New Trend: Cloud Infrastructure. What are the advantages of the system and why should it be used?
One of the most popular technologies in the modern world is cloud technologies.
Thousands of companies are now working on IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service) models, which allow them to rent the necessary equipment and software as a service. Let’s consider the first model in more detail.
The emergence of the IaaS model has opened up wide opportunities for businesses, allowing companies to reduce IT infrastructure costs. If a company suddenly feels the need for hardware, it can use cloud resources, instead of spending money on new expensive equipment. For example, you can rent such important elements of IT infrastructure like servers, data warehouses, CRM systems, project management systems, virtual PBX, any application software and other necessary components.
In addition to the main financial benefits, cloud infrastructure give companies other tangible benefits:
Ready-made services. By renting the elements of IT infrastructure, your company has the opportunity to get ready-made workable systems. As a customer, you don’t need to think about purchasing hardware or software. You will immediately receive a ready-made package of services with the necessary functions.
Safety and reliability. When creating a cloud infrastructure, all information is consolidated, and the efficiency of all processes is monitored by highly qualified specialists. Accordingly, it guarantees the smooth operation of the infrastructure, even in force majeure cases.
Time. Thanks to this service, you can no longer worry about various technical issues, but concentrate fully on your business. Instead of thinking about supporting the infrastructure and securing the network, you can work on attracting new customers, increasing their loyalty or other important business issues.
Flexibility in the use of the resource. When using cloud infrastructure, one can add the necessary functions within minutes. This allows you to quickly expand the infrastructure of the company, without increasing IT staff.
Location independence and uninterrupted 24/7 service. If you change the address of the company, you do not need to think about reinstalling and configuring the cloud infrastructure. Access to cloud resources will be available to you around the clock from anywhere in the world – from home, office or hotel.
Fault tolerance. Cloud infrastructure provides a high degree of data protection and resiliency of IT services. In fact, the system recovery time after unplanned downtime is reduced by 85%.
Electricity savings. You will save not only on hardware but also on electricity. As the number of physical servers decreases, cooling and power costs are reduced.
As you can see, cloud infrastructure compared to the traditional one offers much better offers. From the consumer’s point of view, this can significantly reduce financial costs, reduce the risk of disability, and ensure guaranteed safety and reliability of the system. That’s why it is so popular around the world. But before you start migrating your infrastructure to the cloud, analyze your software and consult with experts for achieving effective results.
