Organisations are accumulating more data and applications, which introduce new complexities on the road to digital transformation. At the same time, user expectations for the performance of applications are higher than ever.
There is a need for a tactical approach to hybrid cloud migration that achieves maximum platform performance while keeping cloud costs predictable. SQL on Azure, powered by Cisco and provisioned by Dimension Data, achieves this while maintaining security, compliance and giving enterprises an edge on innovation.
Innovation through partner integration
Our SQL migration approach combines Cisco and Microsoft’s best technology to produce a seamless and highly optimisable solution.
The Cisco toolset’s powerful analytics provides the information required to plan, migrate and manage the new environment in Microsoft Azure to anticipate intersystem dependencies and significantly reduce unforeseen cloud costs. We address migration complexities by using Cisco to enhance Azure’s value proposition and strengthen the infrastructure on which the apps and data (and ultimately, the users) rely.
These are the essential components of this solution’s technology stack:
Microsoft’s robust Azure platform guarantees application performance and delivers savings on cloud bills. It helps us to minimise the cloud skills gap for businesses while ensuring that app end-user expectations are met consistently.
- AppDynamics (a part of Cisco)
AppDynamics turns IT into a central nervous system that allows you to manage your entire application stack. Maintain application availability across all devices and guarantee flawless application performance.
- Cisco Workload Optimization Manager
Cisco Workload Optimization Manager is intelligent software that automates workload placement, scaling and the capacity to maximise efficiency and performance.
A solution that ticks all the boxes
Organisations that are on digital transformation journeys need application-aware infrastructure in their hybrid cloud environments. Not only does this improve the user experience and employee productivity, but it also comes with a reduction in cloud expenditure. SQL on Azure, powered by Cisco, is a superior choice for any business because it delivers:
- Reduced costs through automation
- An optimised end-user experience across any infrastructure
