What is Cloud Computing?

“Cloud computing” (also called simply, “the cloud”) describes the act of storing, managing and processing data online — as opposed to on your own physical computer or network.

Public Cloud

Let us help you modernize your IT and drive innovation by harnessing all the benefits of the public cloud. Our certified cloud experts work closely with you to understand your unique requirements and challenges, delivering the tools, management and expertise you need when migrating to the cloud.

The public cloud is the ideal cloud platform for non-sensitive, public-facing operations, with unpredictable traffic.

Private Cloud

Get the agility, scalability and efficiency of the public cloud, with the greater levels of control and security of a single-tenant, dedicated environment. It can be hosted on-site at your own data centre or at a service provider’s data centre.

  • Deliver features faster by providing your users with on-demand, self-service access to infrastructure.
  • Get the enhanced security of dedicated, physically isolated network, compute and storage layers.
  • Customise the dedicated compute, storage and networking components to best suit your needs.
  • Gain performance advantages over public cloud, with dedicated resources for your business.

Hybrid Cloud

The way public and private clouds work as part of a hybrid cloud is no different than how standalone public or private clouds work: Something (virtualization, containers, or software-defined storage) abstracts resources and pools them into clouds; automation software allocates these resources; and management tools provision new environments.

Private and public clouds become hybrid clouds when application programming interfaces (APIs), virtual private networks (VPNs), or wide area networks (WANs) connect the 2 environments as seamlessly as possible.

Benefits of using cloud-based technologies

There are so many benefits to implementing cloud solutions and infrastructure, including:

  • Greater degree of flexibility
  • Lower costs
  • Scalability (up and down)
  • Better efficiencies
  • Enhanced mobilities
  • We will work hard to offer you the best solution for your business

At busy times, the last thing a business needs is for technology to fail them. Downtime can lead to all kinds of problems, including reduced productivity, lost revenue and reputational issues. A reputable cloud provider will maintain reliable, secure services, giving you peace of mind that all data is secure, safe and recoverable, no matter what happens. It’s easily accessible from anywhere and any device. And if something does go wrong, a cloud host should resolve issues quickly, getting you back up and running in no time.
