What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is a leading strategic technology trend for 2017, right behind virtualization. Analysts say the economics of cloud for customers are truly compelling, with expected savings for business applications of 3-5x. That’s not pennies change – particularly in today’s economy.
Cloud computing is essentially the ability to acquire or deliver a resource on demand, configured however the users chooses, and paid for according to consumption.
But the most compelling benefits of the cloud aren’t just cost-savings. They’re the increased flexibility, elasticity and scalability available to optimize efficiency and best serve the needs of the business.
It means being able to deliver and manage resources and applications in a multi-business or user environment, to deliver the user an on-demand, pay-per-use service.
A cloud service can be infrastructure for hosting applications or data storage, a development platform, or even an application that you can get on-demand. You may read about Sofware as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Desktop as a Service (DaaS). These are all terms relating to specific technologies under the Cloud Computing umbrella.

The Cloud services that we deliver are transparent to the end user offering an almost imperceptible move from traditional in-house IT systems to the Cloud.
