Connects your organisation to the cloud.

The Cloud is a network of servers where each has a different function. Serviceteam IT has written a series of blogs surrounding the benefits and uptake of the cloud and in 2017 and 2018’s research reports. However, when you are choosing a cloud security provider, organisations will need to consider the level of data privacy and security at risk.

There are two main fields of investment which have arisen as goals for the end of 2019: cloud migrations and moving away from Windows 7.

Dog collars to toasters are connected as part of the Internet of Things (IoT), with experts predicting that by 2020 more than 50% of new businesses will run on the IoT. However, cyber security and privacy are the biggest challenges for IoT, collecting large amounts of personal identifiable information. As soon as some financial benefit from hacking smart devices appears, cyber criminals will find a way to take advantage of it.

Provisioning connections between data centres and external services has always been a challenge. Which is why only 28% of organisations use a Cloud Connect model to services such as AWS and Azure. Now you can consolidate multiple cloud vendors into a single user interface, quickly and simply deploy multi-cloud environments. Interconnect the same as your cloud business model: available in minutes, no lock-in contracts, pay-as-you-go and change capacity on the fly.

The rate of cloud adoption has increased rapidly, with more and more computing being pushed into the cloud, a trend identified in Serviceteam IT’s Cloud Snapshot Survey 2017. This growth in cloud computing has led to the development of networks of large data centres. However, this is already starting to slow, with an ever-increasing amount of computing moving back to the ‘edge’ of local networks. Processing will always occur wherever it is best placed for a given application at a given time and cloud has given us flexibility of computing resources; but we can’t help but think that reliable, elastic and on-demand networking is imperative to deliver the future.

Cloud may be the heart of many companies’ infrastructure but it would be nothing without the veins of connectivity that keep the data flowing. The UK Cloud Snapshot Survey 2017 asked what cloud connection companies use to access their cloud solutions. This was split out from their normal office connectivity unless they relied on an open public cloud connection.

Provisioning connections between data centres and external services has always been a problem. Which is why only 28.3% of organisations use a Cloud Connect model to services such as Azure and AWS. Now you can consolidate multiple cloud vendors into a single user interface, quickly and simply deploy multi-cloud environments. Interconnect as your cloud business model: no lock-in contracts, pay-as-you-go, and you only pay for what you need.
