Is the Cloud right for my business? How can my business benefit from utilizing cloud services? What is the financial and operational impact of moving some or all of my IT functions to the Cloud? Most business owners are wisely asking these or similar questions about IT cloud services and that’s why we’ve written this Cloud Services Overview.
Connecting Point has been utilizing and implementing cloud managed service for years. Our team of professionals will help our clients assess the benefits of cloud computing for their particular business environment. Our process is to analyze client business applications, client business processes, look at bandwidth capacity and help to educate clients on the new style of IT that the Cloud offers.
By moving some or all of your IT operations and infrastructure to cloud managed services, your company can benefit from a much more operational expense model (as opposed to a capital expense model). Additionally, you can get out of the continual refresh and upgrade cycle that has been difficult for many businesses to plan for and implement.
Let our professionals consult and recommend options tailored to your business from our full suite of IT cloud services.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS):
For decades most businesses relied on an in-house server, or group of servers, serving as the central processing power of the company local or wide area network. While these networks worked well, they required continual support as well as continual care and feeding from a refresh and upgrade standpoint. Today, Connecting Point’s Professional Services Team will consult with you to design infrastructure in the cloud that will operate seamlessly and provide you better resiliency and redundancy. Additionally, clients can easily add or reduce processing power, data storage, memory and bandwidth. Infrastructure as a Service simply means having the flexibility and agility to harness data center infrastructure and use utilize it as your own. Free yourself from the cycle of designing and refreshing premise based infrastructure. Let us design a powerful and flexible Cloud based infrastructure for your business.
