Minimum Viable Cloud

A Minimum Viable Cloud (MVC) is a secure public cloud environment running at least one client application and is designed to exercise an organization’s muscles, demonstrate the viability of cloud services and engage all necessary stakeholders.

Building a Minimum Viable Cloud is a cornerstone of CTP’s Cloud Adoption Program and has proven itself to be the key to unlocking mass migration to public cloud for clients across industries.

Your Shortest Path to Value in the Cloud

Developed from over 400 engagements, an MVC is essentially a secure cloud environment that can be built on any public cloud platform, typically during the Build Phase of the Cloud Adoption Program.

We align our comprehensive security protection to Cloud Security Alliance guidelines, and ensure maximum security protection with data protection and availability, encryption of data at rest and in transit, log management and analytics, network traffic inspection and protection, and by segmenting the network into multiple zones.

Supporting Both AWS & Azure
