Cloud has become a common expression, used to cover a wide range of IT solutions. Cloud is not always equal to cloud, there are many additional services that can make the difference. We'll see two different approaches in this article.
Basic Cloud solutions are rented as big box solutions with large toolboxes not often as easy to use as it seems. Basic cloud will require a lot of time for configuration, OS updates, Software upgrades, maintenance, finetuning, ... Badly configured, it could conduct your employees to no longer be able to work. Cost attractive, Basic cloud solutions can quickly become a source of wasted time and money.
Managed Cloud solutions offer another approach. The "Cloud Boxes" are now combined with a fully integrated pack of services. Cloud experts will have the responsibility to manage your cloud solutions. They know their job and will help you to free some time so you can focus back on your core business.
