Secure Cloud Migration

Cloud services refer to the on-demand delivery of compute power, database storage, applications, and other IT resources through a cloud services platform via the internet.

Speed, Simplicity and location.

Cloud Computing is a revolution that has changed IT. The virtualization of the cloud has allowed companies to see benefits including massive scalability, increased agility and low costs.With Cloud Managed Services, everything happens faster from soup to nuts. From buildup, to monitoring, to alerting. Provisioning of servers is much faster, since the physical hardware is already up and running on the cloud.

A traditional data center is on premise, hardware based, and stores data within a local network. The cloud is on off-premise data center and stores data anywhere over the internet. The cloud is redundant, so your cloud MSP can perform all updates, monitoring and maintenance from any location making things quick and efficient. In addition, your cloud MSP can safeguard availability during outages, since cloud vendors have multiple data centers in various geographic locations.

Cloud Managed Services simplify many processes. The cloud makes everything you need just a click away, so it’s easy to test in development and quickly spin up new environments. Cloud computing has not only changed the way of IT, but also Managed Services. Barricade IT exclusively provides AWS Managed Services to businesses of all sizes and industries.

Types of Cloud Computing

Cloud computing has three main types that are commonly referred to as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). Selecting the right type of cloud computing for your needs can help you strike the right balance of control and the avoidance of undifferentiated heavy lifting.

Six Advantages and Benefits of Cloud Computing

Trade capital expense for variable expense

Instead of having to invest heavily in data centers and servers before you know how you’re going to use them, you can only pay when you consume computing resources, and only pay for how much you consume.

Benefit from massive economies of scale

By using cloud computing, you can achieve a lower variable cost than you can get on your own. Because usage from hundreds of thousands of customers are aggregated in the cloud, providers such as Amazon Web Services can achieve higher economies of scale which translates into lower pay as you go prices.

Stop guessing capacity

Eliminate guessing on your infrastructure capacity needs. When you make a capacity decision prior to deploying an application, you often either end up sitting on expensive idle resources or dealing with limited capacity. With cloud computing, these problems go away. You can access as much or as little as you need, and scale up and down as required with only a few minutes notice.

Increase speed and agility

In a cloud computing environment, new IT resources are only ever a click away, which means you reduce the time it takes to make those resources available to your developers from weeks to just minutes. This results in a dramatic increase in agility for the organization, since the cost and time it takes to experiment and develop is significantly lower.

Stop spending money on running and maintaining data centers

Focus on projects that differentiate your business, not the infrastructure. Cloud computing lets you focus on your own customers, rather than on the heavy lifting of racking, stacking and powering servers.

Go global in minutes

Easily deploy your application in multiple regions around the world with just a few clicks. This means you can provide a lower latency and better experience for your customers simply and at minimal cost.

How Does Managed Cloud Services Work?

Cloud computing provides a simple way to access servers, storage, databases and a broad set of application services over the Internet. A Cloud services platform such as Amazon Web Services owns and maintains the network-connected hardware required for these application services, while you provision and use what you need via a web application.
