Cloud computing enables companies to consume computer resources as a utility -- just like electricity -- rather than having to build and maintain computing infrastructures in-house. By adopting Cloud strategies, we’ve seen several attractive benefits for businesses and end users. Three of the main benefits of adapting to the Cloud include:
Self-service provisioning: End users can spin up computing resources for almost any type of workload on-demand.
Elasticity: Companies can scale up as computing needs increase and then scale down again as demands decrease.
Pay per use: Computing resources are measured at a granular level, allowing users to pay only for the resources and workloads they use.
Cloud strategies can be built for private, public or hybrid use.
Private cloud services are delivered from a business' data center to internal users. This model offers versatility and convenience, while preserving management, control and security. Internal customers may or may not be billed for services through IT chargeback.
In the public cloud model, a third-party provider delivers the cloud service over the Internet. Public cloud services are sold on-demand, typically by the minute or the hour. Customers only pay for the CPU cycles, storage or bandwidth they consume. Leading public cloud providers include Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, IBM/SoftLayer and Google Compute Engine.
Serverless Development: By leveraging AWS Lambda we can enable our customers to deploy code without worrying about sizing for scale or performance, at a fraction of the cost of hosted infrastructure.
DevOps Process Integration: We provide best practices and technical expertise to bring a DevOps approach to your application development in the cloud.
Storage Migration: We address more than just moving your storage needs to cloud drives including: security, content lifecycle, records management, distribution, and analytics.
Application Migration and Hosting: We can assist with new applications built in cloud, and have experience moving existing applications to cloud infrastructure. We address application servers, databases in the cloud, load balancers, network security, and secure content storage.
HA / DR Planning & Implementation: AWS regions and availability zones provide a strong foundation for architecting for high availability and disaster recovery scenarios.
WordPress Customization: We bring unique expertise to extend and integrate WordPress to push its capabilities beyond what can be achieved with templates and plugins.
Our cloud solutions leverages cloud computing and a service oriented architecture (SOA) to improve the overall system security, reliability, performance, and usability.
