Here is whats happened, and how to address it.
In this day and age, nearly every industry relies on technology to make its day-to-day operations run smoothly. Whether it’s your point of sale, shared files, or the storage of sensitive information, you depend on these systems to work without interruption, so that you can do the same. High-quality, reliable IT services are especially crucial to the medical industry. Patient data, workflow systems, and personal computers are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the combination of medical bookkeeping and technology.
When major leaps in virtualization and other technologies began to converge into what we now call "cloud computing," the IT world began a seismic shift that continues to be a powerful force. Infrastructure-as-a-Service or IaaS grew at a moderate pace for many years but is now accelerating relative to its cloud cousins Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). According to a Gartner report released last month, IaaS as a portion of worldwide public cloud consumption grew 31.9% in 2015 and expected to reach 38.4% in 2016 ($22.4 billion). This number was well ahead of the growth for last years' runner-up - cloud security services, and far higher than SaaS, the traditional cloud growth-rate champion.
When it comes to managing IT, one of the most important goals historically has been staying "in control." In years gone by, any changes to a user’s internal or hosted IT environment was a “closed’ proposition with most IT managers or Managed Service Providers (MSPs) fighting hard to keep constraints on every aspect of the systems they supported. There were some valid reasons for this at the beginning, but over time users demanded more flexibility while those running IT, became overwhelmed with increasing change requests.
A few years ago, the enterprise was abuzz with concerns about the security implications of the use of mobile devices by employees. Many IT folks wanted to restrict the use of mobile devices over which they had little control. While the media embraced BYOD as the next big thing, those tasked with maintaining the security of corporate data were less enthusiastic.
Our recently restructured IaaS cloud server platform was the result of our fifteen year legacy of pioneering new managed application and web hosting services. During this time, we have constantly worked with clients to determine how to best meet their most demanding IT challenges. We have also remained keenly aware of how competitors have been approaching the market as it has evolved.
The Internet of Things will bring about an explosion in the number of connected devices and the data we have about the world. The one-off sale of useful objects — long the foundation of commerce — is likely to be replaced by the sale of services and personalized relationships with customers in a data and application ecosystem, bringing about a revolution in business models.
Many of the people reading these words are at work. They are looking at a screen connected to a computer that contains gigabytes of data and applications crucial to their productivity. Without the device, they are unable to work. Almost everyone else reading this article will have a smartphone in hand. Smartphones like the iPhone can carry gigabytes of data, but almost all of it will also live in the cloud and be accessible from any other device.
With the restructuring of our IaaS cloud server platform, we offer even better value for money with a tiered structure that empowers enterprise cloud clients to choose the best resource profile for their workloads. We've been hosting enterprise clients for a decade and half. Over the years we've developed a deep insight into the infrastructure hosting needs of business.
