The Challenges of Moving to the Cloud
Data storage needs are increasing exponentially. Companies are retaining data for compliance reasons, potential legal needs, big data analysis and more. With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), companies will be storing even more information as every device and appliance connects back to the manufacturer to exchange data. While the business potential is huge, organizations will require fast, affordable and easily expandable storage.
Another challenge facing organizations is the increasing number of employees that work from geographically diverse locations, travel frequently or work from home. Organizations need secure storage that enables these teams to work together, share files and access information, regardless of location. Cloud storage can support these needs, while helping companies reduce expensive infrastructure costs and decreasing the burden on internal IT staff.
Cloud storage is a great solution for an array of business challenges. However, there are pros and cons of cloud storage, as well as variations in the speed, security, costs and scalability of the various cloud solutions. Read on to see how our experts can help you design the right cloud storage for your needs.
We will help you to choose the right cloud solution for your business and storage needs. We provide superior, US-based, maintenance and support to simplify your cloud storage management. There are three main types of cloud storage, and each comes with benefits and drawbacks. The largest differences are generally in the security of your information and the price you will pay for the storage. Here is an overview of the three types of cloud storage:
Our public cloud option offers flexibility and scalability to keep your productivity at its best. You’ll benefit from the latest budget-friendly applications, which are automatically updated for you with no downtime. Since you only pay for the services and storage you use, there are no wasted resources.
With our private cloud option, you’ll benefit from the latest applications and updates, however since this is a dedicated solution just for your organization, you’ll have strict security and backup of your sensitive data.
This option is a cloud-computing environment in which an organization provides and manages some resources in-house and has others provided externally. Focus uses private and public cloud resources to design a solution that utilizes the best features of public and private clouds and the ability to federate between them; basically the best of both worlds. This allows you to scale up as your business demands.
Which cloud choice right for you? Our team of experts will help you determine the best option, based upon cost parameters, security demands, anticipated projects and workload.
