What is the cloud?

Cloud is often referred to as web services that store your data on a server. Making it accessible from any device anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection. These cloud servers are housed in data centers and can be found all over the world.

What are the benefits of using the cloud?

By using a cloud solution, your IT team no longer needs to manage physical servers which can reduce costs on infrastructure. Cloud increases mobility and productivity, as it provides universal access to your data and improves team collaboration. With unlimited storage capacity and automatic system updates, there is no limit for how high your organization can grow with the cloud.


What are the different types of cloud?

BAASS - What is Private Cloud

Private cloud

A private cloud is a server, data center, or distributed network wholly dedicated to just your organization. It often provides the best balance of security, customization and performance for your unique needs. 

Public cloud

A public cloud is a service run by an external vendor that may include servers in one or multiple data centers. Public clouds are shared by multiple businesses and can often be the most cost effective and low maintenance option. There are a variety of solutions and products that are supported and hosted on public cloud services.

Yes, the cloud is actually one of the most secure options. This is due to consistent changes to compliance and having a specific hosting company taking time to improve their services. Many security breaches are due to human error; cloud security is much more robust, putting layers on your data so it is much more difficult for cybercriminals to get past your gateways.

Data is stored on servers, networks and data-centres located all over the world, when you move to the cloud your data will likely be stored multiple centres. This is done for security reasons; knowing that if something were to occur affecting one data-centre, your information is safe and backed up in another.

There isn’t a specific answer on why the cloud is better vs. on-premise, it truly depends on each company based on their needs. BAASS is able to use our expertise to help analyze and address what option may be best.

Moving to the cloud can save you money in various aspects, with the main one being IT and infrastructure costs, as well as the ease of upgrades and security.
