Public Cloud Services

What is Cloud Computing ?

Rather than owning their own computing infrastructure or data centers, companies can rent access to anything from applications to storage from a cloud service provider.

One benefit of using cloud computing services is that firms can avoid the upfront cost and complexity of owning and maintaining their own IT infrastructure, and instead simply pay for what they use, when they use it.

In turn, providers of cloud computing services can benefit from significant economies of scale by delivering the same services to a wide range of customers.

How Important is Cloud ?

Building the infrastructure to support cloud computing now accounts for more than a third of all IT spending worldwide, according to research from IDC. Meanwhile spending on traditional, in-house IT continues to slide as computing workloads continue to move to the cloud, whether that is public cloud services offered by vendors or private clouds built by enterprises themselves.

451 Research predicts that around one-third of enterprise IT spending will be on hosting and cloud services this year "indicating a growing reliance on external sources of infrastructure, application, management and security services". Analyst Gartner predicts that half of global enterprises using the cloud now will have gone all-in on it by 2021.

How do we help?

The exact benefits will vary according to the type of cloud service being used but, fundamentally, using cloud services means companies not having to buy or maintain their own computing infrastructure. While this is the base value, today in 2020 public clouds are more mature and there has a been a major adoption in the market to deliver more complicated and capable applications.

Therefore, business end up with a spread platform between on premise and multiple clouds (Hybrid cloud) which is relatively complex to deploy and maintain as every platform requires its own sets of skill. 

Our team in Gateway has the right skills with two major cloud platforms ( Microsoft Azure & Amazon AWS ) to help business with their cloud journey. while both platforms have some services in common, you're expectation from the cloud is the main key to pick the right platform (or both).

Azure is Microsoft’s cloud offering. It provides a fantastic set of features and is very business oriented. This is the biggest difference one can see when comparing Azure with other cloud offerings. 

Microsoft understands how businesses work as its products such as Office, Outlook, and Windows have been used in offices all around the world for decades. This understanding of office culture and organizational needs can be seen in how easy it is to use Azure to provide benefits to the organization. One reason that Azure is so exciting is what the future holds for it; with features like IoT and machine learning being built into Azure users can be assured that it will only get better with time. The fact that it is already a powerful system with limitless use cases makes it an easy pick for any company looking to migrate to the cloud.

AWS is designed to allow application providers, ISVs, and vendors to quickly and securely host your applications – whether an existing application or a new SaaS-based application. You can use the AWS Management Console or well-documented web services APIs to access AWS’s application hosting platform.

AWS enables you to select the operating system, programming language, web application platform, database, and other services you need. With AWS, you receive a virtual environment that lets you load the software and services your application requires. This eases the migration process for existing applications while preserving options for building new solutions
