CLOUD COMPUTING SERVICES

Cloud computing provides the infrastructure and offers platforms and software to users through the Internet. This network of remote servers allows users easy access to manage, store and process data. All-in-all, cloud computers make resources flexible and innovative and help to reduce overall operating costs and so much more.

Understanding Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing Services is the separation of computer software from hardware. Various forms of cloud computing rely on virtualising hardware, which dramatically changes the equation. By putting a virtualisation layer between the physical hardware and the code, it becomes possible to define a running environment in software.

There is the flexibility to choose from a single organisation (Private Cloud) or many organisations (Public Cloud) or a combination of both (Hybrid Cloud). Cloud computing relies on the sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale.

The cloud leverages virtualisation technology by allowing you to request “hardware” at a moment’s notice, you only pay for the resources used and delete it when your tasks are complete.

At Ukuzimanya we strive to avoid or minimise “up-front” IT infrastructure costs. We utilise Cloud computing to assist enterprises in getting their applications up and running faster, with improved manageability and less maintenance. The availability of high-capacity networks, low-cost computers and storage devices has led to growth in offering cloud computing as a great business investment.

BENEFITS

Costs

The use of cloud computing reduces the expense of purchasing hardware and software as well as having to set up and run on-site data centers.

Scalability

Productivity

IT teams no longer need to spend unnecessary time on racking, stacking and hardware setup which allows more time to complete and priorities business goals.

Performance

Large cloud computing services typically run through a global network of secure data centers, meaning they are constantly up-to-date with the latest and best computing hardware.

Reliability

Business continuity is more reliable as data backups and recoveries can be made through mirroring data on multiple redundant sites on the service-provided platform.

Security

The majority of cloud providers deliver a wide range of policies, technologies and management which can improve your general security position as well as offer protection on your apps, data and infrastructure from possible threats.
