Cloud Solution Slicks

RapidScale’s CloudDesktop (DaaS) solution allows organizations to move all their applications and desktop to the cloud. They are able to access their virtual desktop environment through an Internet connection from any device, anywhere in the world.

CloudServer (IaaS) eliminates the need to spend capital on upgrading physical hardware and move into an Operating Expense (OpEx) model. All hardware is virtualized and delivered on a per-month subscription rate. The consumer does not manage or control the underlying cloud physical infrastructure but has control over operating systems, storage, and applications.

CloudMail is RapidScale’s Hosted Exchange offering. CloudMail is industry leading in the delivery, design, and support of Microsoft Exchange. Our Service Level Agreement on CloudMail is 100% uptime and all support is U.S. based.

CloudRecovery (DRaaS) provides businesses with cost-effective disaster recovery services by offering critical storage based replication and recovery within a managed environment in the cloud. RapidScale’s data centers are Tier 3, Class 1 providing enterprise-level security.

Industry Slicks

The automotive industry relies on the availability of a customer’s perfect car. When you have the ability to search inventories on the spot and stay connected, you close more sales and have more happy customers.

In current tight funding situations, Cloud for Education is a low cost option to high end computing. It provides an easy way to collaborate from every angle of the school system. When budgets are low and the need for the latest technology is high,
RapidScale can provide a solution that accommodates both.

There is nothing better than being able to access all the information you need, wherever you are. With RapidScale’s cloud solutions, you can access your information remotely, which allows you to more easily reach out to clients and serve their needs.

Cloud computing offers significant benefits to the healthcare sector. Doctor’s clinics, hospitals, and health clinics require quick access to computing and large storage facilities which are not provided in a traditional setting.

In the past, hotels tended to overbuy technology at the outset, and then they would hold off on new purchases until the capacity of the system had become inadequate. This is the worst possible combination: spending too much initially and ending up with a system that is inadequate a few years later.

The legal industry relies on the ability to store and back up large quantities of files for long periods of time. RapidScale’s cloud products allow for the most advanced backup, failover, recovery, and computing to be easily accessible for any firm.

Traditional logistics IT teams have been bogged down in the past by being restricted to local networks and in-house IT management. The cloud completely revitalizes the way the transportation industry handles tracking, diagnostics, and more.

Non-profit organizations rely on effectively running a company on a limited budget. When all you want to do is allocate money to your community, it is difficult to spend funds on technology and infrastructure. RapidScale makes it easy to stay within budget as well as stay up-to-date on the most advanced computing solutions.

Manufacturing companies are challenged with managing diverse geographic locations and supply chains that require large, complex database applications. Cloud computing allows manufacturers to establish a presence in virtually any global location and connect plants to an IT infrastructure using cloud-based templates that include everything required to get a location up and running.  

Comparisons

Azure Virtual Machines and CloudServer are different virtual server offerings. Businesses need to decide if they want to work with a huge cloud player with minimal management options, or with a managed cloud provider that can be there every step of the way.

Businesses need to be aware of what their priorities are. Do you want a cloud environment over which you have full control, with minimal support from the provider? Or do you want a fully managed cloud solution that allows you to focus on your core business while benefiting from support and guidance?

Office 365 and CloudDesktop are not apples-to-apples solutions. Office 365 provides a very specific suite of business applications, while RapidScale’s CloudDesktop is a fully managed Desktop as a Service solution that can integrate the majority of business applications. What is your business looking for?

Rackspace and RapidScale have differing services, and Rackspace actually lacks a Desktop as a Service cloud solution. A business really has to know what it’s looking for when comparing the two, including whether or not it wants a cloud solution dedicated to virtual desktop services.

SoftLayer and RapidScale have differing services, and SoftLayer actually lacks a Desktop as a Service cloud solution. A business really has to know what it’s looking for when comparing the two. Do you want a cloud solution dedicated to virtual desktop services? Would you prefer to take the reins on management, or take advantage of a fully managed cloud solution that allows you to focus on your core business?
