Cloud computing has become an essential component in business IT. Not only is it cost-effective, flexible, and secure, but it presents businesses with a huge opportunity to mitigate risk and gain a competitive edge.
But before you jump in and adopt the latest cloud services, it’s important to consider the benefits and risks of moving to the cloud. How do you know whether cloud hosting is right for your business? Who will be responsible for managing your business’s cloud data? That’s where XBASE Technologies, a managed cloud service provider in Toronto, can help.
Moving to cloud services has many benefits, but it also poses potential challenges if not handled correctly. Many businesses think cloud computing is monolithic and requires no input or management, which is untrue.
At XBASE Technologies, we ensure that you have enough bandwidth to support cloud services, that interdependent systems are compatible, that you have reliable Internet connectivity with sufficient speed, and that you have the support you need for the cloud service to run smoothly.
XBASE Technologies’ managed cloud services in Toronto can help you reduce your in-house infrastructure and save you money in the long run. You’ll no longer need to invest in expensive equipment or maintain dedicated server rooms. Our hosting services are also scalable to your needs.
XBASE Technologies supports three key managed cloud hosting services in Toronto:
Private cloud hosting is often done internally or privately in an offsite facility. Since all of a company’s data is protected behind a firewall and little (if any) data is shared with external organizations, the private cloud offers the utmost privacy and security for business files and cloud information.
The one drawback of private cloud hosting is that all management, maintenance, and updating of the servers is the responsibility of the company, which can get both time-consuming and expensive.
Public cloud hosting is the most common type of hosting. Public clouds are managed externally by third-party providers with the express purpose of reducing a company’s IT infrastructure. A company’s data is stored in the provider’s data center and the provider is responsible for the management and maintenance of the data center. It’s a great low-cost option, it’s reliable, and it offers nearly unlimited scalability.
Hybrid clouds are a combination of private and public clouds. They provide the stability and security of privately hosted cloud servers and the on-demand capabilities of the public cloud.
Many small- and medium-sized businesses opt for hybrid cloud hosting because it allows companies to choose how they want to store their data. They can opt to store sensitive client information using the private cloud, which is protected by the company’s firewall, and store other less sensitive resources in the public cloud.
Hybrid cloud hosting is also cost effective as you have the flexibility to scale up or scale down and migrate data when needed, without incurring costly maintenance fees.
When it comes to managed cloud services in Toronto, XBASE Technologies can help you realize the true benefits of the cloud. Our hosting infrastructure consists of three geographically diverse Tier 3 data centers in Southern Ontario—one for communications, one for private hosting, and one for backups. We provide fully managed virtualized server hosting, using high-end hardware and software, to save you money, mitigate risk, and help you gain a competitive advantage.
We also offer nightly image backups of all servers, stored in an offsite XBASE data centre for 30 days, as reverse incrementals. Not all managed cloud services do this.
