Introducing the Cloud



Simply put, cloud computing is a type of Internet-based computing that provides shared or private computer processing, storage and networking resources on demand. It is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared or private pool of configurable computing resources.

Whether you are running applications that share photos to millions of mobile users or you’re supporting the critical operations of your business, a cloud services platform provides rapid access to flexible and low cost IT resources.

 With cloud computing, you don’t need to make large upfront investments in hardware and spend a lot of time on the heavy lifting of managing that hardware. Instead, you can provision exactly the right type and size of computing resources you need to power your newest bright idea or operate your IT department. 

You can access as many resources as you need, almost instantly, and only pay for what you use.

How Does Cloud Computing Work?

Cloud computing provides a simple way to access servers, storage, databases and a broad set of application services over the Internet.

A Cloud services platform such as GMX TEC, owns and maintains the network-connected hardware required for these application services, while you provision and use what you need via a web application, services or a specific feature.



Advantages and benefits 
of Cloud Computing


Trade capital expenditure for operational expenses !

Instead of having to invest heavily in data centers and servers before you know how you’re going to use them, you can only pay when you consume computing resources, and only pay for how much you consume.

Economies of scale

By using cloud computing, you can achieve a lower variable cost than you can get on your own. Because usage from our customers are aggregated in the cloud, providers such as GMX TEC can achieve higher economies of scale which translates into lower pay as you go prices for you.

Increase speed and agility 

Cloud computing provides access to numerous technologies while allowing agencies to save time and money, improve operations, and encourage innovation. 

Better Collaboration

Improve productivity. Enhance the customer experience and enable business growth. Collaboration offerings that helps drive a positive experience, with one platform for calling, conferencing, video, and sharing.

Why should I move my business to the GMX cloud?


From an accounting standpoint, you eliminate the capital expense incurred with a new server (or servers) and deployment, along with the required operating system and common applications like Microsoft Office. Instead, you transition into an operational expense that you can plan and budget for.

From a technology standpoint, you no longer need to worry about power outages, hardware failures, offsite backup, internet outages, and expensive maintenance fees. You get rid of hardware and software obsolescence by maintaining the latest versions of the programs and features you need.

From a business standpoint, you avoid costly downtime and the need to maintain application updates across multiple systems. You gain the ability to work and access from anywhere and save thousands on deployment and maintenance costs.

Usage of Cloud Computing


Private cloud and hybrid cloud

Among the many incentives for using cloud, there are two situations where organizations are looking into ways to assess some of the applications they intend to deploy into their environment through the use of a cloud (specifically a public cloud). While in the case of test and development it may be limited in time, adopting a hybrid cloud approach allows for testing application workloads, therefore providing the comfort of an environment without the initial investment that might have been rendered useless should the workload testing fail.

Test and development

This entails securing a budget, setting up your environment through physical assets, significant manpower and time. Then comes the installation and configuration of your platform. All this can often extend the time it takes for a project to be completed and stretch your milestones. With cloud computing, there are now readily available environments tailored for your needs at your fingertips. This often combines, but is not limited to, automated provisioning of physical and virtualized resources.

File storage

Cloud can offer you the possibility of storing your files and accessing, storing and retrieving them from any web-enabled interface.
At any time and place you have high availability, speed, scalability and security for your environment.
In this scenario, organizations
are only paying for the amount of storage they are actually consuming,
and do so without the worries of overseeing the daily maintenance of the storage infrastructure.


Cloud-based backup, while not being the panacea, is certainly a far cry from what it used to be.
You can now automatically dispatch data to any location across the wire
with the assurance that neither security, availability nor capacity are issues.

You can access your cloud services from any device.
That includes your current desktop, your home iMac, Windows Phone, Droid.
 In fact, our motto is “Anywhere, Any Time, Any Device.”
