It seems like Cloud is all the rage these days. You can’t turn around without seeing a message about Cloud Solutions. It’s a hot buzz word now, but at Intec Solutions, we’ve been delivering Cloud Solutions for a number of years. We have a clear understanding of what benefits the Cloud can deliver to your business and how you can best capitalize on the current IT trends.
What are cloud solutions?
In its purest sense, the Cloud is IT delivered as a service over the network. Going a little deeper, Cloud is a model in which IT resources and services are abstracted from the underlying infrastructure and provided on demand in a scalable, multi-tenant environment.
So what does that mean and how can my business benefit from the Cloud?
To simplify that definition a bit, it means that you can pay for your IT needs when you need them and only for the amount you use. No longer do you have to spend large amounts of capital budget to get the IT resources you need.
For example, historically if you needed to provide corporate email on an Exchange Server, you would have to purchase the physical server, purchase the Exchange server license and the client access licenses. Even in a small organization of just ten (10) users, that could cost as much as $10,000 – all payable in advance at the time of purchase. Now, with Cloud Solutions, you can pay for Hosted Exchange based on the number of users you need on a monthly basis at around $10 – $15 / user / month. So, that same ten person organization can provide Exchange to their entire staff for between $100 and $150 / month with no upfront capital expenditure. How’s that for actually saving money with efficient IT planning.
There are many other examples of how Cloud Solutions can better optimize your IT budget.
