Cloud technologies are one of the fastest growing segments of the IT market. Cloud advantages include flexibility, mobility, cost-effectiveness and reliability. Acquisition and maintenance of your own server is quite a challenging task, which requires significant investments and availability of qualified personnel.
BlitzBrain helps businesses of all sizes operating in any industry to optimize their IT infrastructure by deploying cloud services at various levels: from platforms and administration tools to the lease of business applications.
It is a sales and use model, where supplier develops and manages a web application independently and provides customers with access to the software over the Internet. The supplier bears the costs of maintaining the functionality of the application, whereas the user (if the service is provided for a charge) only pays for using the cloud-based software. The user therefore does not need to pay a one-off amount to buy a license, while the developer is protected from unauthorized use and distribution of its IT solution.
It is used exclusively by companies, since regular users since regular users do not usually need it. In this model the customer is provided with various computer infrastructure: servers, storage systems, network hardware, as well as software for the management of these resources.
As a rule, this scheme makes use of virtualization technologies, i.e. a specific piece of hardware can be used by several customers (a typical example is the splitting of a physical server into virtual servers and making them available to individual customers).
A crucial advantage of this approach for customers is that they do not need to purchase expensive hardware, which may simply stand idle – a customer only pays for what is needed at a given time with the ability to flexibly increase or decrease the amount of resources used.
Provision of a platform with specific characteristics for development, testing, deployment, web application support, etc.
With the PaaS model, all of the web application development, testing and deployment operations can be performed within a single integrated environment, thereby eliminating the cost of supporting individual environments for specific phases. This significantly reduces the cost of both hardware purchase and maintenance, as well as service costs. A typical use example is hosting services for websites.
