Future Proof Your Business with the Cloud
Ensuring a smooth transition to the cloud can seem like a daunting undertaking, but if done well, will ensure that your applications and data are transferred to the cloud with little to no interruption to your business’s every day operations.
RHYNO Networks will assess your cloud readiness and deliver an individualized plan of action to fast track your transition into the cloud. Our goal is to give you a gap-analysis of your business and inform you of what applications can be moved to the cloud smoothly. We’re with you every step of the way.
Why Get a Cloud Assessment?
If you want to transition into the cloud, you have to have a strategy. Successful migration requires a comprehensive understanding of all technologies and practices involved. Getting an assessment will give you a better idea of where your business data stands and ensure that any potential business interruption is avoided.
RHYNO Networks’ Cloud Readiness Assessment Includes:
Wherever you choose to host, cloud platforms enable companies to host their servers, workstations or applications in the cloud, or internet-based datacenter.
Cloud storage is a cloud computing model that stores data on the Internet through a cloud computing provider who manages and operates data storage as a service. It’s delivered on demand with just-in-time capacity and costs. This eliminates buying and managing your own data storage infrastructure. Having your data stored in the cloud ensures it is backed up and protected in a secure and safe location. Being able to access your data again quickly allows you to conduct business as usual, minimizing any downtime and loss of productivity.
Cloud hosting allows users to launch or host applications and operations remotely, securely and at scale. As needs increase, hardware and bandwidth can be increased as well. Benefits include the ability to mitigate a natural disaster, power failure or other crisis. Cloud hosting delivers powerful options for business that weigh against purchase and maintenance of onsite servers.
Data Centers host an organization’s data systems in a well-protected physical and storage infrastructure along with servers, storage subsystems, networking switches, routers, firewalls, cabling and physical racks.
Is there a difference between a data center and cloud data center?
Data centers can be located anywhere. When a service provider hosts their servers and network equipment in a data center, they can provide hosting options to their client with a secure and dedicated focus. Because client’s servers are virtually hosted within the main servers, scalability is always an option, as is the amount of data stored. Costs around this type of hosting are usually set at a monthly rate.
Cloud data centers also offer high scalability with secure hosting, however, the major cloud data centers require customers to pay per use for data transfers into and out of the cloud. This can be costly depending on how much transfer data is used per month. Conversely, storing large amounts of data in the cloud can be very cost effective if used as a cloud back up solution.
Effectively Manage Your Backup Process
Cloud-based backups are soaring in popularity for all industries. Cloud solutions are providing the infrastructure needed to store data and they can effectively manage backup and disaster recovery processes.
When using cloud-based backups, you can avoid the hassle of capital investments and the additional costs of managing the environment. These implementations will aid with scalability and assist in keeping tracking of the geographic distance, in the event of a regional disaster. Cloud solutions are capable of supporting both on-site operations and cloud-based production environments.
You can opt to store backup or replicated data in a cloud, while resuming the production in your own data center. This hybrid approach allows you to scale, without going through the hassle of moving your production environment. With cloud to cloud models.
