Although traditionally BusinessPort have offered Agility as a client hosted application we are cognisant of the growing demand for organisations to utilise the benefits of the Cloud and we now offer an Infrastructure as a Service (IAAS) model in either a Private or Public cloud hosted environment. The IAAS cloud offering can deliver the following features and benefits.
Resource is available as and when the client needs it and, therefore, there are no delays in expanding capacity or the wastage of unused capacity.
NO INVESTMENT IN HARDWARE
The underlying physical hardware that supports an IaaS service is set up and maintained by the cloud provider, saving the time and cost of doing so on the client side.
PHYSICAL SECURITY OF DATA CENTRE LOCATIONS
Services available through a public cloud, or private clouds hosted externally with the cloud provider, benefit from the physical security afforded to the servers which are hosted within a data centre.
UTILITY STYLE COSTING
The service can be accessed on demand and the client only pays for the resource that they actually use.
The service can usually be accessed from any location as long as there is an internet connection and the security protocol of the cloud allows it.
NO SINGLE POINT OF FAILURE
If one server or network switch were to fail, for example, the broader service would be unaffected due to the remaining multitude of hardware resources and redundancy configurations. For many services if one entire data center were to go offline, never mind one server, the IaaS service could still run successfully.
Our 27001 certified Cloud Hosting partner can deliver dedicated private clouds to organisations who have ironclad security or specific hardware requirements.
Customers who chose dedicated private clouds receive a fully managed service, either Windows or Linux, running on enterprise class hardware from Tier III data centre facilities located in Dundee and Aberdeen. Alternatively we can offer public cloud solutions utilising either a Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Service IAAS.
