One of the biggest questions many businesses face today is whether or not to adopt cloud-based IT services. It would not be an exaggeration to state that the cloud has already begun revolutionising how business works, and how it meets its computing needs. Upgrading to cloud technologies enables platform efficiencies, operational flexibility and business scalability to upraise business to next level.
For example: Cloud Accelerators use CDN (Content Delivery Network) to get content to users as fast as possible.
Cloud gives standardization of technology, ease for software licenses, automated software-LDC right away from infrastructure to coding and managing also providing open-source adoption opportunity. Whether your company is a start-up or a multinational, the cloud’s flexibility makes it the perfect solution to your data requirements.
Benefits of Cloud Computing:
- ScalableCloud infrastructure scales on demand accordingly to support fluctuating workloads.
- Cost ReductionPay structure is accordingly for the resources used.
- Go live SoonGives speed to market as developing in cloud enables users to get their applications live quickly.
- Accessibility Cloud based applications and data are accessible virtually from any part of the world via internet connection.
- Data SecurityHardware failures don’t result in data loss due to the networked backups across different regions. Encryption and API keys also helps in data security.
Cloud Computing Offerings:
- Infrastructure as a service(Iaas): When it comes to IaaS, using existing infrastructure on pay-as-you-go pricing seems to be obvious choice for enterprises which helps in saving the cost of investing to procure, manage and maintain an IT infrastructure.
- Platform as a service(Paas):Enterprises move to PaaS for cost-reduction while also seeking to speed up development on ready-to-use platform to deploy heavy fluctuating workload applications.
- Software as a service (SaaS):With SaaS, cloud providers host and manage the software application and underlying infrastructure and handle any maintenance, like software upgrades and security patching. Users connect to the application over the Internet, usually with a web browser on their phone, tablet or PC.
