Novus did an exceptional job coming through for us on such a tight schedule. I look forward to working with them again in the future. They’re one of the most capable technology organizations we’ve have had the pleasure of working with. They delivered.
GRAND SLAM!!!! Ryan and his team are fantastic and I am so happy I decided to move forward on this relationship. Wish I had done it a couple of months ago. Thank you for your guidance and patience in helping me understand and appreciate the intricacies involved in the challenge before all of us. Everything has exceeded my expectations.
With the incredible support we receive from Kevin & Cam, we are able to give our entire workforce the ability to work offsite. This was no small task and the Novus team really worked hard on our behalf. Thank you all!
I wanted to let you know how impressed I have been with the Novus team. They continue to meet my expectations, regularly exceeding them. I can’t thank you enough for all the support your team provided in Willington as we transitioned our students and staff to learning from home.
Having Novus and their expertise as part of our team has allowed us to consider various technology solutions that we didn’t even know existed.
Private cloud is a form of cloud computing that offers many of the same advantages of a public cloud (scalability, self-service, etc.), except that it’s delivered through a proprietary architecture and is dedicated to the requirements of a single organization. It is well suited for organizations that have dynamic computing needs or require direct control over their environments in order to meet security, governance, or regulatory compliance requirements. Novus owns and operates a private cloud on behalf of our clients. We also manage and support hybrid cloud environments in which a public cloud like Amazon Web Services effectively becomes an extension of a client’s private cloud.
Key factors influencing cloud computing use are reducing operational cost & risk, minimizing hardware refresh costs, making your organization more agile in its ability to flex or scale, and timing that makes a service model more attractive than capital expenditure. Cloud adoption isn’t always an easy decision to justify, and the migration path can be less than straightforward. Clients should carefully weigh their goals and the feasibility of any cloud options.
Novus can assist in a number of ways:
- Creation of a feasibility study to vet options
- Creation of a migration strategy that includes clear business justification for why any migration should be done
- Identification of infrastructure and application components that are obvious candidates for replacement by a cloud service
- License management, i.e. operating system licenses, application server licenses, and third-party tool licenses
- Development of access governance policies that protect important assets while ensuring access privileges for each employee are in place and monitored
- Act as a 2nd set of eyes to help ensure on-premises problems are not carried into the cloud
Our approach is to selectively and gradually migrate infrastructure and data to the cloud. Successful cloud migrations should feel as seamless as possible to employees and the organization as a whole. While some disruption may be inevitable, we work together with clients to ensure this is minimized.
