Hybrid Cloud Design and Build

Hybrid cloud helps fill in the gaps between public and private cloud resources, allowing the provision of smarter workloads and easy scaling based on demand. We’ll enable you to to make informed decisions and investments so you can make hybrid cloud an operational reality, with an optimal balance between cost, performance and risk. When combined with our security services, we can safeguard compliance and ensure you’re continually up and running in a secure way.

We have developed repeatable blueprints for every stage of the hybrid cloud lifecycle. From defining roadmaps and staging deployments, to migrating workloads and enabling orchestration, we bring certainty and consistency to hybrid cloud design and build.

Platform-as-a-Service Design and Build

Maintaining servers can be a costly exercise. If all you need is a database, we can help you get set up with a service such as Azure, which will host on their platform. Your servers or application endpoints connect to the database address and start working. The service provider performs all maintenance, including patching of the database system.  This makes it highly available across a region, with backup within the platform or to a 3rd party system. The result is significant cost and time savings for your business.

Infrastructure-as-a-Service Design and Build

Your Windows and Linux servers can be hosted in a public cloud (Azure), private (on premise or in a New Zealand datacentre) or hybrid (a mixture of both), depending on your requirements. We can help design your platform to optimally use a private, public or hybrid cloud as if the infrastructure was still on premise. You only pay for what you use, so if you run an 8am-5pm business, you can programmatically turn off your systems overnight and save over 50% of your computing costs. If you don’t need systems at the weekend, the cost savings are even greater.

Software-as-a-Service Design and Build

With a Software-as-a-Service product such as Microsoft Office 365, no element of the system is your responsibility: you consume the service and the provider takes care of the rest. A great number of accounting systems, CRMs and ERPs function completely as a SaaS platform and cost is linear to the number of your employees, resulting in a predictable and manageable IT spend. We’ll help you to design your SaaS system so that it works optimally for your business.

LAN/WAN Design and Build

Our network team will design and build a network that enables effective monitoring at both the head office and branch level, nationally and internationally. This allows your IT support team to manage your network effectively, anticipating and resolving issues before they become a problem.

We’ll also consider usage needs from all parts of the business, not just users and applications, ensuring your LAN and wider WAN have the necessary bandwidth to cope with increasing demands from data backups across multiple locations. The result is a fast, robust and flexible network that supports your optimal infrastructure, whether it’s in the cloud or on premises.

Firewall Design and Build

Regardless of whether your systems reside on premise or in the cloud, your business network needs protection. Next generation firewalls can identify malicious inbound or outbound network traffic, utilise explicit rules to lock down web and system traffic, and report on user and system usage. Firewall vendors release updates to their detection systems rapidly, so exploits or known malware communication addresses are blocked.

Firewalls have many other features, such as bridging the internet connection between the office and an Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform, so that all communications are encrypted. Origin’s networking team has deep experience of designing and implementing firewalling for businesses at all points of the complexity scale.
