Cloud Computing

asi helps you understand all aspects of the cloud models, facilitate your progression from traditional models to fast track cloud implementations with packaged solutions

Cloud computing is an emerging trend in IT. It provides rapid access to dynamically scalable and virtualized IT resources. As a new consumption and delivery model, cloud computing is enabling businesses to reduce costs and improve service levels. With its adoption predicted to get wider over the next decade, it will result in a transformation of IT.

While much is being made of the “the cloud”, what is less obvious is that it demands many new choices be evaluated: more delivery options, more initiatives, and many more applications. Delivery options now range from traditional environments to virtualized platforms, Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO). Several initiatives are now being considered and implemented by CIOs due to the arrival of cloud, including data center consolidation, “green” data centers, vendor consolidation, IT supply chain management, application rationalization, virtualization, employee self-service tools, amongst others.

But getting the most out of the cloud is not a simple exercise. All services are not created equal. Each has its own requirements in terms of performance, security, control, and availability. You need a clear understanding of where and how cloud computing can most effectively be applied to your portfolio of services. That means you need to weigh cloud against traditional delivery models and select the best service delivery method to get what you need done—at the right cost and in the right amount of time. Delivery models include traditional IT, private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid cloud.

To that end, Clients are increasingly turning to ASI for expertise and guidance to help them maneuver through the hype, benefits, and pitfalls of a cloud solution.

ASI’s trained and certified cloud solution architects, project managers, and implementation engineers help you understand all aspects of the cloud models, facilitate your progression from traditional models to fast track cloud implementations with packaged solutions—starting with your specific needs and questions:

  • How do I know which services are right for cloud and which are not?
  • What’s the most effective way to build a private cloud for today and tomorrow?
  • How secure are my cloud services?
  • How do I manage my service portfolio to ensure I’m receiving the benefits I expect?
  • How do I build a flexible environment that can rapidly accommodate changing business requirements?
