Access your data, applications, and work environment anywhere, on any device.
To be successful in business today, you must be able to access company data practically anytime, anywhere. Not only are employees demanding to work remotely using their personal smartphones, tablets, and computers, implementing a cross-location, cross-device strategy makes good business sense. The question is how to make the same business applications and data available securely, efficiently, across platforms, and without much pain for your company.
The answer is cloud computing. neteffect technologies’ cloud services make it easy for your staff to use the same desktops, applications, data, and workspaces from many places and devices, enabling them to work efficiently and seamlessly at the office, at home, or on the road.
Cloud computing opens a new world of possibilities, enabling businesses to tap into the security, redundancy, and performance of high-end data centers at a fraction of the cost of setting up a similar infrastructure on premises, while providing a flexible and secure work environment for employees.
Understanding the cloud can be difficult however. Currently, we must understand the difference between cloud, fog, hybrid cloud, the internet of things (IoT), Industry 4.0 (Industrial Internet of Things), and how they are related or different. On top of that, providers are quick to throw out or invent new “as a service” acronyms which, like cloud, mean different things to different people. Having an experienced provider for guidance is critical when navigating the nebulous landscape of cloud services.
Not every workload or application is right for the cloud. Most businesses need on premise IT infrastructure in addition to cloud. Having a tightly coupled hybrid infrastructure has become the key to meeting all business, regulatory, and budgetary requirements. Unfortunately, not all providers have on-premise offerings or the team to install and manage them.
Cloud excels where it provides features you might not have in your on-premise infrastructure. The ability to spin up new resources without procuring hardware, high availability, and geographic redundancy are the first that come to mind. However, one of the most overlooked benefits of managed cloud infrastructure is time reclamation. Your IT staff no longer maintains or builds as much physical infrastructure, and that time becomes available for other tasks.
