Cloud Computing

Everyone is talking about cloud computing but very few outside of the IT industry actually know what the cloud is or how it can help their business. Basically, Cloud Computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer. The advantages can be the cost or the speed of deployment and services delivered by specialists.

Cloud computing while having many advantages it does not suit everyone’s needs. Today there is a lot of hype around cloud offerings and it is best to talk to the experts before making the jump. Learn what your best options are and how you can take advantage of this technology.

Cloud offerings come in different flavours with the standard two being Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). With SaaS, the cloud service provider hosts your enterprise applications and associated data on its servers and storage systems. SaaS can also be where a vendor supplies a specialist application to you over the Internet. With IaaS, the cloud provider offers virtual machines, physical servers, storage, switching, and connectivity resources to run your enterprise applications on a pay-as-you-go basis.
