Realise the potential of cloud infrastructure and DevOps

Cloud strategy, architecture, migration and software-defined infrastructure delivery for AWS and GCP

Priocept was established in 2004 to help clients deliver challenging software projects. Back then, new IT infrastructure required a trip to a datacenter to plug in some servers. Modern IT infrastructure is 100% software-defined and delivered in the form of “infrastructure-as-code”, using cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

As a result, Priocept’s services have evolved to include cloud infrastructure consulting, implementation and support, on both AWS and GCP. We are one of a small number of organisations that is both an official AWS Consulting Partner and an official Google Cloud Platform Service Partner, with consultancy staff that are certified on both platforms.

Priocept has designed and implemented cloud infrastructure for many large scale AWS and GCP users including Argos, CineWorld, Generali Insurance and Huawei. We have also worked with start-up organisations to advise on cloud architectures for large-scale mobile back-ends and “big data” analysis.

With the advent of software-defined infrastructure on platforms such as AWS, the development of a cloud consulting practice was a logical evolution for Priocept. We have taken a decade of experience in enterprise software development and combined this with several years of cloud infrastructure and DevOps experience to help our clients deliver faster and more reliable infrastructure, in less time and at a hugely reduced cost.

Cloud Infrastructure Discovery

If your organisation has not yet started the journey towards cloud based infrastructure, we can help you develop an implementation strategy to get there. We offer a fixed-price engagement to assess your landscape of IT systems and infrastructure, and their suitability and readiness for migration to cloud infrastructure. Then we will develop a prioritised list of candidate systems for migration to cloud infrastructure, and predict the cost savings that a migration would generate.

Cloud Infrastructure Selection

As both an AWS Consulting Partner and a Google Cloud Platform Service Partner, Priocept is ideally placed to help you assess which cloud platform is best for your particular business case. Each platform has its strengths and weaknesses, and they differ significantly in both functionality and architecture, so if you are not already committed to one particular cloud provider, we can work with you to ensure you make the best choice.

Cloud Infrastructure Best Practice

We frequently provide guidance to our clients on best practice implementation of AWS or GCP. Whether you are embarking on an all-new cloud infrastructure build, are migrating from a legacy on-premise datacenter to cloud infrastructure, or have existing infrastructure on AWS or GCP that you would like to review and improve, Priocept can provide AWS or GCP certified consultants to help.

Cloud Infrastructure Development

We specialise in delivering software-defined infrastructure on both AWS and GCP, with a particular focus on developing high-availability, highly-resilient web hosting infrastructure to meet the needs of e-commerce, content management, mobile and online marketing platforms.

We typically work with a combination of AWS CloudFormation, GCP Deployment Manager, Terraform or Ansible but can deliver infrastructure-as-code solutions using any preferred technology.

Cloud Migration

If you are considering a migration from on-premise infrastructure or a legacy hosting provider to either AWS or GCP, we can help you achieve your goals. We will initially work with you to define what level of re-architecting of your systems is appropriate to make them “cloud ready” and software-defined, and then we will execute or assist with the migration itself, applying our standard project delivery methodologies throughout to ensure a predictable, low-impact and successful migration.

Managed Services for AWS and GCP

Cloud infrastructure from AWS or GCP combined with managed services from Priocept is all that you need to operate your web hosting or IT infrastructure. No more long-term and expensive datacenter, hardware or managed service contracts. Priocept provides a cost-effective managed services layer on top of AWS and GCP, including monitoring, management and support of cloud infrastructure and a 24×7 on-call service.
