Azure Designs, Migrations and Builds
Agile and cost-effective infrastructure
GCBlue has many years of experience designing, building and managing Azure environments for large organisations such as NSW Health.
After reviewing your current environment or project requirements, we select the correct building blocks from Microsoft and other Azure vendors to design and build a secure, agile and cost effective Azur environment for your requirements. Once the environment is live we can manage the environment or act as augmented support, assisting where required and acting as extended members of your own team.

Secure Cloud Collaboration Repository
GCBlue designed, deployed and manage the SAPHE infrastructure, which is a highly secure Azure based envronment which allows internal users and from external organisations such as universities and health providers to collaborate and analyse data in a secure and centralised environment. The stringent security requirements posed some unique technical challenges and the technologies deployed by GCBlue include Azure Virtual Machines, Azure SQL Server, Windows 2019 and Active Directory, Office 365, SharePoint, Power Apps, FortiGate Next Generation Firewalls and supporting Azure technologies.

We can migrate your on premises Exchange email infastructure to Microsoft 365, design, deploy and manage Teams and migrate your existing data to SharePoint.
Thompson Health Care Cloud Migration
Microsoft 365 and Azure
GCBlue was engaged to design Thompson Health Care’s new Azure and Microsoft 365 environment, and to then migrate the on premises Exchange infrastucture to Microsoft 365. GCBlue also migrated the existing application servers to Azure, and setup site to site links so that accessing the Azure applications from sites and offices was secure and seamless. GCBlue migrated Thompson Health Care’s existing file servers to SharePoint and ran training sessions for users so that the transition was easy and did not disrupt critical day to day care duties of the staff.

We tailor our training for each specific function and audience and use the existing environment we’ve deployed to demonstrate the training lessons we deliver.
GCBlue also delivers user security training to educate users on how to stay secure in the modern workplace.

Our augmented support packages are designed to be great value and very flexible, and extend your current team, no matter how big or small, with our extensive skills and experience. We offer packages that allow unused hours to roll over and our packages can be used towards any project, support requirement or technology service we offer.

Security as a Culture
Every project or requirement we take on or offer advice on includes our most important principle: Security as a Culture.
