Islanda is defining Infrastructure as a Service for Cloud Computing. Based on over thirty years of experience in developing new media and Internet based IT services Islanda has proven the power of hosted, virtualized information processing as a replacement for hardware computers in small and medium businesses. While everyone has identified the inevitable dominance of cloud computing services at some point in the future, Islanda has designed a virtualized solution providing the power of full virtual infrastructure and small virtual data centers that will be the catalyst for acceptance of the full range of Cloud Services today, tomorrow and in the coming years.
The Virtual Data Center – The first step is implementing complete Cloud Computing. The Virtual Data Center is virtualized servers and virtualized workstations together replacing all computing hardware for the business. This provides clearly identifiable cost savings, improved efficiency, improved security, and the elimination of legacy problems stemming from years of little or no information policy management.
Total Cloud Security – Constant industry and popular media discussion often confuses the levels of Cloud Service and constantly repeats the mantra of Cloud security problems. Cyber security is critical for business but made more serious by ignorance. The early stage of Cloud Services evolving from search engine and free social collaboration were designed for convenience and not security. This reality creates a legitimate concern for information stored and processed in the Cloud. The answer is to build managed Cloud services modeled on enterprise IT tools and policies with proven data center security extended to every client IT device. Islanda extends or builds a full Directory system (LDAP) for each Islanda Cloud Client. Best of breed IT policies are recommended and implemented and all Internet traffic is encrypted and secure for Total Cloud Security.
Local Cloud Support – While the Internet is planet wide there are very important reasons to maintain Infrastructure as a Service as a local or regional service. Security and support are critical to the success of this as a Total Cloud Service. IaaS is an outsourcing service providing enterprise class Information Technology to small and medium businesses. The power, value, and economies of hardware virtualization work best at this level. Islanda has proven that with over 150 virtual machines managed for our clients. To build confidence the Cloud Must Be Local.
Private Cloud Gateway – The Internet is planet wide and the rapid growth of Cloud Services is the ultimate convergence of media, information, and processing power. Tremendous economies are becoming available through integration of Internet based services for social media, communication, public relations, sales, and collaboration. But security is a big question and how to select and implement is an even bigger question even for larger organizations. As a Private Cloud Gateway Islanda provides the best of selected Cloud Services for Islanda Cloud Clients. Optional Cloud Services include Websense for secure web and email filtering, specialized file backup and offsite storage/archiving, Microsoft Office and Business software all provided as inexpensive on-demand services. In development are fully integrated Office Communications based on VOIP with Cloud PBX and secure integration from the private cloud to the public cloud for added server and processing power worldwide. Public Cloud Services need a Gateway for security and management.
Islanda Cloud Computing is not just hardware replacement but the secure gateway to the new world of Cloud Services for businesses large and small. This is the road to full Cloud Services. Check them out on the above left.
