Cloud Services

What do we mean by Cloud Services?

People use cloud services since the internet was invented. It’s the same thing as using web services such as public email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, aol), instant messaging or renting storage to publish a website. However, the term cloud is more fancy. Some people think of cloud services first as cloud computing, and only after as any other service available through the public internet.
Bittnet is bringing different cloud services to its customers so they can host meetings with participants from all over the world, use any device to open a document, or to scan the data to prevent different security attacks. All these are examples of Software As A Service (SaaS), a software distribution model in which applications are hosted by different service providers and made available to you over the internet.
Bittnet can also give you access to different clouds (Amazon Web Services – AWS, Microsoft – Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Cisco Cloud Solutions) so you can store data in a reliable virtual place, get extra computing power or accessing applications that you don’t need to install and maintain, you can use them instantly.
