What types of cloud services are there?

Generally speaking, there are three basic types of cloud services:

Software as a Service (SaaS)

The most widely recognized type of cloud service is known as software as a service, or SaaS. This broad category encompasses a variety of services, such as file storage and backup, web-based email, and project management tools.

Examples of SaaS cloud service providers include Dropbox, G Suite, Microsoft Office 365, Slack and Citrix Content Collaboration. In each of these applications, users can access, share, store, and secure information in “the cloud.”

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is a cloud computing service model by means of which computing resources are hosted in a public, private, or hybrid cloud. It provides you with high-level APIs used to dereference various low-level details of underlying network infrastructure like backup, data partitioning, scaling, security, physical computing resources, etc.

A hypervisor, such as Xen, Oracle VirtualBox, Oracle VM, KVM, VMware ESX/ESXi, or Hyper-V runs the virtual machines as guests. Pools of hypervisors within the cloud operational system can support large numbers of virtual machines as well as the ability to scale services up and down according to customers' varying requirements.

Platform as a Service (PaaS)

Platform as a service (PaaS) is a complete development and deployment environment in the cloud, with resources that enable you to deliver everything from simple cloud-based apps to sophisticated, cloud-enabled enterprise applications.

The original intent of PaaS was to simplify the writing of code, with the infrastructure and operations handled by the PaaS provider. Originally, all PaaSes were in the public cloud. Because many companies did not want to have everything in the public cloud, private and hybrid PaaS options (managed by internal IT departments) were created.

What’s the future of cloud services?

As the availability of cloud services continues to expand, so will their applications in the corporate world. Whether a company chooses to extend existing on-premises software deployments or move 100% to the cloud, these services will continue to simplify how organizations deliver mission-critical apps and data to the workforce. From application delivery to desktop virtualization solutions, plus a vast array of options in between, cloud services are transforming how people work and the ways businesses operate.

Cloud Advisory Services

Through surveys, workshops and benchmarking, we identify which workloads are suitable for migration to the cloud. Then, we recommend the most suitable cloud model, private, public or hybrid and develop a roadmap with detailed next steps.

Our Cloud Advisory Services enables you to identify suitable opportunities to leverage Cloud computing services either through an as-is migration to cloud or through a more modernize cloud native adaption route eventually providing sustainable business benefits .

Cloud Enablement Services

To ensure the suitability of cloud for your organization, we will implement a proof of concept (PoC) to demonstrate functionality and overall return on investment (ROI)

Cloud enablement is the process of analyzing an organization’s existing landscape, then architecting, deploying and operating a portion of or its entire in-house IT infrastructure, software and resources to either a public, private or hybrid cloud environment. A cloud enablement initiative can encompass migrating servers, operating system, databases, business applications and more to the cloud.

Cloud Implementation Services

For each workload, we will install, migrate, configure, integrate & administer the application in the Cloud. /p>

Privacy, Legal, and Compliance Issues Privacy is a big concern when it comes to cloud implementation. The cloud provider will have direct access to your organization’s data. If this data is meant to be private, you have to worry about what measures are being taken to keep it private. In certain situations, you may be violating privacy standards simply by storing the data with an external provider. .

Cloud Managed Services

We provide ongoing support, administration and optimization of your cloud deployment to maximize application performance and minimize cost. Managed cloud services are services that offer partial or complete management of a client's cloud resources or infrastructure.
