Hiflex Launching MIS Cloud Computing at GRAPH EXPOSeptember 7, 2011
AACHEN, GERMANY—Sept. 7, 2011—There is no doubt that Cloud Computing has fundamentally changed IT like no other development in the last decade. It represents the new standard for all future technologies.
The idea is to avoid the costs of maintaining software and hardware on your own and instead rent it from “the Cloud.” An example of a huge success in Cloud Computing is Google Mail, where you no longer need your own mail server or software licenses, as required with a service like Microsoft Exchange Server. Google Mail offers mail services from the Cloud and is accessible from every computer on the internet.
Hiflex, the global developer of MIS and Web-to-print solutions, is the first to offer an MIS Cloud Computing solution for the graphic industry. The Hiflex Cloud Computing Enterprise Solution allows full access to its MIS via the Internet – from anywhere and at any time.
Provides the greatest possible freedom, allowing employees to access the system from anywhere and at any time.
By using the Enterprise Cloud Computing solution from Hiflex, companies lower their operational costs by eliminating investments in IT infrastructure. Users can concentrate on their core business, reduce the costs of IT administration and eliminate costs of obsolescence as hardware and software are outsourced.
Allows unlimited data storage and the Hiflex MIS system is as fast as required because Cloud Computing offers the most scalable processing speeds available.
Professional data centers offer the highest possible security with constantly updated system protection and redundant data storage in the Cloud.
Service quality is clearly improved, because Cloud Computing goes along with the ‘quality as a service’ concepts of Hiflex.
Private Cloud, Public Cloud or Hiflex Cloud – your choice
Even with Cloud Computing every Hiflex MIS system remains a separate installation and of course can absolutely still be adapted individually and to the requirements and needs of each customer. Significant to Hiflex’s Cloud Computing solution is the fact that the system does not have to be installed in an external data center. Users have their choice of a ‘Public Cloud’ a ‘Hiflex Cloud’ or installing it in-house and locally as a ‘Private Cloud.’ For small to mid-sized companies the choice of a professional data center is very attractive because users can benefit from an infrastructure that includes security and failover protection usually only affordable to larger companies.
