Highly available solution with redundancy and replication
Public cloud environments are one of the most common variants of cloud computing deployments. The cloud servers and storage resources are owned and operated by a third-party cloud service provider such as Coreix and delivered via the Internet. In public cloud, all hardware, software, and other supporting infrastructure are owned and managed by the cloud provider. Coreix Cloud, Microsoft Azure and AWS are examples of public cloud.
Within a public cloud you utilise the same hardware, storage, and network devices as other organisations and businesses - We call these tenants. In these solutions, you have access to services and manage your footprint using a web browser.
Public cloud deployments can be utilised for a wide array of solutions such as providing e-mail services, online applications, storage applications in addition to testing and development environments.
The key advantages of public clouds:
Lower costs: There is no need to purchase hardware or software since you pay for the services you use.
No maintenance: Since the service provider provides this work on your behalf.
Near-unlimited scalability: Resources available on-demand are there to meet your business requirements.
High reliability: A vast network of servers within a highly available datacentre environment ensures against failure.
Public cloud users are not really optimising their costs. It is estimated they waste 30% of their cloud spend*. Coreix can help you achieve a more optimised solution for your cloud footprint.

Coreix offers consultation services above what you can receive directly from Azure or AWS. We work with our clients to optimise the services we provide to our clients going beyond consultancy to achieve a model that helps clients achieve a solution that works for their business.
We cover the basic five pillars:
Cost: Finding the most cost-effective solution for your workloads.
Operational Excellence: This includes the ability to support the development and run workloads effectively and to gain insight into operations and continuously improve supporting processes and procedures.
Performance Efficiency: Analysing current solutions and finding the best performance for the workloads that you currently operate. This is the ability to use computing resources efficiently to meet system requirements, in addition to maintaining efficiency as demand changes and technologies evolve in time.
Reliability: Adding the required resilience to all solutions developed, whether that be from high availability, horizontal scaling and load balancing or clustering technologies. It deals with the ability of a workload to perform its intended function correctly and consistently.
Security: The ability to protect data and systems in addition to assets to take advantage of cloud technologies in order to improve security.
In the consultancy phase, we work with our clients to define a solid strategy and a set of requirements. We undertake discovery and assessment of your current technological estate and architect to your targetted platform
Public cloud services allow you to move and innovate faster without the worry of resources or infrastructure. It offers a nearly limitless pool of raw compute, storage and networking components. The solution can be utilised for services such as virtual machines, storage and networking.
Unlike other providers our public cloud has SLAs of 100% uptime, 100% infrastructure availability and 100% network availability with our 5-minute response 24/7/365 as standard meaning unlike other providers there is always someone available to assist you.
Azure at its core is a public cloud computing platform with solutions including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS) that can be utilised for services such as analytics, virtual machines, containerisation, storage, networking, or more elaborate use cases such as Business Intelligence (BI) and Machine Learning (ML). Azure can be utilised to replace or augment other technological solutions.
Microsoft is one of the market leaders in public cloud and has made it relatively easy for organisations to start utilising the cloud.
In general, the Microsoft Azure cloud platform is a collection of over 200 products and cloud services engineered to help customers build out technological solutions for hosting their infrastructure. You have the ability to build, run and manage applications across multiple clouds. Coreix can help you on your Azure journey with our consultancy and support services in combination with our partner agreements.Looking for more information?
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is one of the most comprehensive public cloud platforms and offer over 200 fully-featured services. Coreix can help you on your AWS journey with our consultancy and support services in combination with our partner agreements.
AWS has invested significantly into services and has significant quantities of features within those services. These services include infrastructure technologies such as compute, storage, and simple databases to more emerging technologies such as Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in addition to Data Lakes and Internet of Things (IoT).
AWS is architected to be flexible yet secure cloud computing. The core infrastructure is built to satisfy the security requirements for such applications as military and global banks. This is backed by cloud security tools in addition to security, compliance, and governance services.
Cloud-first strategies have become standard over the years and we have seen a massive increase in public cloud utilisation.
