SINAM provides a variety of cloud services to assist businesses in digitizing their systems and moving away from traditional physical systems. Among these services are:
Private Cloud Services and Virtualization
The Private Cloud (Internal Cloud or Corporate Cloud) is a type of cloud computing that delivers similar advantages to public cloud, including scalability and self-service, but through a proprietary structure. Unlike public clouds, which deliver services to multiple organizations; a private cloud is dedicated to the needs and goals of a single organization. Virtualization is the creation of a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, such as an operating system, a server, a storage device or network resources. For the virtualization of the operating system is the use of software to allow a piece of hardware to run multiple operating system images at the same time. This technology has been implemented on central computers for decades, allowing officials to avoid wasting expensive processing capacity.
Software as a service (SaaS)
(SaaS) is a software distribution model in which an external provider hosts applications and makes them available to customers via the Internet. SaaS cancels the need for organizations to install and run applications on their own computers or in their own data centers. This eliminates the expense of hardware acquisition, provisioning and maintenance, as well as software licensing, installation and support.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
(IaaS) is a form of cloud computing that provides virtualized computing resources via the internet. In an IaaS model, a cloud providers host the infrastructure components traditionally exist in an on-premises data center, including servers, storage and networking hardware, as well as the virtualization or hypervisor layer. The IaaS provider also supplies a range of services to accompany those infrastructure components. These can include detailed billing, monitoring, log access, security, load balancing and clustering, as well as storage resiliency, such as backup, replication and recovery. These services are increasingly policy-driven, enabling IaaS users to implement greater levels of automation and orchestration for important infrastructure tasks. For example, a user can implement policies to drive load balancing to maintain application availability and performance.
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
(PaaS) is a cloud computing model in which a third-party provider delivers hardware and software tools, usually those needed for application development to users over the internet. A PaaS provider hosts the hardware and software on its own structure. As a result, PaaS frees users from having to install in-house hardware and software to develop or run a new application. PaaS does not typically replace a business’s entire IT infrastructure. Instead, a business relies on PaaS providers for key services, such as application hosting or Java development.
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)
(DRaaS) is the replication and hosting of physical or virtual servers by a third-party to overcome failover in the event of a man-made or natural catastrophe. With disaster recovery as a service, the time to return applications to production is reduced because data does not need to be restored over the internet. DRaaS can be especially useful for small and medium-sized businesses that lack the necessary expertise to provision, configure and test an effective disaster recovery plan.
