What is the “Cloud?”
In simple terms “Cloud” is a metaphor for the Internet and the Internet is a worldwide collection of computer networks, attached to which are lots of servers all “serving” different things, some serve email, some serve web pages, some serve databases etc. If your business has a web site then you are already using the “Cloud”
You may well have decided that instead of buying Microsoft Office for a few hundred pounds that you would rather pay for it on a monthly basis. This would more than likely mean that you have an Office 365 subscription which provides you with the latest Office software. This is an example of a “Cloud” service
Trunk Networks has a redundant, private Cloud platform that spans multiple data centres. We can deliver your business Cloud solutions on our platform, or on a public Cloud – Amazon Web Services (AWS), or a hybrid mix of private and public Cloud.
What sort of Cloud Solutions?
Cloud solutions have grown because the network has grown. Your business Internet is (or should be – if it isn’t please come and talk to us) faster than its ever been, more stable than its ever been, and more redundant than its ever been. A fast and stable internet connection means that your business can take advantage of Cloud based solutions.
We help businesses evaluate their existing on premise I.T. infrastructure with a view to seeing how they can benefit from Cloud based solutions.
Some very brief examples are:
- Moving on premise Exchange platform to the Cloud either as a Hosted Exchange solution or a migration to Office365.
- Replacing a on premise phone system with a Cloud based VoIP solution.
- Moving on premise file sharing to the Cloud
