Cloud computing has become a time-proven technology that benefits businesses across all market segments and in all categories of IT functionality. Cloud applications can be hosted in a private cloud within the walls of an enterprise or on a third-party infrastructure; a third option is a “hybrid cloud,” where some functionality remains within the confines of a corporate data center and other functions are hosted off-site.
Advantages of Cloud Computing
Regardless of the cloud structure you choose, there are numerous advantages to using cloud technology:
- Scalability – scalable software grows as you grow
- Accessibility – cloud software functions are available to authorized users from anywhere
- Sharing – the same information is readily available to all users, making collaboration easier
- Mobility – remote users have real-time access through internet-enabled devices like laptops, smartphones, and tablets
Cloud Computing Flexibility
The aforementioned advantages provide businesses with the flexibility they need to provide essential services to their internal staff, vendors, and customers. In addition to improving accessibility and mobility, there are also vast improvements for controlling IT expenses and responsiveness.
In the past, if traditional data centers needed to increase storage or processing capacity, it was necessary to invest considerable money and time for upgrading – not to mention the need for extra technical contractors to perform the modifications.
Cloud Computing Scalability
Cloud computing environments enable businesses to add processing or storage capacity quickly and dynamically. Not only will you not experience downtime, cloud computing is frequently a pay-as-you-grow concept, so your financial investments are limited to purchasing exactly what you need and nothing more.
