Why move to the cloud? What are the benefits of cloud computing?
What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud Computing is the delivery
of computing resources on-demand
(including databases, servers, platforms, infrastructure, storage,
applications, and many more.) over the Internet. In Cloud computing you pay only for what you need.
Data security in cloud is more typical than in a
traditional data center, because data is stored in different machines like
Personal Computer’s, servers, and different mobile devices. However cloud
providers can help you to secure any infrastructure you want in the cloud
environment, including storage ,compute, database and networking resources. You
just need to secure your access credentials, your applications, and the
underlying operating system.
Cloud computing is a cost-effective solution for storing big
amounts of data on the Internet. The traditional IT infrastructure includes,
runtimes applications, integration, databases, security, servers, virtualization,
storage, networking, and many more. Instead of maintaining all of this by
yourself, with associated operations and maintenance expenditure, you can rely
on a cloud provider to handle O&M for you, allowing you to focus on your
core business. You put everything to the cloud, and the cloud provider will
handle the rest .
- Unlimited Storage Space
When you store data on the cloud it gives you virtually
unlimited storage capacity, so you don’t have to worry about running out of
storage space in a cloud environment. Because you aren’t managing the physical
storage equipment by yourself, you don’t have to estimate your future needs
either: your on-cloud storage seamlessly grows to meet demand. With cloud
computing, you can access as much as you need, and scale according to your requirements.
Scalability & Speed
If you suddenly need more computing power to your
applications or website, you can scale up quickly and easily: almost instantly.
With the scalability of cloud computing, when you face a sudden traffic peak, you can automatically
allocate more compute resources to keep your website or application stable and
responsive. If the physical server which hosts your application experiences an
error, your applications will be migrated to another working server with no
intervention on your part.
When you face a sudden change in traffic, you may need more resources to
help you handle the heavy demand placed on your application. Cloud computing allows
you to scale up quickly: you don’t have order and provision physical equipment,
which is slow and complex. As your demands drop, you can scale your
infrastructure again to meet actual demand: there is no need to pay for
resources you don’t require. This is one of cloud computing’s key advantages:
elasticity. You use (and pay for) only what you require/need.
- Go Global in Minutes
With cloud computing you can deploy your website or
application in multiple regions around the world by just a few clicks. While
you are reducing costs for infrastructure deployment, your customers have a
better experience with lower latency.
- Backup and Recovery
Cloud computing allows you store data across multiple regions for reliability and redundancy.
Most providers support data recovery almost in real time to ensure high
availability of your data.
