Accelerate Your Move to Cloud
Embracing Cloud is probably on your to-do list. But you won’t achieve your goals by simply lifting-and-shifting apps from one place to another. A greater feature velocity on the workloads that power your business is needed. That’s what Intellect Solutions gives you.
The term “Cloud” is most accurately applied to those solutions that exhibit five essential characteristics, as defined by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) :
- on-demand service
- broad network access
- resource pooling
- rapid elasticity
- measured service
Several deployment models like Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS) are offered in the market by various vendors. We recommend our customers to think of Cloud as an array of solutions that offer many capabilities and management options to enhance their mission and service delivery.
Intellect has assisted various customers in their Cloud adoption strategy through evaluating their options based on service and mission needs, technical requirements, and other constraints. We have helped Agencies develop a continuous improvement mindset to realize the full potential of “Cloud”. We have demonstrated that hybrid and multi Cloud environments can be effective and efficient for managing workloads. We have realized the benefits of security,
scalability, and speed-to-market offered by Cloud and aided our customers to take full advantage of this solution.
Amazon Web Service (AWS)/Azure Cloud
The market leaders in Cloud computing are AWS and Microsoft Azure, as they offer a variety of services that utilize various deployment models. Through various consulting engagements, Intellect has gained enormous knowledge and experience about operating Federal Systems in these Cloud-based environments. We have AWS and Azure certified staff members who can design, develop, deploy, and operate customer solutions in the Cloud.
Moving from a traditional datacenter to Cloud offers our customers the flexibility of building an on-demand network that is based on software and the elasticity to scale according to their need. Intellect have deployed, managed and secured our customer network utilizing various tools and techniques offered by Cloud providers and third-party providers.
Our customers are tech-savvy and inclined to build Cloud-native solutions to meet their demands, enable new business capabilities, and provide great customer experience. To unleash the full power of Cloud and reap the benefits for our customers, we utilize cutting edge services offered by the Cloud providers to design leading-edge solutions to our customers. Intellect employs precise Cloud engineering techniques to address the needs of our customer.
Most of our customers have matured service offerings for their constituents that are based on traditional model. Due to the new demands, government policies and other environmental constraints, all of our customers are looking for “modernization” of their services. Intellect have successfully executed strategies to Rehost (“Lift and Shift”), Refactor, Rebuild, and Replace solutions.
One of the key advantages of Cloud is the layers of security offered by the providers and the associated shared-responsibility model based on the deployment factors. With Cloud providers offering Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) authorized services, Federal Agencies can pick and choose the solutions that fits their criteria. Intellect has been involved in providing Cloud Security to Government customers to secure their infrastructure, applications, and data. We were able to take advantage of new paradigms such as Zero Trust network to reduce risk and improve security.
Managed Solution Provider
Depending on the need, a Federal Agency might choose to outsource the management of their business service to better focus on the mission of the Agency. In these situations, we have taken the responsibility as a managed solution provider, whereby we design, develop, operate, and support the service in a Cloud environment. This has tremendous benefit to our customers by minimizing service cost, improving customer service, and reducing risk.
Intellect has assisted Defense Health Agency (DHA), Department of State (DOS), and Defense Information System Agency (DISA) for their Cloud computing services.
