Reliable Cloud Computing Services – Secure Infrastructure Service and Mobility
When a business doesn’t have its own information technology department, then the best option for them is to take services of cloud computing infrastructure. This infrastructure can be used for storage of data and information. Providing cloud computing services is an advanced IT business, where the provider of these services also offers applications that offer the feature of data recovery and backup. Therefore, relying on a third-party IT service provider is the best option for any business that lacks its own IT infrastructure.
Class of Service (CoS):
When there are multiple traffic profiles that are needed to be handled in a cloud service, then the best way out is to prioritize the traffic according to its type. This managing of multiple traffic profiles is called Class of Service or CoS. For example, priority of voice traffic can be given a higher priority over http traffic or email traffic. The service providers offer CoS under the realm of Multi-Protocol Label Switching offering. However, you must know that you don’t get bandwidth guarantee with CoS and the delivery time you get is based on best effort basis.
Quality of Service (QoS):
QoS is a way of guaranteeing in advance to some extent, the measurement and improvement of error rates, transmission rates and other characteristics of the cloud network. Transmitting content like multimedia information and high-bandwidth video, is difficult in public networks when best effort protocols are used, and thus QoS is important for the transmission of these kinds of data. Several traffic shaping techniques are used for improving the QoS, these techniques include application classification, queuing at congestion points, and packet prioritization. Packets that pass through a gateway host are expedited on the basis of reservation and policy criteria, which is arranged in advance, with the use of Internet’s Resource Reservation Protocol.
Scalable, Flexible and Reliable Cloud-Aware Network:
Due to the implementation of cloud-aware network, you get many benefits from cloud computing services. First benefit is the scalability, which means that no matter how large or small your data storage needs are you get best quality service, consistently on long usage. Cloud-aware makes sure that the flexibility of operations are paramount and thus you are able to switch between various services and applications without any problem. The third and most important benefit of cloud-aware network is its reliability, which makes sure that your data and information is fully secure and accessible 24 hours a day for 365 days of the year.
Private Network Access and Seamless Connectivity:
Due to the private network access you get the needed privacy, thus making sure that your data is safe from any theft or unauthorized use. Additionally, the seamless connectivity makes sure that you get fast connection with zero-latency and you can enjoy the benefits of mobile cloud computing if you want.
Seamless connectivity means zero unwanted disconnection, which further improves security of your data during the time you upload or access it. Therefore, you can fully rely on cloud computing services for your data storage. Cloud computing services is a highly advanced field in information technologies as its proper working needs the implementation of various services, simultaneously.
