NPI’s Canopy℠ Private Cloud Offering

Canopy℠ Managed Cloud offers an easy, powerful way to manage your infrastructure across in-house and Cloud environments.

As businesses begin to place workloads into the cloud and transform their infrastructure to harness the full power of virtualization, they are under pressure to rethink and redesign how to deploy and manage across Cloud platforms. Making sense of this diverse environment is both knowledge and time intensive and requires a knowledgeable managed services firm.

Four reasons your company will love the NPI Cloud

Cloud technology uses the internet to connect your business to servers, applications and other managed services located offsite.

Your staff can access these resources via their laptops, smartphones, tablets, or desktops from anywhere.  Canopy℠ Managed Cloud fully covers your Cloud technology to assure that resources are performing optimally and are always available. We protect your data from disaster by constantly confirming that vital information is secure, backed up and recoverable.

We wrap technology management around our Cloud hosting service because even in the Cloud your technology needs monitoring, management and maintenance to keep your business running smoothly.  We monitor the end-to-end infrastructure, applications, internet connections, and remote access guaranteeing that the Cloud delivers for your business.

Canopy℠ Managed Cloud provides secure cloud servers and storage, so you don’t have to worry about the up-front cost and maintenance of a technology refresh. The Cloud model is attractive because the business no longer has to buy, manage and maintain core equipment and operating systems.

Why choose the private cloud?

Most of the security concerns people have about the Cloud apply to the public Cloud — a multi-tenant environment where companies buy a “server slice” that’s shared with a number of other clients or tenants. Due to its nature, there are may be risks associated with the public Cloud.  The private Cloud doesn’t have those same risks because it’s not open to the same vulnerabilities. The NPI private Cloud has enterprise-level security measures in place so it is both high performing and secure.

“Canopy℠ Managed Cloud stabilizes costs, reduces complexity and increases agility.”

NPI can help no matter what configuration fits your needs today and tomorrow.  NPI can host your server in the Cloud using our trusted Canopy℠ Managed Cloud solution.
