Choosing a cloud provider for your business or organization is a big step. Moving to cloud computing can give your business a serious advantage in the face of stiff competition. Companies that want to work more efficiently and provide a better customer experience have been looking for solutions to cloud technology. There is a wide range of customized options for different needs. The first big question is starting to find the right provider for you.
Many industries, from agricultural that gaming have taken a leap into the cloud and are currently experiencing huge benefits. For example, increased security, lower costs and easier access for those who need it most. These are some of the most significant benefits of moving to a cloud solution.
When choosing a service provider for the cloud service, you want to make sure you make the right decision. That’s why we’ve put together three key questions you need to ask before choosing the right provider for you.
Does this service provider provide the services you need?
Sometimes the service menu may seem like a comprehensive menu for a restaurant. When you look at a list of Kubernetes, serverless computing, databases, artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual machines, and more, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.
Our best advice would be to stay focused on the services you need. A wide range of choices is easy to confuse, but at the end of the day, these services need to be right for your business or organization. Ask a potential service provider for more information about their services and map them to short- and long-term plans.

What kind of support are you looking for?
Second, in order to determine the amount of support your business may need, you need to review your budget and other resources. Any amount of time you have to devote to your cloud, technical experience, can be a deciding factor in the level of support.
VEXXHOST offers three different levels support you. Starting with one-time deployment, support, and fully managed. We welcome all companies of different sizes. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or an international company, our extensive OpenStack experience allows us to give you the support you need to succeed.
Is my information secure?
With regard to your information, you want to make sure it is secure. Finding a reliable cloud service is an essential part of choosing the right option for you. As you know, when it comes to securely storing and accessing large amounts of data through your business, cloud services are some of the safest options for your data. Ask questions about your cloud provider’s data centers. Find out about their security measures and what they do to ensure the security of your information.
We have server centers in Montreal, Quebec and Santa Clara, California. Network security is one of VEXXHOST’s top priorities. That is why we have an SSAE-16 facility that is subject to annual SOC Type 2 inspections. We also have security staff on site 24/7/365 and HD cameras throughout. In addition, our data centers have two-step authentication using either biometric or physical access control. We believe in enhancing our cloud services with the highest level of protection so you can rest assured knowing that your information is always secure.
Bonus: Choosing a cloud provider
Finally, before committing to a cloud vendor, you need to make sure they are able to deliver according to your needs. Bringing a private cloud solution into the IT ecosystem, either alone or in conjunction with a public cloud, will allow your business to remain competitive in today’s highly competitive world.
