<ul><li><p>Understanding the Benefits of Cloud Computing </p><p>Cloud computing is a significant evolution thats changing the way we think about how we deliver our </p><p>computational infrastructure to end users. One can define cloud computing as a pay-per-use model for </p><p>allowing on-demand access to consistent and configurable resources that can be rapidly provisioned and </p><p>released with minimal consumer involvement in terms of management. Using a cloud computing </p><p>environment generally requires you to send data over the Internet and store it on a third-party system. </p><p>Cloud computing offers several advantages by allowing you to use services that include infrastructure, </p><p>applications, and storage space for a nominal fee. These services are created and offered by the cloud </p><p>service provider, and there is no need to purchase additional infrastructure. Most cloud solutions tend to </p><p>be greener, as some of the infrastructure is co hosted and shared, some of the applications and solutions </p><p>are fully virtualized and other design changes make the whole offering more efficient and thus greener. </p><p>Some of the other benefits include </p><p> Remote Accessibility </p><p>There is no restriction to a specific location with cloud computing. Secure remote access is possible from </p><p>anywhere with the help of a ID and password. </p><p> Easy Growth </p><p>Owing to the flexibility of cloud computing, it is possible to access more resources to expand without </p><p>investing in extra infrastructure. Merely informing the cloud provider will suffice. This is one of the best </p><p>advantages as cloud computing facilitates easy re-location of resources. </p><p> Flexible </p><p>Cloud computing is a fully scalable and flexible cloud solution. Compared to locally hosted applications a </p><p>cloud solution offers flexibility and reach that is very compelling. This feature can be the sole reason for </p><p>an organization to move into the cloud. </p><p> Security </p><p>Cloud computing solutions are more secure than the traditional business models. They allow real-time </p><p>backup which results in less data loss. In the event of an outage, customers can use the backup servers </p><p>that sync with the main ones. This results in the business getting maximum uptime without any loss of </p><p>data during the transitions. </p></li><li><p> Although the there are many benefits to a cloud solution, it is necessary to understand and the weigh the </p><p>options before choosing a solution. Opt for a cloud service delivery solution that is engineered for the </p><p>point-of-delivery, which can also provide a set of application Security, availability, acceleration, </p><p>virtualization and integration capabilities that are designed to keep traffic moving smoothly. </p><p>Also read on - Data Center Modernization, Remote Desktop </p></li></ul>
