Cloud Services

Cloud services are infrastructure, platforms, or software that are hosted by third-party providers and made available to users through the internet. Third-party providers contract with subscribers for these services, allowing customers to leverage powerful computing resources without having to purchase or maintain hardware and software

Like all other IT solutions, cloud services rely on hardware and software. However, unlike traditional hardware and software solutions, users don’t need anything other than a computer, network connection, and operating system to access cloud services.

Examples of Cloud Services

  • Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provides users with compute, networking, and storage resources
  • Platforms-as-a-Service (PaaS) provides users with a platform on which applications can run, as well as all the IT infrastructure required for it to run
  • Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provides users with—essentially—a cloud application, the platform on which it runs, and the platform’s underlying infrastructure
  • Function-as-a-Service (FaaS), an event-driven execution model, lets developers build, run, and manage app packages as functions without maintaining the infrastructure

Public Cloud

Shared, on-demand IT and business services accessed over the public internet, based on a pay as you go models for individuals and users from many unrelated companies.

Customers can leverage a common platform of virtualized compute, storage and networking that delivers a consistent operational model across private and public clouds and can be managed using existing skillsets and processes.

Private Cloud

Dedicated IT services located on premise or hosted by 3rd party where assets are virtualized and organised as cloud and use is restricted for users in a single organisation.

Profy Technologies is the foundation for best-in-class private clouds deployed in partnership with software and hardware vendors. Profy gives customers the flexibility to run their private clouds on-premises or to consume them as a service

Hybrid Cloud

An enterprise IT architecture that unifies automated policy based, consumption-aware self service configuration, provisioning and management of public and private cloud infrastructure (IaaS), middleware (PaaS) and database/application (SaaS) resources, as well as physical, virtual and software defined non-cloud IT assets. Profy Cross-Cloud Architecture supports IT’s adoption of public or private clouds without creating cloud silos.

This new architecture provides a control plane for common management, policies, networking, and security across private and public clouds. IT organizations can discover what services exist across different clouds, and enforce security and governance while efficiently managing costs.

The Cross-Cloud Architecture enables businesses to more seamlessly build and operate cloud-native applications by managing the provisioning and management of cloud-native cluster frameworks. Effectively, IT can provide these frameworks as services to their app teams on the cloud of their choice, with freedom and control.
