7 Benefits of Going Cloud

1. Accessibility

A significant percentage of companies affirm that they are unable to provide ubiquitous access to corporate information and systems to their employees and partners. Having solutions deployed in the Cloud can help significantly remove these barriers and enable workers to access what they need anywhere, anytime.

2. Security

Cloud vendors have the large scale to maintain the strongest security measures and keep the systems patched to the latest levels and monitored 24 hours a day. This is something that is very difficult and expensive to do on-premise by an individual company due to the sheer cost of human and technical resources to keep up with this massive work.

3. Scalability

Cloud servers can be configured to provide variable levels of performance thanks to virtualized environments. The benefit is that you can use the full power of machines only when needed, being able to cope with peak times, for example, Black Friday in the case of an e-commerce company.

4. Cost-saving

Cloud servers allow you to scale resources up or down automatically, depending on demand, so that they’re not paying for idle infrastructure costs when demand is low. On top of that, with managed servers you have a lower TCO due to less man-hours spent in maintaining and monitoring the infrastructure. There is also the possibility of usage commitment for machines that must always be on or preemptible machines for test and non-critical servers which may help achieve further cost reductions.

5 . Flexibility

With a Cloud Native approach you can deploy tailored applications with a faster time to market and a greater flexibility in comparison with standard solutions. This can be achieved by making use of cloud accelerators and services. The apps implemented in such a way are easy to extend and modify, therefore with a very high degree of flexibility and customization, secure and reliable by design. With the Cloud, we can customize a solution that suits your needs and grows as your needs grow

6. Sustainability

The economies of scale of cloud vendor server farms mean that significant energy savings can be achieved. Investing in Cloud vs physical machines is surely not only a cost savings for your company in terms of energy but also less impactful to the environment. Cloud is an eco-friendly and sustainable solution in comparison with traditional servers.

7. Reliability

Having machines in the Cloud allows you to maintain multiple backup servers, even in different regions. This helps intrinsically with disaster recovery procedures, which are difficult and expensive to cover with a traditional approach. You can also have fallback servers to service your customers and users achieving near 100% uptime for your applications.
