Is a Hybrid Cloud What Your Business Needs?

As technology moves forward and the world grows more connected, there is a growing interest in businesses to move their operations to the cloud. Hybrid cloud, featuring a combination of public and private architectures, blends the best of both worlds, making it an attractive option.

With a hybrid solution provided by BMIT, you’ll almost never have to worry about downtime – we guarantee operations at the highest level. Flexibility in data access is another advantage, allowing you to share necessary data in a form available to everyone on all devices, while your more secure data is kept on a private server in our data center.

However, with the increase in popularity, there is a similar increase in concerns. Let’s figure out why you shouldn’t be worried.

Costs

It may seem at first that using a cloud is expensive, but this is where the cloud’s scalability really shines. Instead of stocking up on power for future uses, you can choose the exact amount that fits your current requirements. Upgrading is always an option, but you won’t be paying extra until you need it.

You should also keep in mind that having a server on your own premises isn’t exactly cheap either - expenses don’t end at the purchase. Costs for cooling and power purposes can rack up to 100 euros or more per month just for one server, without maintenance and support taken into account. However, with private servers kept at BMIT, we can optimize the management, meaning fewer expenses for you.

Security

Keeping your data safe is crucial, and you can sleep soundly with the largest cloud providers out there. The data itself is encrypted according to the latest standards, and the servers are heavily guarded. Businesses all around the globe trust companies like Amazon and Microsoft, so you can be sure your data is in the right hands.

New Network Design

Expanding your IT capabilities to the cloud may seem like a daunting task. Both the private and public sectors have to be managed, different types of data need different security requirements, as well as other factors. But this is where we come in and make the transition easy, so you can focus on what’s important – your business.

Of course, a change in your IT infrastructure isn’t a decision one makes out the blue. If you still feel like hybrid isn’t the way for your company to go, or you have any further questions, we’re more than happy to help you out. You can contact us or read more about our cloud services here.
