The Cloud is still a mystery to many people and organizations. If you don’t know what it is, then it’s hard to know if it’s the right option for you.
Here’s how to determine if it might be the right fit for you and your organization:
In simple terms, the Cloud is computers storing your data, applications and systems in someone else’s data centre.
A data centre is a physical area in which a network of computing and storage resources enable the delivery of applications and data. Components in a data centre can include uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), ventilation, external network connections, routers, switches, security devices, storage systems, backup generators, servers, and application-delivery controllers.

This is where an IT-service provider, such as 365 Technologies, can help you choose the best Cloud model for your company and budget.
To determine your best options, we review your local infrastructure, such as age, equipment requirements, upgrading costs, your ISP’s bandwidth (to ensure it supports the speeds you need and connectivity requirements), operation and system compatibility, backup requirements, and service level agreement (what’s covered, including limitations, implementing the correct solution).
Simply put, we plan your implementation, test, and monitor it. We determine the costs, understand the limitations, and evaluate other solutions to ensure your systems work exactly as planned, so you know your return on investment (ROI).
