What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud Computing allows you to access, store, manage and process information via the internet, in lieu of a standalone application. Through cloud computing, the host provides software applications, servers, infrastructure and other assets as a service, typically accessed over via web browsers.
Why Cloud Computing with Milner Technology Services?
We get it. You’re busy and you don’t have time to mess around with new technology. So you’re asking why you should bother with Milner Technology Services’ cloud services.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a Service allows you to outsource your IT infrastructure, the hardware and software that manage your network. This is a perfect opportunity for small and medium sized businesses to make themselves even more scalable, with the flexibility to add at will or downsize when needed.
- Virtualization of infrastructure components, including servers, desktops and software
- System maintenance, backup and recovery planning
- Automation of administrative tasks
- Dynamic, on-demand scaling to accommodate growth
- Policy-based services
Virtualization divides tangible infrastructure resources, partitioning them into multiple assets. This might be done with servers, desktops and even software applications. Using the server as an example, we would create multiple virtual servers housed in the same physical server box. These servers are then accessed through the cloud.
This virtualization can be done at every level, from virtual servers and infrastructure as a service to remote desktops and hosted applications. Even operating systems can be moved to the cloud.
Cloud services, infrastructure as a service and virtualization are some of the many ways Milner Technology Services can offer your company protection, peace of mind and reduced costs. Contact us for a free network analysis and let us show you how to save money and protect your data.
