The Cloud. Those words can evoke excitement or dismay, depending on the circumstances. At its most basic definition, a cloud environment is one which is scalable and managed through a management interface which allows for self-service delivery, charge-back to users, reporting, and security features. It can be on-premises, housed at a data center far away, or a hybrid model in which some applications are kept on-prem and others are cloud-based. The latter option is the most common; often increased bandwidth costs outweigh the perceived savings of remotely managed infrastructure.
DMD Data Systems offers a variety of public and on-premises options for cloud, and software and services which can make your on-prem cloud function like a public cloud.
