In IT terms, “cloud” services refer to off-site infrastructure used to remotely store data, provide compute power, operate systems and diagnose points of failure in a secure and reliable environment. Being a relatively new field, Alura is well-prepared to bring you into the nextgeneration. With thousands of Cloud providers, Alura carefully selects only the most reliable and secure solutions so those elements are not sacrificed. We have a comprehensive and complete understanding of cloud services utilizing a plethora of technology of different brands and levels.
Cloud services have become indispensible in the modern economy. Having efficient office operations – whether that entails cloud backups of all of your data, or storing your entire environment in the Cloud, can save your business after an unfortunate event. Disaster recovery and protection along with preventative maintenance are valuable investments for any small to medium business.
Please Don’t Be a Statistic
Recently, the US National Archives & Records Administration released a statistic revealing that 93% of companies that lose access to their data for 10 days or more (due to disaster, employee error, etc.) file for bankruptcy within one year, and 50% of those businesses filed for bankruptcy immediately. This is just a statistic and we are not trying to sell cloud services through fear. However, through risk assessment it’s plain to see that having a backup plan in case of something going wrong is integral in this day and age, where almost everything is stored digitally.
We offer a wide variety of powerful services to our clients for the growing business trend of cloud computing.
Alura provides advanced private cloud solutions including extensive production involving our CloudOne® infrastructure and services.
