What is the Cloud?
By virtualising your servers, cloud simply enables you to access your IT resources over the internet, eliminating hardware headaches without compromising on performance. Cloud can help public sector organisations become more agile, efficient and connected by delivering a flexible, scalable and secure alternative to physical hardware.
The Benefits of Cloud
When your Public Sector organisation needs to do more with less, cloud puts you back in control. Streamline the way technology is used, effectively share resources and improve operational productivity with a virtualised environment built for performance and scalability.
The elastic nature of the cloud means you can adjust resources to meet your organisation's immediate needs, without being constrained to the limits of physical hardware. Your burstable cloud gives limitless potential to quickly scale up or down to meet demand, without compromising on performance.
Through significantly reduced hardware, software and upgrade costs, cloud computing offers a cost-effective solution to increased pressure on IT budgets. The truly flexible, virtual environment provides the power to eliminate hardware wastage by using as much as you need, when you need it.
Remove the barriers of offline communication to enable greater collaboration across and outside of departmental boundaries. The cloud's accessible yet highly secure online environment enables you to centralise information for better access, enhanced training and faster communication.
