Cloud Solutions

What was once merely a term for storage has expanded to cover various aspects of business, including desktop-as-a-service (DaaS), Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), applications, servers, email, and beyond. The cloud provides solutions that not only simplify operations but also enhance productivity.

Why Move to the Cloud?

Software and Hardware Refresh Savings

The cloud enables companies to shift towards an operational expense (OpEx) model, eliminating the need for substantial initial outlays on hardware and software updates. Typically, businesses undertake these refreshes every three years, although some manage on a five-year cycle.

Regardless of your organization’s refresh cycle, transitioning to the cloud often costs about the same as traditional systems, and in some cases, opting for a cloud solution can even result in savings compared to on-premises setups. Reach out to us for a quote today to compare how your existing system stacks up against cloud options.

Flexible Capacity

Companies are continuously changing – adding new staff, launching new branches, and adapting to fresh IT demands. Is your datacenter capable of keeping pace?

The cloud is designed to do just that—offering an adaptable infrastructure that aligns with the changing needs of your business. It features a pay-as-you-go model, ensuring you only cover the costs for resources you actually use. This stands in contrast to conventional datacenters, where there’s a need to invest in peak capacity infrastructure and make further investments to accommodate future needs.

Security Threats

Gain visibility and control with built-in management and security solutions across your cloud and on-premises environment.

Detect and respond to threats faster with products like Azure Security Center. Enable Azure Backup and Azure Site Recovery to help protect against any cloud or on-premise data loss.

Software End of Support

End of support can spell disaster for a business as the lack of security patches increases exposure and an inability to remain compliant with security audits.

Cloud providers, such as Microsoft Azure, often provide extended support for Windows 7, Server 2008 R2, and SQL 2008 R2 – beyond January 14th 2020. This can provide the necessary time businesses require to migrate to new platforms and line-of-business software, while remaining secure and compliant.

Types of Cloud Solutions

Public

Public cloud involves the use of virtualized resources that are shared publicly. An example of a public cloud service offered by Adminjas is Microsoft Azure.

This model supplies your organization with infrastructure and security while being accessed concurrently by various users worldwide. Despite the term ‘public,’ the data and information of your organization remain private and are not available to any external party.

Private

Private cloud involves the use of virtualized resources shared within a private network.

This approach provides managed services that comply with numerous federal and state regulations, making it suitable for entities such as medical practices, financial institutions, and others.

It grants organizations, like those mentioned, the ability to maintain control over their highly sensitive data.

Such a solution employs infrastructure that is either owned and operated by the organization itself or outsourced to a third party capable of meeting the precise requirements needed.

Hybrid

Hybrid cloud combines the features of both public and private cloud settings.

It serves as an ideal option for organizations that need to handle various platforms and decide on the optimal location for data storage. For instance, it’s useful when highly sensitive data requires secure storage on a private cloud, while documents intended for customer interaction can be kept on a more accessible public cloud.

IaaS

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides an immediate computing infrastructure, which is provisioned and managed online.

IaaS offers scalable solutions tailored to your requirements, making it an excellent option for sectors with variable demand, such as retail and education. The pay-as-you-go model ensures you only spend on what you need, allowing for cost reductions when demand decreases.

Organizations benefit from IaaS through:

  • Avoiding upfront capital expenditures and minimizing continuous expenses
  • Enhancing business continuity and disaster recovery strategies
  • Accelerating adjustments and innovations
  • Strengthening security measures
  • Achieving faster responsiveness to changes
PaaS

Platform as a Service (PaaS) represents an advancement beyond Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). It provides a comprehensive development and deployment environment in the cloud, equipped with resources that facilitate the creation of everything from basic cloud-based applications to complex, cloud-integrated enterprise solutions. In addition to the infrastructure, PaaS encompasses middleware, development tools, business intelligence services, database management systems, and more, offering a more extensive set of capabilities.

With PaaS, organizations can benefit in several ways:

  • Reduce the amount of time spent on coding
  • Enhance development capabilities without the need to increase staff
  • Create applications for various platforms
  • Access advanced tools at a cost-effective rate
  • Streamline the management of the application lifecycle
