Private Hybrid Cloud
Heard of the Cloud? We have. And we know how to leverage our knowledge of cloud computing to benefit our clients. Small and medium sized business are quickly shifting away from acquiring large, expensive hardware for their IT department and have embraced the cloud as a flexible, low-cost option. Our relationship with area data centers and vendors has allowed us to give our clients access to servers, storage and databases while provisioning only what they need.
One of the many services Astute Technology Management offers is the ability to create a Private Hybrid Cloud for your organization. What is a Private Hybrid Cloud? Good question. A Private Hybrid Cloud delivers the best of both on-premises services and private cloud services. With the rapid fire increase in ransomware attacks on SMB’s year over year, the level of security offered by our private cloud services has become a necessity.
Why Move To The Cloud?
Moving to the cloud isn’t a decision to make on the fly. Thorough review of applications, network usage, current infrastructure and devices is required. Things to consider:
- Mobility. With today’s workforce becoming increasingly mobile the ability to hop on a network from anywhere via any device can be very attractive and necessary. Being hand cuffed to a desktop or physical network is simply not an option.
- Security. Cloud computing may seem less secure – at first. But this is far from true. When data is stored on a cloud it is being housed in a secure data center. Think 24/7 physical security and the finances to ensure 24/7 IT staff are working to keep everything up to date. A more robust IT data center infrastructure ensures multiple tiers of expertise and support which increases security.
- Built in disaster recovery. When data is being stored in the cloud, businesses don’t have the burden of investing in back up. And recovering data can be easier when it’s all backed up and still there to recover.
- No server to maintain. We are well aware of the “IT Closet”. The too hot, supposed to be air conditioned, wire filled, blinking light wall of tech that nobody wants to touch IT Closet. With cloud computing the server goes away! While we can’t promise the IT Closet will completely become a thing of the past (yet), the source of all that heat just floats up into the sky.
