cloud / FLEX

Looking to extend your data center into the cloud? You’re in the right place.

Would your business benefit from cloud services, but you don’t trust them as much as your internally-built infrastructure? Do you need an extension of your data center in the cloud, supported by a partner who can custom-build it with you? IDS offers infrastructure-as-a-service solutions that can meet today’s complex IT requirements. Building custom cloud environments and managed services models is what we do best.

These solutions are customized, cost-effective, and most importantly, secure.

Five reasons why your cloud infrastructure partner matters.

  • Your infrastructure is the lifeblood of your applications. If you choose to have this provided as a service, you need to trust the partner who maintains it.
  • Enterprise environments require custom support models. Integrating with your ticketing software, change control process, and auditing schedules are just part of what we do.
  • You need transparency. Know that your cloud partner is running infrastructure that matches your availability and performance requirements
  • Infrastructure and applications go hand-in-hand. When you’re troubleshooting, do you want to work with a partner you trust, or website with an 800-number?
  • You want an integral partner. Your cloud partner should be part of your strategic IT team and assist in planning proactively for the future.

Infrastructure isn’t the only thing you get with IDS.
