Through our cloud services, we will look after your data and services off-site. Our cloud business solutions revolve around your business. We will manage and support all aspects of your system, allowing you to reduce capital expenditure, slim your asset base and make your IT more flexible.
Cloud Services are simply services that are hosted off-site and delivered over the internet. They can include everything from email and website hosting to backup and multi-site and mobile collaboration.
There is still confusion over what the cloud actually is and how it can help your business. We will cut through the hype to help you understand what the advantages and disadvantages of cloud solutions are, helping you make well-informed decisions about how to use it. Our agnostic stance on technology enables us to give you the best advice about cloud business solutions, including whether or not it makes sense for your company and, if it does, what type of platform would work best for you.
At its simplest, the cloud is a network of computers and storage that shares resources to deliver storage services over a network, rather than storing data on a single machine. Cloud Business Solutions are typically accessed over the internet, but some larger organisations also use dedicated private connections.
In many ways, the cloud has always been with us since the advent of the mainframe, and today’s offerings are really a mature version of the platforms that started life back in the ‘50s. It was the arrival of reliable high-speed connectivity that opened the door to the cloud services we use all the time today.
Lumina provide a number of services including private cloud, public cloud and Hyperscaler e.g Azure.
It depends on what cloud service you have is it public cloud or an as a service offering. The main focus should be on uptime.
It is the security in place to protect your cloud services. This includes everything from the technology and applications but also the policies and controls in place to ensure the security of your cloud systems
No, each offering will be slightly different as it will also depend on your definition of cloud. Essentially you will need to understand the solution being provided be it private, public, Hyperscaler cloud and then support options in place which could also be dependent on if you are receiving an as-a-service solution.
