Cloud & Hybrid Solutions
Why Cloud Services?
What is it?
Simply, cloud services are a complete Enterprise grade infrastructure components or solutions consisting of applications, servers, storage, networking, security and accessibility. This is normally utilising the latest stable hardware, technologies and components.
Infrastructure resources at this level are normally seen in multi-national IT based businesses or government organisations, as the costs of commissioning and maintaining an infrastructure of this type are beyond the reach of most businesses.
However, the evolution of cloud services allow you to cherry pick the resource and infrastructure you need, often on a monthly per user or usage volume scale. This keeps control of costs, while allowing your business to expand or indeed shrink your requirements as and when you need.
In addition to Cloud Services you can also invest in a Hybrid Infrastructure.
Hybrid Infrastructure is a combination of cloud based services and internal systems, this can be offered as a private or public cloud solution.
- Your own staff require access to internal systems via the internet. The private cloud will allow them to connect securely to your infrastructure without exposing any of your systems to users not permitted to access them
- You require the public or external businesses to access your internal systems via a public cloud solution. Allowing authentication or apps to access the public side, which in turn obtains data from your internal systems securely without exposing the internal systems to the internet.

Why do we need it?
These services could potentially provide your business with the best of both, allowing your business infrastructure to respond to demands without having to purchase additional internal infrastructure solutions, thus providing excellent cost management.
Both Cloud Services and Hybrid Infrastructure are offered as Saas (Software as a Service) or IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and often on a subscription basis so you only ever pay for what is needed or consumed.
