Cloud-compute platforms are more commonly used today for many reasons, but primarily because they use resources more efficiently than local servers, allowing for increased accessibility when storing and sharing files. An application-focused cloud system removes obstacles and minimizes the distance data needs to travel to the end-user.
Is the Cloud Right for You?
The cloud is for everyone, but not for everything. There are multiple cloud options that may be right for you. Through scalability, cloud solutions provide the flexibility required to enhance your workloads via public, private, and hybrid options. We will determine which cloud is right for your business during our cloud readiness assessment.
In a public cloud, the most common type of cloud computing deployment, you share the same hardware, storage, and network devices with other organizations. Cloud resources are owned and operated by a third-party cloud service provider and delivered over the internet. With a public cloud, all hardware, software, and other supporting infrastructure are owned and managed by the cloud provider. Public cloud deployments are frequently used to provide web-based email, online office applications, storage, and testing and development environments.
Private cloud is built for organizations that want the flexibility of the cloud while maintaining control, access, and security of your dedicated resources. The private cloud offers a singular environment with dedicated servers for maximum protection and performance. This environment allows you to customize based on your exact needs.
For greater flexibility and scale, combine public cloud and private cloud into a hybrid cloud solution. With hybrid cloud, you can connect dedicated environments to the private and public clouds of your choice.
