Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing is a general term for anything that involves delivering hosted services over the internet.

Usual scenario – Local IT company signs you up to host your IT systems in the cloud. They will set you up on a third-party cloud provider (usually located overseas) and then transfer your data up onto that server. There may be even more companies involved, depending on who is offering the best deal at the time.

Here at West OZ IT, we own the Cloud Servers and they are located in a data centre in Perth, so you can be assured that your data is not being sent off-shore. This also means the initial transfer of your server into the cloud is much quicker with less down-time, because we can drive to the data centre and copy your data straight onto our cloud servers, so you don’t have to wait for your data to transfer over the internet to which-ever country is hosting your server.
