What is cloud computing? It’s on-demand delivery of IT resources and applications via the Internet with the convenience of a scalable, low monthly cost versus the significant capital cost of on-premise server, infrastructure, and the maintenance costs associated with it.

The benefit to you is it provides quick access to adaptable, low-cost IT resources. With this service, the big upfront investment in hardware and maintenance can be avoided. Instead, we deliver the right type and size of computing resources you need. That way, you can access the resources as you need, almost instantly, and only pay for what you use.

The benefits of Cloud Services

Swap capital expense for variable expense

Instead of investing in the technology you might need, pay only as you consume computing resources.

Leverage economies of scale

Because of usage from hundreds of thousands of customers are aggregated in the cloud, we can achieve higher economies of scale, which translates into lower pay-as-you-go prices. You can achieve a lower variable cost than you can get on your own.

Take the guess-work out of capacity

When making a decision prior to deploying an application, you either end up over-estimating your needs or deal with limited capacity. With cloud computing, these problems go away. You can scale up or down with only a few minutes notice.

Increase speed and agility

With cloud services, new IT resources are only a click away, thereby reducing the time to deploy from weeks to minutes. Become an agile organization by reducing the cost and time it takes to trial and develop a solution.

Stop spending on expensive infrastructure

You can focus on the projects that differentiate your business from the competition, not on your infrastructure. Spend time and money on developing your customers, rather than on racking, stacking and powering servers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where exactly is my data in the cloud being stored?

Storage locations vary for each cloud services provider. The providers we use have geo-redundant data centres in Canada as their primary storage facilities for Canadian customers.

What does geo-redundancy mean?

Geo-redundancy is the process of replicating stored data in multiple geographic locations. If you are located in Vancouver, it would likely be your primary data centre with replication in cities like Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, etc.

I am always hearing stories of cloud accounts being hacked. Is my data safe?

First, that would depend on the company that stores your data. Second, most hacking is done on accounts with simple passwords. We only recommend companies that follow industry best practices for security and we recommend people use complex passwords with at least 8 characters, a combination of
upper and lower case, and numbers. Something like “Aardvark2018” without the quotes would take approximately 730 years in a brute force attack using 2018 standards.
