What is cloud computing?
As you probably know, this simply means using the internet to store and access your applications and data instead of having them installed on your company’s computers or on-site servers. So if you’re thinking of moving some of your IT systems to the cloud but don’t know which products to choose, we can guide you through the available options and make recommendations based on your company’s specific needs.

A bit more info about the Cloud
What’s Software as a Service (SaaS)?
You might not realise it, but you’ve probably been using cloud services for a while. For example, all the apps in Google Workspace – like Gmail, Docs, Sheets and Slides, as well as Office 365, Salesforce and Xero – are all cloud SaaS.
What’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)?
IaaS is any core computing resource – like storage, networking or networking services like firewalls – that you get through the internet, by connecting to remote data centres. Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Compute Engine (GCE) are some of the most popular IaaS products.
One of the key advantages of using SaaS programmes is that they can be securely accessed by your company’s multiple devices, regardless of their location or operating system. This is usually more cost-effective than having to buy multiple licences, and having to support and back up the servers that the software would otherwise be running on.
Having your data backed up to an IaaS service means that even if a disaster or crisis makes your office inaccessible, you can still access your data from any other location with an internet connection. So IaaS is especially useful if you have remote workers who work in more than one office and even in different countries.
