The cloud is transforming business. See how it can transform yours.

Cloud computing is the future of business

Cloud computing can help your business be more agile, adapt to change more quickly, scale up or down as needed, and reduce costs. Whether you are just beginning your journey or are ready to maximize your investments in the cloud, there’s a solution for you.

Platform as a Service (PaaS)

Build a complete software development and deployment environment in the cloud, with resources that enable you to deliver everything from simple cloud-based apps to sophisticated, cloud-enabled enterprise applications.

Software as a Service (SaaS)

Access your apps over the Internet from any device or browser without having to deploy and maintain costly infrastructure and without administrative overhead.

Cloud Solutions to Move Your Business Forward

We can help you get there with a solution that fits your organization – No matter how large or small.

Modern businesses require the flexibility that IT organizations want to provide, but limited time and budgets make it a difficult proposition. Most environments are built on virtualized server platforms and expensive storage systems that provide a small degree of high availability when implemented according to best practices. Oftentimes, the IT staff does not have the time or expertise to run these systems effectively. Business end-users are increasingly more tech-savvy and expect the applications they use to mimic consumer cloud applications in their ease of use and availability. Moving to a hybrid cloud infrastructure can help level the playing field, allowing organizations to architect their applications without worrying about the underlying infrastructure. Global availability with a local presence, cost control, and speed of deployment are some of the many benefits of moving to the cloud.

Our cloud solution experts are here to help your organization embrace the cloud securely and cost-effectively. See below for more information on why you should consider moving to the cloud and how X-Centric can help you take full advantage of what the cloud has to offer.

Cloud Benefits

Cost

Cloud computing eliminates the capital expense of buying hardware and software and setting up and running on-site datacenters—the racks of servers, the round-the-clock electricity for power and cooling, and the IT experts for managing the infrastructure. It adds up fast.

Speed

Most cloud computing services are provided self-service and on-demand, so even vast amounts of computing resources can be provisioned in minutes, typically with just a few mouse clicks, giving businesses a lot of flexibility and taking the pressure off capacity planning.

Global Scale

The benefits of cloud computing services include the ability to scale elastically. In cloud speak, that means delivering the right amount of IT resources—for example, more or less computing power, storage, and bandwidth—right when it is needed, and from the right geographic location.

Productivity

On-site datacenters typically require a lot of “racking and stacking”—hardware set up, software patching, and other time-consuming IT management chores. Cloud computing removes the need for many of these tasks, so IT teams can spend time on achieving more important business goals.

Performance

The biggest cloud computing services run on a worldwide network of secure datacenters, which are regularly upgraded to the latest generation of fast and efficient computing hardware. This offers several benefits over a single corporate datacenter, including reduced network latency for applications and greater economies of scale.

Reliability

Cloud computing makes data backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity easier and less expensive because data can be mirrored at multiple redundant sites on the cloud provider’s network.

Cloud Deployment Models

Public Cloud

Public clouds are owned and operated by a third-party cloud service provider, which delivers their computing resources like servers and storage over the Internet. Microsoft Azure is an example of a public cloud. With a public cloud, all hardware, software, and other supporting infrastructure is owned and managed by the cloud provider. You access these services and manage your account using a web browser.

Private Cloud

A private cloud refers to cloud computing resources used exclusively by a single business or organization. A private cloud is one in which the services and infrastructure are maintained on a private network. A private cloud can be physically located within the company’s own on-site data center. Some companies also pay third-party service providers to host their private cloud.

Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid clouds combine public and private clouds, bound together by technology that allows data and applications to be shared between them. By allowing data and applications to move between private and public clouds, the hybrid cloud gives businesses greater flexibility and more deployment options.

Multi-Cloud

Multi-Cloud simply means more than one public cloud used by an organization. This deployment model is gaining more traction because enterprises don’t want to put all their eggs in one basket and avoid vendor lock-ins. However, this is the most complex deployment model of all because it requires various components from different cloud service providers to work together.
