One of the many important business services offered here at TEK Utah is cloud services. Cloud services can be thought of as digital workspaces that help the flow of your business. There are three main types of cloud services that are available as public and private services, but you can skip the need to purchase expensive in-house frameworks or additional IT services by hiring TEK Utah to manage the cloud services for your business.
Cloud Services for your Business
What are Cloud Services?
No, we aren’t talking about those puffy white cotton ball-looking figures in the sky when we say cloud services. Cloud services are infrastructure, platforms, or software that are hosted by our business. These wide ranges of services are delivered on-demand to companies and customers over the internet. Our customers don’t need anything other than a computer, network connection, and operating system to access cloud services.
Types of Cloud Services
There are three main types of cloud services: software as a service, infrastructure as a service, and platform as a service. Software as a service is the most well-known because it encompasses things such as file storage and backup, web-based email, and project management tools. Infrastructure as a service provides the bones of the operation that are needed to maintain the different software as a service tools. Platforms as a service are the web-based environments where cloud apps can be developed.
The Benefits of Cloud Services
Most employees use cloud services throughout the workday, whether they’re aware of it or not. When you check your email or collaborate on a word document, you’re utilizing cloud services. Cloud services are also extremely beneficial for companies that need to offer services to their customers. When you need to make services available to numerous customers over the web, you are providing public cloud services. There are also private cloud services available to companies that work with sensitive information (i.e. banks or doctors’ offices) that need to have restricted access. Your business might even need access to a mix of private and public cloud services, and Tek Utah can make all of that available for you!
