You’ve probably heard a lot about cloud computing; it’s a popular buzzword in the IT industry.. You might still be a little unsure of what it is though and how it could help your business. You might even have a negative impression, thanks to perceived dangers you’ve heard or read about. Our private cloud solutions, however, give you the best of both worlds when it comes to scalability and security. If you’ve been searching for cloud service providers who can make beneficial changes to your processes, while explaining things in terms you can understand, then you’re in luck!
You’ve almost certainly used the cloud even without realising it! Essentially, the cloud allows you to access and store data virtually (over the internet), rather than having to use your own hardware (ie. the hard drive of a computer). There are many benefits to this; not least from a cost perspective since you won’t have to keep buying your own equipment. While browsing Facebook is an example of using a public cloud with a shared infrastructure, you might want something a little more secure and personalised for your business. This is where a private cloud can come in handy – we’ll ensure you have your own dedicated hardware, and your own group of virtual servers where you can access pooled resources.
Rock IT are the expert cloud computing providers and explain things to you simply and clearly. We’ll outline how moving your data to the cloud can benefit you, and then take the steps to make it happen efficiently and securely. While a private cloud can revolutionise the way you do business, there are still legitimate security concerns when it comes to your precious data. This is why you need a trusted and reliable company who can help you plan out and implement this move.
At Rock IT, we have a great deal of experience helping businesses make this move. We know how to safeguard your data via firewalls, anti-virus software, and more, so you can have peace of mind. We’ll also advise and instruct you on what can go wrong, and how to minimise these risks.
Transitioning from physical to virtual servers gives you much more flexibility, and will make your life a lot easier. Here are a few benefits of choosing a private cloud:
- Scalability and versatility – if your business grows and you find yourself needing access more resources, you can scale up quickly without having to upgrade your entire system (you can also scale back down!).
- Cost-effectiveness – naturally, only paying for what you use can ensure that moving to the cloud will be beneficial to your bottom line
- Security – people are understandably wary of trusting sensitive information when using public cloud computing. With a private cloud we can devise custom security solutions – and we’re always available to discuss them!
If you’re looking for cloud service providers who can help simplify the process, and ensure that you understand what’s going on at all times, then Rock IT is the perfect choice. Don’t let other companies bombard you with tech speak – choose the cloud computing providers who will explain everything in simple and clear terms.
