CSE provide Cloud Services in Burgess Hill, Sussex and the area, allowing you to build a comprehensive cloud infrastructure for your business — and depend on full IT cloud support just a phone call away. Unsure how you could benefit from cloud computing? Let us explain the huge benefits!
Where does the term come from? Where is the Cloud? This word is being seen everywhere, so what is it?
The term Cloud comes from the way techies refer to the internet. They just draw a “cloud” to refer to the internet connection outside of the network they look after. The basic way of thinking about Cloud is that it is the means of storing and accessing data and programs over the internet. When you access Cloud services you are actually, in basic terms, accessing computing resources available from a shared pool of virtual, or physical systems to which users are granted access.
The Cloud can allow for efficiency, flexibility, reliability and smart working. Depending on what type of Cloud offering you choose to go for, you may also achieve predictable monthly expenditure and can even reduce your carbon footprint.
How can Cloud Services be incorporated into your business IT infrastructure? CSE can give you the help and advice you need to achieve your goal. There are different services offered through the Cloud, ranging from getting email only, to accessing literally everything you would normally see when sitting at your PC in the office.
If you want to know about how the Cloud can work for you then give CSE a call on 01444 238070 and we will be happy to help and advise you.
Private Cloud computing is a term used to define Infrastructure as a Service (IAAS) and/or Software as a Service, hosted from your business premises using existing or new hardware. These services are controlled and managed by IT. A wide range of services are available. These include, but are not limited to, Hosted Email, Cloud Storage, Hosted Applications, Hosted Databases, Offsite Backup, Virtual Servers/Desktops and Remote Desktop Services.
These protected services are available via private networks, typically your Local or Wide area network or, via the internet, secured by Virtual Private Network connections and complementary security measures. Services are made available to authorised users and can be accessed on a wide range of devices such as Pc’s, tablets and smart phones.
Private Cloud sources allow for levels of security to be applied that may not be available from Public Cloud. It allows businesses to make use of spare resources and capacity available on existing hardware by virtualising systems. Virtualising systems, when used effectively, will improve resilience to individual failures and allow for high availability and fast recovery. Although not as cost effective and scalable as Public Cloud, Private cloud can make more efficient use of existing computing resources.
Using CSE’s IT Cloud support consultation services, your needs are discussed and analysed to develop a best practice Private Cloud Solution specifically designed for you.
Public Cloud Computing is a term used to define Infrastructure as a Service (IAAS) and/or Software as a Service, hosted off premises by a Cloud provider.

These include, but are not limited to, Hosted Email, Cloud Storage, Hosted Applications, Hosted Databases, Offsite Backup, Virtual Server Support and Desktops.
These services are available via public networks, typically the internet and can be accessed on a wide range of devices such as Pc’s, tablets and smart phones.
Public Cloud resources are scalable, allowing you to increase and decrease how much, or how little, you need based on demand. Public Cloud offers great economy, predictable expenditure, high availability and the redundancy of high value server equipment.
