Cloud computing offers the ability to access servers, storage, applications, software, and data through the Internet. It also provides an infrastructure platform and greater accessibility at tailored costs. Computing resources on the cloud are elastic, meaning they can be scaled to meet demand. Cloud-based resources also allow users the ability to use or decommission them when required. At CTIS, we have experience with the three most commonly used service models: IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service), and SaaS (Software as a Service).
Although cloud computing offers many advantages, there are many questions and uncertainties surrounding it. Would cloud computing be cost-effective? Would it be secure? Would it be reliable? Would it comply with government laws and regulations? How would licensing work on the cloud? CTIS can help you answer these questions in your journey to the cloud.
We have experience managing public, private and hybrid cloud computing environments. For our clients, we have designed and developed solutions that are hosted on Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure clouds. Services hosted on the cloud include the following: Oracle and MySQL database services, Windows and Linux servers on EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud), development environments and Office 365 productivity suite. CTIS can also help migrate email and SharePoint services to the cloud. We have experience implementing a standby site on the cloud. Our cloud integration strategies include seamless integration with on premise authentication and authorization services and secure site-to-site connectivity.
