Contemplating a move to the ‘Cloud’ but don’t know where to start? We have a number of services that will make this transition easy.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Moving to the cloud is easy when leveraging IaaS, but what is IaaS? Iaas is the delivery of your services such as hardware, network and storage services virtually, removing the reliance on traditional (and expensive) on premise server and hardware.
What are the benefits of IaaS?
- Savings: By moving to a virtual cloud based platform you no longer incur the ongoing maintenance costs of keeping hardware and networking equipment up to date, as well as the lifecycle management of this hardware.
- Scalability: Designed to scale with you as you grow, you have complete control and flexibility of adding or removing additional virtual resources as you need them.
- Flexibility: Access your infrastructure from anywhere from any device
SD-WAN (Software Defined Wide Area Network)
With the move to cloud based systems, the traditional WAN function connecting users no longer can keep up. SD-WAN lets you set up and connect sites quickly, exchange information between them, and deliver applications at a significantly lower cost that you can using the traditional WAN function.
It also IT administrators can use bandwidth more efficiently and ensure the highest levels of performance for critical applications without sacrificing security or data privacy.
What are the benefits of SD-WAN?
- Simplify management: As a centralized, cloud-delivered WAN architecture, SD-WAN makes it easy to scale across thousands of endpoints, whether they are in the office, satellite office, or cloud. IT has the ability to automate zero-touch deployment, using a single management interface.
- Improve the user experience: WAN optimization delivers optimal cloud application performance from multiple clouds to users anywhere. In the event of link failure or link degradation, application-aware routing can dynamically reroute traffic to drive constant delivery of business-critical applications. Additionally, businesses realize OpEx improvements by offloading expensive MPLS services with more economical and flexible broadband (including secure VPN connections).
- Increase security: Threat prevention is enforced at the right place. SD-WAN architecture features distributed security at the local level. Data does not have to travel back to the headquarters or data center for advanced security protection (such as a firewall, DNS enforcement, or intrusion prevention)
