Cloud Computing Solutions: Effective, Economical, Secure
Leveraging IT to meet the goals of businesses both big and small through SharePoint cloud hosting
Azure is an open, flexible cloud platform that allows your developers to build applications using any language, tool or framework, then deploy and manage these apps across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. Furthermore, Azure’s public cloud applications can easily be integrated with an existing IT environment.
Office 365 is the same Microsoft Office you use on a daily basis, except it is also powered by the Cloud. This enables you access and manage your applications, documents and files from virtually anywhere and on any device—laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc. And everything is automatically updated. SharePoint cloud migration is one of the lightest, easiest, most accessible approaches to shared cloud hosting.
Cloud computing is fast becoming the rule rather than the exception when it comes to the business sector. The number or organizations—from small businesses to major corporations—that are now developing infrastructures based around the Cloud model, or choosing to migrate from their existing hardware infrastructure to a simpler Cloud approach, is skyrocketing year after year. And it is plain to see what is behind this major shift.
Through Cloud technology, companies and organizations can now obtain the benefits of collaboration software without having to go through the process of setting up and implementing an infrastructure that supports it.
Some of the other main benefits of migrating to a cloud-based infrastructure are:
Minimal launch time. Rather than taking hours—if not days—to launch or update, cloud applications are typically up and running in seconds or minutes, and easy to get the hang of.
Low startup and capital costs. Maintain easy access to vital information with minimal upfront investment. Simply pay as you go and on how much storage space you are using.
Immediate global workforce. Enable your team to access information through the Cloud anywhere, anytime and on any mobile device, so long as they have an internet connection.
Intelligent automation. Self-provisioning tools give users the ability to spend more time responding to customer and business needs, and less time tinkering with manual intervention.
Greater scalability. Users can effortlessly scale their compute or storage capacity up or down depending on what they require, keeping your infrastructure simple and more efficient.
Big Data. In addition to helping store data, cloud computing services give you the ability to sift through vast amounts of unstructured data to find meaningful business intelligence—a must-have tool for making informed decisions about your organization’s future goals.
Reduce or eliminate infrastructure maintenance. Cloud systems can automatically sync with the main server to get the latest updates and patches, which drastically cuts back on time spent doing administrative tasks.
Of course, the primary concern with cloud computing is security. Serious companies need to ensure that private data in the Cloud stays private. Using one of two SharePoint cloud hosting platforms, consultants at Innovative Architects will make sure your migration to the Cloud is quick, easy, but above all, secure.
