DoIT provides a number of IT infrastructure-related services to Executive Branch State agencies.
DoIT offers Maryland State agencies a secure, hybrid cloud Public Cloud Hosting Services.
Features and Benefits
Lower infrastructure costs: One benefit of moving to the Public Cloud Hosting Services is the lowering of infrastructure costs for hosting new business applications. No longer do organizations have the responsibility of ensuring uptime, purchasing and maintaining hardware, or replacing old equipment. Public Cloud Hosting also saves organizations from having to buy more capacity to deal with sudden business spikes. Public Cloud Hosting application deployments can help agencies reduce their total cost of ownership through lower cost hosted solutions for their test, development, and production application environments.
Pay-as-you-go model: Because Public Cloud Hosting use is metered, organizations pay for only the capacity needed at any given time. This method also allows them to avoid large upfront monthly or annual fees for benefits they may not use.
Scalability and flexibility: One of the greatest benefits of Public Cloud Hosting is the ability to scale up and down quickly in response to an enterprise’s requirements. Public Cloud Hosting provides powerful storage, servers and networking technology to accommodate the needs of our customers. This on-demand scalability provides added flexibility and greater agility to respond to changing opportunities and requirements. This is especially helpful in building and dismantling test and development environments, which greatly benefit from this increased speed and agility.
Faster time to market: Quick time to market is one of the best features of the platform. Because Public Cloud Hosting provides elasticity and scalability, organizations can ramp up and get the job done (and the product or service to market) more rapidly.
