Cloud Deployment Partner
Transforming your business to include a cloud strategy is no longer a question of
“if," but “when” and “how soon”. As Cloud deployment partners, Reliance Infosystems
supports their customer’s business growth by reducing costs and driving innovations
in an effort to build a strategic advantage. Reliance Infosystems deploys Office365,
Windows Intune, Windows Azure Cloud solutions to enable our clients cut cost on
technology infrastructure, Streamline processes, Increase Collaboration, Improve
accessibility, flexibility and availability and also give you rest of mind. With
Microsoft cloud solutions, businesses can reduce total costs and transition from
a fixed cost structure to a variable one while freeing up critical IT resources
for strategic initiatives and innovation.
As cloud deployment partners, we co-exist the client’s current system for a seamless
transition to the cloud. We are able to co-exist traditional messaging systems with
Microsoft Office 365 Exchange Online and migrate all users to the cloud successfully
before decommissioning the old messaging system. We are also able to virtualize
the client’s on premise infrastructure and provide high availability and business
continuity solutions by replicating the on premise resources to the cloud.
With Microsoft Cloud Solution services, businesses can boast of availability of
service to the end-users 99.9% and IT services can grow or shrink as business requirements
change, without requiring long implementation times or aggressive capital investment.
The advantages of adopting cloud solutions
Cost Efficiency - By leveraging cloud’s capabilities, companies can save on licensing fees and at
the same time eliminate overhead charges such as the cost of data storage, software
updates, management etc. The cloud is in general available at much cheaper rates
than traditional approaches and can significantly lower the overall IT expenses.
At the same time, convenient and scalable charging models have emerged (such as
one-time-payment and pay-as-you-go), making the cloud even more attractive. If you
want to get more technical and analytical, cloud solutions delivers a better cash
flow by eliminating the capital expense associated with developing and maintaining
the server infrastructure.
Increased Storage Capacity - The cloud can accommodate and store much more
data compared to a physical Server and in a way offers almost unlimited storage
capacity. It eliminates worries about running out of storage space and at the same
time it spares businesses the need to upgrade their computer hardware, further reducing
the overall IT cost.
Convenience and continuous availability – Microsoft Public clouds
offer services that are available wherever the end user might be located. This approach
enables easy access to information and accommodates the needs of users in different
time zones and geographic locations. As a side benefit, collaboration booms since
it is now easier than ever to access, view and modify shared documents and files.
Moreover, service uptime is in most cases guaranteed, providing in that way continuous
availability of resources. Microsoft typically use multiple servers for maximum
Backup and Recovery - The process of backing up and recovering
data is simplified since those now reside on the cloud and not on a physical device.
Microsoft Cloud Solutions offer reliable and flexible backup/recovery solutions.
In some cases, the cloud itself is used solely as a backup repository of the data
located in local computers.
Cloud is environmentally friendly - The cloud is in general more
efficient than the typical IT infrastructure and it takes fewer resources to compute,
thus saving energy. For example, when servers are not used, the infrastructure normally
scales down, freeing up resources and consuming less power. At any moment, only
the resources that are truly needed are consumed by the system.
Scalability and Performance - Scalability is a built-in feature
for cloud deployments. Cloud instances are deployed automatically only when needed
and as a result, you pay only for the applications and data storage you need. Hand
in hand, also comes elasticity, since clouds can be scaled to meet your changing
IT system demands. Regarding performance, the systems utilize distributed architectures
which offer excellent speed of computations. Instances can be added instantly for
improved performance and customers have access to the total resources of the cloud’s
core hardware via their dashboards.
Resiliency and Redundancy - Microsoft cloud deployment is usually
built on a robust architecture thus providing resiliency and redundancy to its users.
The cloud offers automatic failover between hardware platforms out of the box, while
disaster recovery services are also often included.
Quick deployment and ease of integration - A cloud system can be
up and running in a very short period, making quick deployment a key benefit. On
the same aspect, the introduction of a new user in the system happens instantaneously,
eliminating waiting periods. Furthermore, software integration occurs automatically
and organically in cloud installations. A business is allowed to choose the services
and applications that best suit their preferences, while there is minimum effort
in customizing and integrating those applications.
Device Diversity and Location Independence – Microsoft Cloud Solutions
services can be accessed via a plethora of electronic devices that are able to have
access to the internet. These devices include not only the traditional PCs, but
also smartphones, tablets etc. With the cloud, the “Bring your own device” (BYOD)
policy can be easily adopted, permitting employees to bring personally owned mobile
devices to their workplace. An end-user might decide not only which device to use,
but also where to access the service from. There is no limitation of place and medium.
We can access our applications and data anywhere in the world, making this method
very attractive to people.
The solution today is the CLOUD and the flexibility of the cloud makes it appropriate
in all scenarios, and empowers companies to apply it in any manner they see fit.
Simply put “your business is not reaching its full potential unless it has taken
advantage of the many benefits Microsoft cloud solutions has to offer”.
