Cloud Services to Enable Your Business Technology
Cloud services enable your business to save time and money while improving efficiency. Your employees will be thrilled to use cloud services to access their data from anywhere, collaborate and work together more than ever. Through the use of cloud services such as Microsoft 365, your staff will be able to communicate through Microsoft Teams and share files via Sharepoint and Onedrive.
With these cloud services, your team doesn’t need to rely on a clunky VPN or remote access to get into their files. Simply access your data and work together anytime, anywhere. By using a Cloud Managed Services provider, you can rest assured you will have data protection in place and your cloud services will be set up properly so you can focus on your business operations.

Of course, we also provide business continuity services to ensure that if your business technology goes down, we have a way to quickly restore services and ensure your business stays operational.
Variety of Cloud Service Options
Public Cloud Services
The public cloud is the typical cloud services that most people think of when they think cloud. This would be cloud computing services offered by a third party, publicly available for anyone to sign up for. A few examples of the public cloud would be Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Web Services. With the public cloud, customers can pay only for the cloud resources they need, rather than a dedicated system at a set price.
Private Cloud Services
When companies are looking for more control over their cloud systems and infrastructure, they may opt for the Private cloud. Private cloud is sometimes referred to the internal cloud or corporate cloud. That is because it is typically built by the internal IT department or a managed cloud service provider and is specific for that one particular business. It is developed, hosted, and managed completely internally and separate from the public cloud which typically uses shared backend infrastructure.
Hybrid Cloud Services
Hybrid cloud environments are the most common when it comes to the cloud. As companies adapt and gain knowledge about different cloud resources, they typically opt to keep on-prem resources in addition to their cloud platform. This allows for an easier transition as employees learn more about cloud native applications and cloud platforms, and the internal IT or managed cloud service providers work to migrate the business to the cloud. Many services such as Office 365 make it easy to adapt to hybrid cloud deployments with their native integrated approach.
Benefits of Cloud Services for Your Business IT
By utilizing the cloud, your business stands to gain many benefits. For example, Sharepoint allows your teams to share content and files with ease, accounting applications such as Quickbooks Online can be used directly through a web browser, and other line of business applications can enable your staff to work anytime, from anywhere. Not only do these services allow for a more easy to use platform, they also provide your business the benefits of cost containment and an improved security posture.
Increased Collaboration: Cloud services make it simple for modern businesses to work together from anywhere in the world. By utilizing Microsoft 365 tools such as Microsoft Teams and Sharepoint, it is easier than ever to work together on projects.
Improved Security: With cloud services, your data is stored offsite and protected with advanced security measures. Rather than hiring a team or having to rely completely on your managed cloud services provider, much of the responsibility is transferred to the cloud application or hosting provider.
Cost Savings: By moving your organization to the cloud, businesses typically save money by foregoing the need to purchase and maintain hardware, software, networks and other infrastructure. If done right and working with a managed cloud service provider, you can reduce your budget for IT and allocate those resources to other areas to help grow your business.
Cloud Managed Services Jumpstarts Cloud Adoption
Using a cloud managed services provider to help your business with your cloud adoption will help with a quick cloud migration so you and your staff can start using cloud resources right away. Learning cloud IT takes time, and waiting on your existing IT to learn how the cloud works while trying to implement cloud solutions is a recipe for disaster. On the other hand, working with a cloud managed services provider reduces the time it takes to implement, and ensures moving from on-prem to cloud infrastructure is completed properly.
Working with a cloud managed services provider will allow your business to get the most out of your cloud services. With our expert advice, guidance, and support, you will be able to jumpstart your cloud adoption and get ahead of the competition.
