You can rely on proven enterprise cloud security and hosting services – and choose from a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment.

What is cloud computing?

Simply put, cloud computing makes it possible for users to access data, applications, and services over the Internet. The cloud eliminates the need for costly hardware, such as hard drives and servers – and gives users the ability to work from anywhere. Over 90% of businesses are already using cloud technology in a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment. The major benefits of cloud include:

  • Elasticity: Scale up or down quickly to meet computing demand
  • Affordability: Only pay for what you use, and minimize hardware and IT costs
  • Availability: Get 24/7 cloud system access from anywhere, on any device
  • Simplicity: Free IT from managing servers and updating software

What is SaaS – Cloud-as-a-service?

SaaS – software-as-a-service – is a way of delivering applications over the Internet. Customers can access SaaS applications right from a Web browser, which means there is no hardware or software to buy, install, maintain, or update. The SaaS provider takes care of everything – and the customer always has the latest version of the application.

What is PaaS – Platform-as-a-service ?

Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) provides a cloud platform and tools to help developers build and deploy cloud applications. Users access PaaS from a Web browser, so there is no need to purchase and maintain the underlying hardware and software. With PaaS, developers can pick and choose the features they want on a subscription basis.

What is IaaS – Infrastructure-as-a-service ?

Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) lets companies “rent” computing resources such as servers, networks, storage, and operating systems on a pay-per-use basis. IaaS providers host the infrastructure and handle tasks like system maintenance and backups – so customers don’t have to buy hardware or employ in-house experts to manage it.
