Cloud hosted Services are the way of the future. When the cost of purchasing, installing and maintaining one’s own servers is compared with that of Cloud Hosted solutions and the business benefits are obvious. QD Tech works with a range of Cloud Solution Partners, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and 365 or Google for Business.
Cloud Hosted servers rarely fail, do not require replacing and are highly secured. Service levels generally exceed 99.999% uptime.
Simplified Management makes it easier and quicker for technicians to configure services, provision users and correct faults. Combine this simplicity with highly responsive, highly trained support staff and the benefits are clear.
Another great aspect of Cloud Hosted services is flexibility. Traditionally a company would need to purchase, license and configure a Server or Virtual Machine when a particular IT requirement arises. This in turn incurs support and management costs.
With Cloud Hosting, a business can quickly deploy servers to facilitate a requirement and then cancel these as soon as the requirement has been fulfilled. This greatly reduces cost of ownership as well as ongoing running costs.
The “Big Three” of Microsoft, Amazon and Google are by no means the only forms of Cloud hosted services. Increasingly software vendors such as Adobe, Autodesk and Sage are moving their software to online subscription-based platforms.
