Cloud-based software applications have seen steady growth over the past few years and will continue to grow. Connectivity to the cloud is no longer an option for businesses - it's a requirement.The cloud creates a new set of challenges for IT organizations. Fast and reliable connections to the cloud, redundant connections that switch automatically when one fails, and secure connections are essential capabilities for your business to work effectively in the cloud.
What Is Cloud Computing?
Before determining whether cloud computing solutions are right for you, you need to have a basic understanding of what cloud computing is. At its most fundamental, cloud computing involves storing, managing, processing and communicating data on one or more remote servers as opposed to on a local network.
However, when compared to local networks, the cloud creates a new set of challenges for IT organizations. They need lightning-fast Internet access at all times, as well as well-designed, secure cloud infrastructures that allow for efficient data transmission, processing and storage. They also need professionals who have an in-depth understanding of cloud computing to manage these networks and keep them secure 24/7.
How Our IT Cloud Services Can Help Your Organization
A robust infrastructure, fast and reliable connections to the cloud, redundant connections that switch automatically when one fails and smooth, secure connections within the cloud are essential capabilities for your business to work efficiently in the cloud. Moreover, if your organization is growing, you need a scalable cloud environment that will be able to store and process more data.
However, ensuring your in-house IT department has the knowledge to manage a cloud environment can be costly. At the same time, it can also be challenging for your IT staff to stay abreast of new technological developments in this space.
That’s why Prelude Services provides long-term healthcare providers with the very best in IT cloud services for the healthcare industry.

Enjoy the Security of Your Own Private Cloud
Clouds can be public or private. The public cloud is defined as an environment where server space is purchased and shared with a number of other clients. A private cloud is a dedicated solution where the server space is only used for one single client. Security for a private cloud involves restricting access to authorized users only.
When it comes to an IT cloud for medical information, a private cloud is preferable, as it’s more secure than the public cloud. With Prelude Cloud Computing services, you have your own private cloud, which significantly enhances security and facilitates HIPAA compliance.
Our private cloud computing solution offers dedicated hardware, storage and networking to a single client — as well as the required support to manage the infrastructure and keep it running smoothly.
At Prelude Services, it’s our mission to provide healthcare organizations with trustworthy, secure and compliant IT services. Cloud computing solutions have healthcare services much to offer regarding connectivity, efficiency, speed and compliance — and many organizations find them preferable to local networks.
