Cloud Solutions

What is the Cloud?

The "cloud" consists of servers, storage, hosted applications, systems and infrastructure providing computing resources as a service (usually via the internet) to end users who interact using a number of different software programs and devices. There are three main cloud areas:

 

  • Public – Third party providers offering resources & services over the internet. This would include DropBox or Microsoft Office 365.
  • Private – Generally used by larger companies, the private or internal cloud uses hardware on private networks to provide services for users within an organisation.
  • Hybrid – This option combines local hardware and third party services. For example a local server could store business critical files accessed daily whilst email could be provided by a third party e.g. Microsoft Office 365.

 

What are the benefits?

 

  • Reduce set up costs - Subscription services reduce the initial setup cost for systems.
  • Use (and pay for) only what you need – Manage services and costs as new users come on board rather than buying a 50 user system before you have any staff.
  • Mobile working – Cloud services can be accessed wherever there is an internet connection, it’s easy to setup access to systems wherever you or your staff are working.
  • Reliability –Unlike some solutions we don’t use outdated hardware to provide these services, we partner with industry leading providers (Microsoft, Mozy, DropBox, Box).
