Through our long-standing partnerships with VMware, Veeam, and Lenovo we have architected a platform to provide fast, efficient, and secure IT services for critical workloads and data.

Why BlueSky by Blue Connections?

Our desire is to “Partner” with clients to provide “end to end” IT services that can span from “Infrastructure as a Service” to frontline Helpdesk support. Blue Connections is looking for customers with an appetite for “Private Cloud”, but a desire to work closely with a Technology Provider across all facets of their IT landscape. Flexibility and Simplicity of Service offerings is the goal with each of our Managed Service Customers.

We offer a simple and consistent pricing model that suits a business looking to partner with an IT provider that can provide a bespoke service offering, customised to support their specific requirements, that may not be suited to traditional public cloud solutions.

A Fast Path to Cloud for Your VMware Workloads

Since the “events” of 2020, the pressure is mounting on IT leaders to accelerate the pace of moving applications to the cloud. Cloud provides resiliency and scale and a foundation for app modernisation and digital transformation.

But you have to get there first before you can reap the benefits.

Cloud Migration Challenges

  • Infrastructure incompatibilities
  • Cost and time to refactor apps
  • Inflexible target networks and security architectures
  • Unexpected performance issues

Many cloud solutions require significant investment of time, money and IT resources to ensure applications are compatible across environments. Instead, organisations would benefit from a single, consistent infrastructure across a seamless hybrid environment, removing the compatibility problem.

Blue Connection Migration services provide an easy onramp to cloud. Leveraging our migration technology designed specifically for VMware environments, you can migrate your workloads and applications to our cloud without a hitch.
