You have a number of options for how, and where, to implement cloud computing.
We specialize in helping you choose the best cloud implementation for your needs and identifying the use cases that will deliver the highest return on your investment.
Public Cloud Computing
Public clouds offer a service model for addressing IT resource needs.
Public cloud computing providers have already combined IT infrastructure components for you and made them ready for provisioning to your workloads. They maintain the hardware while providing you with redundant and reliable infrastructure services.
If you prefer not to maintain your own IT infrastructure or if you need to scale workloads beyond your existing data center, public cloud computing could be an ideal solution.
Public clouds also provide a pay-as-you-go system for things like email, storage, even applications.
Private Cloud Computing
Private cloud computing offers many of the benefits of the public cloud, but it’s dedicated to your organization. You can design and implement your storage, compute, and network with the highest levels of security—integrating legacy technology and customized infrastructure as needed.
Private cloud implementations can be cost effective when you have very efficient operations and nominal change rates. This model is most successful in a completely virtualized infrastructure.
Private cloud computing is often more appropriate for sensitive data, business-critical operations, and any information regulated by governmental compliance.
Hybrid Cloud Computing
If you’re transitioning to the cloud from a classic IT paradigm, your best option might be a blend of the two approaches—a hybrid of public and private cloud services. You can maintain your legacy systems in their current implementation while taking advantage of new cloud-based technologies.
With hybrid cloud computing, you still own and maintain your hardware and data center facilities. You use public cloud resources for specific purposes or to provide functionality that you don’t have available locally.
For example, public clouds offer cost-effective disaster recovery solutions. You can relocate on-premise services to public cloud infrastructure, freeing your IT staff from the responsibility of maintaining a separate data center facility for limited events.
