Let's Transform Your Business

Benefits of cloud technology


Cloud services are generally provided as a self service and on demand which means, resources can be provisioned in minutes by just a few clicks of the mouse. This takes the pressure off capacity planning by providing businesses with flexibility. 


Cloud technology uses an operational cost model, removing the large capital expense of buying hardware and software. Additionally, cloud systems are built with enterprise grade technology, this gives you access to technology and security systems that may have otherwise been out of your reach. ​


Pay for what you use and scale up as you need. This means as a small business, you can start off on a platform built for enterprise but pay only a small amount. As your business grows, you can scale your consumption accordingly.​


Backup and disaster recovery become a lot easier once you're in the cloud. Providers can mirror your setup to multiple sites making your business continuity planning a much simpler task. ​

Cloud Services refers to a large range of technology services delivered to customers, on-demand, over the internet.

Cloud is designed to provide easy and affordable access to applications and resources, removing the need for self-managed IT infrastructure. Cloud services offer flexible resources, economies of scale and is often faster than traditional IT systems. Typically with cloud services you only pay for what you use, helping keep your operating costs low and allowing you to scale your business as your needs change.

The adoption of cloud-based solutions has transformed how technology is run for many businesses. Rather than being a large capital expense every few years, it is now a more affordable, operational subscription.

Types of Cloud

Infrastructure as a Service

With Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), you rent IT infrastructure (servers and virtual machines VMs, storage, networks, operating systems etc) from a cloud provider on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Software as a Service

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a popular method for delivering software, on demand, over the internet and typically on a subscription basis. This method has been around for a long time. Some common examples are Dropbox, Xero, Hotmail and Gmail. With Software as a Service, cloud providers host and manage the software application and underlying infrastructure, and handle any maintenance, like software upgrades and security patching. Customers connect to the application over the internet, usually with a web browser or an app.

Platform as a Service

Platform as a Service (PaaS) provides on demand environments for developing, testing, delivering, and managing software applications. PaaS is designed to make it easier for developers to create apps, without worrying about setting up or managing their own infrastructure. It can work out much more affordable using a PaaS service, than it is buying licenses and IT infrastructure.

Serverless Computing

Similar, but different to PaaS, serverless computing focuses on building app functionality without spending time managing the infrastructure required to do so. The cloud provider handles the setup, capacity planning, and server management for you. Serverless architectures are scalable and event-driven, only using resources when a specific function or trigger occurs.
