Moving to the Cloud?

The Platform You Might Not Have Considered

by Patrick Renzi | Thursday, May 26, 2016

If you looked out of the window today, you’d probably see a large assortment of clouds. Clouds of all different types, shapes, and sizes. There are cirrus clouds, cumulus clouds, public clouds, and hybrid clouds; but do you see your cloud? Is it light, fast moving, and flexible? Is it dark, erratic, and unpredictable? Chances are you don’t know yet, and there is nothing wrong with this sentiment. You manage IT in a very real business, with very real concerns. But with the proper plan in place, you can ensure that utilizing the hyper scalability, flexibility, and efficiency of Microsoft’s Cloud Platform will be as smooth a transition as it can be.

The first question you need to ask yourself is, “What level of adoption is right for your business to start?” Most companies like to start by “dipping their toes in the pool” and this is for good reason. Mission-critical applications and processes are, as the name implies, too important to fail. Failure of these applications would result in huge losses to your business. That’s why I feel it’s best to start small and work up from there. Microsoft’s Office 365 and Azure cloud offer packaged Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) options that are flexible and scalable, with low entry costs and little management/configuration overhead required. SaaS and PaaS services can be enabled as soon as they are needed and are available to be consumed shortly after.

Time to Grow Your Desktop as a Service?

See If It Makes Sense for Your Organization

by Karl Forty | 05.24.16

One of the benefits of a VDI/DaaS for organizations is that data is never saved locally to devices. For mobile devices/laptops that can suddenly turn up missing, information can’t be compromised, because it is only displayed as pixels on a screen. The very nature of remote data/local presentation inherent to VDI/DaaS is especially valuable if there is a failure to a desktop or other device. Because end users can access their virtual desktop from another device, they can be more productive—especially in the architectural and construction field—where mobility can be of significant value.

It’s probably on your to-do list to design a go-forward strategy for your Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) deployment. But it’s probably behind the 103 other things also on that list. At PC Connection, our experts will tell you that IaaS is the true foundation for shifting your infrastructure to a cloud computing platform. So how do you get started on the path to IaaS? Read on to learn more.
