Can Your Organization Take Advantage of a Private Cloud?

Can Your Organization Take Advantage of a Private Cloud?

If your business isn’t already taking advantage of the cloud in some way, you’re in the minority. Most businesses use it for something or another, depending on the industry and service rendered. Yet, there are all kinds of different cloud-based infrastructures that your organization can take advantage of, which might make the decision somewhat challenging to make. What’s the best type of cloud solution for your business?


You’ll generally be choosing between the public cloud, the private cloud, or some combination of the two. Depending on which you choose, you can expect to reap considerable benefits. Here are some of the details regarding your choices.

Public Cloud
There are certain reasons why a small business might find the public cloud ideal. Most organizations that don’t have a dedicated IT department will see a cloud solution as more additional management and maintenance that they don’t have time for. This is one of the aspects that makes the public cloud so appealing to small businesses with limited time, budgets, and workforces. The public cloud removes the responsibility of managing a cloud from your business’ shoulders while maintaining an acceptable level of security.

Businesses that take advantage of the public cloud, however, do have some reservations about the control of their data--primarily because the public cloud is generally hosted and maintained by the service provider. While this is great from an operational standpoint, it limits your ability to respond to security threats. Therefore, you must be aware of what customization options are available before making a decision regarding the public cloud.

Private Cloud
In direct contrast to the public cloud, a private cloud is hosted on your company’s in-house infrastructure, which allows for more flexibility and customization on your company’s part. You can essentially customize your cloud solution as per your requirements. Companies that have their technology maintained by an in-house team generally prefer a private cloud solution, but sometimes it’s not necessarily an option.

Companies that don’t have an internal IT department and still take advantage of a private cloud solution might wind up stretching their own resources too far. If you can’t properly take care of your technology, then perhaps a managed cloud is a better approach for your particular business. For those who want the best of both the public and private clouds, a managed private cloud is the ideal solution.

Managed Private Cloud
Small businesses that want the benefits of a private cloud solution while avoiding the heavy lifting of maintaining the server hardware should look into a managed private cloud. Infradapt can use our comprehensive knowledge of managed IT solutions and cloud infrastructures to build you an on-premise cloud solution that we can remotely monitor and maintain. If you want even less to worry about, we can host your server on our own network so that it’s as hands-off as you can get.

Managed IT Makes Your Business More Resilient and Efficient

Managed IT Makes Your Business More Resilient and Efficient

Technology is necessary for so many businesses, but some don’t know how best to approach managing it. This is particularly difficult for businesses that have limited budgets and workforces, which leads organizations to simply go without the support in favor of saving some cash. Of course, when something goes wrong, it’s more noticeable and could cause major troubles in the future. This break-fix IT is far from the best way to approach IT maintenance, but how can you make sure your budget doesn’t suffer from it?


The primary reason why break-fix IT is such an issue for SMBs is mostly because they don’t have the freedom that a larger enterprise might have in their budget. This means that they don’t necessarily have funds put away to onboard a team of technicians, and that employees often have to deal with their own IT maintenance in addition to their normal responsibilities. If they have support for their technology troubles, it’s generally done through a break-fix provider who only administers their technology assistance when it’s too late to prevent problems. Either way, your organization is in a tough position.

IT Support is Important for Your Entire Organization
Contrary to popular belief, poor IT administration isn’t just a localized effect on the employee who can’t access their email or navigate their network storage. When one employee can’t do these things, they fall behind. What happens if they are part of a critical project management crew that’s on a deadline? Even more trying is when an employee finds malicious messages in their inbox and the entire organization is threatened by a data breach. Issues like these aren’t difficult to prevent, but if you aren’t proactive about it, prepare for your budget to be punished.

Long story short, if one employee can’t do their job properly, everyone else who relies on them will also be held up. This chain reaction can create incredible downtime which can cripple your organization in both the short term and long term. Eventually, it could become so bad that it’s difficult to recover, making it ideal to simply prevent problems from happening in the first place.

How Managed IT Helps
Preventative measures can ensure your technology doesn’t experience issues in the first place, which can be a significant first step toward preserving your organization. Break-fix measures will only resolve the current problem, not take steps toward preventing them in the future. Managed IT--outsourced technical expertise offered by Infradapt--can allow your business to function as if it had an in-house IT department without adding new salaries to your budget. All you have to consider is a predictable monthly payment, which is something that break-fix IT can never provide.

Through the power of remote technology, we can monitor your infrastructure and address problems that need to be handled promptly, before they have any effect on your operations. This lets yourself and your employees focus on keeping your business running efficiently.
