.

 

Injazat’s Hybrid Cloud approach

As a leading cloud provider and Data Center operator in the region, Injazat is ideally suited to design, provision and maintain a custom Hybrid Cloud implementation.

We can combine our UAE-based Data Center capacity with a client’s own resources and multiple public cloud resources from providers such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

By offering a mix of on-site, UAE-based and public cloud resources, Injazat can deliver a seamless Hybrid Cloud, which offers exceptional performance, security and cost-effectiveness to our clients.

Cloud Migration and Advisory

Navigating the world of cloud computing can be extremely complex and daunting – faced with dozens of different providers, and many more options for provisioning them, it is easy for enterprises to make a sub-optimal choice.

And once an organisation has decided to use a cloud-based platform, it is faced with the task of migrating its existing environment to the cloud. For all but a very few enterprises, this means maintaining full business continuity during the migration, with minimal outages permitted by senior management.

For organisations facing these challenges, Injazat is on hand as a consultant, advisory or migration partner.

Cloud Advisory Services

As a long-standing provider of managed services and Data Center resources, Injazat is the ideal source of advice, information and guidance on cloud adoption.

We can assist with every stage of the cloud selection and implementation process. Our starting point is always to ensure IT strategy is aligned with business goals, and with clearly defined key performance indicators (KPIs). From here, we are able to offer advice and guidance that is grounded in the organisation’s ultimate objectives, rather than short-term technical requirements.

And while business objectives must always remain paramount, we can also help brief an organisation’s senior management on the implications of cloud migration, such as potential downtime or disruption, to ensure they can make a fully informed business decision, and have realistic expectations of the migration process.

Among others, our cloud advisory services include:

  • Cloud adoption and transformation strategy
  • Creation of reference architecture and technology standards
  • Organisation change management

 

Cloud Migration Services

The benefits of moving cloud infrastructure from on-premise implementations for many organisations are clear – but what is less clear is how this migration happens in practice.

Migration of an existing, live computing environment is a complex, challenging task in any situation, but moving to a cloud environment – particularly a Hybrid Cloud implementation – can add an additional set of complications.

Successful completion of a migration requires a wide range of skillsets, many of which may not be within an enterprise’s normal range of resources. Migration is also extremely time- and resource-hungry, and finding these resources can be a challenge in itself for organisations facing a migration.

Injazat can take on these migration burdens – our teams of skilled software and infrastructure engineers can fill the gaps and provide the human resources needed to complete a migration.

And our long experience with managing and migrating computing environments allows us to bring best practices, insights and strategies to the migration process, helping our clients avoid potential pitfalls and complete the process as fast as possible.

Depending on the organisation’s particular situation, the migration process can involve significant downtime or disruption. While this is inevitable, Injazat can help keep such downtime to an absolute minimum, and works with its clients to ensure any disruption to business activities is minimized, and carefully planned in conjunction with senior management and stakeholders.

Different Migration Scenarios:

  • Migrating applications and data from legacy infrastructure to cloud environments.
  • Moving workloads across different cloud platforms (Injazat, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure) or infrastructure (public, private, virtual private.)
  • Data Center transformation, consolidation or relocation.
  • Moving on-premise software licences to cloud-based licensing models.
