Cloud Computing For Business ManagementIn order to use the internet for computing activity, the cloud computing is the best choice.

If you are willing to have a proper business environment then you must need IT which enabled all the devices in order to make connectivity.

On the other hand, the stuff like data applications, security and networking and many other things provided you by the cloud service. Continue reading

European Cloud ComputingAs 2013 drew to a close, European Commission vice-president Neelie Kroes published an article intended to be a landmark pointing the way ahead for the European Union’s regulatory authorities on the issue of cloud computing.

In her paper, she described as “shocking” the extent of online spying and surveillance, and labelled personal privacy as “a fundamental right”. But she also said that the old-fashioned ways of preventing spying – by passing laws – would not work in the technological age, because those looking to find methods of achieving their ends using technology would not be stopped from doing so, and would constantly be one step ahead of the law enforcement agencies.

Apache CloudStackThis article provides easy to follow data backup and data management advice for small business owners.

There are very few organisations that don’t rely on a computer network nowadays and this includes most SMEs.

Of course, there are some sole traders and very small enterprises that seem to get by without a single computer. However, for most businesses in the UK a modest network of computers for all the staff to use is almost essential. Continue reading

Cloud computing

Cloud computing is the next big thing. So can you rely on storing all your data online or should you still keep some hardware on site in case of the dreaded server crash?

Cloud computing allows you to store all of your files online and access them from anywhere in the world. A relatively new public technology, cloud computing has received massive press coverage and business growth as companies look at ways of cutting costs and reaching an increasingly global work force.

There are many who feel the ‘Cloud’ is the future of IT support, though others warn against companies resistance to investing in new IT hardware.

So let’s look at some pros and cons for Cloud vs. Hardware Continue reading

Hybrid Cloud

Although ‘the cloud’ is a universal expression that involves a large number of connected through a real time communication network, it can be split down into three separate clouds; Public, Private and Hybrid.

The Public Cloud, like the UK’s very ‘The Cloud’, is called a ‘Public cloud’ when the services are rendered over a network that is open for public use and is currently being used by 39% of people using the cloud. 34% are using the Private Cloud, which is mainly used by businesses so share work and workloads between employees. Finally there is the Hybrid, currently used by 27% which is the best of both clouds, Hybrid cloud provides the flexibility of in house applications with the fault tolerance and scalability of cloud based services.

In 5 years’ time however this will not be the case, with both the Public cloud and the Private cloud expected to decline to 32% and 25% respectively and the Hybrid cloud to rise to 43%, due to the majority of people needing to have both the best aspects of both the public and private clouds.

Cloud Computing

With the latest trends in cloud computing and its forecasted evolution, it seems the next hurdle is finding a way to create an ecosystem that includes all disparate cloud computing providers.

This ecosystem needs to find a way of fitting into the existing IT infrastructure of an organisation. The magnitude of the task is put into perspective when one considers that each of these private cloud computing services has their own management APIs, service catalogues and technology stacks.

Cloud Computing:  at the core of SME’s bread and butter

It is already a generally accepted notion that cloud computing is almost indispensible for SMEs. Jim Cramer of CNBC deemed it as one of “the holy trinity of tech”, i.e. social, mobile, and cloud. This is particularly true for public cloud computing, which can be used without the high cost, technological complexity and need for staff to support the virtual infrastructure that comes with private cloud computing. It has levelled the playing field allowing even the smallest of enterprises to influence their market by allowing them to respond to real-time market conditions and bring services to market without delay.  Continue reading
