Odds are if you are serious about the cloud, you're already using at least one of Microsoft Azure, AWS, HPE Helion, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud or somebodies cloud. There are benefits to each of the many cloud providers, however, it's not only just good practice to have more than one, it's also probably a necessity as each has its own unique features. Quite simply, not one vendor has the perfect answer to absolutely everything. If that were the case, there would be no competition!
Cloud Connect uses the latest in fibre hardware technology to create a physical link between your network, and the cloud. While most data will travel across the public Internet, Cloud Connect is a dedicated connection between your network and your cloud services. Learn what it is, how it works, why you need it.
In a world increasingly concerned with the planet, companies are constantly looking for ways to be “greener”. Paper straws and cycle-to-work schemes are increasingly common, but what can their IT departments be doing to reduce their carbon footprint?
The Cloud is a network of servers where each has a different function. Serviceteam IT has written a series of blogs surrounding the benefits and uptake of the cloud and in 2017 and 2018’s research reports. However, when you are choosing a cloud security provider, organisations will need to consider the level of data privacy and security at risk.
There are two main fields of investment which have arisen as goals for the end of 2019: cloud migrations and moving away from Windows 7.
Provisioning connections between data centres and external services has always been a challenge. Which is why only 28% of organisations use a Cloud Connect model to services such as AWS and Azure. Now you can consolidate multiple cloud vendors into a single user interface, quickly and simply deploy multi-cloud environments. Interconnect the same as your cloud business model: available in minutes, no lock-in contracts, pay-as-you-go and change capacity on the fly.
The rate of cloud adoption has increased rapidly, with more and more computing being pushed into the cloud, a trend identified in Serviceteam IT’s Cloud Snapshot Survey 2017. This growth in cloud computing has led to the development of networks of large data centres. However, this is already starting to slow, with an ever-increasing amount of computing moving back to the ‘edge’ of local networks. Processing will always occur wherever it is best placed for a given application at a given time and cloud has given us flexibility of computing resources; but we can't help but think that reliable, elastic and on-demand networking is imperative to deliver the future.
Cloud may be the heart of many companies’ infrastructure but it would be nothing without the veins of connectivity that keep the data flowing. The UK Cloud Snapshot Survey 2017 asked what cloud connection companies use to access their cloud solutions. This was split out from their normal office connectivity unless they relied on an open public cloud connection.
Provisioning connections between data centres and external services has always been a problem. Which is why only 28.3% of organisations use a Cloud Connect model to services such as Azure and AWS. Now you can consolidate multiple cloud vendors into a single user interface, quickly and simply deploy multi-cloud environments. Interconnect as your cloud business model: no lock-in contracts, pay-as-you-go, and you only pay for what you need.
Cloud Security has been a serious issue since the concept of the cloud began. The classic example was initially the discomfort of a shift from physically seeing the IT security infrastructure to simply trusting someone else with it virtually. One way to ensure a full understanding of cloud security, and security in general, is to understand the levels of your infrastructure that require protection.
Entering into the world of technology can be a daunting prospect for those without a prior understanding of the technical jargon involved. Cloud is one of the key buzzwords in the technology sector today, but for those that are new to the technology industry it can be difficult to get to grips with what it all means.
