Cloud. It means different things to different people.
You’ve probably landed here because of the term ‘Cloud’.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 42% of businesses were using paid cloud in 2019, up 11% from the previous year.
The benefits of using cloud technology and cloud solutions mean that you can:
Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, Multi-Cloud, AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud. It’s no wonder it can be overwhelming when it comes to deciding on cloud technology.
Developing a cloud-first strategy is more than just deciding to use cloud storage.
38% Improving customer services
38% Keeping up with competitors
34% Seeking to adopt innovative technology
37% Legacy Systems
Often we see the driver of cost being at the forefront when it comes to replacing legacy systems that are built on on-premise infrastructure. This plays a large part in the decision to move to cloud technology.
This was a challenge faced by Cooper Grace Ward
We moved to CloudReady IaaS over 5 years ago and this move allowed the firm to further focus on servicing our legal customers while Global Storage ensures our systems are online and can be expanded or have a performance uplift at the click of a button. Their team of dedicated customer-focused engineers care and take pride in ensuring our IT environment supports our team of lawyers to do what they do best.

Breaking your infrastructure refresh cycle can be hard. Technology is moving at such a rapid pace meaning that the minimum requirements of your existing hardware from 3 years ago is far removed from your requirements today.
Moving to the cloud means that you no longer need to consider your hardware refresh cycle.
Your IT team is now focused on delivering benefits & productivity improvements to the business, not managing hardware or supporting break-fix requests. Leveraging cloud technology means that Global Storage takes on the challenge of ensuring that you’ve got access to cutting-edge technology and that it’s purpose fit for your business.
Using the CloudReady platform means that your IT costs move from large CAPEX purchase orders to forecastable regular OPEX. With no data movement fees, you’re able to forecast costs involved with new employees, large scale project support (including burst capacity or test environments).
You know your business, we know our technology.
CloudReady services can be used in flexible and elastic private, public and hybrid cloud deployment combinations designed to coexist and integrate with your existing data centre environments.
At Global Storage, we are exceptionally proud of our client relationships. We work in partnership to understand your business and its unique needs before providing you with recommendations on the cloud solutions that fit your business.
Our solutions and methodology are tried and tested.
We moved to CloudReady IaaS after falling victim to a cyber-attack in 2020 and haven’t looked back. We no longer need to procure hardware, software and look after any data centre environments. Our data is protected and our systems are always up and much faster than when we were operating our own in house environment.
