The world is
transforming at a pace faster than ever and so is cloud computing. The speed at
which cloud is expanding is unbelievable. In around the next three years,
almost 90% of the businesses will migrate to the cloud, as a survey report
Here is a list of 7
reasons on why you should migrate your business to cloud.
Everyone wants to save expenses
whether it’s an enterprise or a startup. There
is a common myth around the corner that migrating to cloud computing might be a
costly affair. Instead, it is cheaper to run a business on the cloud. Many
of the businesses end up paying for services which they don’t even need or
require. For e.g. If you want to eat just a sandwich, then why should you pay
for the whole Combo? AWS cloud offers this pay as you operate services where
you will pay only for the service you want. Hence it will save you cost, time,
resource, energy for buying and maintaining Infrastructure, Licenses, manpower,
energy and space.
Many of the businesses
struggle to believe that Cloud is actually more secure when it comes to data
storage, cloud companies are constantly upgrading and protecting data from
potential hackers, viruses, ransomware, etc. There are options of data backup,
version control and user/data logs available at very easy and economical rates.
Thus if we were to compare security on-site v/s cloud, then if configured
correctly cloud would be more secured comparatively.
The biggest problem World is facing today is
of Carbon Footprint. One cannot just save the nature by writing slogans about
reducing footprint. It has to be reflected by actions. By using cloud
computing, the companies are sharing the resources and hence are helping to
save the environment from carbon footprint. Most of the cloud companies are
using 100% renewable power and running all data centers out of them.
Humans are not reliable
when one has to keep something intact for 24×7. Many times it is seen that the
data gets lost because no one was there to take care of the servers. But cloud,
on the other hand, is highly reliable. Major Fortune 500 are on the cloud. As
the big sharks like Amazon, Microsoft and Google are into the business, it
becomes easier to trust and believe in cloud technology.
Flexibility and Mobility
Cloud is very flexible
as it allows change of plan according to the usage. When the traffic is low,
one can choose a low-cost plan and when the traffic gets increased then the
plan can be shifted to a moderate cost plan. This type of flexibility makes it
easier for startups who are in their initial phase to reduce infrastructure
cost by offering IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service).Cloud provides a lot of
mobility by allowing to access your server with the help of a smartphone. A
great thing, isn’t it?
Whenever there is a
change in technology or some updating has to be done to keep the servers
running, one has to request and roam around the system engineers all day. And
with high demand, managing them is not an easy task. So to avoid all this, one
should migrate his whole business on the cloud. Cloud will automatically
provide features which are newly arrived and keeps the system updated for you.
Doing this will save your maintenance cost and also provides automation to the
Many of the large companies are processing so
much of data and at such a speed that they can’t even afford a blackout of even
5 seconds. No matter how hard we try, the process which includes human will
have errors no matter what. What if the power gets cut? The whole of the company’s reputation gets on
stake. Cloud provides instant backup solution and never goes offline. Even when
rarely if the cloud goes down, you can instantly back up all the data so that
you keep moving.
