Hosted Cloud Computing

Find out why thousands of businesses of all sizes have  benefited from moving over to Cloud Computing – “Services in the Cloud”

“Cloud computing is an operational model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction” – National Institute of Standards and Technology, August, 2009

Services in the Cloud

You tap into the Cloud IT Infrastructure and Services over an Internet connection without the need to purchase and maintain an internal IT Infrastructure.

The name cloud computing was inspired by the cloud symbol that’s often used to represent the Internet in flowcharts and diagrams.

A cloud service has three distinct characteristics that differentiate it from traditional hosting:

  • It is sold on demand
  • It is elastic – a user can have as much or as little of a service as they want at any given time
  • The service is fully managed by the provider (the user needs nothing but an access device and Internet access).

Significant innovations in virtualisation and distributed computing, as well as improved access to high-speed Internet and a weak economy, have accelerated interest and demand for cloud computing.
