What is PRISM Virtual Desktop?

Cloud Management is a means of hosting whereby you pay for IT storage resources without having to buy any physical hardware.

These days there are huge numbers of vendors offering cloud hosting services. Virtually all Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide some form of hosting, very often bundled with a subscription, or advertising costs as little as 50p a month. However, whilst these types of hosting packages are absolutely fine for personal, hobbyist or very small business websites, they do not provide the performance or responsiveness required for the majority of companies hosting needs.

Cloud hosting makes applications and websites accessible using cloud resources. Unlike traditional hosting, solutions are not deployed on a single server. Instead, a network of connected virtual and physical cloud servers hosts the application or website, ensuring greater flexibility and scalability.

The cloud is commonly used to refer to several servers connected to the internet that can be leased as part of a software or application service. Cloud-based services can include web hosting, data hosting and sharing, and software or application use.

‘The cloud’ can also refer to cloud computing, where several servers are linked together to share the load. This means that instead of using one single powerful machine, complex processes can be distributed across multiple smaller computers.

Our ability to offer fully managed cloud hosting and shared hosting on every major platform, as well as a specialist public cloud means that we will always recommend the most appropriate solution and hosting plan for every individual project.

Whether you are looking to move away from in-house infrastructure, for a solution that integrates seamlessly with your existing business infrastructure, or simply want to get someone to support your current web hosting, we can help.

How can cloud hosting benefit my business?

Unified End User Experience

The end-user experience is enhanced and your business can work in a globally uniformed way helping to deliver your brand to staff and clients. All users feel included despite different locations.

Enhanced Security

The cloud carefully monitors security more efficiently than a conventional in-house system.

Scalability

You get scalability with cloud servers. It is very easy and quick to upgrade by adding memory and disk space, as well as being more affordable.

Improved Collaboration
Your team can share information easily and securely and are connected across the organisation, increasing interest and engagement.

Greater Productivity
A cloud hosting solution enables your business to be up and available as close to every second of the year as possible.

Keeping up with Competitors
By implementing cloud hosting solutions your business can compete against bigger players in the market.
