Cloud Computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer.
Every business has a window of opportunity in which to capitalise. With traditional infrastructure it can take weeks to get a single server "deployment-ready" - costing your business valuable revenue as your competitors reach the market before you do. Cloud servers allow you to get your new product to market as soon as it's ready. Deploy what you need, when you need it.
Your time is best spent running your business, developing new products, innovation, and driving revenue. Cloud servers lets you shift your focus (and valuable IT resources) from the data center back to the business of "running of your organisation."
The cloud enables you to focus on running your business, instead of your IT. Use your resources to design and deploy innovative applications and services that will drive business results and differentiate you from the competition.
The cloud enables you to leverage the power and performance of enterprise-grade IT infrastructure without the capital expenditure of managing and maintaining your own hardware. Its pay-as-you-go model can also help you control costs.
Scaling on IT infrastructure can be extremely expensive, inefficient and it places much more pressure on accurate forecasting in growing companies. A part of Cloud computing's appeal is its flexibility in spend, usage and commitment.
Cloud computing is now a major marketplace strategy for any company aiming to deliver high quality services to customers over a variety of channels, especially those involving high levels of online traffic. But how does an organisation know if, and which, cloud is best?
