Home / Cloud Solutions

It’s no surprise that Infrastructure was the fastest growing cloud service last year; as part of this growth in cloud services Life IT provide a range of robust and secure cloud hosting solutions for Domino (sometimes known as Domino Cloud or Domino Hosting), OS400 and AIX environments.

We combine our technical expertise with these hosting solutions to migrate and support your system in secure private or hybrid environments. Our cloud-based DR solutions can save you secondary data centre space and maintenance costs whilst ensuring continuity for your business. Plus, we can deliver system administration, operational support and database administration for your associated databases.

Life IT can support your organisation to gain the flexibility and computing power of the Public Cloud for basic and non-sensitive computing tasks, while keeping business-critical applications and data on premises, safely behind a company firewall on a Private Cloud. 

Private & Hybrid Cloud

Our private and hybrid cloud solutions can solve many of the issues you face with legacy (and current) server environments, by migrating these workloads to a modern platform we can improve SLAs, scalability, reliability and availability.

With Life IT’s cloud solutions, your data is retained entirely in the UK. Our platform is ISO certified (Information Security Management, IT Service Management and Quality Management System) and has achieved UK Cyber Essentials standard.

Scale computing resources and eliminate the need to make massive capital expenditures to handle short-term spikes in demand, with a Hybrid Cloud Solution from Life IT. Only pay for the resources you temporarily use instead of having to purchase, program and maintain additional resources and equipment that could remain idle over long periods of time.

Public Cloud

We also offer a range of public cloud computing services such as IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure and AWS. We take responsibility for all management and maintenance of the system to reduce the burden on your organisation of purchasing, maintaining and managing on-premises hardware and application infrastructure.

Our Public Cloud solutions can be deployed faster than on-premises infrastructures and offer an almost infinitely scalable platform. Employees can access the same application from any office or branch and on any device, all they need is access to the network.

With our implementation services, your public cloud can be as secure as the most effectively managed private cloud implementation thanks to our security methods which include intrusion detection and prevention systems.

What others say about us

“Having migrated from IBM Domino to Microsoft Office 360 (Business Cloud), we are delighted with the results – and have 1000 happy internal customers who much prefer Outlook to Domino. Life IT were flexible, fair and supportive when schedules had to change due to other Gurit projects.  We had direct access to engineers and technical staff and a dedicated team who were easy to work with.  The whole project was done in a very friendly environment and I would definitely recommend Life IT for these sorts of migration projects.”

Henrikki Häkkänen,
Global IT Services Manager — Gurit Services AG

“Without the professional and expert support of Life IT, we wouldn’t have had the quality product we now have. They gently but insistently pushed the boundaries of our assumptions during the analysis phase, getting us to challenge our mind-sets and think outside the box. They then worked seamlessly as part of our team and delivered to time and to budget – no mean feat”.

James Hacking
Head of Technical Services—HCSS

“As we’d already invested significantly in Lotus Notes and Domino, a solution that built on our existing investment and skills was ideal. Life IT understood what was important to us and delivered a solution that met our needs. We’ve already seen the number of ‘distress calls’ to the sales office reduce as our sales managers can easily access customer data off line wherever they are and we’ve had positive feedback all round about the ability to update their call reports instantly on the road.”

Colin Mosley
Head of IT—Polyflor

“The Life IT solution has provided us with a significant reduction in support and maintenance costs and is an easy to use, more resilient and more easily maintainable system. As a business that handles thousands of transactions a day from 12 different own brand or white label websites it was vital that the whole process was seamless and, with the renewal of the support and maintenance contract from our existing supplier looming, it was also vital that the project came in on deadline. Life IT achieved this and more as they provided us with additional MI functionality and supported our staff whilst transferring their skills.’

Andrew Kirkham
Head of IT Development—DLR

“Life IT are doing a great job providing a very professional and efficient service. They are almost silently efficient and just get things done – only escalating issues when necessary. Their expertise in the AS400 is a key strength ensuring a real depth to their service and they keep us up to date with advances in technology too. So from an AS400 perspective I have very little to worry about.”

John Geary
IT Service Delivery Manager

“After the restructure I was left with a critical resource gap which quickly needed filling, having worked with Life IT before I gave them a call. Their response was swift and efficient. They now work as a virtual Center Parcs help desk team providing a strength and depth of support. Their flexible working based on a time bank system is real value for money. So not only do I get an expert and efficient service, I have reduced my resource costs!”

Kerry Moakes
Head of IT—Center Parcs

“We wanted flexible support to ensure 24/7 cover and Life IT worked with us to deliver this. Life IT has become integrated into the Bentley way of working and their role has expanded into looking at the technical side of the application as well as the support. “Our relationship has been built up over a significant period of time and both sides have worked hard to develop a supplier/customer relationship that can be used as a model throughout Bentley. We are now in the position where we have a pro-active partnership, Life IT are treated as part of Bentley, and that is a credit to them”.

Chris Sayers
Senior IS Manager—Bentley Motors
