Outsourcing services is a godsend for small and medium business (SMB) owners. It not only allows them to focus on their core business processes but also helps them save money.
With Technology Visionaries LLC’s managed IT services, you can focus on growing your NJ business while we provide proactive tech support and tailor-made IT solutions. Moreover, we recommend that SMBs invest in cloud computing services to enhance their experience.
What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing services allow you to do away with physical servers, on-site networks, software licenses, and other tech-related expenses. It lowers overhead costs as you no longer need to keep a full IT support crew. It makes it possible for you to run your business from anywhere in the world — as long you have an Internet connection, that is.
You can even run your entire operation from an all-cloud IT infrastructure!
Software as a Service
Software as a Service (SaaS) is one of the most commonly used cloud computing service models. Google mail, Yahoo! Mail, Google Apps, Dropbox — these familiar apps are all examples of SaaS.
SaaS providers use the Internet to deliver applications to its users. Most SMBs, especially those that deal in e-commerce, use SaaS for convenient data storage and email services.
Startups or small businesses that need to get up and running as quickly as possible benefit the most from SaaS. The variety of SaaS applications make it fit seamlessly into nearly any type of small business system. Whether you deal with retail, the food industry, or finance, there is a SaaS application that can boost your efficiency.
Platform as a Service
Platform as a Service (PaaS) is similar to SaaS, but instead of providing software or applications, it provides a framework or platform where you can develop and deploy apps or services.
PaaS is perfect for startup developers and IT-based SMBs. It makes collaboration between you and your employees, as well as business partners, easy. It also allows multiple users to access and work on a project at the same time. Moreover, PaaS applications offer tools that reduce coding and boosts app development. This helps expedite the testing stage and facilitate faster app deployment.
Infrastructure as a Service
Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is one of the building blocks of cloud services and the most flexible option of the three models.
IaaS is highly scalable and offers businesses full control their own cloud-based IT infrastructure, which comes in handy for fast-growing SMBs. E-commerce and online service providers, and other SMBs that require large data storage benefit greatly from IaaS.
Rather than buying physical hardware and managing your own IT infrastructure, you outsource your equipment. You receive a “virtual data center” and maintain direct access to your virtual servers through an application programming interface without needing to maintain it yourself.
Technology Visionaries provides scalable and affordable cloud computing services such as those discussed for SMBs. Our cloud computing services can be tailored to your company’s unique needs to boost your productivity and efficiency.
