Posted on: August 8th, 2018 by nexstepaz No Comments

Many companies now opt for cloud-based services to maximize efficiency and profitability while minimizing costs. Many cloud service providers now exist to serve this growing need. But the question is: How to choose the right cloud service provider?


What are Cloud Service Providers?

Cloud service providers (CSP) are companies that offer network services, infrastructure, or business applications in the cloud. The cloud services are hosted in a data centerthat can be accessed by companies or individuals using network connectivity.

There are three types of cloud services currently available:

  • SaaS – Software as a Service, where you use an online software tailored to your firm’s needs
  • PaaS – Platform as a Service or computing platform, where you can develop or host your applications
  • IaaS –Infrastructure as a Service, where you put your entire networking or computing infrastructure on the internet

This classification is not always accurate as they tend to overlap, with some providers offering multiple services at once. But you can choose to purchase or subscribe one instead of all. Nowadays many cloud providers also specializefor specific industries.

Some of the top cloud services are Cisco, Citrix, Google, IBM (SoftLayer), Oracle, Microsoft (Azure), and SAP, Rackspace, and Verizon (which acquired Terremark). They provide web hosting and applications to millions of customers. Apple and Salesforce are also big players in cloud services, though they are mostly focused on delivering their own applications rather than hosting applications for others.

What matters most to your firm is how cloud providers can contribute to your productivity and core knowledge implementation. So the best cloud service providers may provide tons of features and offerings that you’re not going to use all. The best service cloud provider for your firm is the one that suits your specific needs and/or responsive to your requests.
