According to the Oxford Dictionary, cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer.
Microsoft state that this offers faster innovation, flexible resources and economies of scale.
Why partner with think S3 in the cloud?
We are trusted by some of the leading names in the industry as a technology partner, including Microsoft, NetApp, Veeam, Barracuda and Citrix.
We’ve been there from the start in the cloud, which means we have the experience to match. We were one of the founding members of the Microsoft CSP Program, and one of only two partners in the UK to receive this honour.
We’ve built cloud business cases and solutions ever since, helping customers harness the most advanced cloud technologies available.
So why use the cloud with think S3?
Engagement & Reach
Leveraging applications, cognitive services and collaborative spaces through the cloud not only skyrockets your existing customer experience, but also attracts more customers and suppliers than ever before.
It’s open and flexible
Whichever cloud you choose, you will be able to utilise a wide selection of operating systems, programming languages, frameworks, tools, databases and devices.
By utilising public cloud you can use the same technologies that millions of developers and IT professionals already rely on and trust with the additional scale and flexibility that the cloud offers.
Having access to the newest collaborative tools can really transform your workforce. Multiple people needing to work on a single document simultaneously? No problem. And if teams are working out of the same project system, all conversations and documents can be stored centrally for streamlined teamwork.
It’s built to protect your data
We know some organisations are still wary of the cloud. That’s why cloud providers make commitments and massive investments to ensure the protection and privacy of your data.
They invest in creating the safest products in the world to keep your most vital asset, your business data, on lockdown. No more crashing servers. No more downtime.
Global Scale and Mobility
The public cloud providers we partner with run on a worldwide network of datacentres – Microsoft Azure is now available across 54 regions and 140 countries, with Amazon Web Services covering 21 geographic regions with 12 more on the way.
Wherever you do business, S3 and our cloud partners have got you covered.
Pay As You Go
Get the freedom that comes from deciding exactly what resources work for you, and scale up and down to meet variable requirements.
What’s more, by using reserved instances you can commit your cloud spending up front – keeping the scale and flexibility of the cloud and saving as much as 72% on pay as you go pricing.
