Imagine that your best salesperson is in another city, waiting to come home. An ash cloud means that the prospect of getting home anytime soon is shaky. He’s bored, sitting in a hotel room, and you’re quietly worrying about the cost and loss of productivity. This is where cloud computing can help – because your employee can access your data and files in the cloud, he can get on with work no matter where he is.
What is cloud computing services?
Cloud computing services, often referred to as simply “the cloud,” is the delivery of on-demand computing resources—everything from applications to data centres—over the Internet on a pay-for-use basis. Computit can assist you with defining a cloud computing strategy that will work best for your organization.
Computit can help you with:
Software as a Service (SaaS)
Cloud-based applications—or software as a service (SaaS)—run on distant computers “in the cloud” that are owned and operated by others and that connect to users’ computers via the Internet and, usually, a web browser.
- Office 365
- Cloud Anti-Virus/Anti-Spam
- Cloud Marketing Software
- Google Apps
Platform as a service (PaaS)
Platform as a service provides a cloud-based environment with everything required to support the complete lifecycle of building and delivering web-based (cloud) applications—without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware, software, provisioning and hosting.
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a service provides companies with computing resources including servers, networking, storage, and data centre space on a pay-per-use basis.
- Remote Desktop
- Cloud Storage
- Web Server Hosting
Why Use Cloud Computing Services?
Data is key and possibly the most important asset for organizations - a single breach or leak of sensitive data can cripple the entire business, so a data protection strategy must protect the data itself. The trick is to protect data at the moment of creation, before it moves out of the enterprise or even enters the cloud. Only by doing that can you ensure that any data source is comprehensively protected, and the risk to potential exposure is minimized.
Scalability and flexibility
The cloud has opened previously unseen opportunities for organizations to grow and expand quickly, smoothly and with ease. With information immediately available wherever you are, the cloud offers the flexibility and scalability that in the past was an insurmountable obstacle for businesses restricted by their on-site resources.
Cloud computing allows you to reap the powerful cost savings by only paying for what you use. There is no need to invest in high-cost infrastructure that you don’t yet need – you can add that as you require it in the future.
Access to data anytime, anywhere
Enhancing the opportunity to drive business innovation, the cloud provides remote access to your infrastructure 24/7 for your workforce. You can access files and data wherever you happen to be. Sales teams can check stock levels in real time. An employee stuck at home waiting for a delivery, or in an airport waiting for an ash cloud to disperse, can still work as effectively as in the office. Productivity improves as a result.
Computit can help you establish and maintain your cloud computing service.
