The increasing speed of internet connectivity has made it possible for your IT infrastructure to be virtualised and stored in ‘The Cloud’ as well as a combination of data centres, rather than physically onsite.
Let’s cut to the chase – the biggest benefit is not always cost. However, a Pay-As-You-Use pricing model permits you to reduce capital expenditure while ensuring flexibility and scalability. As one of the early adopters of virtualisation and cloud computing, we are able to offer various management combinations as a central point of our services.
Uptime is always top of mind, but cloud storage also requires expertise in compliance and security in order to achieve full value. Another attractive aspect of cloud computing is your ability to scale up and down to meet changing requirements almost instantly, saving costs on infrastructure and low usage.
By converting to this model, clients can move IT infrastructure expensesoff the capital budget and onto the operational one, thus greatly enhancing cash flow without compromising performance.
The LanDynamix data centre meets the highest professional standards with always-on power, redundant cooling and a secure environment in every sense. In particular, LanDynamix takes responsibility for the reliability of backups and that there are multiple Internet links for maximum redundancy.
Our experts assess legal compliance requirements within your specific industry; as well overall security and protection of data and reputation.
We will assess your specific business requirements and the types of data your business needs to store in the cloud – including: plain data storage or backup and restore; mission critical or sensitive data; 24/7 access and security. The mapping of data types to cloud storage and service needs can be included in a larger SLA with us, or as a stand-alone service.
Not at all, often it can be more expensive. If you have a very stable business in terms of growth, and the computing power needed to support that growth is fairly stagnant, then often it is more beneficial still to purchase your own servers.
The biggest benefit of cloud computing is flexibility, scalability and usage-based billing. If you have a business that is expanding rapidly, and the computing resources needed to support that growth will require upgrading physical hardware every year, then cloud computing is definitely a necessary consideration.
