Make your data available everywhere you go and ensure your hard work is never lost.
Cloud computing is within your grasp. According to IBM there are three benefits of moving your data an applications to the cloud.
Users can scale services to fit their needs, customize applications and access cloud services from anywhere with an internet connection.
- Scalability – Cloud infrastructure scales on demand to support fluctuating workloads.
- Storage options – Users can choose public, private or hybrid storage offerings, depending on security needs and other considerations.
- Customization – Organizations can determine their level of control including software, platform, and infrastructure.
Enterprise users can get applications to market quickly, without worrying about underlying infrastructure costs or maintenance.
- Accessibility – Cloud-based applications and data are accessible from virtually any internet-connected device.
- Speed of data sharing – Having your server in the cloud enables users to enter their data in real time.
- Data security – hardware failures do not result in data loss because of networked backups.
- Savings on equipment – Cloud computing uses remote resources, saving organizations the cost of servers and other equipment.
- Pay structure – A “utility” pay structure means users only pay for the resources they use.
Cloud services give enterprises a competitive advantage by providing the most innovative technology available.
- Streamlined work – Cloud service providers (CSPs) manage underlying infrastructure, enabling organizations to focus on application development and other priorities.
- Regular updates – Service providers regularly update offerings to give users the most up-to-date technology.
- Collaboration – Worldwide access means teams can collaborate from widespread locations.
- Competitive edge – Organizations can move more nimbly than competitors who must devote IT resources to managing infrastructure.
