Compliance or data storage needs may determine which cloud architecture is right for you.

Find the Right Cloud Architecture for Your Business

Cloud migration can be a great way to streamline productivity and operating costs while improving scalability and performance. But how do you know which cloud architecture you should be implementing?

The development of your cloud architecture will be based on one of the types listed below:

Single Server: This option comes with a lot of security risks, so many consider it to be the least advantageous. One physical or virtual server is used with a server, database, and application encompassing the architecture. A single server may be used in a development project because it allows developers to quickly spin up functionalities.

Single Site: This cloud architecture still utilizes one server, but all layers are split into three tiers. You can choose between two options:

  • Non-redundant three-tier: This architecture is ideal when you need to control operational costs and spending in other areas. The drawback is that if a component failure occurs, it can disrupt traffic flow across the environment. This option is ideal when creating an ecosystem for development and testing.
  • Redundant three-tier: In this option, you will have another set of the same components, which adds some complexity but offers recovery protection.

Multi-Cloud Architecture: This is an option that’s necessary to consider if you are a sizable business that requires scalability and a high level of reliability.

How Do You Find the Right Architecture for Your Business?

There’s really no quick way to determine this. You’ll need to take a strategic approach that evaluates your business requirements. The best first step is to partner with an experienced consultant that will act as your guide through the selection process.

  • Define Your IT Requirements. Before determining any path for your cloud architecture, take time to document your short-term and long-term needs for your IT strategy. These may include compliance requirements, data storage, your estimated number of users, mobile capabilities, and uptime and performance requirements. This documentation will be important as you examine your needs alongside your budget with your cloud development team.
  • Examine Cloud Architecture Options: You’ll need to look at various solutions and do some market research. Assess the pros and cons of public, private, hybrid, and multi-cloud options to see which will best fit your needs. Finally, you’ll need a clear analysis of the performance, pricing, and capabilities of the architectures you’re considering.
  • Make an Informed Decision: This is where a guide is valuable. The right cloud architecture should provide cost savings while improving productivity and efficiency and boosting security. Working with the right partner will help you weigh the options between public and private cloud to deliver the benefits most valuable to your business.

Sports Production Services
Safari’s work at All-Star game was terrific. Our client had a last-minute ask that my team was not aware of until the day a representative arrived on site. Their techs didn’t have a solid plan on what their needs were but Safari’s complete knowledge of networks and sharp inquiries into what our client was trying to do literally saved the day in getting their project off the ground. They could NOT have pulled off what they needed without Safari’s involvement.

I just wanted to put on record my thanks for your help. The connectivity you always provide is the best we get at any tournament worldwide and is always stable. When we had a minor problem this year, you kindly changed things for us several times until, with your help, I was able to identify that it was actually a problem at our base back home! Without your help, I wouldn't have been able to do that. Many thanks, See you next time!
