CLOUD COMPUTING

It’s arrived and everyone is talking about it, but how can something hosted in the ether out there somewhere be a safe and secure solution for managing and supporting your information technology?

What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing means that you access, store and process your data and applications using a network of remote computers (basically accessed over the internet) instead of a local server or your computer’s hard drive. The word ‘cloud’ is simply a metaphor for internet.< /p>

Well, that can’t be very safe or secure can it? Well, yes it can. In actual fact you most likely already practice a lot of cloud based activity without even thinking about it every day through your mobile banking app or your Gmail email account.

Microsolve offers a range of cloud-based solutions designed around your business needs. Contact us today to discuss how cloud computing can benefit your business.

Cloud computing is revolutionising information technology by helping to bring down overall IT costs. In a nutshell, cloud allows us to consume IT like a utility such as water or electricity based on usage rather than having to build the required IT Infrastructure in-house. Using a cloud-based solution also means your company can scale up and down as the demand for IT resources change. If you are running your business, service or practice from multiple locations cloud-based solutions can also ensure your data is centralised at a lower cost whilst simplifying compliance and reporting and ensuring seamless access to centralised systems from multiple physical locations.

Reduce your IT costs in the long term and give your business a cutting edge advantage by utilising the modern technology today. Microsolve has the experience, training and technology available to help you build the right cloud-based solution for your business.

THE ADVANTAGES OF CLOUD

Modern technology such as cloud computing comes with a range of benefits for your business. Cloud-based IT solutions can help you:

  • Reduce the costs of managing your own It infrastructure;
  • Gain the flexibility to scale resources up or down as required, on-demand;
  • Manage your IT costs easily with a fixed monthly price;
  • Manage your IT services to agreed service levels (SLAs);
  • Focus on building your business rather than managing complex IT systems and infrastructure;
  • Meet the demands of an increasingly mobile workforce; and
  • Get the most out of your IT without needing a heavy investment in labour, training or infrastructure.

THE THREE CLOUD MODELS

Cloud computing services are available in three models i.e. private cloud, public cloud and hybrid cloud models.

Private Cloud

When your organisation uses a secure private cloud set-up it means your infrastructure and cloud set-up is created solely for your business. By using a private cloud solution, you can access the versatilities and efficiencies of the cloud whilst providing more control and management over your system. This allows you to ensure that the security and governance of your cloud solution is designed for your specific requirements. You can have your secure private cloud managed and hosted either internally or through a third party service. Microsolve offers private cloud planning, set-up, hosting and support services designed to meet your business' individual needs.

Public Cloud

Public cloud services are delivered over the internet using public bandwidth and resources. Public cloud services are typically sold on-demand and customers only pay for the storage, bandwidth or CPU cycles they use. Examples of public cloud services are:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS);
  • Microsoft Azure;
  • Google Compute Engine; and
  • IBM/SoftLayer.

Hybrid Cloud

As the name indicates, hybrid cloud uses a mixture of private cloud and public cloud services with the two services neatly connected to deliver a seamless experience to the user. Typically, hybrid cloud would use a private cloud as a foundation and combine this with integration of a mixture of public cloud services such as SaaS (Software as a Service) enabling you to use the latest applications and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) to allow elastic virtual resources that can scale based on usage requirements without the investment required to host these servers yourself. Using a hybrid cloud set-up enables you to run mission-critical or sensitive workloads and applications in your private cloud while using the public cloud to support the scalable, flexible and cost effective infrastructure offered by public cloud solutions. Depending on your business needs, a Hybrid Cloud Model may seamlessly integrate the public and private cloud elements to offer you maximum efficiency.

CLOUD SERVICE CATEGORIES

Cloud computing can generally be divided into three broad service categories:

  • Software as a Service (SaaS)
    This is a software licensing and distribution model in which you subscribe to use software applications that are centrally hosted by a service provider or vendor. This is also called "on-demand software". Instead of installing and maintaining the software, you simply access it via the internet thereby freeing up your IT team from complex software and hardware management.
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
    Platform as a service is a cloud-based platform environment in which you use a web-based platform on which to support the complete lifecycle of building and developing your cloud-based applications, in other words middleware as a service for cloud-based solution development. PaaS enables you to develop, deploy, run and manage web applications faster without the complexity of managing the underlying infrastructure.
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
    Infrastructure as a Service is a cloud infrastructure solution which provides you with computing resources such as servers, networking, storage, and data centre space on a demand basis. This reduces the need for you to invest in your own hardware and allows you to support the dynamic and ever changing workloads of modern business.
