The pendulum swing over the past years from managing traditional software support models to cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) has achieved significant momentum. Support for conventional business applications before the proliferation of the cloud seems complicated due to an assortment of hardware and software requirements. Both vendors and internal teams are required as an entire team of experts to
implement, update, test, and run them. Moving mission-critical applications to the cloud allows applications to be hosted remotely and made available to customers over a network. Applications are accessible via an internet browser 24/7 from any device. There are no installation, equipment updates, or traditional licensing management. Cloud computing now means greater flexibility as it promises advanced collaboration leveraging technology platforms with other cloud vendors.
Today GDS operates as a 100% cloud company with no physical servers. We leverage AWS and Microsoft Azure as the best infrastructure (IaaS) and platform (PaaS) as a service to deliver pure SaaS-based systems
and processes. Our cloud environment allows us to achieve maximum scalability, unparalleled services, and a complete focus on creating the best software and services for our customers.
