What our clients say about Cornerstone's Cloud Expertise
The business demand for technology solutions outpaced what our IT services department could deliver, so we turned to cloud to gain new capabilities. Cornerstone stepped in and helped create the vision for what our new cloud would look like and help build out new services in Oracle's cloud. It wasn't long before we began lift-and-shift activities to move services from our datacenter to the cloud. We've never looked back. - Shane S. (an Atlanta GA financial services company)
Cornerstone is a market leader in the IT consulting industry when it comes to cloud services, including cloud migration services, implementations of Oracle Private cloud, and Oracle SaaS (Software as a Service), IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), and PaaS (Platform as a Service) solutions.
Our comprehensive knowledge of cloud services make us a great choice to help lead your IT team whether you’re in the process of switching from on-premises solutions to a cloud-based solution, or are looking to scale, expand, or revamp an older cloud implementation.
There’s a reason so many business are talking about the cloud – the market enjoyed a 21.7% increase in total market share in 2016.
Simply, cloud services are almost always better than on-premises solutions for the vast majority of customers. They’re easier to maintain, upgrade, expand, and scale as necessary, and cloud databases and solutions are usually cheaper, as you only pay for the storage and capacity that you need – with an option to upgrade to more as you continue to grow.
Let’s take a look at some of the areas of cloud services that Cornerstone specializes in.
Cloud Migration Services
Cloud migration can be a challenge – but it doesn’t have to be a nightmare.
Your data is your most important, most valuable asset, and Cornerstone specializes in aiding IT teams in the process of migrating on-premises solutions to the cloud, helping guide and advise your team as they choose an appropriate solution and begin implementation.
Our hands-on advising methods ensure the success of your migration, as we’re always willing to step in and lend a hand if unexpected problems occur.
Oracle Private Cloud
Often, there are companies with binding contracts that don’t allow them to use public cloud storage options – instead, they must use a dedicated, single-client solution.
Oracle Private Cloud is a top-notch choice. This turnkey solution integrates storage, network, and computing resources with proprietary software to enable quick deployment and variable capacity, with each server offering 2-25 compute nodes, with options to scale to further racks depending on business needs.
Oracle Private Cloud is often less expensive than traditional on-premises models – licensing is based on what you actually use, rather than the system’s total capacity. In addition, the Oracle VM Template system allows rapid deployment of VMs that are ready-to-run, lowering operational costs and decreasing time-to-market.
All of these factors mean that Oracle Private Cloud is an exceptional way to secure, protect, and scale your data, all while enjoying better performance and quicker deployments. In addition, Oracle Private Cloud is available in Saas, PaaS, and IaaS implementations, allowing for greater flexibility in both cost and featureset.
Software as a Service (SaaS)
The Oracle SaaS suite allows for easy subscription and implementation of cloud-based end-user software, such as HR, procurement, supply chain, service, sales, marketing, and accounting utilities.
There are several advantages to this – first, by implementing this system in an Oracle Private Cloud, you have unrestricted access to your systems from anywhere – not just on-premises. This allows for greater worker flexibility – yet doesn’t compromise security.
In addition, these platforms integrate quickly and effectively with each other, allowing for easier cross platform communication and minimizing wasted time.
Furthermore, your costs can grow with your needs – you can start out with a more basic SaaS implementation, and scale by adding additional capacity and software packages as they become necessary, which can be very helpful for quickly growing companies.
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
The Oracle PaaS suite allows for increased flexibility, speed, and agility for IT teams, developers, and business leaders by offering subscription-based software for use in the development, testing, and deployment of new software features and applications.
This is especially helpful for larger organizations, who often find themselves in need of robust, easily-connected and integrated cloud-based solutions that allow for easy sharing of content, discoveries, and insights that can help speed up the development process.
The most obvious benefit to this is a hugely decreased time-to-market, which can be essential whether you’re developing an important internal tool, or creating a customer-focused application. The faster and more efficient your development work is done, the better – and Oracle PaaS allows your developers and IT team to focus on doing what they love, instead of wrestling with outdated deployment and development platforms.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Oracle IaaS is the most advanced off-premises data center option Oracle has ever offered. More businesses than ever are moving their on-premises workloads to the cloud, and IaaS allows for a rapidly scalable, single-tenant computing experience that’s exceptionally fast, responsive, and easy to use, boasting parallel capabilities to every leading corporate data center.
Yet it can still be a bit scary to move workloads from corporate data centers – that’s why Oracle has created a solution that integrates the same predictability, reliability, governance, and security solutions as leading on-premises data centers.
Oracle’s “Bare Metal Cloud Services” boast a huge variety of high-performance enterprise features, such as a totally elastic design, built to handle any workload with consistent and predictable performance, certified database options, and complete governance by your IT team.
In addition, all Oracle IaaS services provide industry-leading compute/network performance at a reasonable price, and single-tenant isolation, full hypervisor security control, and total transparency for complete control and governance by your company allow you to use your IaaS system just as you would a corporate data center – but for much less.
