The pace of change in technology, from cloud computing to social media, has raised the profile of — and demands on — the CIO role in many organizations. IT is now a crucial player in the process of implementing and delivering on a company’s business strategy. Meanwhile, CIOs have their hands full as they work to stay in step with ever advancing technologies and best practices. Companies evolving from a “traditional” in-house IT infrastructure to a hybrid model call for CIOs that are open to change and that take an active role in shaping business strategy.
Start focusing on what makes sense. Leave expensive and costly infrastructure hosting and maintenance to us. Server Cloud Canada’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) allows organizations to migrate and host their existing data platforms privately, within Canada.
Server Cloud Canada owns and operates one of Canada’s largest distributed cloud based infrastructures, offering clients of all sizes and complexities a means of transitioning on premise equipment and platforms to a fully redundant secured national cloud based hosted environment. Our team of professional engineers are trained and experienced in information technology, data evolution, and infrastructure optimization.
If you are a Software provider, you know that your underlying infrastructure will play a material role in your end user experience and differentiate your platform from that of your competitors. Let’s face it, competition isn’t as traditional as it once was, virtual environments continue to change the landscape, offering efficiencies in both a capital and operational expenditures. In a world of doing more with less, software as a service (SaaS) providers will be an industry tipping point.
The recent cloud controversy is yet another hard example of the importance and reality of security and privacy issues associated with cloud computing. The larger public commodity clouds have been built around the models of over-subscription and resource sharing – all in the name of immediate introduction and uptake. Usually one gets what they pay for, what have we really given up for the low cost (at times free) services?
Cloud computing is an emerging IT development, deployment and delivery model, enabling real-time delivery of products, services and solutions (i.e., enabling Cloud services) over the Internet. The Cloud is a virtualization of resources that maintains and manages itself. There are of course people resources to keep hardware, operation systems and networking in proper order.
