Founded by a team of former Microsoft architects, developers, and cybersecurity professionals, UnifyCloud is a trusted source of innovative and secure cloud computing solutions. As the Microsoft Partner of the Year 2022, UnifyCloud is a highly regarded information technology and cloud solutions provider specializing in cybersecurity, compliance, and cost management.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by Microsoft for something that is so close to the core of our mission as a company — helping businesses and partners with data-driven application and database modernizations and migration to Azure and realize all the benefits the cloud can deliver. To be honored yet again is proof that UnifyCloud and our CloudAtlas platform are delivering for customers, partners, and Microsoft,” said Marc Pinotti, CEO and Co-Founder of UnifyCloud.
Providing services, solutions, and expertise that allow clients to resolve their cloud challenges is the primary aim of UnifyCloud. Recently, a Fortune 500 real estate company that approached UnifyCloud had to house data and legacy apps but doing so in-house was not efficient in the long run. Intending to migrate its APAC data center and apps to Azure PaaS in less than a year, the company had set a tight deadline. However, UnifyCloud was able to tackle this task head-on. “If performed manually, this type of assessment would take more than 2,010 days to complete,” remarked CEO Pinotti. He says, “Using CloudPilot, we were able to dramatically expedite the assessment and complete it in record time– just 134 minutes!” UnifyCloud also identified $4.5 million in potential annual savings through this process.
Besides cloud migration, cloud security is a forte of the UnifyCloud team. The security journey with UnifyCloud starts by understanding the client’s IT environment. This is followed by identifying the gaps, potential, and redundancies in the client’s security system. Once a plan is developed, and required changes are prioritized, the client can take the necessary steps to create a more secure IT environment. Based on the results obtained from the system after the changes have been made, the cloud security performance is measured and managed accordingly.
With every business looking for ways to modernize their data, many skip out on proper planning and strategizing during the cloud migration. With UnifyCloud, clients can realize the benefits of a well-defined plan before approaching cloud migration. UnifyCloud follows the Microsoft Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF) for Azure. This framework is essential to bring together cloud adoption best practices from experts, partners, and customers. It also provides the tools, guidance, and narratives that cloud architects, IT professionals, and business decision-makers need for their cloud migration to achieve desired business outcomes.
Apart from the usual services, UnifyCloud also seeks to be sustainable in cloud technology. When a business moves its data to the cloud, it is more likely to reduce the company’s carbon footprint by 98%. Emissions from IT infrastructure can be difficult to measure with so many inputs — hardware to power, physical space to manage, and the large supply chain involved compared to other sources of damage.
CloudAtlas is a platform developed by UnifyCloud that can provide insights into the environmental impacts of on-premises infrastructure and how an Azure cloud-based environment can reduce its carbon footprint. With provisions for emissions reduction analysis, cloud infrastructure agnosticism, and tracking company carbon usage over time, the CloudAtlas report allows users to compare options and see how their carbon footprint can be reduced.
Through successful partnerships with Microsoft, UnifyCloud continues to provide the best services to clients and has rightfully earned a spot among the top names in cloud computing solution providers in 2022.
