Cloud computing is becoming more and more popular at an incredible rate. This transfer of the old system to the new system is not completely beyond the general trend. Those businesses that do not catch up the new trend will face the risk of being eliminated. How does cloud computing give benefits to companies?
With cloud computing, businesses can minimize or completely cut back on their initial investment because they do not need a data center in place (no server installation, hardware, software, depreciation, etc.) In addition, the power used in server operation and cooling is reduced, this contributes to increase environmental friendliness.
By minimizing capital investment, it does not require the installation and maintenance of onsite data centers, the cost can be spent on other projects needed, and the enterprise will have more time to focus on main business activities.
Access Anywhere, Anytime
Data is easily stored, downloaded, recovered, or processed with just a few clicks. Users can access their account on the go, 24/7, through any device, anywhere in the world as long as you are still connected to the internet. After all, all upgrades and updates are done automatically, thus saving a lot of time and effort to maintain the system, significantly reducing the workload for the IT team.
Ability To Change Endlessly
The application of cloud computing is extremely rich, will usually be categorized according to the features and belongs to one of three types of services:
- Software as a Service (SaaS)
- Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
- Platform as a Service (PaaS)
Users also have the option to create their own private cloud, hybrid or hybrid model, or optionally decide on the location of your virtual data center. Cloud computing brings countless applications, endlessly varying according to the budget of the business.
In addition to endless possibilities, cloud computing can adapt to any change. For example, businesses can choose to increase the number of site visitors from 2,000 to 10,000 per day during the Christmas promotion.
In another example, businesses are free to switch from a private network to an integrated network, or temporarily expand their storage capacity. Cloud computing can do everything in a smooth way.
Sustainable Cooperation, No Disruption
A typical situation is that you are disoriented when tracking a project. The reason is that after repeatedly sending the file back and forth, the discussion becomes chaotic, so many files have been modified so that no one recognizes the finished product.
With cloud computing, the file is centrally stored and accessible anywhere, creating a virtual space where everyone directly discusses, shares a file and receives instant feedback. This makes work productivity significantly improved, minimizing trouble, increasing customer satisfaction and more.
As mentioned above, one of the concerns when using cloud computing is information security. Service providers must always ensure that the protection system is constantly updated and at the same time with all new features through strict verification. All cloud activities will be monitored and monitored by third parties on a regular basis to ensure that safety standards are met.
