Interested in a Cloud solution?

Rather than purchase cloud infrastructure from from a provider, businesses can build a private cloud on-premises – using Q5’s cloud infrastructure. When the organization using cloud maintains the cloud infrastructure, the environment and all the data and information is private. In a cloud computing architecture, which refers to the front end and back end of a cloud computing environment, cloud infrastructure consists of the back end components.

Cloud infrastructure is present in each of the three main cloud computing models — infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and software as a service (SaaS). Together, these three models form what’s often called a cloud computing stack, with IaaS as the foundation, PaaS as the middle layer, and SaaS as the top layer.

Cloud infrastructure

What Q5 offers

Cloud infrastructure refers to the hardware and software components — such as servers, storage, networking and virtualization software — that are needed to support the computing requirements of a cloud computing model. In addition, cloud infrastructures include a software abstraction layer that virtualizes resources and logically presents them to users through programmatic means

Within cloud computing, Q5 operates by making sure virtualized resources are hosted and delivered to users over a network or the Internet. These resources include virtual machines and components such as servers, compute, memory, network switches, firewalls, load balancers and storage.

Cloud Computing for Business : Why Cloud?

Use of cloud computing can change a company’s risk posture and profile. Use of public cloud, for example, can mean that you avoid the risk that a large investment in IT resources will not pay off but, on the other hand, it can introduce security risks, due to sharing resources with unknown parties, and risk of non-compliance with regulation, due to lack of control over how and where data is stored. The change can be positive or negative, depending on your circumstances.

Business agility requires the ability to create new business processes and change existing ones. This often means adding to or changing the supporting IT resources. The difficulty of doing this, and the time that it takes, can be a major barrier to innovation. Cloud computing can remove this barrier by enabling the enterprise to add to or change its IT resources quickly and easily.


Your business is part of an industry that must conform to strict security and data privacy issues.


Your business is your data and your applications. Therefore, control and security are paramount.


Your company is large enough to run a next generation cloud data center efficiently and effectively on its own.


Adhere to Strict data-sovereignty laws by sotring your data on premise and within the boarders.


Cloud computing provides a more productive environment for collaborative working, and improves productivity by enabling participants in a business ecosystem to share processing logic.


Cloud computing delivers improved agility because it has on-demand self-service and rapid elasticity. IT resources can be acquired and deployed more quickly and, once deployed, they can be increased or decreased as needed to meet demand


Cloud computing allows better usage information, better manageability, better quality of IT provision, better business continuity, and better carbon footprint.


Cloud computing can help you achieve cost reduction through server consolidation, thin clients, or community cost sharing.
