Much is discussed in the media, by vendors, analysts, bloggers and industry luminaries alike in relation to “The Cloud”. But what does it all actually mean?
Cloud based home working and business continuity solutions are enabling digital transformation for organisations providing home and remote working for their users, while retaining the robust security and control that enterprise IT and business demands.
For ease of explanation we can define Clouds into three distinct categories.
Private Clouds cover the broad mix of applications, data and users necessary for any organisation to function both effectively and securely. They are critical in allowing IT to centralise and manage applications and desktops and then deliver them as an on-demand service to any device while maintaining high levels of security and control.
Public Clouds offer organisations additional functionality or service options which are outside their own infrastructure, these provide them with infinite possibilities and expandability as an on-demand service.
Hybrid Cloud Due principally to licencing restrictions, deployments of Graphical Applications have historically been based on Private Clouds. It is not uncommon for such deployments to additionally include some Public Cloud functionality, like Cloud Rendering or Mail services (Microsoft Office 365). This “mixed” Cloud deployment is often referred to as a, Hybrid Cloud solution.
Remote Working Cloud solutions are being used more and more as cost effective Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Solutions to ensure businesses remain agile whatever the future may hold. Visit our sister company www.imscadcloud.com to find out more.
