  • Simplifying Cloud Solutions The Top 5 Questions

    1. 1. Simplifying The Cloud• So much talk about the cloud but what is it? – Simply it is using the internet to access such things as your files, data or email, rather than having them locally on your desktop or laptop.• Why would you want these things to be in The Cloud? – Accessibility from wherever you are and from any devise (desktop, laptop, mobile devise), whenever you want it.
    2. 2. Is The Cloud Really That Simple?• Yes and there is even more benefits for your business to move into the cloud.• With any new shift in the technologies that influence how you run your business, there are also a lot of questions.
    3. 3. Top 5 Questions About Cloud Solutions1. How Do You Back Up Our Data In The Cloud?2. How Secure Is My Data In The Cloud?3. Is Server Redundancy Easier In The Cloud?4. Can I Run My Legacy Applications In The Cloud?5. How Do Cloud Solutions Cut Energy Costs?
    4. 4. How Do You Back Up Our Data In The Cloud?• Backups are frequent and automated. There is no human error element, that for example “Bob” from IT was sick today and no else changed the tapes.• Back-ups are sent digitally offsite to another location. This means your data is better protected against natural and man-made disasters, like hurricanes, fire or theft.• Data/System recovery is much faster. If something were to happen to your data in the cloud, that data can easily be recovered and brought back online
    5. 5. How Secure Is My Data In The Cloud?• Virtualization technology is what makes the cloud run, which is inherently safer than a traditional server environment.• A virtual server can hold 10x as much as a traditional server – Fewer points of entry into your network for malicious intent – Fewer servers to monitor and maintain simplifies security monitoring.• See server redundancy question for additional security benefits
    6. 6. Is Server Redundancy Easier In The Cloud?• What is redundancy? Having a computer system or network device that takes over when the primary unit fails.• Redundancy is built into the virtualization technology itself. – If one system goes down it automatically rolls to a new one.• With the Cloud SMB’s have access to a technology that in the past has been complex and expensive. – Business is up and running 99.9% of the time, equaling minimal loss in revenue or employee productivity.
    7. 7. Can My Legacy Applications Run In The Cloud? • Yes, the cloud actually preserves legacy applications and are ideal candidates to move to The Cloud. • Many legacy applications are built and only run on outdated technology. If a problem or upgrade is needed for the application it is very expensive or impossible to move or upgrade the technology. • By utilizing the application on the virtualized server in the Cloud, it allows it to run efficiently on a new technology platform.
    8. 8. How Do Cloud Solutions Cut Energy Costs?• Virtualization, the technology that runs the cloud is 60% more energy efficient than traditional servers.• Virtualized servers can be at 80% utilization. Versus traditional servers at 25%-30% utilization. Fewer servers are needed = less energy used.• With Hosted Cloud Solutions and eliminating your server, you further reduce your electric bill.
    9. 9. Summary• There are many benefits to taking your technology into The Cloud – IT Efficiency, Administration, Data Safety and Cutting Operational Costs• Get through the hype and consider a pilot project or application to move into The Cloud• Understand that not every application or system is a good candidate for The Cloud• Choose a technology partner who has experience with multiple Cloud projects and complexities, there is no cookie cutter approach.
    10. 10. Why Is Sun Digital Qualified To Advise On The Cloud?• Information Technology Company Established in 1996.• Working with virtualization and Cloud technologies with its inception into the commercial market.• Wholly owns and operates a completely virtualized data center.• Has an impressive list of references for successfully implemented cloud projects.
