Today everyone is talking about cloud! Cloud Technology, Cloud Solution, Data Storage, Data Security are the most buzzing words. What does Cloud Technology mean and how cloud technology solutions can benefit the business?
Let's first talk about what is cloud technology. Cloud technology or Cloud computing may be called as computing that is based entirely on the internet. Cloud computing is the delivery of on-demand computing resources over the internet on a pay-for-use basis.Using cloud technology, users are able to access software and applications from anywhere, the computer programs are being hosted by an outside party and reside in the cloud. So the users do not have to worry about things such as storage and power, they can simply enjoy the end result. As in the past, where people needed to run programs or applications from software which would be downloaded from a server or a physical computer, cloud computing services help them to access those applications through the medium of internet.
Today, more and more companies are moving towards cloud. Ever wondered why so many businesses are moving towards it? It is simply because there are several advantages of cloud computing. Let's have a look at these top 10 advantages of cloud computing-1. Saves money and has less cost :-
There are no capital expenditure, no huge costs of hardware in cloud computing. One has to pay as per operation & use and enjoy the model based on your subscription plan.One of the best parts of the cloud is that it actually saves you money in the long run. You don’t have to hire a tech support team to fix server issues.2. Always-on availability 24x7 :-
Most of the cloud providers are truly reliable in offering their services. The users can get onto the applications needed basically from anywhere. Some of the applications even function off-line. Now forgetting an important file at work, flash drive didn’t properly save it or maybe your email to yourself never went through, you don’t have to worry about these things if you’re on the cloud.3. Flexibility :-
Cloud technology offers flexible facility that can be turned up, down or off depending upon circumstances. For example, a sales or a marketing of product promotion might be wildly popular, and capacity can be added quickly to avoid crashing servers and losing sales and marketing. When the sales and marketing is over, capacity can shrink to reduce costs.4. Automatic updates on softwares/ Fresh softwares :-
In contrast to home grown or purchased software that might have major new releases only once a year or so and take significant time to roll out, with cloud technology, the server suppliers regularly update your software including the updates on security, so that you do not have to worry about software updates & maintaining system.5. Data Security and accessibility :-
When any sensitive data is lost, cloud technology offers great security. Even if your system crashes, the data can be easily accessed as it is stored in the system. You can even remotely wipe out data from the lost machines for avoiding it getting in the wrong hands. You never have to worry about losing critical data and business applications because of a natural disaster or full-on computer meltdown.6. Easy Collaboration :-
Cloud technology provides easy collaboration by allowing dispersed groups of people to meet virtually and easily share information in real time and via shared storage.7. Easy to control and manage the documents :-
Earlier users needed to send files in and out as the email attachments for being worked on by a single user at one time which could also end up messing of contrary titles, formats, and file content. Moving to cloud computing and technology has facilitated central file storage.8.Improved mobility and a better work life balance for employees :-
Data and applications are available to employees no matter where they are in the world. Workers can take their work anywhere via smart phones and tablets—roaming through a retail store to check customers out, visiting customers in their homes or offices, working in the field or at a plant, etc. Happy employees makes a better workplace.9.Reduces carbon footprint :-
Cloud technology requires less physical servers. This allows companies to cut back their data centers (or completely get rid of them). Less servers means less resources used. Organizations utilize only the amount of resources they need.10. Less operational issues :-
Since the cloud runs on its own servers through a Cloud Technology company whose job is to make the cloud functional and bug-free, it’s usually a whole lot more reliable than your own, on-location server. In case of any bug, the company that runs your cloud network looks for a fix. If this was your remote server, you’d have to file a claim with tech support and have the department send someone down to look at it and this would waste lot of time and energy.11.
