Cloud computing can help you significantly cut your IT infrastructure costs. The costs will be also more predictable and will be proportional to the load

Managing the infrastructure is easier on the cloud and it is not necessary to have a big in-house IT staff for maintenance.

Better utilization of IT resources is possible on the cloud. In a traditional IT setup, you would have to budget for the peak load and front load your infrastructure expenditure. However, in a cloud setup, better scalability is possible and resources can be dynamically added on need basis.

In a traditional IT setup, you would have to spend time and resources in installing and configuring each node. In a cloud setup, you can manage your entire computing resource from a single place.

Scalability is hard in a regular server setup. If you get a sudden increase in traffic in your portal, you would not be easily able to add new servers in a timely manner. In a cloud setup, adding and removing servers are very easy easy and manageable.

Cloud computing can offer a robust, distributed storage that can protect you against data loss and service outages.


CFOs and CTOs must understand their IT infrastructure needs and need to plan for it. There are a number of business reasons to move to the cloud, as explained above, and the earlier they decide on their cloud strategy the better it is for the enterprise.

Migrating to Cloud

Cloud Loadbalancers

If you have decided that cloud is the way to go for managing your enterprise infrastructure, you need to give some thought on the migration. Migration is not a simple task and a lot of care must be given to it. It involves migrating confidential information and applications to a place where you might not have a physical access. At SparkMyCloud, we realize the importance of migration and give you unique tools and services to make the migration secure, pain-free and economical.

Advantages of the cloud

Cloud computing offers enormous advantages over traditional ways of managing information on your local desktop or in a LAN. The important advantage involves better access to the data and improved reliability & robustness. Data in the cloud can be easily mirrored and backed up in multiple geographical locations, giving you far higher reliability even if one server location is affected due to natural or man-made disasters. There is also a great advantage of scalability – where you can instantly add new servers and disc spaces to your infrastructure if your website gets a lot of hits. Thus, Cloud computing is a way of utilizing computing infrastructure – applications, data storage, accounting – on the Internet, allowing access to the data and applications from multiple locations.

Our team has experts who can guide you through the right process for the migration. We will hand hold you during the entire process and will help you tap the full power of the cloud.

Migration Issues

Migrating to the cloud typically involves moving the company's files, databases, applications and other services to remote data centers around the world. It has to be done the right way – improper migration can lead to:

  • Data loss
  • Hacker attacks that might compromise or takeover your servers and content.
  • Unavailability of service.
  • Breach of confidential information to competitors and nefarious elements.

Factors to consider before migration

  • Is there a clear financial advantage for managing your servers on the cloud? To answer this you have to compute the cost of running applications in the current way and the cost estimated for operating in the cloud.
  • Are my data and applications secure?
  • Is the content accessible 24/7 from anywhere in the world?
  • Does the infrastructure scale easily?
  • Can my applications be used in the same way as I use in my local desktop? Is there enough virtualization supported by my apps?
  • How robust is the data storage? Are there backups stored elsewhere?

At SparkCloud, we know exactly what is to be done with your migration. We have plenty of experience in maintaining IT infrastructure and have worked on cloud migration for a number of our clients. We know that there is not a single solution for everybody. We take great care to understand your needs and tailor solutions for that.

"Moving applications, systems, and even entire architectures to cloud-based platforms is no easy feat. In many cases it requires a core understanding of data, processes, APIs, services, and other aspects about the existing state of IT before planning the move."

  • Fixing partial Migration: We do the migration in various steps and make sure there is no state inconsistency as we transfer the data and processes.

Release management

Release management involves a collection of processes that ensure that the software produced is of the expected quality and the delivery of the software happens. Release management includes assisting the development team in operations, setting up the staging and test environment and managing the relationship between the development team and the support team. At SparkMyCloud, we have built the expertise on this and we follow the Devops best practices to ensure that your release happens in a pain-free manner. We will act as an operation team who will setup the staging, testing environment in a short span of time in cloud. Also we assist the development team and work along with them as a team to assist in the release management.

As the development processes have gone more agile, with rapid version releases, it becomes imperative that we utilize more scientific management of the release processes. In the earlier models, the release was an infrequent event and people could do with ad-hoc management methods. However, those ad-hoc methods don't work anymore, and we need to develop proper processes. There are plenty of moving parts here and we must make sure that the integration is seamless, and test and production environments are set in the right way.

Release management not only involves quality control but also keeps track of feature creeps (the things that developers add without explicit mention during the planning stage), risk measurements, managing software defects, deployment of the software in the servers etc.

Our release management process involves the following elements:

  • Release cycle management: We help manage your release cycles and keep it rhythmical & periodic to bring a certain discipline and consistency to the development process.
  • Infrastructure Management: Infrastructure forms one of the core elements of deployment and we ensure that the right infrastructure is kept ready. This involves identifying the storage, computing, memory, bandwidth and license requirements of the released software and setting up the systems for it. If the infrastructure fails, the development is rendered waste. By estimating the cost of various infrastructure, we also help developers optimize on the right things.
  • Lightweight processes: One important thing to note in management is to keep the balance between consistency and flexibility. We bring the appropriate mix and balance, tapping into our vast experience and ensure that your developers get the maximum creative license while still following the standards. We incorporate the state of the art lightweight processes that cuts the red-tape and keeps the bureaucracy to a minimum.
  • Automation: In an agile environment, releases are a regular thing and we need to keep the processes ready for automating most parts of it. Automation ensures efficiency and consistency when done the right way. So, we setup periodic tests with report generation and keep everybody updated in an automated fashion.
  • Regression testing: Our team keeps track of the versions and makes sure all the tests including the regression tests happen correctly. Regression involves the addition of new bugs to the software and regression testing is a must to weed out these. We ensure that, at the end of the release cycle the quality of the software that is released will satisfy the customers.
  • Documentation: How many times have you been in the situation where you have gone to deployment and something doesn't work right. Then the developer remarks - “Oh yeah, you have to add this flag to the server settings!” We help you avoid those last minute surprises. The SparkMyCloud release managers handle the documentation process and make sure the developers are writing down the important steps to test, deploy and manage the software.
  • People management: Finally, it is about the people involved. Software is developed for the people, by the people and of the people. We ensure that the team dynamics and relationship are not affected by the release pressures. We make sure that your development team, test team and the infrastructure support teams all remain on the same page and we use the best standards in devops.

Application Development

Application development on the cloud is quite different from application development involving a single server. The biggest advantage of having the application on the cloud is horizontal scalability at low cost. The other advantages include dynamically getting new resources without a big upfront cost and paying for only the resources you use and not for the idle time. In the traditional programming paradigm, your resources are finite and to do more computations you have to buy extra CPUs and storage that might be idle most of the other times.

Cloud computing gives you an opportunity to mix different servers and utilize them on the fly in your API calls. Applications on the cloud need to be able to use multiple CPUs on demand and be able to handle robustly, the down times of any CPU. Google search, for instance, dynamically uses millions of CPUs to serve the user's queries and doesn't fail to return the result if one or more of the CPUs in the cluster fail. We would help you with similar cloud scaling with concepts like MapReduce. At SparkMyCloud, we have gotten a development team that understands the ways to best utilize the cloud computing powers and will help you build scalable applications in languages such as Perl, Python and PHP.

Developing apps on the cloud requires a different way of thinking about the CPUs, the software stack, and the infrastructure. You need to think about the optimum utilization of your processor and storage infrastructure to give you the best return on investment. Also, given that the CPUs might be spread around the transaction costs of passing data around has to be thought out. You need to ponder the best way to utilize the bandwidth and other resources while not being able to control directly, all the infrastructure.

We have evolved several agile methods to implement the application development on the cloud. These methods will take care of activities such as collecting user data, processing them etc and translates them into jobs that could then be taken care of by the next available CPU. We abstract the whole cluster of CPUs to appear like one CPU, with a giant operating system, that would make the front-end development much easier and quicker.

Apart from dynamic utilization of resources we must also think about the maintenance and patching in a different way. Here, we don't have just one or two CPUs that are running our code. We will be constantly bring in new resources and taking out the spent ones. The change of infrastructure should not affect the front end at all, and all this requires more thought and planning.

We can help you plan and design the whole application with the cloud in mind and help you scale your application in a big way. Hoping to see you as our customer for cloud application development.

VOIP Solution in Cloud

VoIP technologies have fundamentally changed how telephony works in an enterprise. With cloud computing, it is destined to change further. Cloud computing offers VoIP providers a significant reliability, cost reduction and scalability that can help take their solution to even greater depths. Sparkmycloud can assist voice service providers and companies running their voice solutions to migrate their IT Infrastructure to cloud.

Here are the advantages of migrating VoIP services to the cloud:

  • Reliability:Voice calls form a very crucial element of enterprise collaboration and a high reliability and availability are expected these days of VoIP providers. However, when you maintain all the servers by yourself high reliability is hard to obtain. Maintaining geo-redundancy and extra resource backups can be very expensive. In a cloud, on the contrary, you can maintain a high degree of availability and reliability as service outages in many particular CPU can be dynamically set right by other resources plugged elsewhere in the cloud.
  • Maintenance: A data center consumes a lot of human and material resources. You need to keep track of the changes in hardware and software ecosystem while also keeping track of security vulnerabilities etc. For a lot of companies the maintenance is out of their scope and is not their core strength. In cloud computing, you worry only about your VoIP service and outsource the maintenance aspects.
  • Data security: A point related to maintenance is keeping track of data security. VoIP might involve confidential calls withing an enterprise and it is very essential to keep this data safe. It might be very expensive in a traditional VoIP operation to ensure the security of your data and protecting it from unauthorized access. In a cloud, the provider might be able to spread the security costs across a number of clients and thus could be able to provide better data security.
  • Cost control: Owning your own data centers can be very expensive. You pay for the hardware resources, software updates, power, cooling and technical support required to maintain the infrastructure. In cloud computing you typically pay only for the resources you utilize and not for the down times. This allows you to maintain a highly efficient operation.

We offer you full support to migrate your VoIP services to the cloud and seamless run it from there.
