Self-Service NaviCloud®

Navisite’s Self-service NaviCloud platform helps empower clients to quickly launch new cloud environments and scale cloud resources, such as servers, networks, storage, bandwidth and more. All Self-Service NaviCloud resources are provisioned into one of Navisite’s secure, enterprise-grade data centres in either the US or UK. Self-Service NaviCloud is optimal for select scenarios in which expert Managed Cloud is not required, such as short-term projects and test/dev environments. 

Self-Service NaviCloud is built on VMware’s vCloud Director® technology. Clients have the option of managing their self-service cloud environment through either the Navisite-designed Proximity client portal or the native vCloud Director user interface. Additionally, clients have access to VMware APIs to support further system integration.

To better enable clients to migrate their legacy environments to Self-Service NaviCloud with ease, Navisite offers multiple cloud onboarding resources and services...

  • Managed Cloud Migration - leverage Navisite Professional Services to assess, plan, and execute the complete migration.

Selecting a Hybrid Cloud Strategy

Straight Managed Cloud or Self-Service Cloud are not the only options available. In fact, clients often look to Self-Service Cloud for test/dev, and then transition workloads to Managed Cloud when they are production-ready. 

Moreover, while transitioning all legacy workloads to the cloud is often the ultimate goal, initially, leveraging a hybrid approach frequently makes the most sense. An organization may choose to keep a difficult-to-transition workload in a physical data centre, for example, while proceeding to transition all other workloads to a cloud environment.
