The GO Concepts team finds secure, innovative ways for you to harness the array of benefits found by moving some or all your workflow to the cloud. Ohio companies of all sizes now leverage cloud assets to help them be more mobile and agile.
Although everyone from fortune 500 organizations to startups is using the cloud, the organizations that most benefit from hosted cloud solutions are those in the small to mid-size business market. Why? Because cloud options have made enterprise-level computing options available to small to mid-size companies within a scalable format. Now, the tools that were once only accessible to the “big boys” are now being leveraged by smaller organizations, helping them compete both locally and globally.
Every business asks different things of the cloud. Some companies only need a secure, offsite place to house their data. For other businesses, a cloud-hosted workflow is essential for their geo-diverse workforce. The reasons for leveraging cloud assets are as diverse as the businesses that make up our Ohio economy. However, here are the things that our clients most often move into the cloud.
When people talk about “the cloud,” they often aren’t quite sure what the term means. But it’s really quite simple. “The cloud” can refer to any data center that is used to host data and workflow placed there by businesses located elsewhere.
There are three types of cloud infrastructure: private, public, and hybrid.
The easiest way to think about cloud infrastructure is to compare it to storing your furniture. You can build your own house or garage to store the furniture, you can rent storage space from someone else, or you can use a combination of the two. Cloud hosting is similar. You can either design and build your own cloud server setup, you can rent server space in someone else’s data center, or you can use a combination of your own servers and the rented server space.
For the most part, companies are moving away from their own private cloud setups because of the up-front and maintenance costs involved. Some, however, are willing to pay the price for their own private cloud implementation citing security and compliance considerations. Sometimes, a hybrid or combination of public and private cloud scenarios is leveraged to get the benefits of both options.
When a company moves its data or internal processes into a cloud environment, the Internet can be used by both remote and on-site employees to securely access that data or utilize the hosted IT assets (applications on virtualized computers or servers).
