Why Move to the Cloud?
Moving to the cloud can benefit companies operating in any industry. There are a number of reasons you should move to the cloud, including the following:
Typically, cloud-based data storage and software solutions are cheaper than maintaining locally-data or software. Scalability allows businesses to purchase only the resources they need at a given point and adjust as they grow.
Running multiple platforms and storing data in disparate locations can create inefficiencies that increase costs. Cloud-based data and software solutions integrate operations into a single platform that makes work easier.
Cloud hosting services are specialists in their area and understand that their business-model depends on providing their clients with top-notch security. Migrating to the cloud allows enterprise to rely on the expertise of their hosting provider and eliminates the need for significant investment into private server security.
Unless you are in the data center or hosting business, you should not be in the business of data center operations. Migrating your data, applications and, infrastructure to the cloud allows you to focus on what your businesses really is about.
Your company may already be working with a remote hosting provider. In a typical hosting arrangement you are still required to maintain separate environments. With Cloud based infrastructure these environments can be brought on line only when needed. Your production environment can temporarily scale up to meet increased demand. The ability to operate only what you need, when you need yields cost savings for your business
