When a company considers migrating its IT infrastructure to the cloud, many business and technical dilemmas arise, starting with necessity, costs, security, benefits, and risks.
The first thing organization has to do here is to carefully assess its business needs and get to know the importance of stable, secure, and scalable cloud infrastructure to protect cash and data flows and make the infrastructure more efficient and aligned with its business growth goals.
Local servers are becoming a thing of the past, and any organization that cares about data protection and cash flow opts for data center servers that are securely stored, backed up, and maintained by security professionals
# Flexibility of Cloud IT infrastructuresCloud infrastructures are completely flexible and can grow as the company grows.
They rely on cloud platforms such as the Dynamic Cloud platform, which allows the organization to rent components such as CPU (central processing unit), disk space, and memory from the physical infrastructure of their IT partners in datacenters. The customer does not have to think about their hardware, renew it, or buy anything infrastructure-related. If they need more virtual space, they can just demand it from their IT partners for pay-as-you-go pricing.
# Secure connections in various locations
If your company operates from multiple locations, a traditional setup will require a firewall on each location – which can be pretty expensive.
To connect all those locations so that all parts of the organization can use the same Internet connection, firewalls must be connected through the Internet.
An infrastructure partner can provide this by using the cloud. There your company can get everything needed to operate safely and in line with business goals, needs, and predefined communication strategies:
- servers (fileserver, domain controller, Windows, Linux)
- website hosting,
- managed Wi fi,
- firewall. – business use of the Internet must include a security system, which can protect the business network on the internet and stops all types of malicious traffic.
Once the business migrates to the cloud, users can start using those services. The cloud is connected to a firewall and through it to the Internet, which means that not all user locations need to have a separate firewall.
# Storing files
With the expansion of remote and hybrid forms of work, business infrastructure relies on data availability and security from anywhere. With a private cloud solution fully managed by experts, any organization can opt for an IT environment that meets modern digital expectations. These environments are managed and monitored by IT professionals and monitoring and backup tools.
Engineers provide IP secure routers on every customer location (between modems and switches). This IP router is connected to the data center through a VPN (a virtual private network) and allows the user to access all cloud services and secure connections through the firewall. In this way, organizations do not have to worry about internal connectivity, and all infrastructure processes that take up time and space are outsourced.
Having on-premises servers means that in the event of natural disasters or power outages, your servers may be destroyed, or you may be unable to access your data.
Storing data in the cloud guarantees that it is always available, even if the equipment is damaged. Cloud-based services enable quick recovery even in the event of natural disasters or power outages.
Cloud IT infrastructure protects from the risk of data loss. Even if the local hardware fails, you can still access your critical data in the cloud.
# 24/7 data monitoring and recovery
By migrating the business to the cloud, the company gets a 24/7 monitoring server as a service – which includes all installed user devices. With the monitoring tools, IT professionals can react quickly if something breaks or needs to be fixed.
- Cloud Platforms provide lightning-fast access to the Internet at all times, as well as well-designed, secure cloud infrastructures that enable efficient data transmission, processing, and storage. 24/7 monitoring, support, and migration assistance are based on physical and virtual servers, ensuring the highest level of security, protecting your data, and limiting downtime.
- With the rapid development of the IT industry, companies will not be able to run their business without using the Cloud. This way of doing business will no longer be an advantage but will become an essential condition for a successful business.
