We are a brand new IT company that provides Cloud based services and virtualisation of IT infrastructure/servers using VM Ware/Xen etc. We can help our clients to move physical servers or services onto virtualised infrastructure, either private or public or both (hybrid)
We are a small company, based in the UK and will mainly look to offer our service to UK based clients.
Even though most of our clients will run Windows for their Operating Systems, we use MacBook Pro's and iPhones. So we are big fans of Apple! This is reflected in our open minded approach to our work.
Our ethos is to work hard, give a great service (the type of service we would like to receive) and ensure that the customer gets what they want.
Cloud computing is the next stage in the Internet's evolution, providing the means through which everything, from computing power to computing infrastructure, applications, business processes to personal collaboration, can be delivered to you as a service wherever and whenever you need.
The “cloud” in cloud computing can be defined as the set of hardware, networks, storage, services, and interfaces that combine to deliver aspects of computing as a service. Cloud services include the delivery of software, infrastructure, and storage over the Internet (either as separate components or a complete platform) based on user demand.
This is for market of established companies that either have large data storage requirements, companies with multiple satellite offices or are looking to move some or all of their server infrastructure to a cloud, either private/public or a hybrid solution.
Cloud computing has four essential characteristics: elasticity and the ability to scale up and down, self-service provisioning and automatic deprovisioning, application programming interfaces (APIs), billing and metering of service usage in a pay-as-you-go model.
This flexibility is what is attracting individuals and businesses to move to the cloud.
For most companies, this will be a cutting edge service, unless they are used to using cloud services.
I need a logo to convey a quality provider of cloud based services. The company is Redwood Solutions Limited, using the trading name of Redwood Solutions. Our strap-line is "Our head's in the Cloud"
I'm after a logo that looks good in a single colour/monotone as well as colour and has a transparent background. The logo must scale well from very small as a twitter avatar to large for monitor backgrounds, advertising on boards etc.
As we are providing cloud based IT services, I'd like the logo to reflect that market.
As for the colours for the logo, I'd like either blue or purple (or both), but I'm open to suggestions.
Thanks for looking at my requirements.
