Cloud computing is quickly catching on with businesses across the globe as a cost-effective way to offload the burden of buying and maintaining information and communication technology (ICT).
Cloud computing lets your company use software or hardware owned by a third party, instead of purchasing and managing it yourself. Instead of buying new software and downloading it onto your computer, for example, you use the Internet to access the application on a third party’s servers.
What is Cloud computing?
Cloud computing is a type of Internet-based computing that provides shared computer processing resources and
data to computers and other devices on demand. It is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., computer networks, servers, storage, applications, and services), which can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort. Cloud computing and storage solutions provide users and enterprises with various capabilities to store and process their data in either privately owned or third-party data centers that may be located far from the user–ranging in distance from across a city to across the world. Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economy of scale, similar to a utility (like the electricity grid) over an electricity network.
Cloud Infrastructure as a Service
Cloud IaaS or Cloud Infrastructure as a Service and it’s one of the three service models available through cloud computing. Through this model, you can gain access to hardware off-site through the internet and use it as you need. For example, if you need additional storage space, you don’t need to purchase and make room for more hardware in your company premises. You can simply rent a virtual storage space with a cloud service provider and house your data there. At Musato Technologies, we provide excellent Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) services at reasonable rates.
Our Cloud Infrastructure as a Service offerings
We offer a wide range of cloud-based services because we understand just how useful this can be for small to mid-sized businesses that want to grow without investing too much. IaaS is affordable and provides businesses with considerable room for growth because you don’t need to purchase hardware to expand your business. Here’s a brief glimpse of our IaaS services:
Managed IaaS – We don’t just provide additional virtual infrastructure for your company as a part of our managed IaaS service, but also a solid management and support system. We will monitor your existing systems, handle operating system deployment and management, provide patches, security, backup, and restore your data, recover your data and storage services in the event of a disaster, ensure limited access to your operating system for unauthorized personnel, and handle operating system-based service level agreements (SLAS).
Enterprise Cloud – Enterprise cloud computing service is designed for enterprise businesses. These establishments tend to have large, constantly growing IaaS requirements and want maximum scalability. Our enterprise cloud services will ensure your company can grow without restraint by providing adequate infrastructure to support it.
Hybrid Cloud – Hybrid cloud service is essentially the best of both worlds as it includes both in-house and outsourced cloud platforms. Companies can use both of these cloud systems to perform distinct functions and get security as well as scalability and cost-effectiveness. You can handle all your sensitive operations in your private cloud and use the public cloud for less confidential processes.
Business Continuity – Accidents and disasters can happen but the world doesn’t slow down, and your business can’t afford to. If your private IT systems develop a malfunction or break down, you need to minimize the impact on your clients as much as possible. Cloud systems ensure business continuity and help you stay on top of your game.
Disaster Backup and Recovery – After a disaster, your first priority is to get the system back up and running as efficiently as possible. With disaster backup, this is very easy as all your data is stored safely in a remote cloud server and can be retrieved at any time. We can handle the backup and recovery process for you to ensure you don’t suffer any data loss.
Benefits of using cloud services
To support large-scale computation, cloud providers rely on inexpensive commodity hardware offering better scalability and performance/price ratio than supercomputers.
By deploying a very large number of commodity machines, they leverage economies of scale bringing per unit cost down and allowing for incremental growth.
On the other hand, cloud customers such as small and medium enterprises, which outsource their IT infrastructure to the cloud, avoid upfront infrastructure investment cost and instead benefit from a pay-as-you-go pricing and billing models.
They can deploy their services in the cloud and make them quickly available to their own customers resulting in short time to market. They can start small and scale up and down their infrastructure based on their customers demand and pay based on usage.
By harnessing big computing and storage capabilities, cloud computing gives customers the illusion of infinite resources on demand. Customers can start small and scale up and down resources as needed.
Cloud computing is highly flexible. It allows customers to specify their resource requirements in terms of CPU cores, memory, storage, and networking capabilities. Customers are also offered the flexibility to customize the resources in terms of operating systems and possibly network stacks.
Cloud resources are accessible from any device connected to the Internet. These devices can be traditional workstations and servers or less traditional devices such as smartphones, sensors, and appliances. Applications running in the cloud can be deployed or accessed from anywhere at any time.
