Overview

One of the greatest benefits of cloud computing is the agile nature of its design. Rather than requiring a major infrastructure overhaul that uproots mission-critical systems and applications, a cloud migration can be done in a more incremental, methodical way through proper planning and design.

Cloud applications and environments enable IT to stay efficient in their management, development and operations. Not only does this flexibility and access free up local resources, but it also allows enterprises to scale and respond to rapidly shifting market demands. Whether clients leverage a private, public or hybrid cloud, NEF can provide advisement and services to ensure the infrastructure meets the true needs of the end user.

As you consider deploying cloud infrastructure, applications and services, talk with NEF about cloud and supporting connectivity networks.

All Services

Public Cloud

Household names like Amazon Web Service, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud can be great options for cloud services, but there are several other viable provider options that deliver scalable, flexible cloud environments and affordable services. From business applications to hosting and development to storage and archiving, leveraging the public cloud offers several advantages to today’s enterprise.

Private Cloud

Private clouds deliver the benefits of public cloud services but layer the added security and control of a proprietary architecture. Private cloud infrastructure can be designed and managed to fit the needs of the business and deliver all the advantages cloud has to offer.

Hybrid Cloud

The cloud enables a new level of scalability and flexibility in IT environments. Understanding how the cloud can benefit an enterprise based on specific business objectives requires in-depth knowledge of cloud infrastructure from concept and planning to design.

Cloud Connectivity

Shifting to the cloud is a major focus for many enterprise IT teams, and the connectivity component is an important consideration. Learn more about the cloud connectivity options that best align budgetary and network requirements.

Connecting to the Cloud

The IT landscape has become more agile and many teams are considering more strategic and user-focused cloud infrastructures. Because there is no one-size-fits-all solution for cloud connectivity, starting with a list of business and, most importantly, end-user requirements is essential for harnessing the potential of the cloud.

In “Connecting to the Cloud”, you’ll explore the end-user trends driving enterprises to the cloud, what connectivity options are at their disposal and the steps that go into a smart, user-focused connectivity investment.
