Cloud Solutions To Move Your Business Forward
WE CAN HELP YOU GET THERE WITH A SOLUTION THAT FITS YOUR ORGANIZATION – NO MATTER HOW LARGE OR SMALL
Modern businesses require flexibility that IT organizations want to provide, but limited time and budgets make it a difficult proposition. Most environments are built on virtualized server platforms and expensive storage systems that provide a small degree of high-availability when implemented according to best practices. Often times, IT staff does not have the time or expertise to run these systems effectively. Business end users are increasingly more tech savvy and expect the applications they use to mimic consumer cloud applications in their ease of use and availability. Moving to a hybrid cloud infrastructure can help level the playing field, allowing organizations to architect their applications without worrying about underlying infrastructure. Global availability with local presence, cost control, and speed of deployment are some of the many benefits of moving to the cloud.
See below for more information on cloud services, deployment types, and benefits.
IaaS - Infrastructure As A Service
IaaS helps you avoid the expense and complexity of buying and managing your own physical servers and other datacenter infrastructure. Each resource is offered as a separate service component, and you only need to rent a particular one for as long as you need it. The cloud computing service provider manages the infrastructure, while you purchase, install, configure, and manage your own software—operating systems, middleware, and applications.
PaaS - Platform As A Service
Like IaaS, PaaS includes infrastructure—servers, storage, and networking—but also middleware, development tools, business intelligence (BI) services, database management systems, and more. PaaS is designed to support the complete web application lifecycle: building, testing, deploying, managing, and updating.
PaaS allows you to avoid the expense and complexity of buying and managing software licenses, the underlying application infrastructure and middleware or the development tools and other resources. You manage the applications and services you develop, and the cloud service provider typically manages everything else.
SaaS - Software As A Service
SaaS provides a complete software solution that you purchase on a pay-as-you-go basis from a cloud service provider. You rent the use of an app for your organization, and your users connect to it over the Internet, usually with a web browser. All of the underlying infrastructure, middleware, app software, and app data are located in the service provider’s data center. The service provider manages the hardware and software, and with the appropriate service agreement, will ensure the availability and the security of the app and your data as well. SaaS allows your organization to get quickly up and running with an app at minimal upfront cost.
