Cloud computing is an emerging trend that provides rapid access to dynamically scalable and virtualised IT resources. Along with the new cloud management techniques, it enables web hosting service providers to deliver an efficient self-service approach to their consumer. Since the provisioning and allocation of resources of services is done on demand, service providers can provide unlimited scalability with extremely high quality standard with very efficient performance. Additionally it simultaneously implements accelerated innovation at very low cost. In other words, using a cloud-based approach can free you to reap immediate benefits of a specific technology instead of having to spend time, resources, and money focusing on how to implement it.
Manage your data and up-time
Cloud computing can help your organization implement a cost-effective solution to manage and store your data. It can also provide backup and recovery solutions to get better protection against downtime and data loss. With Cloud computing your applications and services are made independent of the underlying hardware or infra-structure, making them highly flexible and scalable. This approach can allow organizations to think beyond software, hardware implementations or maintenance. It also saves time and expenses thud, reducing the entire IT operations and management expenses. And as these services are built and provided using a highly capable, resource rich infrastructure with proven security capabilities has allowed organizations to manage their IT easily and efficiently allowing to reduce the response time. These resources can be deployed quickly with functionalities to scale resources up and down without downtimes.
Cloud-based business resilience strategy
One of the major causes of data loss is due to unpredictable occurrences, such as hardware problems, software corruption or human errors. But to avoid these problems and to maintain business availability, your IT operations need to be prepared for all sorts of outages or for all types of devices, at any given point of time. Even after having a recovery plans to prevent such outages, there are circumstances where they all fail, causing heavy cost of process disruption or downtime resulting in lost data and productivity. This can further have significant and long lasting effect on your business. A highly efficient and redundant approach is essential to manage your IT needs which can only be provided with robust Cloud services.
Cloud, if deployed or bought from the correct provider, can increase the performance of your IT. It can pay back well if calculated against the cost involved in managing IT and recovery of data. Initial ROI to invest in cloud may look unreal though Cloud would compensate by reducing the long term IT management expenses.
