Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services – servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, and more—over the Internet (“the Cloud”).
Cloud computing is basically Internet-based computing that provides shared computer processing resources and data to computers and other devices on demand. This means that we can help you store and access data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive.
Here are a few of the things you can do with the Cloud:
- Create new apps and services
- Store, back up, and recover data
- Host websites and blogs
- Stream audio and video
- Deliver software on demand
- Analyse data for patterns and make predictions
Resman Director Neil Willcox says: ‘Resman’s Cloud Services enable you to work smarter and more flexibly by accessing your data and services from anywhere, any time. With Cloud computing you only use what resources you need, and in turn you only pay for what resources you use. Our portfolio of Cloud services allows your business to control costs through predictable, yet flexible, pricing models.’
There are some key benefits to Cloud computing and many reasons they may help your business including:
Eliminate the capital expense of buying hardware and software, running and setting up servers, the racks, the round-the-clock electricity for power and cooling, the IT experts for managing the infrastructure.
Most Cloud computing services are provided self service and on demand, so even vast amounts of computing resources can be provisioned in minutes, typically with just a few mouse clicks, giving businesses a lot of flexibility and taking the pressure off capacity planning.
On-site servers typically require a lot of “racking and stacking”, hardware set up, software patching, and other time-consuming IT management chores. Cloud computing removes the need for many of these tasks, so IT teams can spend time on achieving more important business goals.
The biggest Cloud computing services run on a worldwide network of secure datacenters, which are regularly upgraded to the latest generation of fast and efficient computing hardware. This offers several benefits over a single server, including reduced network inactivity.
Cloud computing makes data backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity easier and less expensive, because data can be mirrored at multiple redundant sites on the Cloud provider’s network.
Let Resman manage your Cloud services so you can focus on your core business instead of spending time and money on computer infrastructure.
