The world is transforming at a pace faster than ever and so is cloud computing. The speed at which cloud is expanding is unbelievable. In around the next three years, almost 90% of the businesses will migrate to the cloud, as a survey report said.
Here is a list of 7 reasons on why you should migrate your business to cloud.
Everyone wants to save expenses whether it’s an enterprise or a startup. There is a common myth around the corner that migrating to cloud computing might be a costly affair. Instead, it is cheaper to run a business on the cloud. Many of the businesses end up paying for services which they don’t even need or require. For e.g. If you want to eat just a sandwich, then why should you pay for the whole Combo? AWS cloud offers this pay as you operate services where you will pay only for the service you want. Hence it will save you cost, time, resource, energy for buying and maintaining Infrastructure, Licenses, manpower, energy and space.
Many of the businesses struggle to believe that Cloud is actually more secure when it comes to data storage, cloud companies are constantly upgrading and protecting data from potential hackers, viruses, ransomware, etc. There are options of data backup, version control and user/data logs available at very easy and economical rates. Thus if we were to compare security on-site v/s cloud, then if configured correctly cloud would be more secured comparatively.
The biggest problem World is facing today is of Carbon Footprint. One cannot just save the nature by writing slogans about reducing footprint. It has to be reflected by actions. By using cloud computing, the companies are sharing the resources and hence are helping to save the environment from carbon footprint. Most of the cloud companies are using 100% renewable power and running all data centers out of them.
Humans are not reliable when one has to keep something intact for 24×7. Many times it is seen that the data gets lost because no one was there to take care of the servers. But cloud, on the other hand, is highly reliable. Major Fortune 500 are on the cloud. As the big sharks like Amazon, Microsoft and Google are into the business, it becomes easier to trust and believe in cloud technology.
Flexibility and Mobility
Cloud is very flexible as it allows change of plan according to the usage. When the traffic is low, one can choose a low-cost plan and when the traffic gets increased then the plan can be shifted to a moderate cost plan. This type of flexibility makes it easier for startups who are in their initial phase to reduce infrastructure cost by offering IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service).Cloud provides a lot of mobility by allowing to access your server with the help of a smartphone. A great thing, isn’t it?
Automation and Maintenance
Whenever there is a change in technology or some updating has to be done to keep the servers running, one has to request and roam around the system engineers all day. And with high demand, managing them is not an easy task. So to avoid all this, one should migrate his whole business on the cloud. Cloud will automatically provide features which are newly arrived and keeps the system updated for you. Doing this will save your maintenance cost and also provides automation to the system.
Many of the large companies are processing so much of data and at such a speed that they can’t even afford a blackout of even 5 seconds. No matter how hard we try, the process which includes human will have errors no matter what. What if the power gets cut? The whole of the company’s reputation gets on stake. Cloud provides instant backup solution and never goes offline. Even when rarely if the cloud goes down, you can instantly back up all the data so that you keep moving.
