Forresters definition of Cloud Computing:
Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.
We believe that Cloud Computing is already a major force for change in the technology industry. This is of great benefit to businesses because it drives down costs and creates a level playing field between the enterprise and the small business. Costs can be managed and spread monthly, and business applications can be consumed as a service on a monthly or annual basis.
Reflective IT have achieved the Microsoft Silver Cloud platform partner status. We have already migrated and deployed hundreds of Microsoft Cloud based services into the small business space. We are fully versed in understanding the different levels of product available, how these can benefit our clients and what is the right solution for their needs.
There are many ways which cloud infrastructure can interact with an existing environment, there can be a mix of on-premise and cloud based services, solely cloud based, or disaster recovery services in the cloud. Its an important consideration for any business thinking about a systems upgrade or wanting to invest in new infrastructure. Please call to arrange a consultation.
