Aspire's Path to Cloud service supports organisations through decommissioning legacy hardware and migrating to cloud services
Decommissioning legacy infrastructure is no small task.
Many organisations have been deterred from migrating to cloud infrastructure due to the extensive planning and migration activity required to decommission outdated infrastructure and exit in-house data centres. In some cases, organisations have legacy applications and infrastructure that simply can’t be migrated to the cloud.
However, the cost-saving, future-proofing and scalability provided by a combination of state of the art colocation services and cloud-native infrastructure make the challenge entirely worth the effort.
By carrying out a full IT infrastructure assessment, Aspire can provide a concise strategy to seamlessly decommission your legacy infrastructure, migrating your systems to more efficient colocation and cloud locations enabling organisations to exit costly “on premise” data centres. All this with minimal disruption and maximum benefits.
Migrating legacy systems can help reduce business risk and maintenance and running costs associated with an on premise data centre whilst enabling your organisation to operate as efficiently as possible.
Supporting your migration with the right solutions at the right time
No two organisations are the same, nor are their requirements. No one solution fits all.
That is why Aspire offers a portfolio of services aimed at helping customers exit their ageing, costly, datacentre facilities and migrate their IT services to hosted co-location datacentre services and cloud services.
Our service begins with a thorough IT infrastructure assessment, to gain a complete understanding of your IT landscape. This gives us a clear understanding of which of our services will benefit your organisation and when it is best to utilise them.
This assessment is the basis for a strategic roadmap for your organisation's migration. Migrating your services at your pace and ensuring minimal disruption and early realisation of benefits

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I save costs with cloud migration?
Organisations can make significant reductions in their IT hosting budgets by exiting costly on premise data centres and migrating to our cloud and colocation services. Our state of the art data centre facilities benefit from economies of scale when it comes to purchasing power and these benefits are passed on to our customers. Migrating to our cloud and colocation services helps organisations transition to an operating costs (OPEX) model which removes the costly capital investment "price shock" associated with maintaining on premise facilities.
Is cloud computing greener?
Our primary data centre, Stellium, is highly energy efficient and 100% of the power is sourced from REGO-certified green renewable energy helping organisations to make inroads in their carbon reduction plans.
What happens with systems that aren't suitable for cloud migration?
For systems that are not cloud native or for which there may be significant effort and planning required to migrate to cloud we offer our colocation services in our advanced datacentres which enable organisations to reap the benefits of exiting on premise facilities without having to go 100% cloud native.
Do I need to use all products in the Path to Cloud range?
No - the products and services in our Path to Cloud portfolio can be used in any combination to meet the specific needs of your organisation so you benefit from ultimate flexibility on your cloud journey.
Will migration improve performance?
Historically organisations have chosen on premise data centres due to their proximity to IT end users to ensure optimal performance. Modern networks have subsequently made this irrelevant and our unique Ultrafast Dedicated Connectivity solutions offering speeds of up to 100Gbps and sub-millisecond latency mean organisations can retain all the benefits of ultra fast compute without the costs of on premise facilities
