Cloud-Based Computing

Eliminate Server Purchases, Improve Application Availability and Refocus Your Internal IT Resources
Cloud computing is the delivery of computing and storage capacity as a service*. It provides a vastly more efficient, flexible and cost-effective way for your organization to meet its escalating IT business needs: IT as a Service. 2nd Node offers you an evolutionary and practical path to this new model, with solutions that harness the power of the cloud while ensuring security and preserving the value of your existing technology investments.
2nd Node has developed a unique cloud architecture offering flexible outsourcing options to help organizations transition to the cloud. 2nd Node's Private Cloud provides clients the ability to store data and system files, electronically vault system backups, operate and/or restore network systems in the 2nd Node virtual server environment and replicate their primary data center SAN(s) to the 2nd Node SAN storage systems. Silver Peak network concentrators are used for accelerating and encrypting data communications for remote operations and production systems. 
*Gartner’s official definition of cloud computing is “A style of computing where scalable and elastic IT-enabled capabilities are delivered as a service to customers using Internet technologies.”
