On-Premise Server Infrastructure & Hybrid Cloud

There’s no denying the power of cloud infrastructure in building a modern business.

But, while pure cloud infrastructure is the right answer for some businesses, on-premise infrastructure sometimes remains the preferred route, or least a vital component, if a hybrid approach is considered. Retaining on-premise server infrastructure may be necessary due to factors such as local connectivity, regulatory compliance (although with dedicated UK Azure data centres, this is a much-diminished issue), financial operating model and maintenance of legacy systems.

Astec has a vast experience in building, managing and supporting server infrastructure to support business needs. We have been deploying server technology since Windows NT Server in the early 1990’s through to the current Windows Server 2016 technology. Our Microsoft trained and accredited engineers are experienced with environments from single server applications to large server clusters and virtualised environments.

Hybrid architecture offers the potential to have the ‘best of both worlds’. Microsoft Azure AD allows on premise Active Directory infrastructure to be extended into Azure services enabling advanced security features including Single Sign On and multi-factor authentication methods, creating a seamless, integrated operating environment.

In some instances, a hybrid approach may be as simple as utilising hosted services such as Exchange for email and SharePoint for document storage and collaboration through Office 365 whilst retaining line of business applications within the local environment.

Every business is different, and we will work with you to understand what the key drivers are for you. We will design a solution that not only meets your needs now, but one that will evolve with your business. Whether on-premise, full cloud or a hybrid approach, we will design and deliver a system to make your business work at its very best.

“The joined-up and flexible approach to our system design provided by Astec, has given us real commercial advantage in a demanding market. Astec listened to how we wanted to operate and designed the system to fit and continued to develop the system as our needs evolved. Because of this, we have been able to provide a superior level of service to our members and offer a unique guest experience. We have efficient back of house operations and the key information we need to make important business decisions. Communication with members is simple and targeted at the right members at the right time. We really enjoy working with Astec and the support provided by them throughout the project development and since has been second to none.”
