Technology Spa Covid-19 Emerge Program

150 150 Jason Oglesby

Technology Spa is helping our customers meet challenges in the “New Normal”. We have reference-able success in strengthening and supporting Work From Home (WFH) initiatives, planning, optimizing and securing hybrid and cloud-based infrastructure. Our experts have years of experience and leading edge certification and training to deliver the outcomes needed to meet short and long term demands in the “New Normal”. Furthermore, our team can provide fully managed services or fractional experts to help deliver the expertise you need during transition and ongoing operation.

In order to help customers rapidly and cost effectively meet their most critical needs during this time, we are introducing the “Emerge Initiative” at Technology Spa. This program seeks to target issues and initiatives our customers are seeing as they “Emerge” from quarantine and simply package services that provide end to end assessment, evaluation and action focused on dealing with the challenges outlined above. These include:

  1. Enterprise remote workforce enablement. Our team will analyze your current setup and put together a plan to help you meet the needs of your remote team while improving your security posture, promoting performance and addressing compliance in the process.
  2. Return to work enablement. Assist with implementing solutions to help with COVID-19 Crisis Management through emergency outreach, self-reporting, and exposure management tools that provide out-of-the-box portal, processes, workflows, and dashboards.
  3. Risk assessment: this is a short engagement to evaluate your environment to identify weaknesses before they are exploited and make recommendations against best practices to remediate. This service is very helpful to customers who had to move quickly to support work from home (WFH). As such, the analysis will include (but not limited to) identification of vulnerabilities introduced by WFH enablement, and recommendations to help provide durable and scalable security to support a remote workforce ongoing.
  4. Cloud Strategy Planning, Operational Transformation, Cost Optimization. Many of our customers are needing to shift into a hybrid cloud model to address the “New Normal” for their business. We are helping them to ensure they meet the needs of the business while adding the elasticity, and agility needed in a cost optimized model.
  5. Fractional expert transitional resources and managed services. Our team will provide you with the expertise you need as you transition your enterprise compute into the new normal. This can include expert advisors to help with day to day architecture, planning and security to a full 24×7 SOC/NOC and helpdesk. We can provide subject matter experts at the point and time and for the duration your team needs while you transition, allowing you to fully understand your long-term needs before bringing on FTE.

We would like the opportunity to help you make this transition. Please contact us to get started!

Migrating DEC, HP and Sun Servers into the cloud

 Learn how much you could save by switching to Stromasys

Are you running critical legacy applications on obsolete and unsupported hardware from Sun Microsystems, DEC or HP?

You may benefit from a new program in which Technology Spa is partnering with Stromasys to reduce the cost, risk and effort needed to migrate legacy systems into the cloud, while extending the life of your business critical systems running on DEC, HP, and Sun servers. Additionally, through Technology Spa’s partnership with the major cloud providers, we can help our customers take advantage of historical incentives and funding to help reduce migration and operating costs.

Are you facing the decision, in support of new work from home requirements, of accelerating your migration to cloud or making an additional capital investment in the data center just to prop up systems that a few months ago were only accessible inside of the corporate firewall?

Are you running into compliance issues when faced with aging hardware and applications but are technologically locked into legacy platforms that are expensive to maintain and at risk of failure?

By removing the classic hardware from the equation, Stromasys Charon™ solutions greatly reduces the risk of unplanned downtime and failure. Furthermore, migration into the cloud adds elasticity and improves reliability and availability using redundant hardware and data replication technologies not available in classic hardware.

Stromasys is a pioneer in the field of cross-platform server virtualization technologies and provides Charon™ emulation software solutions for classic DEC, HP, and Sun systems. This software makes it possible for x86 servers to mimic older (legacy) servers, so that the original applications can keep running on modern hardware — without modification, so no recompiling, re-certifying, nor migrating source code.

Stromasys cross-platform server virtualization presents an alternative to full migration and searching for used parts. With Stromasys, you simply swap out your end-of-life (EOL) classic hardware and move your entire software stack to the new virtualized environment — increasing performance, lowering cost, and reducing risk — all at once, and in a matter of days. Stromasys has the ability to serve its clients globally with its products, services, and support that make virtualization not only a smooth and low-cost transition, but also the smartest way forward.

Technology Spa engages with customers to evaluate these legacy systems for modernization and migration into the public cloud. Our team not only looks to find compatibility with the virtualization stack, but also analyzes dependencies, and optimizes across the public cloud stack to emphasize reliability, scalability and performance while addressing your budget needs.

My team would like the opportunity to help you in evaluating the fit and benefits of using Charon™ and migration to public cloud. Please use the “Contact Us” button below to get started.
