Cloud computing has been a helpful resource for companies in various aspects of their business and operations. Instead of buying, owning, and maintaining physical data servers, businesses can just avail a cloud technology or computing power, databases, from an on-demand provider.
What is cloud computing?
Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services over the internet via cloud. Cloud computing services include servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, and intelligence. It is an on-demand service offered by cloud service providers divided on three categories: infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and software as a service (SaaS).
Businesses can take advantage of the offer of these providers of faster innovation, flexible resources, and scale. It helps companies lower operating costs, and scale the business, and efficiently run your infrastructure.
Benefits of cloud computing
Cloud computing eliminates the expensive costs of buying your company’s hardware and software, setting up on-site data centres, and spending for round-the-clock power and cooling. Companies also save expenses from hiring in-house IT experts for your data centres because it will be done by the cloud service provider.
Agility and Performance
Cloud computing enables companies to deploy services quickly in just a few clicks. They can deploy resources required for your system within fewer minutes. The cloud technology gives access to a broad range of technologies so companies can innovate and build faster. This gives businesses the freedom to experiment and test new ideas to improve customer experiences.
Within minutes, businesses can deploy their services to new geographic regions and deploy globally. Business can deploy their applications in multiple physical locations simultaneously in a matter of minutes which helps global consumers, especially when companies put their applications closer to their market.
Reliability and Security
Data backup, disaster recovery and business continuity is easier with cloud computing. It is also less expensive because data can be mirrored at several redundant sites from the cloud provider’s network.
Many cloud service providers have a broad set of policies, technologies, and controls which allows a better security structure to protect your data, applications, and infrastructure from potential hacking and attacks. With cybersecurity as a technological concern in recent years, cloud providers are now implementing more strict policies than ever.
