Cloud Discovery

Plan your journey to cloud with a trusted co-pilot

Making the right choice when embarking on a move to public cloud can be the determining factor in the successful execution of a digital strategy. We pride ourselves on our methodology and toolset which result in data-driven contextual insights. Our Cloud Discovery team are specialists in delivering executable cloud strategies tailored to our customers. No more guesswork. No wasteful overprovisioning. Just knowing that you’re making the best decisions for tangible business results.

You could not hope for a more engaged partner. Not just the initial discovery piece of our current state of play, but also where the final destination should be on that journey and throughout the process. They didn’t just deal with us as a partner, they took all of our vendors on that journey. It is absolutely invaluable.

From roads to buildings, water pipes and bus shelters, we have been able to connect all of Auckland’s assets digitally for the 1st time. Quite simply, when it comes to Cloud, The Instillery is the best! We have built something quite special, and I know it will provide us with a different way of planning & managing the city, which is really what we want to do, in fact - we need to do.

What We Offer

Executable Strategy

We’ll provide you with a comprehensive report and analysis of your data with our Cloud Calculator, enabling you to make the right choice of cloud platform the first time.

Contextually Aware

Not all organisations operate the same, and not all are configured to take advantage of the agility afforded by public cloud. By reviewing your IT management processes we’ll provide valuable insight into what you need to make the most of cloud.


Our cloud specialists will move your organisation to the cloud, leveraging insights gathered during discovery to deliver you the optimum cloud experience.

Cloud Agnostic

All major cloud platforms offer different features and benefits. Mapping these to your business needs is part of what we do. As Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure partners, we are uniquely positioned to assist in this assessment.


We make it easy for you to contact us, with integrated ChatOps support acting as a direct line to our team of public cloud specialists. We also offer traditional means of contact.

Cloud Co-pilot

Controlling resource consumption can mean introducing business processes that forego the benefits of cloud. With the right visibility and alerting, teams can operate agilely without risk.
