Sharing (Resources) is Caring
The public cloud allows companies of all sizes to access the convenience and operational efficiencies of the cloud. In a public cloud deployment, the provider retains ownership of all the hardware involved. At the provider’s site, resources are shared among all of their customers.
Intraserve Systems provides guidance for companies interested in the advantages of the public cloud. We can offer a direct connection to the public cloud and reduce many of the drawbacks of accessing important data over the public internet. Once a migration strategy is in place, Intraserve Systems engineers ensure the process goes smoothly, and after the deployment, you can count on the expertise of our team through our managed services packages.
Benefits of Public Cloud
Since your provider supplies the hardware, your company will not incur any on-going equipment or maintenance costs. With Public Cloud providers, you pay for what you use. The pay-as-you-go nature shifts data-related costs from a capital expense to an operational expense.
Expanding resources in an in-house data center involves hours of learning, set-up, and configuration time. In a public cloud deployment, the necessary hardware is already present and ready to use. Because of the large size of public clouds, you can easily scale up or down based on your business needs.
Secure and Direct Connection
Intraserve Systems can provide a direct connection to the public cloud that eliminates many of the connectivity and security concerns associated with cloud.
You’ll have complete control and flexibility over managing your own systems.
Having your own virtual environment means you can get more value from what you already have—by allowing maximum use of your hardware investment.
ON-Premise OR Colocated
Intraserve Systems can design and deploy a private cloud environment both on-premise or in a colocated data center. We have data centers in downtown Chicago and elsewhere throughout the country available for your private cloud.
The Best of Both Worlds
For any number of reasons, many companies find that neither a private nor a public cloud solution is an ideal scenario. Whether it’s storage, servers, the firewall, or some other data center component, you may want dedicated control of certain aspects of your data center. Combining features of both a public and private cloud, a hybrid cloud offers the best of both worlds: the cost savings (OpEx) of a public cloud and the increased security (for business critical items) of a private cloud. Typically, hybrid cloud solutions are off-premise with some elements of the data center designated exclusively to your company, while the rest are shared among other customers.
Intraserve Systems’Solutions Architects can work with your company to design a hybrid cloud strategy ideal for your unique specifications.
You have the flexibility to indicate what you do and do not want to share. For example, you can protect sensitive data with designated storage while sharing the compute power of the cloud.
The burden of replacing, configuring, and deploying new hardware is greatly reduced in the hybrid cloud model. With the hybrid cloud, you’re only responsible for the hardware you want, or are capable of supporting.
Maximized Hardware Efficiency
Through the customized approach of the hybrid cloud, Intraserve Systems can help you structure your strategy in a way that maximizes the use of your hardware.
