  • Understanding the Benefits of Cloud Computing

    Cloud computing is a significant evolution thats changing the way we think about how we deliver our

    computational infrastructure to end users. One can define cloud computing as a pay-per-use model for

    allowing on-demand access to consistent and configurable resources that can be rapidly provisioned and

    released with minimal consumer involvement in terms of management. Using a cloud computing

    environment generally requires you to send data over the Internet and store it on a third-party system.

    Cloud computing offers several advantages by allowing you to use services that include infrastructure,

    applications, and storage space for a nominal fee. These services are created and offered by the cloud

    service provider, and there is no need to purchase additional infrastructure. Most cloud solutions tend to

    be greener, as some of the infrastructure is co hosted and shared, some of the applications and solutions

    are fully virtualized and other design changes make the whole offering more efficient and thus greener.

    Some of the other benefits include

    Remote Accessibility

    There is no restriction to a specific location with cloud computing. Secure remote access is possible from

    anywhere with the help of a ID and password.

    Easy Growth

    Owing to the flexibility of cloud computing, it is possible to access more resources to expand without

    investing in extra infrastructure. Merely informing the cloud provider will suffice. This is one of the best

    advantages as cloud computing facilitates easy re-location of resources.

    Flexible

    Cloud computing is a fully scalable and flexible cloud solution. Compared to locally hosted applications a

    cloud solution offers flexibility and reach that is very compelling. This feature can be the sole reason for

    an organization to move into the cloud.

    Security

    Cloud computing solutions are more secure than the traditional business models. They allow real-time

    backup which results in less data loss. In the event of an outage, customers can use the backup servers

    that sync with the main ones. This results in the business getting maximum uptime without any loss of

    data during the transitions.

  • Although the there are many benefits to a cloud solution, it is necessary to understand and the weigh the

    options before choosing a solution. Opt for a cloud service delivery solution that is engineered for the

    point-of-delivery, which can also provide a set of application Security, availability, acceleration,

    virtualization and integration capabilities that are designed to keep traffic moving smoothly.
