Exploring Opportunities in the Cloud

In the increasingly networked business world, cloud computing is quickly becoming a key driver in moving from cap ex to more of an op ex model when it comes to IT spend. Op ex means more flexibility.  The cloud offers on-demand access to computing needs like increased capacity, limitless scalability, flexibility, disaster recovery, business continuity  and other solutions.

Businesses are rapidly embracing cloud technology, and each is creating its own cloud strategy. While cloud service providers differ in their definition of the cloud, it is safe to say that cloud computing is computing using the Internet instead of a personal computer or premise-based server to store, process, and manage data.

Cloud Infrastructure
Depending on location, cloud infrastructure may be classified as public, private, hybrid, or community. Based on the type of cloud service you need, Meridian Network Services offers its expertise in choosing the right cloud infrastructure.

IaaS – Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a service model in which an organization outsources the equipment used to support operations, including storage, hardware, servers and network components. The cloud service provider owns the equipment and is responsible for housing, running and maintaining it. This cost-effective solution offers scalability, guaranteed physical security and redundancy because the host uses multiple remote locations.

SaaS – Software as a Service (SaaS) is a software distribution model in which applications are hosted by a service provider and accessed through the Internet. SaaS’s advantages include easy administration, automatic updates, streamlined collaboration, and global access.

DaaS – Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is used by companies and customers who need accessible business-critical data in a timely, affordable, and protected manner. Meridian Network Services can help you find a trusted carrier wherever your business may be located.
