[MUSIC PLAYING] Jeff Lauria, vice president of technology here at iCorps Technologies Today, I'd like to talk about private data centers hosted solutions versus public cloud infrastructure

A lot of organizations, over the years, have taken their infrastructure and put them into private data centers, either at data centers that they control, or data centers that are hosted What that basically means is that the servers and the compute power that you would have typically in your office have been shifted to a third-party vendor The third-party vendor is responsible for maintaining backups, for example, server infrastructure, support But what we've noticed over the years, over the past few years, is that these vendors have not been scaling appropriately As a matter of fact, as the public cloud infrastructure has taken hold, has matured, these vendors offerings have decreased, along with support and performance

A lot of clients we speak to here at iCorps are concerned about how do they get from their private data center to another solution, typically, a public cloud solution offered by either Microsoft, and the Azure platform, or any other public cloud provider, and why they should move We typically hear the same three or four things My current hosting provider can't support me They take too long to get back to me Or I'm having performance-related issues

Its system seems slow The system is down So we hear these constantly For those folks, our recommendation is really to take a look at the public cloud Take a look into Azure, for example

Azure is a very dynamic platform It can scale up and scale down as needed Automatically in some cases, Office 365 as well is a very dynamic secure platform for your messaging system You pay for what you use As employees increase, you buy more licensing

As they decrease, you offset some of those licensing Now the challenge here is, everyone is concerned about, I feel trapped, I can't get out of this data center, my business is there, it's going to be painful, it's going to be disruptive In most cases, it's not at all In most cases, it can be very transparent to your user community Moving email is a matter of just moving it from one place to another

File servers literally moving it from one provider to another Same thing with Sequel and so forth There are really three ways to move data from one place to another We can do a lift and shift model However, be aware that in most cases with hosting providers, you don't own the software licensing

So you will need to buy new licensing In that case, we migrate the data That is the second option, to migrate from one place to another Third option available to you is to split or come up with a hybrid system where we're migrating some data to one provider, and we're migrating another data or other sets of data to another provider A perfect example is email

We'll call Microsoft Exchange will be migrated to Office 365 while your file service, Sequel server, and other applications are migrated to Azure The benefits here are numerous Increased security level A lot of hosting providers are limited in the services in which they can offer Multi-factor authentication

Key in today's environment is to use multi-factor authentication Conditional access, meaning I will grant access if you meet these conditions UTM firewalls But the most important thing here is that you are in control of your digital assets In the hosting scenario, you don't own the equipment, you don't own the licensing, you only own the data, getting your data back can be very, very difficult

In a public cloud infrastructure, specifically how iCorps' model works, is the client or the tenant in which you sit is yours Just think of it as this, it's your car, we're the drivers Now you have 100% control of that tenant We manage it for you on your behalf, but it's yours So, now you have 100% control of your digital assets unlike the other model

For more information, please reach us here at iCorps Technologies Look forward to speaking to you again [MUSIC PLAYING]
