Cloud Services

 

C3SD Inc. understands as a society we are slowly moving away from the traditional Business Network where Desktops and Servers interact with one another to an Internet based environment, where most people will utilize a variety of devices to access information 24/7.   The types of servicers offered are considered Cloud Services (Wikipedia)  because the data is stored on various redundant servers on the internet and is billed monthly based upon the resources required.  Over the past few years the “Push” to move more services into the Cloud has been accelerated with the greater emergence of Wireless Broadband Access, and Smartphone technologies provide by the major Cellular carriers. 

Most of us have used some sort of free “Public Cloud” service in the past.  Typically a user visits a website, enters logon credentials and is provided with information that is stored on the host. In a “Public Cloud,” the user’s information is stored on a shared server in-which other customers data may also securely reside.  A typically example of a “Public Cloud” would be a hosted webmail account such as Microsoft or Yahoo. 

A “Private Cloud” operates much in the same way as a “Public Cloud” does however data is not shared among other individuals or companies because the Remote Server only contains data pertinent to one client or customer.

There are many advantages for Business to move some or all services to the Cloud.

  • Your company and employees will have access to the latest and greatest software at all times. 
  • Your company may no longer have to manage your hardware infrastructure in house.   Instead these services are moved to a hosting company or data center where IT professionals such as C3SD Inc. handle all of the up keep and maintenance. 
  • From a Budgeting Standpoint, your business can move the IT Portion from a Capital Expenditure basis to a Monthly Operating Expenditure as services are billed per user of the system on a monthly basis.
