Cloud & Architecture Design
Creating large PaaS and SaaS networks for high availability
Cloud Computing Defined
The Cloud is one of the latest technology trends. It’s a term synonymous with 100% availability and global reach. Continuity of Operations (COOP) and uptime have been an ongoing concern for any network or infrastructure team for organizations around the globe. The Cloud is a network architecture that provides data storage, work process support, or any computing need without the fear of data loss or downtime. The Cloud has its advantages but likewise comes with various challenges. Utilizing our Combined Lifecycle Model (CLM), TEDI focuses on assisting customers create, design, implement, or manage Cloud architectures for any need and understands how to address the challenges of cloud implementation
Cloud & Tool Proficiency
Our capabilities surrounding the design, implementation, or maintenance of cloud environments include several cloud types and Microsoft cloud services. TEDI has designed and implemented cloud networks using Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). This includes both data center planning and network support with Cisco, Juniper, and other cloud network supporting vendors. TEDI has performed ground up support from Wide Area Network (WAN) Accelerator configuration to ADFS Security Token membership for cloud security. Beyond the foundation networking architecture, TEDI focuses on the application and database layer technologies to provide customers the ability to decide cloud choice options through custom Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) developed for the specific needs of the customer. In other words, we can automate the cloud delivery system.
TEDI has created collaboration cloud platforms such SharePoint, TFS, and Project Server. Whether you wish to create an internal multi-tenant cloud service or utilize Microsoft’s Cloud Services (e.g. Office 365), TEDI can plan and translate your process to the cloud services you require.

Cloud Computing Services
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
Our primary focus on the PaaS delivery has been focused on Microsoft products including Windows Azure, and automated SharePoint web application delivery models for development. TEDI has composed numerous multi-tenant and multi-web application SharePoint farms for automated delivery of cloud computing and development requirements. Likewise, much of our Azure cloud has focused on automation of deploying new environments and TFS integration. Our PaaS capabilities include the full lifecycle implementation from planning, designing, deploying, customizing, and custom .NET development to focus on niche requirements.
Software as a Service (SaaS)
SaaS technologies and cloud solutions focus on SharePoint, Team Foundation Server, Office Web Apps, Microsoft Exchange, and other applications designed to enhance collaboration and communication. If implementing a new SaaS environment, we ensure scalability and efficient transition through online classes we offer all customers. We also specialize in automating delivery of environments through PowerShell and align your infrastructure policies to the solutions we design with you. As an organization we understand the scope and challenges of running large cloud networks.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
On demand data centers provide the ability to launch new machine power, memory, storage for any IT need. TEDI can aid in the design, architecture, and deployment of these kinds of infrastructure requirements. We will work with your infrastructure team to identify fundamental requirements and work with vendors such as Microsoft or Amazon in providing the necessary networking demands. We can configure the technology and align your process with the need for IaaS service vendors
