A Strong Cloud Foundation

Without a strong foundation your cloud will soon collapse.
To make sure that is not the case we believe it is paramount to get the foundations right even before deploying the first application into the cloud.

Business Requirements

A cloud foundation builds on business requirements, not on tools. Tools will be used to implement the business requirements, not the other way around where the choice of tools dictate the business requirements.

  • You work in a highly regulated environment? (e.g. PCI)
  • You can only deploy into approved cloud regions?
  • GDPR applies to you?
  • You need to comply to Sarbanes Oxley (SOX)?
  • Services without owners / cost centres should be automatically terminated?

cloud compliance

These are just examples of requirements that need to be addressed in order to define and build a great cloud foundation. Ignoring those questions and falling for the dreaded get-there-itis (the need to quickly get things done) will lead to subpar results.

Strong Cloud Partner

At Xirus we believe in baking compliance, governance and security into the foundation and ongoing deployments. Those areas are not afterthoughts or tech debt that can be dealt with later “if we get to it”, they are crucial to a successful cloud platform.
Our sole focus on Microsoft Azure means that we are in the best position to help our customers to be successful whatever their business requirements are.
