Transcript of BrickData Presentation

Keeping all your files organized, accessible and backed up requires a server.
Most small businesses buy a small server. The traditional Approach Cloud Computing for
business Small is Expensive a typicall small business server costs $ 5.000 - $ 10.000 including the software, plus Maintenance
Upgrades All this yields a total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of around $ 100.oo per user Small is High - Risk Just One server is a high - risk strategy: Recovery time in event of hardware failure can be several days
"All your eggs in one basket". Small is Inflexible Server stuck in the office, where remote access is difficult and insecure. Small is Less Reliable Low-end servers lack the resilience of the higher-grade models used by big business Redundant disks
Redundant cooling
Redundant power supplies
Whole-server redundancy (clustering)
Failover on networking & Firewalls Enterprise-class systems have ENTER THE CLOUD Little or no CapEx cost
Big, reliable systems
Minimal Maintenance
No disaster recovery worries
Highly flexible access What is the Cloud ? The internet is a network of networks

You don't have to know what goes on in the cloud It's a traditional representation of the internet which can do the jobs used to do ! So what's changed? now the internet contains processing power and storage So..... You can buy software, storage and processing 'as a service '.

You only buy what you use.

you can connect to it from anywhere KEY COMPONENTS Virtualisation Software and Hardware divorced One virtual server can span several physical servers. One physical server can host many virtual servers. High Speed Internet Access to Online Systems fast enough for general office use Mobile Broadband provides acceptable speed everywhere High Speed Internet Access to Online Systems fast enough for general office use Mobile Broadband provides acceptable speed everywhere TIME TO BREAK FREE Freedom of Location Access all your applications - not just your e-mail - from anywhere.

Does it give

Insurance? Full Description of disaster planning

smartphones, tablet computers ? Know your provider ! Get yourself the solution you need.
