IT Cloud Services

“The Cloud.” Everyone is talking about it. But what is it, and why is it any different from traditional hosted services? Most people are accustomed to having their email service provided by an another company. The concept of the Cloud is similar to this, but with many added benefits. Cloud-based technology allows services to be spread across a multitude of technical infrastructure. This provides a fast, affordable, and reliable environment for delivering services. For example, a company like Microsoft can pool hundreds (sometimes thousands) of servers into a single platform, hosting your email, online storage, and other applications. The customer reaps the benefits of the combined performance of the Cloud, instant scalability, and a service that will almost never go down. And since the infrastructure of the cloud can be shared across tens of thousands of organizations, the customer only has to pay for what resources they are using. This results in IT infrastructure costs that are as much 1/10th of the cost of hosting your own services internally.

Here are some of the great benefits of moving to the Cloud:

  • Endless Applications. Email, offsite backup, storage, antivirus, and website hosting are just a few examples of what you can do with the cloud.
  • Secure. Imagine having an IT Security Team of over a thousand specialists keeping safe watch of your infrastructure 24×7. This is another added benefit of Cloud-based technology. You can instantly capture the benefit of world-class IT security.
  • Affordable. Since the power of the cloud is shared across thousands of customers, you only have to pay for the resources that you use.
  • Instantly Scalable. With no limits on the power available, increasing your IT resources is as easy as the click of a button. No waiting, no big expansion projects. Simply click, and the resources you need are now available.
