cloud computing

Cloud computing provides many companies with the ability to reduce IT infrastructure costs while improving productivity and responsiveness.  In doing so it allows businesses to concentrate more on getting results instead of monitoring and maintaining the infrastructure that supports critical business applications.

Cloud revenue is expected to increase significantly within the next two years as more and more businesses embrace the benefits of managing IT in the Cloud.

Here are just a few of the reasons why so many businesses are heading over to the Cloud:

Reduced Hardware and Maintenance Costs

Cloud hosting services can be delivered in increments on an “as needed” basis.  The result is reduced hardware and maintenance costs since the cloud service provider oversees all operational aspects of the underlying infrastructure.  If the company opts to run onsite servers as a private cloud this increases the efficiency and utilisation of existing IT infrastructure.

Flexibility and Scalability

A cloud-hosted environment is scalable and offers the flexibility to add business applications as needed. It gives you the ability to react faster to the needs of your business while driving greater operational efficiencies.

Impact of scalability on managed data centres.

Because of the highly scalable nature of cloud computing, many businesses are now relying on managed data centres where there are cloud experts trained in maintaining and scaling shared private and hybrid clouds. Cloud computing allows for quick and easy allocation of resources in a monitored environment where overloading is never a concern as long as the system is managed properly.

Reduced Energy Consumption

There are much greener aspects to the Cloud Computing infrastructure. Cloud computing provides an infrastructure that reduces energy consumption while also reducing emissions from cooling components which are harmful to the environment.

Increased ROI

Managing IT in the cloud means you are eliminating large investments in infrastructure in exchange for reduced recurring expenses over a longer period of time. This increases return on investment since the financial resources can be used toward your marketing initiatives thus increasing the company’s profit margin.

From infrastructure to mobility, virtualisation, and on-demand applications, the significance of Cloud Computing is making its presence known throughout the entire IT ecosystem. Whilst businesses continue to make infrastructure choices, either with or without Cloud capabilities, Cloud solutions will continue to offer competitive advantages over traditional solutions.
