Cloud 

For each organization, the move to Cloud involves a different type of journey altogether. We understand the specific needs of clients and engage them within their own business models to meet their goals. We provide a comprehensive range of cloud services from consulting, architecture, design and adoption to management throughout the Cloud life cycle. Marlabs helps organizations master the disruptive change brought in by the new digital technologies and evolve new business models. Cloud technology is helping many enterprises become more agile and efficient. Enterprises who were a bit shy to embrace the Cloud in the past have now started moving critical workloads to cloud platforms to reap the benefits. While the Cloud may not be the perfect solution for all their business needs, there are obvious and immediate benefits of moving the right application stack to the Cloud and efficiently and securely managing them in the Cloud.
 
Marlabs helps our customers integrate their legacy systems with Cloud solutions, maximizing scalability, performance and availability. We accelerate their speed-to-value by leveraging our expertise, frameworks, and partnerships, while reducing risk. To maximize the potential of cloud computing, we address all the accompanying challenges such as security, availability, performance, compliance, integration, and visibility.

 

Marlabs’ managed cloud services handle the maintenance and administration of cloud servers running on any public/private cloud platform. Our team of cloud architects, systems administrators, and engineers monitor and respond to issues 24/7. Marlabs’ OneConsole® is a robust monitoring and management platform for mission critical applications running in public and private Clouds.
 
OneConsole® Unified Service Management platform provides the single pane of glass for the service and operations management of cloud hosted workloads. OneConsole is a unified tool to provision, manage, govern, and secure applications—whether they are on premise or cloud hosted. With Marlabs managed cloud services, our customers can be rest assured that their cloud applications are in safe-hands allowing them to focus on their business, rather than worrying about day-to-day management of the apps.

Marlabs managed end-to-end information technology needs for a software rating board company in the entertainment industry while enabling them to concentrate on their core competency.
Marlabs helps customers tackle devops challenges by identifying the obvious bottlenecks in processes and technologies and in implementing a seamless, less disruptive devops framework. Our devops framework is cloud ready and helps customers achieve the true potential and benefits of cloud computing.
 
DevOps is the shared cultural approach between developers and operations personnel in releasing a product or a piece of code. It is based on agile development principles for both dev and ops by pushing continuous engineering and deployment. The devops approach focuses on addressing challenges such as release backlogs, silo’ed teams, dev team deploying changes to production, ops not being involved in release management, and support push-backs. Other challenges include undefined support boundaries, lack of efficient automation, longer release cycles, and lost opportunities for business.

Marlabs set up a secure hosted private cloud for providing online Web and content management services. Marlabs’ solution included Windows Server management, backup, and recovery. We provided 24x7 infrastructure and application monitoring.
Marlabs provides hosted private cloud solutions for customers who need to comply with stringent regulations, which prevent them from leveraging public cloud solutions. We offer VMware, Hyper-V, as well as OpenStack based fully isolated agile infrastructure. Our managed services provide the end-to-end support for the hosted private cloud using global network operations centers. Customers can also use Marlabs hosted cloud as their DR Datacenter.
 
Marlabs has its state-of-the-art primary datacenter in Piscataway, NJ with fully redundant availability features. We also have multisite network operations center (NOC) for monitoring and management. Our solutions are SSAE type II compliant, highly secure with two factor authentication, and have ISO 27001 compliant information security practices.

Hybrid cloud is the practical or realistic approach when organizations who can’t move everything to public Cloud. Latency, regulatory or availability requirements of certain business apps might prevent them moving to the public cloud platform. However, some components of the entire stack could be hosted in public cloud for its benefits. Critical components can still stay in-house. In this scenario, hybrid is the way to go. 
 
A cloud management platform (CMP) is essential to manage and govern a hybrid infrastructure effectively. CMPs enable self-service requests and automated delivery.  Using Marlabs’ Unified Service Management Platform, OneConsole®, our customers can provision applications either in private or on public platforms and manage them under single support and governance framework.

With our deep technology expertise, Marlabs can enable customers to identify and implement the right strategy for their disaster recovery programs. By leveraging the cloud as a potential DR solution, we can help lower capex requirements and also implement the DR site. Loss of productivity or service unavailability even for an hour or a few minutes can have huge financial implications today. Service availability is as critical as data availability. Computer infrastructure at the DR site will bring services back online with backed up data.
 
Whenever disaster renders entire IT systems inoperable, organizations relying on traditional tape backup are likely to face an uphill battle. Mere availability of ‘data’ will not help them quickly get back to normal. Turning services back on could take days or even weeks. Marlabs can help organizations achieve better RPO and RTO objectives with lesser capex than ever before with new-age replication and snapshot technologies and with cloud-based solutions.

Marlabs helps customers save significant cost through portfolio rationalization and moving some of their workloads to cloud platforms. Picking one application and evaluating its cloud portability is not especially difficult. If there are no fundamental changes to the architecture, the only prerequisite is to assess the security and compliance requirements and then ‘lift and shift’ to the cloud.  
 
However, things are not that straightforward when enterprises are on the verge of a radical IT transformation and are potentially undergoing an enterprise level portfolio rationalization exercise to consolidate the IT assets. Marlabs uses a holistic approach to evaluate the cloud readiness of the business applications. We help customers assess the cloud portability of their application portfolio using our own tools frameworks (CMAT®) and also facilitate their migration to the Cloud. We use analytical methods to rate the application fitment for the Cloud. Our methodology touches all the aspects of the right candidature—technology, risks, and business viability.
