"While the prospects of SDN are being more closely scrutinized, companies can consider other more entrenched solutions, like cloud computing. This allows businesses to share resources, most notably storage space, under a single â¤˜cloudâ¤™. However, a private server can also be established, allowing a business to centralize all of its functions or departments under a single cloud. A private cloud server also grants greater data security and control since all transfers and access are strictly monitored.Using outside IT support in Maryland, the application and implementation of both SDN and cloud computing solutions can go much more smoothly, without the need for hiring new staff. Through these consultancy services, companies are allowed better flexibility in adopting solutions that will work best in any stage of their operations."
