Private Cloud, hosted on our state of the art infrastructure

IMSCAD Cloud offer you bespoke private cloud options, built to suit the individual needs of any business, ensuring ultimate performance for all users. Private cloud solutions enable customers to take the same approach they would if they were investing in their own hardware. With a private cloud solution, the infrastructure is provisioned to suit the individual customer use case, depending on the application mix, the number of users and any other factors that will determine the best solution for each customer.

A Private Hosted Cloud Solution can offer the same per user, per month cost model as that of a public cloud solution, whilst ensuring a tailor-made solution for your business making sure there is no under or over provisioning, keeping the costs to a minimum.


Desktop Disaster Recovery Solutions

What if you lose your on-premise environment in the event of a disaster? Don’t risk any downtime impacting negatively on staff productivity, projects not getting finished or your brand being tarnished.

The days of having an expensive offsite replication on physical hardware are gone. By having a “pilot light” environment, in the cloud you can keep Capex, (Capital Expenditure) to a minimum. We offer a favorable pay as you go option for hosting Virtual desktops, meaning the only recurring expenditure, is for the infrastructure and storage.

Once built, the infrastructure remains always on, the desktops sit dormant, ready to burst and scale up as required in the event of an outage. IMSCAD Cloud build and maintain the infrastructure, exclusively, for you the customer and provide yearly DR scenario tests, you can sign the solution off as fully functioning for complete peace of mind. Billing for the infrastructure will be on a monthly basis, until such time as the Disaster Recovery solution is invoked. At this time, you will be billed on a pay as you go basis for the desktops.

The cloud explained

In just over a decade the requirement for companies to build, manage & support there IT infrastructure has dramatically changed, as a wise man recently commented; why would I build a power-station when all I require is electricity!

The term “cloud computing” is everywhere, but what does it mean? In the simplest of terms, cloud computing is storing and accessing data and software programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive.

Cloud computing gives you the ability to use compute resources without the need to purchase and maintain physical servers. Cloud solutions can enable IT transformations for organisations to facilitate mobile work styles for individuals while retaining the robust security and control that enterprise IT and business demands. For ease of explanation the cloud can be defined in three distinct categories.

Also known as Enterprise cloud resides on your intranet or within your hosted data centre, ultimately all management, maintenance and updating of hardware is your responsibility, servers will need to be replaced over time, this can prove expensive.

On the plus side you are not restricted by the set infrastructure a public cloud offers, you can provision the infrastructure to meet the requirements of your users.

In this instance, you are not responsible for any of the management of the infrastructure, your data is stored in the cloud provider’s data centre and they manage the environment. This is appealing as it reduces lead times in testing and deployment and is billed on a per use basis.

The draw backs are that you get what you are given in terms of resource which can lead to certain users being under provisioned.

Hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment that uses a mix of on-premises, private cloud and third-party, public cloud services, the two environments are configured to work together. This can give the best

of both worlds but does require more work and infrastructure and can become very expensive.
