The ‘cloud’; it’s a buzzword.

We’re not talking about actual clouds. There aren’t any magical buzzing radio signals whizzing over your heads carrying packets of information from your computer to a server farm in Switzerland. But I’m guessing you already know this, that’s why you’re here listening to us.

It seems completely incomprehensible but in fact lies within reliable physical infrastructure.

The ‘cloud’ gets a little overused sometimes and suggests an omnipresence for no cost. In fact the actual meaning is simply the convenience of accessing your files from anywhere in the world. Not to save your files on your local physical hard drive but instead to save them remotely to a server accessed via the internet.

The actual term ‘cloud computing’, popularised in the late 1990’s and made common during the 2000’s, actually evolved from the idea of pooling computer resources; CPU, RAM and storage, allowing for redundancy, resiliency, scalability and optimisation. This creates a virtual network. This network is accessed, as mentioned, via the internet.

Something as simple as checking your email classes as accessing the cloud. If you use Google Docs, Dropbox or the like, then you are saving and editing content on the cloud. Netflix, for example, hosts its vast selection of films and series on the largest pure-cloud around. It has a highly available, scalable, resilient, load-balanced infrastructure with their own CDN offering region to region availability, allowing viewers to access the portal and stream online.

If you wish to create your own private cloud whatever the size, we can facilitate that. A few U or a few racks, use them and create your own infrastructure with your own hardware in the optimum environment. On the other hand, if you want us to manage things for you then you can talk through your businesses needs and our qualified engineers can architect the solution for you. The true cloud – we supply remote access as standard on our dual feed network.
