Flexible, Cost-Effective Solutions for Growing Businesses
Cloud-based solutions provide clients with a wide array of computing services over the internet (aka "the cloud"). Cloud-based services allow you to access servers, storage, databases and applications quickly and simply, paying only for the resources you consume. MDI Access provides our clients with private cloud solutions.
By virtually sharing resources via cloud computing, performance can be optimized and costs minimized. Benefit from economies of scale and deploy resources based on your current needs rather than trying to estimate capacity needs in advance. Cloud computing solutions can be deployed quickly and globally, allowing your IT staff to focus on more strategic issues.

Improve implementation speed
Pay only for what you consume
Easily add (or reduce) storage/bandwidth when you need it
What is the cloud? The cloud is a term used to describe data center services delivered entirely by the vendor: everything from your servers, hardware, managed services, mission critical infrastructure, and network solutions via the vendor’s data centers.
What is the difference between public and private cloud solutions? AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure are great examples of public cloud platforms, although they will offer private cloud solutions on higher price points. The public cloud offers customers zero autonomy and control over the product. MDI only offers private cloud solutions. Private cloud solutions give customers more say in the final cloud deliverable.
Is the cloud significantly cheaper than colocation? Unfortunately, the answer to this one is: it depends. Your billing from a cloud solution truly depends exactly on what you’re IT team does now, and what you expect a cloud provider will do for you when you transition to their service. Some groups that transitioned over to the cloud have transitioned back to colocation or on-prem solutions. They found cloud solutions required different IT expertise, or were not as cost-effective as first advertised. MDI’s data center audit service can help you decide whether a custom private cloud solution is right for your team.
