Connection Cloud Computing Solutions

We help you discern, design, and deliver the best cloud solutions for your business.
There are no one-size-fits-all versions of any cloud technology when it comes to real-world applications. That's why we view cloud technologies as raw materials that you can combine in multiple ways to achieve your desired business outcomes.

  • Private Clouds

    Private Clouds are resource pools run for a specific organization, controlled and managed by that organization (either with their own personnel/equipment or a third party's personnel/equipment). A private cloud might be a company's own data center, a fully managed and hosted off-premise environment, or some combination thereof.

    » Self-Run Private Cloud » Managed Private Cloud » Dedicated Private Cloud
  • Public Clouds

    Public Clouds are built by a cloud provider, and organizations effectively rent compute capabilities in a shared environment controlled and managed by that provider.

    » SaaS Public Cloud » PaaS Public Cloud » IaaS Public Cloud
  • Hybrid Clouds

    Hybrid Clouds combine aspects of private and public clouds. For example, a company may host email in their own private cloud, but archive email in a provider's public cloud.


3 Steps: Discern, Design, and Deliver
Our proven 3-step process aligns your business needs with the right cloud technologies. First, our cloud experts work with you to discern where you are today, your business and IT context, and what you want to accomplish. Then, our architects help you to design and deliver the cloud solutions that meet your objectives. When it comes to execution, we have deep partnerships with best-of-breed providers in every cloud category—from private cloud to software as a service. Our goal is to deliver the right solutions, built upon the foundation of your business needs.

There are no bad choices
All of these cloud technologies offer substantial benefits to both IT and the business. There are seven primary dimensions in a cloud solution, and our ratings indicate potential levels of challenge for realizing the benefits of each dimension. Our ratings are the foundation of our Discernment process, which we use to help determine optimal cloud solutions to meet customer objectives.

How Do I Get Started?
Engage our Cloud experts so we can assess your current environment and your specific business and IT drivers for considering Cloud. Cloud Connection will help you determine which workloads are ideal for cloud enablement. If you have a specific goal in mind we can begin there, from there our team will create a custom Cloud solution roadmap for your organization. For customers that have a well-defined vision for the Cloud project that they are ready to move forward with, we can start there as well.
