Cloud Management Software is a Good Solution for Both Large and Small Businesses
By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor
There are two clear components of Dediserve that make it a successful cloud management software provider. Cloud machines and cloud IT provide the core of services that give users cloud technology to increase productivity, efficiency and even reduce spending.
The Dublin-based cloud hosting operation has reached more than one million customers in the three years since it first launched with the power of OnApp.
OnApp gives Dediserve's customers the cloud management software they need for server and storage management, automatic failover, user management, billing and deployment all of which is done so in the cloud. OnApp is the driving force behind its cloud-based services, including its 2010 purchase of Aventure, a U.K.-based host. This branch of the company is also powered by OnApp.
With a cloud engine capable of delivering an on-demand approach to cloud management software tools, users can expect flexibility. This feature alone tends to attract larger companies because of the continued investment these giants require when improving their infrastructure.
Between the hardware and skilled staffing, costs can be significant and really affect the bottom line. Cloud management software is simple. It is easy to integrate, maintain and gives those larger enterprises the opportunity to gain valuable resources while not breaking the bank.
The cloud machine, however, is a better option for smaller businesses, Web design or even development entities. When making the switch from a traditional on-premise system to the more direct cloud machine with pay-per-use hosting solutions, this just makes more sense.
There's little room for error with its flexible and straightforward approach. A Dediserve director said that this is a more reasonable option for replacing legacy IT systems.
Dediserve gives ultra-fast deployment with automatic failover to allow for future growth. Within minutes, customers are already in the cloud and able to use their new cloud management software. Once up and running, OnApp shows users how to manage and scale resources in the cloud. OnApp allows them to self provision.
When it comes to skilled professionals, the staff at Dediserve is there to offer support while the customer is busy managing their own servers and tasks. The system is so simple to use, even the first time. And the best part is the cloud's ability to heal itself. Remember the days of focusing on the head end to fix whatever was offline? Those days are no more.
Cloud management software solutions through OnApp provide automatic failover so that customers are never without. The cloud powers full control over the system, ensuring IT administrators can make the decisions necessary that best support their business.
