Pulsant Shows How Cloud Approach Can be Shaped by Business Needs
READING, England, July 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Confirms that SMBs who align cloud storage to commercial goals
Cloud and managed hosting experts, Pulsant, is calling for a major perception shift on cloud. Â It's client-centric approach is inspiring SMBs to look at cloud infrastructure not just as a shared, utility-based resource that can be accessed on a 'pay-as-you-go' basis, but as a strategic business tool that can also be configured and fine-tuned to address specific operational agendas.
As part of this, Pulsant is asking that CIOs, seeking to enhance their business contribution, take a more proactive stance in building successful cloud outcomes by shaping storage provision in line with their commercial goals. Â It also reveals that those who do can create a more effective roadmap for growth, risk reduction and competitive success.
Mark Howling, CEO at Pulsant, explains, "We have been providing cloud infrastructure and services for over 10 years. Â During this time we have become well aware of when and where cloud works best and how to get the most out of any infrastructure investment. Â It is clear to us that the most successful cloud adopters are those SMBs who map their cloud requirements closely to their key business objectives.
"Many SMBs are not doing this today because current commodity-style provisioning, has led to a belief that cloud infrastructure can be only 'one gear, flavour or speed'. Â With Pulsant that's simply not the case. Â Our cloud is far more flexible, enabling customers to select performance variability to suit their demand and even to choose the location of their cloud. Â Â In this way, companies can use cloud as a means to achieving commercial goals faster, more cost effectively and with greater security and much lower risk. "
Working with over 3,000 SMB clients, Pulsant has identified the following strategic priorities and how cloud infrastructure can be used to contribute to their realisation: Â
