  • What is Cloud?

Cloud Computing

Cloud computing, often referred to as simply “the cloud,” is the delivery of on-demand computing resources—everything from applications to data centers—over the Internet on a pay-as-you-go i.e. rental basis.

  • Flexible resources—Scale up or down quickly and easily to meet fluctuating demand
  • only pay for what you use on a monthly basis
  • Managed or sometimes Self service IT resources you need, when you need them

Cloud services are hosted on remote servers in a datacentre - generally owned and managed by others - the Service Provider. 3Rs has some facilities of its own but also partners with selected service providers to offer a solution to suit all levels of customer.

Cloud services now include voice i.e. telephony. Hosted voice solutions work on the same principal - pay an affordable, flexible monthly rental per user and get enterprise level capabilities that you could never have with an on-premise pbx hardware solution. From one man band to large call centre, hosted voice provides a Unified Comminications solution for the 21st Century business.

Software as a service (SaaS)

Cloud-based applications—or software as a service—run on remote computers “in the cloud” that are owned and operated by others and that connect to users’ computers via the Internet.

The benefits of SaaS

  • You can sign up quickly and start using standard business applications
  • Apps and data are accessible from any connected computer
  • No data is lost if your computer breaks, as data is in the cloud
  • The service is able to dynamically scale to your needs

With SaaS, you no longer need to buy, install, maintain or update software or licences - you will always have access to the latest versions with your monthly rental.

Public cloud

Public clouds are owned and operated by companies that offer rapid access over a public network to affordable computing resources. With public cloud services, users don’t need to purchase hardware, software, or supporting infrastructure, which is owned and managed by providers.

Private cloud

A private cloud is infrastructure operated solely for a single organization, whether managed internally or by a third party, and hosted either internally or externally. Private clouds can take advantage of cloud’s efficiencies, while providing more control of resources and steering clear of shared public resources.

Hybrid cloud

A hybrid cloud uses a private cloud foundation combined with  integration and use of public cloud services. A private cloud can’t exist in isolation from the rest of a company’s IT resources and the public cloud. Most companies with private clouds will manage workloads across data centers, private clouds, and public clouds creating hybrid clouds.
