Public and private data storage environments

Public and Private Cloud Based Services For Your Business Needs

With cloud hosting platforms, businesses no longer need to purchase, house and maintain servers and expensive on premise hardware. Impact’s certified experts will help you evaluate the best cloud application, whether it be public, private or a hybrid cloud solution, based on your specific business goals and technology needs.

The public cloud can be a cost-effective way to deploy desktop virtualization services that scale. When utilizing a public cloud computing solution, the organization is not responsible for maintaining or managing the data center. This is all done by the cloud provider, freeing up time and resources of the IT team.

The private cloud is a dedicated virtual IT environment maintained solely by one organization. Depending on the resources that the organization needs, private cloud computing solutions can offer additional flexibility, security and scalability for organizations who need more control over their environment, such as independent network, Active Directory and firewall, encryption of data at rest and more.

Benefits of Cloud Computing

Cloud hosting platforms allow companies to reduce their overall IT spend by leveraging the uses of cloud computing:

cloud environment Flexibility – Implement a fully-customized cloud environment at a fixed cost

Remote Access Remote Access – Improve employee productivity with remote access to documents and communication tools

Restrict permissions Security – Restrict permissions and maintain proactive monitoring of what goes into and out of the cloud

Compliance Compliance – Stay compliant with HIPAA, PCI, FINRA, SOX and other requirements

Growth Growth – Scale your infrastructure as the business grows and changes

Backup and Recovery Backup and Recovery – Bring your business back to full capacity with redundant backups in multiple locations
