Cloud computing, often referred to as simply “the cloud,” is the delivery of on-demand computing resources—everything from applications to data centers—over the Internet on a pay-for-use basis. In general cloud computing services provide:
There are three different models of pay-per-use services that any organization interested in Cloud Computing should understand:
Infrastructure as a service provides companies with computing resources including servers, networking, storage and data center space on a pay-per-use basis.
Platform as a service provides a cloud-based environment with everything required to support the complete lifecycle of building and delivering web-based (cloud) applications but without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware, software, provisioning and hosting.
Cloud-based applications—or software as a service—run on distant computers “in the cloud” that are owned and operated by others and that connect to users’ computers via the Internet and, usually, a web browser.
Based on each type of cloud solution the main benefits are:
According to each type of implementation companies need to be on the look-out for:
Our experience will be very valuable in various aspects of an organization’s cloud implementation journey
Among other tools and technologies our team uses the following toolset for each Cloud implementation type:
Not at all. Small and mid-size business would benefit greatly from the implementation of a hybrid cloud strategy with their workloads running on an solid IaaS platform. Match the hybrid cloud with a powerful MSP offering and the companies have unprecedented flexibility and ability to deliver and innovate.
No. We might start a hybrid cloud implementation with only a couple of hypervisors and a single node networking appliance to offer firewall and routing capabilities.
The solutions can vary in size and specifications in accordance with the customer objectives.
No, with laser focus detail we can help enterprises locate the right mix of solutions to meet their desired objectives, time-frame and budget.
