Cloud Computing Solutions
Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network (typically the Internet). The planning for IT infrastructure has always been a challenge for any organization due to increasingly incrementing demand for resources. Even when an organization plans for it well in advance, optimization of Infrastructure is not easy. Companies such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft saw these issues as an opportunity, and thus, Cloud Computing originated.
Cloud Computing is a model for enabling on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources — networks, servers, storage, applications, and services—that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.
Mantra has been an early adopter of newer technologies and Cloud Computing is no different. Mantra has deeper expertise in SOA and SaaS, and this has helped us in adopting Cloud Computing seamlessly leveraging Cloud Computing service models to our customers’ advantage.
