These days, talk about “The Cloud” is everywhere.
From storage, networking, and processing power to natural language processing and artificial intelligence – as well as a wide variety of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service applications, cloud computing services deliver convenience, reliability, scalability, security, and in many cases, cost-effectiveness.
But first, ask yourself these questions:
- Where should your company do each part of its computing – in the cloud or on the ground?
- Which type of cloud should you use – private, public or a hybrid?
- Who should you trust to manage your cloud computing?
Your answers can make a big difference for your business’ future.
The bottom line: We design networks that work. That means that, as your team performs its work, they are unaware of, and unecumbered by, how the processing occurs. And that’s the way it should be.
Statix Systems can help.
The Stratix Systems team can help you answer the important questions (and even the ones you have not yet thought of), because we have been providing expert technology solutions for decades.
We are not tied to one platform. We are not limited
by single options. Instead, at Stratix Systems, we have developed best in class options because we have the experience, the people and the partnerships that can provide the most productive and cost-efficient solutions – options that makes sense for your business.
Most important, Stratix Systems can evaluate your needs and help you determine the best solution for your organization. We will assess your processing needs, we’ll evaluate your need for security and we’ll help you budget – all so we can develop the best infrastructure for your business. And we’re always there when you need us.
We can build this environment in your own data center. Some companies want to own the hardware and have easy physical access to it. We can set up this environment for you in one of your buildings and design it so that your environment is secure and efficient.
We can build this infrastructure in a secure facility that has dedicated space for your environment. Our facility has redundant infrastructure, a feature-set that most organizations would prefer not want to manage in their own facilities. Examples: Power, cooling and security.
If you don’t want to own or manage your technology – or deal with the capital expenses – we can provide public cloud options and integrate them into your technology plan.
DaaS and VDI: Desktops in the Sky
If you want to move away from managing individual devices and toward a centralized, super-secure platform that your team can access regardless of device, welcome to Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).
With VDI, your team’s desktops live in the cloud. They run on best-in-class servers and include everything that your team needs to do its work – the operating system, applications, and also the files and work product your team creates. So, rather than updating and securing Tom’s computer, Shannon’s laptop and Angela’s phone, we manage on an advanced, secure platform that your team logs into remotely.
Your team still has the flexibility to customize their individual desktops in the way that is comfortable for them; but you have the security of one centralized platform. Plus, we can deploy a VDI option across multiple environments because we have built the expertise and the partnerships to deploy your infrastructure in the way that works best for you.
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) describes the delivery of applications and functionality as a service. Probably the version of cloud computing with which most people are familiar on a day-to-day basis, with SaaS, the underlying hardware and operating system is irrelevant to the user, who will most often access the service via a web browser or app. SaaS is often purchased on a per-seat or per-user basis.
SaaS has become particularly popular for customer relationship management (CRM) applications and enterprise resource management (ERM) applications, which account for more than 60 percent of all cloud applications.
Is it right for you? We can help you decide.
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)
Advancements in cloud and replication technology make Disaster Recovery as a Service an excellent choice for companies that lack DR expertise or bandwidth or don’t want to invest in a build out of a secondary site DRaaS is now easier to configure and operate, and you can activate virtual on-site or off-site resources on demand. The recovery environment also can be completely integrated so that employees don’t notice a difference when using it during an emergency.
These advancements not only do a better job providing you with the protection you need, but they may also allow your IT department to rethink data management and improve expenses.
Our disaster recovery is run in a private cloud, either your own, ours, or a third party’s cloud. Then, we will provide 24/7/365 monitoring and provide an interface that will allow you to execute recoveries in-house, if you choose.
Been thinking about disaster recovery? We can help you evaluate what makes sense for your specific situation and environment.
