Public Cloud

Match your workloads to the right public cloud service for
the lowest possible TCO.

The benefits of moving some workloads to a public cloud service are well recognised. What is sometimes not appreciated enough is that such services are highly differentiated in their technical specifications, security and total cost of ownership.

5i has relationships with all the major public cloud service providers, as well as providing our own public cloud service. The value we offer is matching workloads to the right service for the lowest possible TCO. Once initiated, we provide ongoing orchestration and support across all services.

5i’s public cloud service is hosted in our highly connected and resilient data centres. With annual contracts, it provides customers with many of the advantages of the large public cloud providers, such as AWS and Microsoft Azure, but at a far lower TCO. It is highly cost-effective for relatively static workloads that customers need to be delivered over an extended period.

Public cloud services from Amazon, Microsoft and Google offer unlimited elasticity. They are perfect for workloads that may peak rapidly. While costs scale in line with utilisation, these services are high cost so the business case must be carefully considered before hosting a workload with them.
