Hybrid Cloud Solutions

Hybrid Cloud Solutions

Most companies employ a hybrid cloud strategy; combining, to some degree, both on premise/private cloud and public cloud service(s).

For businesses with an already established on premise environment, a hybrid cloud model can be rolled-out by incorporating public cloud services and making them fully integrated with current hardware and software.

This deployment model allows for businesses to take advantage of the cost-savings, performance, and accessibility of the public cloud; all while taking advantage of security compliance and local infrastructure on your private cloud.

Once you have made the decision to make the jump to the cloud, migrating all your assets can seem like a daunting task. Deploying your information or applications from a physical server to the public cloud, does not have to be an arduous, manual task anymore.

Popular Hybrid Cloud strategies incorporate some of the following cloud technologies:

Cloud Software (SaaS)

Cloud-based software, like Office 365, is less expensive to manage and run than on premise versions, allowing your IT team to focus their resources and budget on your core business. Little to no burden is placed on your physical infrastructure as Office 365 utilizes Exchange Online and OneDrive cloud storage — therefore, Microsoft data centers handle the heavy lifting. Either download the always up-to-date desktop app or, through your browser, Office 365 online applications versions (like Outlook and Excel Online) can be accessed wherever you have a network or internet connection — at work, at home, or on the go.

Cloud Infrastructure (IaaS)

Ensuring that your data is safely stored for the deployment of your application or project is integral to the success of your enterprise. Establishing a virtual machine through public cloud services, like Microsoft Azure, enables your enterprise additional and easily scalable cloud storage that grows with you. Store terabytes and petabytes of data, and only pay for the licenses and space you use.

Cloud Platform (PaaS)

Are you developing a new application or website? Do you need an environment to test and develop said app or website? As your project progresses, Azure's Platform as a Service (PaaS) automatically load-balances your data. As your project grows and the demands for your application grow, cloud space automatically increases to allocate resources to meet your needs.

Cloud PBX

PBX is your business' phone infrastructure. With Cloud PBX services, like the Skype for Business PBX add-on, you get all the features of a traditional, business-class phone system, without the expensive and complex physical hardware. Because Skype for Business operates in the cloud, you can receive and make calls, transfer, mute and unmute calls, anywhere you go, as long as you have internet access.
