Cloud computing can benefit businesses of all sizes allowing you to set up what is essentially a virtual office to give you the flexibility of connecting to your business anywhere, any time. However, with so many options available, it can be hard to know what’s best for your business. Our knowledgeable team will guide you through your options, recommend the right cloud solution and manage a smooth migration to the cloud helping your business to maximise its potential and efficiency.
Moving to cloud computing may reduce the cost of managing and maintaining your IT systems. Rather than purchasing expensive systems and equipment for your business, you can reduce your costs by using the resources of your cloud computing service provider.
Your system will regularly be updated with the latest technology. This could include up-to-date versions of software, as well as upgrades to servers and computer processing power.
Your business can scale up or scale down its operations and storage needs quickly, allowing flexibility as needs change. Rather than purchasing and installing expensive upgrades yourself, your cloud provider will handle this for you. Using the cloud frees up your time so you can get on with running your business.
Protecting your data and systems is an important part of business continuity planning. Whether you experience a natural disaster, power failure or other crisis, having your data stored in the cloud ensures it is backed up and protected in a secure and safe location. Being able to access your data again quickly allows you to conduct business as usual, minimising any downtime and loss of productivity.
Cloud computing allows employees to be more flexible in their work practices. For example, you have the ability to access data from home, on holiday, or via the commute to and from work (providing you have an internet connection). If you need access to your data while you are off-site, you can connect to your virtual office, quickly and easily.
Collaboration in a cloud environment gives your business the ability to communicate and share more easily outside of the traditional methods. If you are working on a project across different locations, you could use cloud computing to give employees, contractors and third parties access to the same files. You could also choose a cloud computing model that makes it easy for you to share your records with your advisors.
A third-party provider makes resources such as virtual machines, applications and storage available to the you over the internet. This means you won’t need to set-up your own physical servers in-house saving on hardware and maintenance costs. Public cloud means you share computing resources with other users but your data remains separate.
We utilise main public cloud providers assisting you with the full implementation and migration of your services and infrastructure with ongoing monitoring, management and support.
You have complete control of your environment which is dedicated to your own use and not shared. Infrastructure is hosted on-site or in a service provider’s data centre, allowing greater levels of control and security, with computing, storage and networking fully customisable to your business’ needs.
Private cloud is most suitable for businesses with changing computing needs that require complete control, typically to meet regulatory compliance, security and governance needs.
We’ll design and build a bespoke cloud environment using a combination of technologies that’s right for your business. We can manage the whole process from design, delivery to ongoing monitoring and management of your environment, so you don’t have to worry about it.
Hybrid cloud brings together a mixture of environments depending on the needs of your business and performance optimisation. The Hybrid model uses a combination of public and private cloud and on-premise hardware as not all workloads are suitable for the cloud.
Hybrid cloud provides greater flexibility, cost savings and more options for your IT environment whilst still maintaining control over your critical data.
We’ll create a tailored Hybrid environment that meets your business’ specific needs providing a flexible and scalable solution. Efficiency will be improved by using the Public cloud to handle spikes in demand and the Private cloud for business-critical workloads.
