What is Cloud Computing?

Our guide to how cloud technology can save you time, risk and money

The “cloud” is a part of daily life for most people, but when topics arise such as public vs private clouds, and what encompasses a cloud solution, things can get confusing. Cloud computing is a big shift from the traditional way businesses think about IT resources. 

Aurion’s cloud journey started over 10 years ago. We initially offered a SaaS solution hosted on a reputable Australian cloud provider’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform. Over the years, there have been various iterations of our SaaS solution as the provider’s capabilities grew. 

In 2018, Aurion made the decision to move to the AWS platform, which offered not only IaaS but also Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for some services. The AWS platform has allowed us to improve how we can scale the solution, provided efficiencies in the deployment of the underlying infrastructure and improved the level of change control. Security is at the core of the AWS platform, and this is validated by a comprehensive list of international and Australian security-related standards that AWS are certified to. AWS are continually improving their platform service offering as well as developing new and exciting services, and Aurion is motivated to incorporate these services into our solution and provide innovative solutions for our customers.

In our guide to cloud computing with Aurion, we explore what cloud computing is, how we use cloud technology to deliver our Aurion people & payroll technology, and the benefits of cloud solutions for your business, no matter what you’re using it for. We’ve provided our free comprehensive guide to cloud technologies – learn about IaaS, PaaS and other cloud technologies enabling you to reduce risk and save money now.
