In its broadest usage, the term “cloud computing” (also known as “IT Cloud” or “Hosted services”), refers to the delivery of scalable IT resources over the internet, as opposed to hosting and operating those resources “in-house”.
Such resources can include applications and services, as well as the infrastructure on which they operate.
Deploying IT infrastructure and services in the IT Cloud means that an organisation can purchase these resources on an “as-needed” basis, without the need to purchase, install and manage any IT infrastructure.
With the IT Cloud, IT capacity can be adjusted quickly and easily to accommodate changes on demand and as a result save your business a considerable amount of money.
HOW IT WORKS
In traditional enterprise computing, organisations forecast demand for applications and capacity and invest time and money to develop those resources in-house, or purchase them from others and operate them in-house.
With IT Cloud, organisations procure IT services from remote providers like AMJ UK and users access these resources over the internet. Software is hosted in the cloud and does not need to be installed or maintained by the procuring organisation. Storage and processing needs can also be met by the cloud.
Organisations pay only for the resources used, and users can access the applications and files they need from virtually any internet connection.
All types of organisation, whether small or large, can benefit from the IT Cloud – below is a summary on how the IT Cloud can benefit you and your organisation :
Reduction of capital expenditure – You will not need to purchase, install or maintain IT infrastructure or applications when using cloud services.
Cost effective solution – The costs involved can be budgeted on a monthly basis as simple operational expenses and you only pay for what you need.
Reduced IT Maintenance and Management costs – IT Cloud solutions can be deployed very quickly and involve minimum management and maintenance work as you will only have minimal IT infrastructure in-house (i.e. devices from which you connect to IT Cloud services).
Scalability on demand – Cloud services can be adjusted quickly and easily to your changing IT needs by increasing or reducing capacity and adding or removing users, as and when required.
Anywhere Access – Cloud-based IT services let you access your applications and data securely from any location via an internet connection, making collaboration simple even when working remotely.
