Cloud computing is driving a huge transformation globally among developers, users and enterprises in how they access information, design/develop/implement applications and manage cost and infrastructure. The merits of cloud computing are widely accepted and organizations are moving quickly to keep pace with the transformation.
Cloud technology enables the reusability of IT resources for storing large databases, developing and hosting complex applications, and expanding computational power and other services on demand. Eliminating or reducing investments on large-scale infrastructure and software, coupled with the pay-per-use model, significantly reduces IT costs.
Who Needs Managed Cloud Services?
Managed Cloud Services can be used by any organization with a Cloud Infrastructure, although companies most suited to Managed Cloud Services usually fall into one of the following two groups:
Organizations that do not possess the time or resources to assign a server manager or systems administrator, preferring to allocate their resources to their core business practices.
Companies with complex server requirements needing additional administrational support to maintain their sophisticated cloud infrastructure.
Why Cloud Computing
Cloud computing lets you right-size your compute, cloud storage, and network bandwidth – up, down, or off – whenever your business needs change and wherever you may need the resources geographically.
Deploying cloud services allows you to employ a pay-per-use charging model for your customers. They are able to access the resources as per requirement, and then pay for what they utilized, avoiding any waste of capacity.
Cloud server model involves numerous servers and network topologies, incorporated into a single design. The model has redundant configurations that provide impeccable fault tolerance and failover capabilities. Even if a data center goes offline, there is no disruption in services.
– Cloud computing providers have the scale to hire high-demand cloud security professionals, and the expertise and resources to implement best-practice controls, policies, and technologies for cloud security.
