Extending this between the new Cloud service and CVMS’s office, it incorporated Firewall-as-a-Service as part of the critical security and privacy required for offnet connectivity. It also allowed the secure testing of new technologies and VMS options, machine learning engines and neural network integrations off-site.
“Any nervousness about compromising the uniqueness of our offering quickly disappeared,” says Binedell. “Vocus took care of everything at the back end, so we could concentrate completely on the front end: our customers’ needs and our services.”
“Being able to provide Infrastructure-as-a-Service can be a total liberation for companies like CVMS,” says Knowles. “They never have to think again about server upgrades; they can scale up or down instantly with complete flexibility and, with a modular Quality-of-Service approach, they can add other services and revenue streams whenever they need it, with seamless prioritisation.”
For the team at CVMS, the new way of working has already seen them take on new clients and offer new services. “We’re glad to be out of the hardware game,” says Binedell. “It might have seemed a leap, going onto a monthly spend out of OpEx and putting so much faith in Vocus. But, if we didn’t, we simply wouldn’t be where we are now.”
