Public Cloud: Microsoft Azure, AWS and More

The number of cloud providers is growing almost daily, especially at the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) layer. Understanding what services to take from a Public Cloud provider as opposed to Private Cloud or in-house can be complex, and we are here to help design, install, embed and manage your cloud infrastructure.

Get the most from Public Cloud, let First Focus help you with the cloud infrastructure that best suits your organisation.


Types of Public Cloud Servers

SaaS (Software-as-a-Service)

Ready-to-use web-based applications with no setup or installation required – normally just a credit card! No access is available to the infrastructure or data at the back-end other than possibly through an API. Most organisations use Google Apps, Office 365, and a multitude of small web-based applications.

PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service)

Refers to cloud-based platform services that applications and data can be added on to. Examples include Azure SQL, Azure AI Platform, Google App Engine or

IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service)

The most similar to Private Cloud in that you can run your own servers and have full access at the operating system layer, without having manage hardware, storage or backups. Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are the biggest providers at this layer.

Luna Lu

Executive Assistant, CI Australia PTY LTD

CI Australia started working with First Focus in 2019. We were looking for an MSP that could deliver increased service quality with pricing that matched our budget. First Focus was originally in our top three preferred providers. What really helped them stand out was their proposal – there was no over- or under-scoping – and their reputation for good people and services.
