FAQs

What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing describes the delivery of on-demand computing services like applications, processing power, and storage from a state-of-the-art data centre. So when you sign up for cloud computing services, you rent enterprise computing infrastructure to power your physical and virtual business operations.

Why make the move to the cloud?

Cloud computing demands a strategy that matches your unique business goals. Whether it’s a serverless approach for economic benefits or one that boosts innovation and speed, cloud solutions drive operational efficiency. 

Key benefits of moving to the cloud include:

– No upfront costs of running IT infrastructure, exchanging capital expenses with operational expenses
– Redeploy current IT resources to higher-value activities
– Gain a competitive advantage over businesses who devote IT resources to managing infrastructure
– Scale-up on demand by only paying for what you need, when you need it
– Adapt quickly to changing market conditions
– Benefit from economies of scale
– Optimised security features and networked backups
– Choose from public, private or hybrid storage solutions depending on your needs
– Determine the level of control with as-a-service options
– Teams can collaborate from widespread locations with worldwide access

What are the different types of cloud computing?

There are three main cloud computing services models. But for the most part, it comes down to a pay-as-you-use model or a fixed-term pricing model that allows you to add/ remove resources and manage data usages and accounts through dashboards or applications.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is the basic layer of cloud computing and allows you to set up virtual servers and storage in a data centre.

Platform as a Service (PaaS) is a set of tools and services which make it easier for businesses to develop, run and manage applications without building and maintaining the infrastructure typically needed.

Software as a Service (Saas)
is a way of delivering applications over the internet as a service. It is software that is owned, delivered and managed remotely by providers.

What service provider should I use?

Deciding which cloud provider is right for you comes down to your unique business needs.
