The term cloud computing can be a little daunting. The reality is we have all probably used some aspects of cloud computing in our daily lives without realising it.

What you need to know
Put simply Cloud Computing is the on-demand availability of computer system applications over the internet. Applications include data storage, servers, databases, and networking.
Provided an electronic device has access to the internet, it has the ability to access to the data and software programmes. It removes the emphasis on the device where there is crunching, and processing of data involved.
There are three main types of cloud computing, all different, and it depends on what the right solution for your business is:
Software as a service (SAAS)
This is typically a pay as you go or monthly subscription model. We as the software provider would host the application centrally. We provide network-based access to the software; for example Microsoft 365. As a business you would not be responsible for the set up and maintenance of an SAAS application.
Infrastructure as a service (IAAS)
This is a method of delivering everything from operating systems to servers and storage, through IP based connectivity as an on-demand service. Examples of this model include:
- IBM Cloud
- Microsoft Azure
Platform as a service (PAAS)
Considered the most complex, PAAS is a complete development and deployment environment in the cloud. Resources allow delivery of simple, cloud-based applications right the way through to sophisticated cloud enabled enterprise applications. The resources would be purchased from us on a pay as you go basis and most importantly, accessed over a secure internet connection.
The type of cloud computing you go for will depend on your business needs. However, we can guide you through the options.
Whichever one you choose; you can expect to experience a number of benefits.
At Dalys we have significant experience in the provision of all solutions and will ensure you select the right approach for your business.
