What is the cloud?
Cloud computing is a service model where technology resources are delivered to your workstations from a secure location via a network connection (usually the internet). By using TDF Cloud you are sharing in a pool of virtual and real resources that are hosted and maintained in Australia by us. You can think of it like water usage – even though you use water all the time you haven’t built your own dam, instead it’s more efficient to tap into a larger supply that has been setup and is maintained by a professional organisation, paying only for as much as you need.
TDF Cloud is a collection of hosted services offered to clients who want to take advantage of enterprise-grade server clusters without the associated cost. By hosting your business applications on our Cloud servers you’re choosing to leverage powerful tools, maintained by us, which have the flexibility to scale with your needs without compromising performance.
REDUCE YOUR IT SPEND: SAVE ON HARDWARE AND MAINTENANCE
Running a well-functioning server that will handle your needs can be expensive. Apart from the initial hardware cost you need someone to configure, maintain and update your server on a regular basis. As a TDF Cloud client you have access to our enterprise server clusters that have been designed to handle the most strenuous processes. We take care of all server management and maintenance so that you never have to worry about it. We make sure our servers are always functional and let you get on with your business. All TDF Cloud services are based on a price-per-user model, meaning that you only ever pay for what you use.
INFORMATION SECURITY: PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION & TECHNOLOGY
We ensure that our servers have the highest level of security so that the information and applications stored on them are only accessible by those with authorisation. They are optimised to be protected against breaches of confidentiality and data loss, so you can be confident your information is secure. By using TDF Cloud services your data falls under our protection.
FLEXIBILITY AND MOBILITY: WORK FROM ANYWHERE
Our Cloud services give you the flexibility to work from anywhere. Our servers can connect with any of your devices throughout Australia and internationally. Hosting with us decentralises your applications so that you aren’t tied to one physical location, meaning that you can move premises or set up new offices without disruption to your workflow capabilities.
PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT: IMMEDIATE ON-DEMAND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE
When something goes wrong, the last thing you want is to be kept waiting on-hold in a queue of customers only to speak to a customer service rep in a different part of the world who can’t help you solve the issue you’re having. As one of our clients, you can leverage the experience and professionalism of our Australian based support team who are ready to assist you with any difficulties you may encounter.
DATA SOVEREIGNTY: OWN YOUR DATA
Unlike many of the larger IT conglomerates our servers are located within Australia, which means your information is kept within our borders and only subject to Australian laws. This gives you the assurance your data and intellectual property are stored locally in Australia. In some cases it may be legally required that you maintain data sovereignty of sensitive information. For our international clients we have infrastructure located in Singapore that is designed specifically for businesses that operate in and around Asia. This infrastructure operates independently of our Australian-based location so that there’s no crossover.
