Smart Cloud Computing

Smart Client Clouds, a true merger of the desktop and the Internet.  Rich Internet Applications, which look and perform just like Microsoft Office/Desktop applications, are deployed, automatically maintained, and can share real-time SQL Server Databases directly over a secure Internet that is powered by on-demand server resources and web services data.

You get the benefits of high performance desktop applications, which do not require re-training. Yet, the data used by the applications and the applications themselves are coordinated across a secure cloud.

Practical Computer Applications (PCA) is delivering on the promise of Smart Cloud Computing today. We offer intelligent provisioning of database server infrastructure and bandwidth resources, as well as the flexible coupling of third-party web services.  The result is a very stable, highly scalable and secure Smart Client Cloud environment that enables employees, partners and your customers to share and manage large amounts proprietary information, without the inflexibility and capital expenses common to many Intranet solutions.

The Smart Cloud: RIA + On-demand Server & Web Services Resources

Smart Client Clouds combine the benefits of Rich Internet Applications that look and perform just like Microsoft Office desktop applications.  They are deployed and automatically maintained.  They enable real-time MS SQL Server Database sharing directly over a secure Internet that is powered by on-demand server resources and web services data.

Smart Client Clouds, a true merger of the desktop and the Internet, are viewed by many to represent the next major wave in computing platforms.

Key Smart Cloud Computing Advantages

PCA has already built-out the Smart Cloud Computing value chain — our business relationships and technical integrations with RackSpace, web service providers, and 3rd-party Smart Client application controls enable rapid design and deployment of custom Smart Cloud solutions that offer Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.  Advantages that Practical can bring to bear on your Internet database application needs include:

  • Agility — rapidly and inexpensively re-provision server and bandwidth infrastructure resources, as needed
  • Low Cost — capital expenditures (CapEx) converted to operational expenditures (OpEx) that is continually adjusted to reflect actual usage
  • Device and Location Independence — employees, partners and customers able to connect and share data with one another, anywhere Internet services is available
  • Scalability — “On-demand” dynamic provisioning of database server resources, with reliable access to loosely-coupled web services
