Is Your Business Ready for the Cloud?

Is Your Business Ready for the Cloud?

In the decade from 2010 to 2020, cloud usage increased by a whopping 635% according to a study from CloudZero. The adoption of cloud services is expected to continue rising throughout the current decade at the same rate! There are good reasons for this surge. There are many advantages to cloud computing. Here are a few advantages:

1) On-demand Self Service
You get the cloud resources you need when you need them. Businesses do not have to wait for added services in many cloud environments as the resources are there ready to be allocated.

2) Shared Resource Pooling
Shared resources means that a failure of any single component or server should not take down your operation. Resources are pooled and distributed to form a redundant architecture and higher availability.

3) Rapid Elasticity
Cloud providers can quickly adjust the amount of computational power and resources to meet your needs. Growing ten-fold in a short period is not a problem with most cloud environments.

4) Measured Service
Much like a utility bill, businesses are charged for the services they use in a true cloud model. The fewer resources you use, the less you pay. The more you use the more you pay.

5) Broad Network Access
Cloud networks are broadly available via the Internet through secure channels anywhere.

Layer on to this the prospect of not needing to maintain, power and cool that on-premise hardware that has been replaced by the cloud, it can be an attractive solution for many businesses as they evaluate the direction of the technology infrastructure.

Security is always a necessary conversation to have when talking about the cloud. It is important to note that not all clouds are created equally, and questions should be asked. Where is my data stored? How is it backed up? How is it secured? These are important questions that a business needs comfortable answers to.
