Routed uses pragmatic approach to cloud to ease enterprise IT

Andrew Cruise RoutedEnterprise IT is sceptical about moving business critical internal operations to the cloud, according to cloud and infrastructure solutions provider Routed

Andrew Cruise, managing director at Routed, said, “While businesses are keen to rid themselves of expensive on-premise hardware, they need to be sure of the availability, performance and security of their chosen cloud platform before considering migration."

The company seeks to help enterprise IT and sysadmins move important workloads to the cloud, disclose where workloads are located, and provide data security and performance information.

According to Cruise, “The hyperscalers are highly motivated to ensure that once customers use their platform they never leave.’’

Routed likes to use the term ‘Pragmatic Cloud’ as IT finds a way to connect all these environments so that customers can use what they need when they need it, whether through private circuits, MPLS, SD-WAN, Direct Connect, Express Route, or the like.

He added, “It’s advisable for enterprise IT to begin migration to the cloud with less critical workloads such as offsite backups to get a feel for the performance and availability of their chosen platform. Routed offers hourly usage billing or a mix of both so that customers can easily understand their costs.”

Cruise stated that one of the biggest challenges to enterprise IT making inroads to migrating to the cloud is the perception that hyperscale providers are the only option available. “Many businesses are not yet aware of custom-built cloud platforms specifically designed for the performance, availability and security demands of enterprise IT,” he concluded.
