The Cloud Is Good.

A Managed Cloud Is Better.


“What kind of cloud?”      “Whose cloud?”

     “Is the cloud secure?”     

 

As business buzzwords go, you’d have to work hard to beat “Cloud” for the speed with which it catapulted to the front of the conversation.  Executives who couldn’t tell the difference between a network server and a restaurant server were suddenly clamoring to move their IT environment to the cloud, even as many struggled to explain why. To this day we meet business owners who don’t know whether their data resides in a public or private cloud. Evidently, the marketing worked.

The reality is most adopters of cloud technologies end up with a hybrid solution, leveraging both on-premise and cloud-based solutions. Then they quickly realize that whether those systems are in-house, in the cloud, or both, they still need those systems to be managed, so they can focus on their business.

Early to the cloud... 

As an early adopter of cloud services, SLPowers built its own private virtual data center solution called Guaranteed Networks® on Demand, or GNoD. 

GNoD empowers you to take advantage of the very best cloud platforms and technologies available. We have clients who rely on GNoD for their entire computing experience. They own keyboards and monitors, but all their applications, and all their computing resources, derive from our cloud. We have other clients who leverage Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services where applicable, and use local resources for their proprietary apps. We have clients who run their business critical apps in clouds run by their software manufacturers, and rely on GNoD for everything else.

The flexible architecture of our Guaranteed Networks® platform allows us to partner with a number of cloud service providers allowing us to combine and leverage best-of-breed public, private and hybrid cloud solutions for our clients. This allows us to custom craft solutions that address your business challenges while avoiding the usual pitfalls of entering into the cloud.

Someone still has to manage it…

Whether you need a completely outsourced solution, or prefer to strategically contract out pieces of your IT environment to our cloud specialists, the SLPowers engineers that manage Guaranteed Networks® on Demand will make sure it all works, and all works together.
