Hybrid clouds have a unique advantage over private networks alone in that they offer the scalability to increase computing power when needed.
As private networks are limited in their capacity, deploying a hybrid approach gives you the flexibility to add extra capacity when needed.
As well, adding a public cloud component to your network gives your company the agility that comes with being able to call upon extra resources during spikes in traffic. This results in greater uptime and reliability as the network can be properly optimized at all times.
You’ll improve latency and overall system performance by being able to allocate bandwidth to additional servers when needed while ensuring mission-critical applications remain on the local network.
Another significant benefit of hybrid clouds is the cost savings that come from having access to additional processing power when you need it, without having to invest in additional permanent system architecture.
Most companies operating a private network alone face the daunting task of having to add physical components to their systems to handle extra data loads at a significant cost – not to mention the costs of powering and cooling the hardware.
True North offers a cost effective and scalable pricing model that ensures you only pay for the extra capacity you actually use. You’ll never have to worry about the capital costs associated with acquiring hardware that may end up being under-used.
The Power Of Virtualization
Harness the agility that comes with VMware virtualization. Our VMware-powered hybrid cloud solutions allow you to deploy VMs onto your private network, bringing with it the benefits that come with operating a virtual desktop environment.
As an enterprise-level VMware partner, True North leverages years of expertise to deliver a tailored solution approach to your network challenges.
Some of the benefits that come with a VDI hybrid cloud deployment include:
- Increased productivity from being able to access company networks from anywhere, across all platforms. Employees can gain access to work on hosted servers from home and while on vacation through laptops and mobile devices, not to mention the advantages that come with increased collaboration ability.
- Easy workstation configuration thanks to the flexible nature of the VDI software. IT managers can easily standardize workstations and quickly replicate them whenever new ones are required.
- Simple to manage updates and patches from an IT perspective, since a VDI environment offers a central location from which changes can be deployed.
True North and VMware combine to offer virtualization solutions that will give your company extra flexibility, and allow you to reap the benefits of increased productivity and simplicity of operation that a VDI brings.
Security is always a concern when data is concerned, and despite perceptions to the otherwise, cloud data storage can actually be more secure than hosting data locally alone.
With a hybrid configuration, you have the option of storing sensitive data on your local network behind your company firewall, while extending less-critical applications to the cloud.
Or, choose True North’s secure hosting services to safely store your sensitive data. In addition to employing the highest security protocols, our secure data centers employ a number of strategies to ensure there is no physical breach.
Our data center security includes 24/7 visual monitoring, on-duty guard, keycard and biometric access as well as locked-cabinet servers, and restricted access. You can rest assured that with True North, your data will always be protected at the highest levels.
Backup and Recovery
A cloud environment offers unparalleled options for backup and disaster recovery, ensuring that your networks will always be in continuous operation should potentially catastrophic interruptions occur.
True North works with cutting-edge tools such as Zerto and Veeam to provide continuous backup and replication of your environments that will have you covered in case the unthinkable occurs. Whether it’s a server crash, a fire, or an earthquake – our disaster recovery solutions will ensure that your data will never be lost.
