Cloud computing, at least as we came to know it during its inception in the late 1990s, has changed significantly. When most people think about “the cloud,” they have a vision of public cloud computing, which encompasses popular services such as Microsoft Office 365, Google’s G Suite for business productivity, and Software-as-a-Service solutions such as Salesforce and the Adobe Creative Cloud. While the enterprise has for the most part welcomed the public cloud, many business owners have voiced concerns about being expected to store and manage information in massive data centers that operate on a shared data basis.
DIFFERENT CLOUD PLATFORM STRATEGIES
Business owners in the High Desert do not have to adopt a public cloud strategy if they prefer not to; in fact, there is a rising preference towards multi-cloud, hybrid and even private platforms. Instead of thinking about the public cloud, business owners should think about the underlying IT architecture that effectively replaced the old client/server model. Cloud computing is more than just public data centers; it can be deployed privately for companies that must practice strict confidentiality as part of their business model or because of compliance.
Hybrid or private clouds can be installed on-premise or at remote data centers. Self-hosted solutions such as SonicCloud offer all the advanced features of public cloud infrastructures, and often at lower prices in some cases. Easy and speedy access to business data is the pillar of enterprise cloud computing, and this is exactly what SonicCloud provides while allowing business owners to be in complete control of their digital assets.
PROVIDING SECURE CLOUD SOLUTIONS TO LOCAL BUSINESSES
Depending on how a company operates, SonicCloud can be configured in ways that mirror digital information compliance requirements such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and the General Data Privacy Rule of the European Union. Data can be accessed and shared from just about anywhere, but it can also be protected by means of file locking, two-factor authentication, automatic virus scanning, and encryption. Synchronization and remote data backups can also be automated to protect against ransomware attacks and to mitigate damage in a disaster recovery scenario.
