As more and more businesses are looking to revamp their outdated IT infrastructure, and migrate to the cloud, an industry report by IDC pegs the growth of managed cloud services in Australia at a CAGR of 20%, to USD 2.03 billion by 2022. That’s a massive growth, and is just a sign of things to come. If you are still using legacy enterprise applications on physical IT infrastructure, you will hinder your growth potential so it makes sense to consider moving to the cloud!
If you’re wondering what this is all about, cloud technology is a sophisticated way to securely access, store and manage your data and applications remotely. It is not only helpful in managing business across different sites, but also enables you to scale your business up, or even down as required. Adopting the cloud also empowers you with more control over your IT resources, without the need to allocate CapEx funds to invest in expensive physical infrastructure.
To ensure you reap maximum benefits from cloud infrastructure, it is essential to have a team that can monitor and manage the cloud environment effectively. Tangible Technology is a managed cloud service provider with extensive knowledge in cloud and networking technologies. Our aim is to help enhance your operations, protect you from data loss, security threats and downtime.
Here are 3 reasons why managed cloud services should be an important part of your overall cloud strategy:
1) Cost Management
Having a fully staffed IT department can be an expensive proposition, especially if you add the cost of physical hardware. Outsourcing your IT to a managed cloud service provider will allow you to focus more on your business, with the comfort of knowing that you are backed by a highly skilled IT team that can dynamically scale your cloud infrastructure without the investment and training required to manage a full-fledged internal team. Fixed monthly costs ensure you are in control of budgets and IT capex is greatly reduced.
2) Centralized network and higher security
Storing your data in the cloud always prompts the question of security. Our skilled team of network engineers use enterprise security firewalls along with advanced software technologies to identify threats and block attacks. You can now manage all your applications and servers in one secure location. By utilising VLANs, IDS and IPS you have a secure network environment for remote users to access regardless of their physical location.
3) Increased Redundancy and Recovery
Our managed cloud services involve a complex cluster of physical hardware that run virtual servers to ensure you have maximum uptime with minimal outages. Our advanced network infrastructure together with redundant power sources, redundant internet links and failover technologies offer redundancy and backup technology to ensure data is not only protected but always accessible.
Tangible Technology provide managed cloud services along with a complete range of IT offerings such as web hosting, VOIP telephony, software development and desktop support.
