BCS Computers offers state-of-the-art server solutions and installations allowing individuals or businesses to benefit from a central location to store, manage and share data. This takes away the traditional cost and associated maintenance issues of having in-house servers and provides you with a much more flexible and expandable network of data centres. Cloud computing is a secure way to grant or limit access to you or your business’ resources and vulnerable data.
Cloud computing is the use of computing services – such as servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics and intelligence – over the Internet.
Cloud computing makes data back-up, recovery and business continuity easier and less expensive.
Many cloud providers offer a wide set of policies, technologies and data controls which strengthen your security and help protect your data from potential threats.
Not all clouds are the made same so it is important to find a cloud based server which suits your specific needs. Below is just a brief breakdown of the various cloud types available and how they work.
Public clouds are owned and operated by third-party service providers who deliver their computing services such as servers and storage over the Internet. Microsoft Azure and Apple iCloud are examples of a public cloud. You can easily access these clouds and manage your data using a web browser.
A private cloud is used exclusively by a
single business or an organisation. A private cloud is located on the business' premises. A private
cloud is accessed via a private network only. This is the most common type of cloud computing used in the corporate world.
Hybrid clouds are a mix between public and private clouds which allow for data and applications to be shared between them. Hybrid clouds give your business greater flexibility and can aid your existing infrastructure and security.
