Centralize Management of IT

Background of the Cloud

Unify your organization’s approach to technology. A complete approach to technology includes proactive services, understanding people, and a superpowered helpdesk. We will: Identify and define current IT problems. Consider multiple perspectives. Review them through the lens of organizational goals. Provide recommendations accordingly. Evaluate recommendations from a budget-based timeline. Implement the recommendations according to timeline.

When it comes to the management of your IT infrastructure, traditionally, the business is responsible for managing all the hardware and software the organization uses. With this structure, businesses utilize their own servers at their location (on-premise) and are solely responsible for adding, changing, or removing resources as needed. If your organization’s infrastructure is more traditional, it’s likely that either your organization uses legacy core applications or older technology that cannot be easily migrated to the cloud, or you have not considered the benefits associated with cloud solutions.

Cloud technology services are basically any service that can be offered via the internet. The cloud offers a more simple and cost-effective way to manage your IT infrastructure. Instead of having servers at your facility, you can use the internet to access applications and data stored in our cloud, which is fully managed by Whizkids.

Public, Private and Hybrid Clouds

With Whizkids’ cloud solutions, you can simplify your in-house IT infrastructure, eliminate traditional IT barriers, free up space on servers, and remove network room clutter. We will work with you to determine if a public or private data center would work best based with your organization’s structure and business needs.

There are three different types of cloud networks:

Public: The public cloud makes resources available through the internet. With the public cloud, you can benefit from unlimited scalability (go from 30 to 300 employees quickly) and a huge network of servers which protect you against failures. This option is best for enterprise businesses who scale frequently, or who mostly use web-based applications.

Private: The private cloud makes resources available through the internet as well, however you will benefit from a dedicated environment that is not shared publicly with other organizations, and the ability to customize your cloud environment to fit your business needs. Private cloud is best for businesses with high-security needs (such as sensitive financial or client data), and for cost-conscious businesses who do not have a need for unlimited scalability.

Hybrid: Depending on your structure, you may also benefit from a hybrid solution, which is a combination of private and public cloud.
