Cloud Computing Solutions Designed to Amplify Data Storage and Processing
While colocation data center solutions are ideal for growth-centric businesses that need to prioritize data control, a cloud computing solution designed by Telapprise and supported by our network of partners virtually eliminates the constraints of scaling physical servers altogether. Just because cloud computing solutions are new doesn’t mean they aren’t subject to the Technology Lifecycle of Pain. Telapprise can help make sure you don’t trade once set of legacy problems for a new set of equally costly problems.
How Much the Average Company Overspends on Cloud Services
When you think about your business’s cloud computing capabilities, you need to be aware of three core “X-as-a-service” solutions that allow you to integrate existing network operations into a cloud-based architecture:
Each frees your business from the restrictions of a legacy network environment, but they also look slightly different, and knowing which one is best for your operations requires a level of expertise that most in-house IT teams don’t possess. What they do possess is a hard-earned understanding of your network infrastructure and applications. We pair our expertise in cloud computing with your team’s knowledge to design and deploy a cloud computing solution that’s greater than the sum of its parts.
Infrastructure as a Service offers the first step to elevating network operations above the restrictions of legacy network infrastructure. With IaaS, you don’t own any physical infrastructure, so you aren’t restricted to using specific hardware, at a specific rack, in a specific data center Instead, you’re paying exclusively for raw computing power—the actual computing time, storage space, and networking capabilities to execute your workloads and store your data. Your team still maintains a level of control over server administration since you’re still responsible for managing, updating, and securing the software running in the cloud. This shared responsibility model makes it an ideal solution for businesses with an existing server footprint looking to leverage cloud computing, but with an internal team that lacks experience navigating more advanced cloud platforms.
Platform as a Service expands on IaaS by outsourcing both the required infrastructure resources as well as the software applications and operating systems running on the infrastructure. Because the cloud provider is taking on management of more of the technical stack, you’re left to focus on what really matters to you. Your team doesn’t have to worry about managing performance, updating software, or even scaling servers. Platform as a Service solutions support a wide variety of uses including websites, e-commerce, databases, and even custom application development.
Telapprise streamlines cloud migrations by taking the time to understand what you’re trying to accomplish on the cloud and helping you find the optimal cloud partners.
If you’re trying to decide between Infrastructure as a Service and Platform as a Service, you may be pleased to learn that the right solution is often a mix of the two. That’s because, depending on workload types and data volumes, most businesses can benefit from the control IaaS offers while unleashing data processing capabilities with PaaS. However, knowing which data should go where requires the experience Telapprise offers. We not only pinpoint the most cost-effective cloud solution for your operations—we also design a platform around your broader business goals while delivering the flexibility you need from a sustainable, scalable network platform.
Cloud Computing and Cybersecurity
Gartner predicts that through 2022 at least 95% of security failures in the cloud will be caused by customer’s configurations and not the cloud service providers. When you don’t know what to look out for, a cloud migration can open your network up to a new set of security challenges, and the experts at Telapprise can help.
