What Is Cloud?

What Is Cloud?

We constantly hear the word “CLOUD” bandied about, but how many of us grasp what it actually is? One definition is “Internet-based computing, whereby shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and other devices on-demand”. Cloud technology provides enormous advantages over traditional technology trends; the reduction in capital outlay costs, high software prices etc., but companies often have reservations concerning vulnerability of their cloud-based data.

Our hybrid ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS) solution comes with guaranteed 256-bit encryption and McAfee cloud-based security, giving customers the reassurance of that much-needed protection. Not only that, your access – as the end-user – is password protected, and you are the only holder of the encryption keys. SKY’s hybrid system is unique since, instead of pure CLOUD (web-based) access to all your data, software and infrastructure – which can be made more difficult by intermittent bandwidth – we provide you with a totally local presence system. Your software application, data and settings all reside locally on you PC, with synchronisation to the cloud when you connect to the Internet.
