Today’s IT infrastructures have become very expensive to house locally and to maintain. With equipment shelf life averaging 3 years, equipment is replaced and expensive recurring cost continues to take away from the bottom line.
Cloud computing can take your business to the next level by meeting higher security, 100% up-time and 100% accessibility where local environments can’t. In addition, secure connections to your cloud environment can be access from anywhere in the world.
Cloud computing is your answer to disaster recovery. Most buildings do not have their own power generation systems as a backup power source. In case of a power disruption your global business cannot connect to your environment. A good cloud provider will be hosting services at a prominent data center and not in their local environment. Prominent Data Centers will have their uninterruptible power sources (UPS) on a switch which will automatically switch its power to a backup power generation source in case the local power grid goes down. The Prominent Data Center will be connected to an internet service provider (ISP) with a strong disaster recovery plan enabling a connection during a natural disaster.
The major companies today have moved to cloud environments for less cost, better disaster recovery solutions and better global performance. Companies who offer software solutions have also moved into the cloud for the same reasons (Adobe Creative Cloud, Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce Cloud and Netsuite to name a few). Cloud computing has become the preferred solution for many large enterprise companies such as Amazon and Google.
The number one reason companies are not moving to the cloud today is the merely due to security concerns. Many IT companies providing cloud services have their clouds setup in local environments at their offices. Knowing where your data is being stored is important. Being able to go in and see the facility hosting your cloud service is vital to your data security. Some Cloud solution providers are taking 3rd party cloud services to host your cloud environment. Those 3rd party solutions are commonly located in other countries sending your data to areas unknown. A good cloud solution provider will have your cloud environment located in a data center in your region and can offer you a tour of the facility.
