What makes a good Cloud Platform Provider?
With the current technical advancements, cloud computing has gone from being a novelty solution to being necessary in a few short years. As more and more Cloud Solution Providers surface, it is becoming more difficult to determine which provider is the right one for you. For those who are thinking of taking advantage of all the different aspects of Cloud Computing, we have listed a few key points that businesses will need to consider before settling on a Cloud Provider.
Security should be the number one priority for organisations considering making the big move over to the Cloud. With web-born security threats such as ransomware, hacking and phishing threats, having highly effective security software has become imperative. At Cloudsis, we have invested in a state of the art Network Security system that allows the user to manage internet access and increase efficiency within their business, set policies by user, group, device, time and more. It also allows them to see who's doing what when accessing their network, restrict access to websites and specific devices, such as personal mobile phones and protects your system with a powerful solution consisting of: firewall, virus, phish blocker and spam.
An essential consideration when selecting the right Cloud Provider is what their support system is like. In this current day and age, a Cloud platform provider should be able to offer around the clock monitoring and support for its clients. Cloudsis’ support team will assess your queries, provide advice and recommendations on operational issues as at when they occur.
It is also essential for a business to find a provider that understands the challenges faced by your organisation and understands your business’ exacting requirements. It is important to make sure that the provider you have chosen has previously worked with organisations similar to yours.
With technology moving forward at lightning speed, keeping up to date with the latest technology is a must for a Cloud platform provider in order to ensure that their product remains up do date and reliable. Lack of up-to-date software might result in poor performance which then decreases the provider’s reliability.
The Cloud provider you choose should inspire your confidence in their services based on the experience they have. Cloudsis has been providing specialist Cloud solutions since 2009. We are confident that with all the IT expertise we have under our belt, we will be able to provide a platform that is efficient, innovative and reliable.
