Cloud

10Fingers Cloud computing is a computing paradigm, where a large pool of systems are connected in private or public networks, to provide dynamically scalable infrastructure for application, data and file storage. With the advent of 10Fingers Cloud Solution, the cost of computation, application hosting, content storage and delivery is reduced significantly.

10Fingers Cloud practical approach experience direct cost benefits and it has the potential to transform a data center from a capital-intensive set up to a variable priced environment. .

The idea of Cloud Solution is based on a very fundamental principal of reusability of IT capabilities'. The difference that cloud computing brings compared to traditional concepts of “grid computing”, “distributed computing”, “utility computing”, or “autonomic computing” is to broaden horizons across organizational boundaries.


Approach

10Fingers offers 2 models of Cloud solutions as a service :

  • Software as a Service ( SAAS ) :In this model, a complete application is offered to the customer, as a service on demand. A single instance of the service runs on the cloud & multiple end users are serviced. On the customers‟ side, there is no need for upfront investment in servers or software licenses.
  • Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas) : IaaS provides basic storage and computing capabilities as standardized services over the network. Servers, storage systems, networking equipment, data centre space etc. are pooled and made available to handle workloads. The customer would typically deploy his own software on the infrastructure.

Despite the growing trend of Data Digitization and its influence, concerns regarding cloud computing still remain.

Data Protection

Data Security is a crucial element that warrants scrutiny. Enterprises are reluctant to buy an assurance of business data security from 10Fingers. They fear losing data to competition and the data confidentiality of consumers. In many instances, the actual storage location is not disclosed, adding onto the security concerns of enterprises. In the existing models, firewalls across data centers (owned by us) protect this sensitive information. In the cloud model, 10Fingers team are responsible for maintaining data security and enterprises would have to rely on them.

Data Recovery and Availability

10fingers have Service level agreements that are stringently followed.

  • Our Operational teams play a key role in management of service level agreements and runtime governance of applications.
  • In our production environments, operational teams support appropriate clustering and Fail over - Data Replication.
  • System monitoring (Transactions monitoring, logs monitoring and others)
  • Maintenance (Runtime Governance)
  • Disaster recovery
  • Capacity and performance management

All the above mentioned services is under-served by 10Fingers team at priority level so that the damage & impact could be served.

Regulatory and Compliance Restrictions

  • We understand that Some Govt. Institutions do not allow customer's personal information and other sensitive information to be physically located outside the state or country.
  • In order to meet such requirements, 10Fingers has started the setup of a data center and a storage site exclusively within the country to comply with regulations.
  • Having such an infrastructure may not always be feasible and is a big challenge for us.
  • With cloud computing, the action moves to the interface — that is, to the interface between service suppliers and multiple groups of service consumers.
  • Our Cloud services will demand expertise in distributed services, procurement, risk assessment and service negotiation — areas that many enterprises are only modestly equipped to handle.
