There’s a misconception surrounding the cloud that it’s complicated. If you ask around, most people would give you a different interpretation of what they think it is. But ironically, the cloud offers a far more simplistic storage solution than previous methods. The need for cloud services is on the rise, with Gartner predicting “IaaS will grow 36.8% this year and reach $34.6 billion."
Many people believe that your data floats into cyberspace where it hangs out until you need it again. Hollywood has also created this unrealistic myth that your data is easily available to hackers.
The truth is, the cloud has a physical location and, in this case, it’s located in our data centre. Think of the cloud as a safety deposit box and the data center as the bank. You store all your valuable data in our facility, taking advantage of the security and maintenance perks.
What storing your data in the cloud means:
- Always-on expertise
- Strategic, low risk locations
- Multiple connectivity options
- Uptime guarantees
The cloud is transforming industries all over the world. With no hardware or hypervisor to manage, you’re free to focus on your core business needs. The cloud is also configurable and can be combined with our other complementary services including colocation, disaster recovery, and network services.
