Get a 360° view of your infrastructure performance and security.

Overview

Your multi-cloud operating environment is becoming increasingly sophisticated as you roll out cloud-based solutions across your organisation.

Frequently, these various private, public, and hybrid environments are limited in their ability to communicate with one another or with your legacy systems and software. 

But what if you could interrogate and analyse your end-to-end IT infrastructure to identify, migrate and manage your cloud workloads and how they relate to one another?

We provide insights across your applications, data and network, with cloud monitoring tools and a 360° view of your performance and security. You can make better decisions by eliminating the usual difficulties that come with scoping a cloud migration. And with our automatic discovery, you can maximise the value of your cloud workload assets and optimise your ideal cloud and network infrastructure.

What is Cloud Connect Direct?

A business-grade private WAN connection to leading cloud service providers.

Every business knows about the benefits of cloud computing but getting set-up can still be a daunting journey with a myriad of providers and services to navigate. Cloud Connect Direct makes it easier and gives a consistent and secure connection to all the benefits the cloud has to offer.

By enabling you to connect directly from our global network using the latest Software Defined Network (SDN) technology, you can be on-net with your preferred providers and Software as a Service (SaaS) in a faster and more reliable way. Direct private WAN connectivity also means your sites appear as on-net sites on your MPLS network, making everything safer and easier to manage.

Cloud Direct Connect was developed to remove the risks associated with cloud-based services, and we’ll ensure your move to the cloud is smooth, cost-efficient, and low-risk. All this without the headache of managing multiple suppliers and physical infrastructure. 

How does Cloud Connect Direct work?

Cloud computing has the potential to transform the way you do business – but not all connections are equal.

Cloud Connect Direct connections can range from 50mb to 2Gb and don’t require any additional access, CPE, or physical connectivity. There are no complicated internet breakouts, routing, DNS changes or firewalls. We manage the service the same way we do our core network, giving you more time to focus on business priorities.

It also lets you build on your network, using our infrastructure to go from testing and development to rolling out cloud-based applications and services faster and with greater security.

And you’ll keep a lid on costs. Cloud Connect Direct is more predictable and cost-effective than buying, configuring, and supporting security for multiple breakouts over the internet. We’ll handle the nitty gritty like managing the connection hour-by-hour. You’ll get performance information at your fingertips.

What is Hybrid Cloud Managed Services?

Shape your future infrastructure with hybrid cloud solutions from BT and NetApp

To thrive in a world of change, businesses need a flexible and agile IT environment designed to flex and grow at speed and scale.

IT workloads must be cloud-optimised, for better performance and user experience (UX) – yet 47% of businesses are not doing this. What’s more, the forced speed of cloud adoption is leaving businesses vulnerable, with 50% at risk of accidentally exposing data or services. Not only that, but working too quickly and without real visibility means that 80% of organisations are set to overshoot their cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) budgets.

BT and NetApp have joined forces to create a solution that distributes workloads across private cloud, public cloud, and on-premises to suit your business and budget. And we ensure all UX is optimised and secured too – from corporate office to home office, data centre, branch, and cloud.

How does Hybrid Cloud Managed Services work?

BT and NetApp – joining forces to create a better hybrid cloud experience.

Through BT Hybrid Cloud Managed Services, we provide connectivity to every major cloud provider on every continent, enabling services in days.

By embedding the NetApp Data Fabric into the BT network, we can provide even greater agility for your data, in the same way SD-WAN* delivers greater agility for your network.

We provide you with the choice and control to manage your data across hybrid cloud, selecting the most efficient, appropriate environment for your industry.

We help you to move workloads and their data to the right place, at the right time, with the right characteristics to accelerate innovation. You can thereby mitigate your operational risk, and access insights to help you make more informed decisions for the future.

We’re committed to delivering the best hybrid cloud solutions on the market. Our Managed AWS service gives you:

  • NetApp Public Cloud Software – Deliver faster performance than with public cloud native storage with Service Level Agreements for services like Cloud Volume Services (CVS) and Azure NetApp Files (ANF)
  • Seamless data transfer – Move your important data between public clouds without having to convert it
  • NetApp efficiencies – Reduce cloud consumption, ingress, and egress costs
  • Cloud tiering – Reduce costs further and run your workloads and data in the most efficient location.

  • Manage your compliance – We’ll make sure all your data is protected from data loss and ransomware, and is compliant globally
