Cloud Doesn’t Have to Be Complicated

Shelley Fraser Tech

Cloud doesn’t have to be complicated.

You have data, you want to scale, you want redundancy and you want reliability.

Gone are the days where data is housed on a server in the back infrastructure room. There is simply too much data …

Think of your own phone.

How any pictures, emails, and videos do you take and share everyday? Now think of the number of apps and IoT connections to your home, office, vehicle. Think of your lifestyle, on the go, mobile and cloud connected to everything that you do.




Now think of your work environment.

How many staff reports, presentations, ledgers, inventory spreadsheets, management schedules, maintenance reports, fleet schedules, multi-time zone, multi-currency, multi-data point environments exist? Infinite amounts and they are processed at light speed with local and/or global connections (and that’s just the tip of the iceberg).




Structured data has moved from a contained ‘gig-like’ environment to an unstructured, growing volume of data now measured in tera-bytes, peta-bytes, and zetta-bytes; data processing at what seems to be the speed of light.

Today’s world of data has changed … and it probably does sound complicated but it doesn’t have to be.
