We help you understand the opportunities in cloud computing and how to make the most of them.

Cloud computing

In a Nutshell

Cloud computing is offering tremendous opportunities for small to medium businesses. Costly infrastructure, sophisticated software and powerful applications are no longer the exclusive rights of large enterprises. More and more businesses recognise the reality that while they need to use technology, they don’t need to own it.

There has been a shift from on premise or dedicated physical servers and local client applications to cloud services. At Switch MSP, we believe the future or at least the next 10 years of IT is in the cloud, apart from some specifics of your IT needs. This means that it is important to understand the benefits and the risks this opportunity presents, and then make the most of it. Embracing the cloud and building your IT infrastructure here requires a different strategy. Instead of focusing on the configuration, reliability and service availability of physical equipment , we need to focus on SLA’s with a range of application providers and connectivity availability.

Cloud computing offers the benefits of higher level of service, security, reliability and value that traditional on premise solutions cannot equal. OrbitCloud™ is Switch MSP’s cloud consultancy service that has been in development since 2009. We have knowledge and expertise in both virtualisation platforms, Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware, and can help you identify your needs, formulate the strategy and discover the best path to transform your existing IT platform to a cloud centric one.
