Understanding the Cloud is important for most organisations – and how this impacts, benefits and helps to make life easier could help your business to succeed. If your organisation’s data growth is impacting your back-up and storage, or you don’t have enough space to house your servers or even enough resource to manage them plus you want to respond quickly to the changing needs of your users, then a cloud or hosted solution could be the ideal solution.

From private cloud (including converged infrastructure and management tools), to hosted virtual private clouds (in our own hosting centre) , BT Ireland can help you to achieve the best return on investment and streamline your organisational requirements.


  • Create your future cloud strategy and roadmap.
  • Choose the right solution for your business strategy and requirements – private, virtual private or public cloud options.
  • Understand how virtualising your systems can improve your organisational IT efficiency.
  • Consolidate your hosting environment to improve efficiency and manageability.
  • Ensure that your data and architecture remain protected and secure.

We can help you to manage the complexity of a hybrid IT environment ensuring that your business has the tools to increase your organisational efficiency can help make your business successful. Understanding the impact on capital expenditure, management and maintenance for your organisation, plus only paying for what you use, means that a cloud solution needs to be considered.


Cloud Assessment Roadmap – building a plan for the future

Understanding your IT roadmap and how cloud fits into your organisational strategy is a key element of your planning process. Having a view of your current portfolio and its optimum mix can help you build a plan for success. Ensuring that your plan incorporates or considers cloud solutions, means that you have a clear vision of how your company will meet its goals over the next three to five years.

Virtual Private Cloud.

Do you know you want to have a private cloud based solution but would rather someone else manage it on your behalf? We have the knowledge and experience to provide this for you.

Depending on what your requirements are such as outsourcing the running of your applications, platform, infrastructure or a combination of all, we will understand your needs and build a virtual private cloud for you. You realise the benefits of cloud whilst only paying for the service you want rather than the equipment or licences required to deliver it.

Hosting – do it yourself, co-location or fully managed.

Every company needs to run and maintain their IT infrastructure and that often means having numerous servers and equipment on their premises which need to be managed, maintained, upgraded and monitored. This can be a costly exercise both in monetary terms, but also in manpower hours and experience. Failure isn’t an option as IT systems are vital to success and are the backbone of an organisation. BT Ireland can provide companies with secure locations to house the business critical servers that power their organisation - all within a physically secure environment. Companies can focus on their business and enjoy the benefits of the highest quality infrastructure. The choice of Co-lo provides clients with options for the support and maintenance of hardware and software delivered through BT Ireland.

Public Cloud – looking at the options available to help make you successful and understanding how a shared cloud can give you what you need.

Whilst the solution is delivered by a third party, you need to be able to understand the options available to you and trust the advice you are being given. Public Cloud might be the right solution for your business – but being sure you have made the right decision is vital. With a range of applications, solutions and services available, we have the knowledge, expertise and understanding to ensure that the solution you choose is suitable for your business.

Integration services – bringing it all together: what you already have and what you need – and ensuring it all works effectively and efficiently.

Many customers have often identified an end goal but need expert advice on which technologies are most appropriate and the resources to help implement them in the most efficient way with low risk and a high quality return. The Technical Consultancy Team can help customers to ensure that the right technology, design and implementation processes are adopted to get it right first time.

Security – ensuring high levels of security across all your data and server needs.

One of the most common questions asked when looking at a cloud solution is around the security, integrity and confidentiality of deploying this type of solution. BT Ireland have experience and expertise with security across multi-levels of applications, servers, data and solutions – ensuring that whatever you choose you can rest assured that your security is taken care of.

Business Applications – a range of cloud based applications to help you run your business and service and sell more to your customers.

As the portfolio is based in the Cloud you benefit from powerful business applications that can be run anywhere and anytime over the web, without expensive IT infrastructure and maintenance. The solutions are ideal for any size of organisation – creating cost efficiencies to enable your business to compete more effectively in the market place while maximising sales potential and customer advocacy.
