What is cloud computing?
Cloud computing is replacing select on-premise computer hardware and software solutions you're using, such as a shared file server, application(s) server, showroom server, and backup server solutions to integrated services provided by a fully managed service facility accessed through the Internet. Today, an on-premise computing infrastructure has become a “thing of the past”. Cloud computing has matured and evolved over the past decade whereby companies are expected to have a cloud-first or cloud-only policies.
What can you expect in a provider of cloud services?
Here’s a sampling of key benefits you can expect to achieve when adopting cloud computing:
- Improved mobility: Applications availability and data accessibility available to workers anywhere an Internet connection is available. Workers can leverage smart phones, tablets, laptops, and traditional desktops to gain access to private and shared company data.
- Easily scalable: Flexibility to add system resources dynamically and quickly eliminating the need to replace or maintain aging systems.
- Improved collaboration: Allows dispersed teams to meet virtually and easily share information in real time and via shared storage. This capability can reduce time-to-market, advance sales, and improve customer service.
- Safeguarding IT systems and company data: Sensitive data is securely stored and managed. Users can securely access, high availability cloud services only using credentials provided.
