Cloud Service Providers London
Cloud services refer to a myriad of on-demand IT resources that can be accessed via the internet from a cloud computing provider’s servers.These IT resources include; servers, databases, storage, networking,software, analytics and many more.
What cloud services do you offer?
There are three basic types of cloud services: Infrastructure, Platform, and Software.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
This is the most basic category of cloud computing services. It includes services like unlimited storage, backup, and security. With IaaS, businesses rent IT infrastructure from a provider and they can scale up their storage space depending on need.
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
PaaS refers to delivery of hosting development tools without any downloads. This model allows users to create and deploy applications without the need to maintain hard drives and servers. PaaS enables users to access various tools via internet using web portals, APIs or gateway software.
Software as a Service (SaaS)
This distribution model entails hosting of software applications by a cloud service provider and making them available to customers via internet. SaaS allows customers to access a particular software from any location using a PC or mobile device without worrying about storage issues.
What are the advantages of cloud services?
Registered cloud users can readily access stored files from anywhere provided they have an internet connection. Moreover, many cloud services providers maintain 99.99% uptime.
Cloud infrastructure can be scaled up when computing needs grow and shut down when they are not needed. This ensures businesses do not waste resources on local infrastructure which may or may not be active.
Offer several storage options
Cloud computing services can be private, public, or hybrid. Therefore users can choose their preferred storage options depending on security needs and other factors.
Cloud service providers avail self-service options. This eliminates the need for businesses to hire traditional IT administrators to manage computing resources. Moreover, cloud storage services have desktop folders for Mac’s and PC’s hence users can simply drag and drop files to their local storage.
Quick deployment of projects
Cloud computing allows users to provision huge amount of computing resources in a matter of minutes. Cloud computing technology allows users to access data and files from wherever they are in the world using mobile devices. Modern cloud computing has enhanced security features such as encryption, virtual private cloud , and API ensure stored data is secure.
What are the disadvantages of cloud services?
Information stored in the cloud is vulnerable to external hack attacks and other security threats. Cloud computing systems can at times experience serious dysfunction. This technology is vulnerable to outages and other technical issues. Another drawback of cloud computing is that one cannot access any data or applications if they don’t have an internet connection.
Will cloud Services help my business?
With cloud services, businesses can operate without having to worry about IT. These services eliminate the need for monitoring IT infrastructure round-the-clock hence saving on time and costs. Cloud service providers monitor infrastructure, keep data safe, and provide creative and practical solutions to business needs. Other advantages of cloud services include:
Cloud services enable a business to access compute resources faster, at a lower cost hence giving them a competitive edge against business rivals.
Cloud computing allows dispersed groups of people to meet virtually and share information via shared storage. This capability definitely improves the performance of a business.
Reduction of expenses
Unlike in traditional computing where a business could spend a lot of money before getting any value from investing in a data center, cloud computing drastically reduces such expenses while offering more productivity. Cloud technology eliminates costs associated with purchase of hardware and software, setting up, and running on-site data centres.
Cloud storage allows for storage of important files at a remote location hence serves as an emergency backup plan by providing a second copy of important files.
What are my cloud Services options?
The cloud services options include:
Public cloud services
This is the most common option available. Public cloud services are owned and operated by a third party cloud service provider, which delivers computing resources to multiple customers through the internet.
Private cloud services
Private cloud services are delivered from an organization’s own infrastructure and are dedicated to internal users as opposed to multiple external customers.
Hybrid cloud services
This cloud infrastructure combines public cloud services and private cloud services. The two options are bound together by standardized technology that enables data and application portability. With hybrid cloud services, businesses can create a unified, automated, and scalable operating environment.
