Cloud Infrastructure Solutions: accelerate your transformation to the cloud

Flexibility, responsiveness and scalability of the information system, data availability, innovation—cloud computing offers companies a number of benefits including resilience, competitiveness and productivity.
Presented with the richness of the cloud ecosystem and technological innovations, which cloud solution should you choose: public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, or edge cloud computing? And which criteria should you use: existing infrastructure, scalability, data sensitivity and location, etc.?

Improve agility, resilience and performance with the cloud

The cloud offers the capacity for pay-as-you-go storage, computing and IT resources to best serve your company’s customer and business needs.

Your basic infrastructures — most often on your premises — enable you to host your applications, databases, and Internet and Intranet sites and store data that is essential for your business. In choosing the cloud, you are leveraging its flexibility to do even more and can:

  • Take your IS to the next level by integrating hosting for collaborative tools, telephony, SD-WAN, business applications (ERP) and workspaces
  • Guarantee your data’s security and availability
  • Ensure the continuity of your business activities with integrated disaster recovery (DR)/business continuity plan (BCP) solutions
  • Innovate with Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), etc.

Infrastructure-as-a-service solutions based on your highest priority: public cloud, private cloud and hybrid cloud

IT infrastructure can be based on public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud or even edge cloud computing solutions for which the dedicated infrastructures are located as close to the data source as possible and on your company’s site.
