Cloud Services

Your business in the cloud.

What is Cloud Computing? “.. a broad array of web-based services aimed at allowing users to obtain a wide range of functional capabilities on a “pay-as-you-go‟ basis that previously required substantial hardware/software investments and professional skills to acquire.”

Benefits of Using Cloud Services

  • Scalability/Flexibility — Cloud computing enables you to scale up and down your IT requirements much more easily without long time and cash consuming projects. The leg work is done in the data centre by the service provider. This makes deployment much quicker. There is the possibility to start with a small deployment and grow to a large deployment fairly rapidly.
  • Reliability — all-time business continuity and fast disaster recovery. 
  • No in-house maintenance — сloud service provider does the system maintenance, and access is through the Internet that does not require application installations in PCs.
  • Mobile Accessible - Mobile workers have increased productivity due to systems being accessible in an infrastructure available from anywhere.
  • More Predictable IT Budget - Most cloud services are procured on a fixed monthly or annual basis. These services are delivered regardless of what happens to your on premise servers (If you have any). This makes forecasting and planning more accurate and eliminates some of the guesswork.  Organisations often find they get more for less on cloud platforms.
  • Lower Utility and Maintenance Costs - You don’t need as large an IT Team to maintain various highly specialised on premise server applications and equipment. Most maintenance is carried out by the service provider. Less physical equipment means lower electricity bills and less space is required for your comms equipment.

Cloud Computing - Deployment Models

Private Cloud — The cloud managed by a specific organization. 

Public Cloud — The cloud infrastructure is available to the public on a commercial basis by a cloud service provider.

Hybrid Cloud — The cloud infrastructure consists of a number of clouds of any type, but the clouds have the ability through their interfaces to allow data and/or applications to be moved from one cloud to another.
