Technology in the Cloud

Amazon Web Services offers a variety of cloud-based services that help businesses move faster, scale, and reduce their IT costs. Amazon Web Services offers more than 90 services including storage, analytics, compute, networking, mobile, developer, IoT, management, security, content delivery, and enterprise applications.

OpenStack is an open source operating system that pools your network resources in a data center. Using OpenStack, you can create your own public and private clouds. OpenStack is commonly used to automate: workload provisioning, web frontends, application lifecycles, networking, shared services, computing, orchestration, storage, optimization, deployment, billing, business logic, and more.

Microsoft Azure’s cloud computing platform allows you to create hybrid clouds with data and apps located on premises and in the cloud. Many of its tools include built-in artificial intelligence such as image recognition and bots. Azure also offers robust compliance coverage with more than 70 compliance offerings. 18 Azure services have earned the FedRAMP High Authorization level.

VMware Cloud Foundation is another leading cloud services provider, offering one of the easiest ways to deploy and run a hybrid cloud. VMware Cloud Foundation can be used for on-premises, private, and hybrid cloud environments. It features an integrated stack, standardized architecture, automated lifecycle management, high performance and scalable storage, end-to-end security, and flexible deployment options.

Red Hat offers several open source cloud products including Cloud Infrastructure, Cloudforms, OpenStack Platform, Virtualization, OpenShift, and Cloud Suite. Red Hat’s open hybrid cloud infrastructure help businesses become more flexible and agile.

Security

In addition to the wide range of managed cloud computing and network services now available, your business can benefit from cloud-based managed security services. Providers such as

AlertLogic, Imperva, Sophos, Duo, RSA Security, and Vormetric offer managed security services that bring advanced cyber defenses to your business to detect, investigate, remediate, and manage security vulnerabilities and incidents.

Data

Applications rely on powerful databases such as MySQL and Microsoft SQL Server. Like other computing services, database systems have also moved to the cloud, with many familiar names like Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server providing cloud-based database services. Relative newcomers like Apache Hadoop and Percona are also major players in the cloud-based database space.

Content Management Systems

Not only are content management systems available as a managed cloud service, they’ve evolved to focus on the user experience, providing deep insights about your customers.  Two examples of this are Sitecore and Adobe Experience Manager.

Email

Hosted email is perhaps one of the earliest forms of a managed cloud service.  It too has matured. Some of the leading hosted email providers include Rackspace Email, Microsoft Exchange, and Office 365 — and we can help you make the smartest choice for your business.
