Cloud Services

Are you considering to integrate Cloud Computing for your business? Don’t know where to start? At Troinet, we can help you make the right decision at any stage of your decision process.

What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud Computing is “the use and access of multiple server-based computational resources via a digital network. A network includes WAN (Wide Area Network) or the Internet using the World Wide Web.

To further understand Cloud Computing, one can compare it to the evolution of public utilities such as electricity and water supply. Before the Industrial Revolution, businesses had to put up two main outputs: (1) Power; and (2) Goods.

For example, a milling company have to build its own expensive water mills, coal-heating and animal-driven machines to produce goods. But then, the concept of delivering power (electricity) as a utility was introduced. In a very short time, it became a competitive necessity for factories to take advantage of the lower-cost option offered by public utilities.

Today, this transformation is similar with computing power. Instead of businesses installing, hosting and maintaining expensive servers, they can simply pay for “computing power” like a utility. 

Benefits of Cloud Computing

Cloud computing makes it possible to deliver applications and data to users rapidly, efficiently, and without the need for extensive capital expenditures. Advantages of cloud computing include: Shorter time to market, consistency and compliance, no need for special hardware, simple set up and customization, scalability, reduced total cost of ownership, and reduced energy consumption.

Be more agile and responsive to business conditions. Shift resources quickly and easily. Transform from capital-intensive model to dynamic expense model.

  • Strengthen work-life balance
  • Keep you data safe amidst disasters and threats
  • Get rid of bulky outdated servers
  • Access all your data from anywhere
  • Automatic back up

Anyone can work remotely

Your business won’t be hindered by sick days, lost devices, natural disasters, security breaches and travel. As long as an approved user has his/her laptop, desktop, or mobile device, he/she can access the company’s cloud and continue to work remotely, domestically and internationally.

Employees can stay in touch at all times

Sometimes getting everyone together at the same time is next to impossible. You and your employees are busy working hard to improve the health of the company, so each person’s task often takes them out of the office. Cloud computing enables groups and team members to collaborate and maintain contact remotely.

No downtime

If a device goes down, the business is hit with an unforeseen data loss, or systems need to be serviced and maintained, it often results in a complete interruption to daily operations. When the business is down, the company cannot work and make money. Cloud computing ensures anyone can hop on a device and get right to work without any interruption in service.

No office, no problem

Never miss a phone call, instant message, meeting with a client, or important email. You don’t need an office to benefit from all of the daily interactions that make your business thrive.

Workers can use their own devices

Productivity is often lost to training and retraining. When employees have to learn new devices and programs, productivity takes a dive. Users like their own devices and know exactly how to maximize their efficiency. Cloud computing does not require a system overhaul. Everyone can use the devices with which each is most comfortable and has mastered.

Brand can go global in a few days

Your business can go global in a matter of a few days. Expanded access to your market allows you to make more business connections and accommodate consumers in various time zones. Cloud computing provides your company with a global picture of your market.

Key Features

On Demand, Elasticity, Measured Service

Platforms beyond your walls

Cloud providers is a specie of hosting service which is sometimes called as SaaS (Software as a Service), whereby the provider runs applications on its infrastructure and delievers them to users. Cloud computing can also be called as IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service) and, most recently, FaaS (Function as a Service).

Easy integration

Cloud computing services are typically provided via the Internet, allowing users to access systems using standard web browsers. This allows for easy integration with existing enterprise architectures, tools and practices.

Demand-based pricing and metered usage

Cloud computing can be defined as a way of accessing a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. Cloud services tend to be elastic, using demand-based pricing and typically metered usage.

What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing refers to the online networks to store and process data. Instead of everything being stored on one computer or device, it is saved to a cloud for easy retrieval, regardless of the device the user is on and where in the world he/she is located. The cloud encompasses a wide expansion of definitions as it evolves in the world of business technology.

According to a Forbes article, Goldman Sachs published a study that revealed spending for cloud computing services and infrastructure platforms will increase by as much a 30% CAGR between 2013 and 2018. The anticipated growth for the “overall enterprise IT” is just 5%. Cloud computing is not just a trendy buzzword; it is being embraced globally by institutions of all sizes.

Reasons to Move to the Cloud

Cloud storage is the new online equivalent of the external hard drive. It’s like an external hard drive, except it’s bigger, cheaper, and more secure. It is more secure because it is not under your physical control. It is controlled by Amazon or Dropbox or somebody else. This means it’s safer; no one can get at it without your password. And it is also safer in the sense that you are less likely to lose it because you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. Learn more about reasons to move to the cloud.

Less Hassle in Managing Own Servers

The majority of users are not interested in deploying their own data center but prefer to pay someone else to do it for them.

Easier and More Convenient

Cloud computing provides applications that compete with traditional software by being easier to use and more convenient.

Combination of technologies

Because it offers so many new technologies and services, there are many opportunities for developers to create innovative applications for this platform.
