Enjoy the cloud

16 Dec 2015

I am very proud to announce that as of September this year Pipeson’s solutions are available as cloud-based services. For you as a customer it means that the initial implementation will be a lot easier than it was before, as it will not affect your local IT-environment. It also means that it will be easier to be a customer over time, as Pipeson will handle all of the central system updates, maintenance and backups for you.

But can this new technology really be trusted? The short answer is yes. Cloud services are well inside the box these days and adhere to ISO/IEC 27018 that sets the standard for the protection of information in the cloud. And as a matter of fact, most of us have already been using services such as cloud storage; webmail and Office 365 for quite some time, and cloud-based services will continue to become more important for our lives and businesses. In fact, Forbes predicts that 57% of the business’ databases and 60% of their applications will be hosted on a cloud platform in two years.

Currently, Microsoft and IBM are the two leading suppliers of cloud infrastructure and we have chosen Microsoft’s Azure Cloud platform, hosted in Microsoft datacenters, as their service was a better fit for the needs of both our clients and us. It is a high availability solution that delivers excellent performance and it has the highest possible level of security.

If you are not already a Pipeson customer, then this is the time to take the plunge. It has never been this easy to get started. And if you already are a Pipeson customer, who wants to enjoy the benefits of the Pipeson cloud solution, we will help you migrate to the cloud at no charge. Our goal is that 80% of Pipeson applications and databases are hosted in the cloud by the end of 2016. Just give us a call or send an e-mail and we’ll make it happen.
