Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Reston, Virginia - Jan 04, 2017 - Reston, Virginia, January 4, 2017 (Newswire) –
BEI—a managed IT services provider specializing in helping companies leverage the latest technology to boost productivity and fuel innovation and growth, today announced it will be offering a complimentary cloud computing assessment to the Metro DC area small and medium-sized businesses in January. The focus of these free assessments is to identify how cloud-based solutions can help organizations achieve their goals while improving mobility, collaboration, productivity, communication and flexibility. Additionally, BEI will show companies how adopting cloud-based services can save them money on software licenses, server maintenance, system outages and more.
According to Ellen Jennings, CEO at BEI, “Many businesses are conflicted about cloud services, mainly because there’s a misunderstanding of what the cloud is. In general, they know the benefits, but are wary of adopting cloud services because of misinformation about things like security, billing models, reliability or ownership of their data. These assessments will help local businesses understand cloud computing and show them how it can help them be more agile and competitive.”
Cloud computing is a blanket term used to describe Internet-based services that provide shared processing resources and data to computers and other devices on-demand. The advantages of adopting cloud include minimal upfront infrastructure costs, quick and easy deployment, improved manageability, less maintenance and the ability to rapidly adjust resources based on evolving needs.
Cloud services typically fall under one of three general categories:
· Software as a Service (SaaS). Applications are accessible from various devices through either a Web browser or a program interface. Examples include cloud-based office or design software, email, virtual desktop and CRM services.
· Platform as a Service (PaaS). Enables client-produced data or applications to be deployed to a virtual infrastructure. Examples include cloud-based database hosting, Web serving, developer tools and execution runtime.
· Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Enables deployment of processing, storage, network connectivity and other computing resources to a cloud-based platform. Examples include virtual servers and machines, cloud storage, load balancers and off-premise network infrastructure.
The free cloud computing assessment by BEI is available through January 31, 2017. For a small to medium-sized business or non-profit to qualify, they must be within the Metro DC area and looking to adopt cloud services in the next 18 months. Qualifying organizations can sign up for their no-cost assessment online or call 703-528-8300.
