Why the Cloud?
With all the talk of cloud computing today, it can be helpful to take a step back and really understand what the cloud is and why it matters to your business.
At the most basic level, the cloud is about instantly extending your IT infrastructure. This can provide your organization with many great benefits:
- You can be up and running fast. You bring products and services to market faster than the competition, and spend more time innovating and less time managing IT infrastructure.
- You instantly have global scale, So you have everything you need to support your business growth ready to go when you need it. This means you don’t have to worry about running out of capacity for things like file storage or scaling up your applications to support more employees or customers.
- You can run your operations more cost-effectively. With the cloud, you pay only for what you use, helping you save money as you grow your business.
- You don’t have to make capital investments in hardware, freeing up budget to spend on other business needs.
For most businesses, the cloud is not an “all or none” proposition. You need the flexibility to run some applications on-premises, while moving others to the cloud when it makes sense.
