About Cloud Services
Migrating to the cloud keeps your business competitive. But with so many companies touting expertise in cloud services, how do you choose the best partner? What does the transition from existing technology to cloud-based solutions look like, and how do you maximize IT investment value? Let’s dig in.
Broad Expertise in Cloud Platform Solutions
Cloud computing is more than just “renting” someone else’s server. You want a cloud computing services partner with expertise in all aspects of cloud services, including:
- On-Demand Resource Management — Are compute resources available when you need them? Can potential cloud solutions providers scale up or down on demand as required?
- Software-Side Server Infrastructure — SaaS solutions now dominate the software market. Look for a cloud partner with expertise in managing all aspects of software/server interactions.
- Operating System — What OS do you prefer to run in the cloud? The right provider offers support for multiple operating systems to ensure you’re always in control.
- User Access — Who has access to your cloud? What permissions do they have? Opt for cloud solutions that offer granular control over devices and users.
- Security Patching — Stay up to date with partners that offer automation security updates.
Hybrid Solutions – Perhaps you are looking to extend your on-premise environment rather than replace it? Choose a partner with experience in implementing secure, fast hybrid environments.
Exploring Cloud Solution Options
Not all cloud solutions are the same. Consider these key areas when evaluating potential providers.
- Security — Look for robust security services backed by SLA guarantees in case of a data breach.
- ROI — Best bet? Transition to cloud services as needed with a trusted partner to maximize ROI.
- Metrics and Support — What monitoring and support options does your provider offer? Good data means better management, which means reduced total cost.
