WHAT IS THE CLOUD?
The cloud is a metaphor for the internet. Cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the internet instead of through a local network, or what is called on-premise today.
WHAT ARE TYPES OF THE CLOUD?
There are three major types of cloud computing, each providing benefits for unique business requirements:
- Public – multiple companies share the same cloud infrastructure with securely isolated data. This service is highly scalable and requires no infrastructure purchase.
- Private – infrastructure used solely by one organization. This option provides the most control over resources with company-owned equipment in a data center.
- Hybrid – a blend of two or more cloud types that are individual, but connected. Hybrid computing increases deployment flexibility and maintains resource control.
HOW CAN THE CLOUD BENEFIT MY BUSINESS?
Whether it’s public, private, or hybrid cloud, storing and accessing data and programs over the internet means getting more uptime with less corporate risk.
Migrating to the cloud means businesses no longer have to pay to build IT infrastructure that may not even be utilized. The cloud provides on-demand, hyper-scalable solutions that enable companies to scale as they grow.
In addition to capital savings on hardware, cloud services save on operating costs to maintain IT infrastructure, and put maintenance in the hands of specialized experts who are on-call and available 24/7.
Moving away from hardware also increases cash flow, and removes financial risk associated with unexpected failure or disaster. By replicating local data offsite, companies can be assured that they’re in good standing in the case of any disaster.
