CHARACTERISTICS of CLOUD SERVICES

Cloud solutions can deliver not only technically, but also financially. Revenue spent can shift to the Operating Expenditure (OPEX) financial line as opposed to hardware and software licensed solutions, which sit on the Capital Expenditure (CAPEX). Combined with reduced costs, rapid deployments, low or no setup costs, vendor guaranteed support and service level commitments, these financial benefits have led to an increasing number of firms switching one or more of their solutions on the cloud.

HOSTED TELEPHONY in the CLOUD

With hosted telephony, the corporate phone system is in the service provider’s data center rather than in the corporate data center. Telephone System in the Cloud, commonly referred to as “Hosted PBX,” hosted telephony is making it less necessary for corporate IT departments to house, manage, and otherwise handle enterprise phone equipment and systems. The main benefit; the service provider owns and operates the equipment and software. The customer company simply pays a predictable monthly fee, typically per user or per extension.

BUSINESS CONTINUITY & DISASTER RECOVERY

Business continuity management and contingency planning are of course essential and unavoidable tasks. However, the creation of a sound continuity and contingency plan is a complex undertaking, involving a number of stages and discrete activities. The experts at nQuery Technology are trained to consider all of the steps of a solid BC/DR plan and to work with the industries best providers of products and services. Whether you are entirely new to business continuity management, or whether you have a published and established contingency plan already in place, we are certain that we can offer significant value.

DATA STORAGE

Although many enterprises are moving applications and other processes to the cloud, data backups and storage are still often local. On-site storage seems easier to control and secure, yet it’s costly to administer and leaves organizations vulnerable should a natural disaster hit.

Moreover, bottlenecks often form at the local level, especially when integrating remote applications and assets with those managed on-site. Most organizations with a cloud presence have an eye toward using the cloud for data storage. But with a variety of cloud storage vendors to choose from, it’s important to work with the telecom experts at nQuery Technology to get through the details and proper implementation.

In general, cloud services customers do not own the physical infrastructure, instead avoiding capital expenditure by renting usage from a third-party provider. They consume resources as a service and pay only for resources that they use. Many cloud-services offerings employ the utility computing model, which is analogous to how traditional utility services (such as electricity) are consumed, whereas others bill on a subscription basis. Sharing “perishable and intangible” business resources among multiple clients can improve utilization rates, as servers are not unnecessarily left idle (which can reduce costs significantly while increasing the speed of application development).
