Benefits of Cloud Computing


Cloud Computing has following benefits:-

  • Reduced Cost- Cloud technology is paid incrementally, saving organizations money.
  • Increased Storage - Organizations can store more data than on private computer systems.
  • Highly Automated - No longer do IT personnel need to worry about keeping software up to date.
  • Flexibility- Cloud computing offers much more flexibility than past computing methods.
  • More Mobility- Employees can access information wherever they are, rather than having to remain at their desks.

* Allows IT to Shift Focus-No longer having to worry about constant server updates and other computing issues, organizations will be free to concentrate on innovation.

* Scalability-Cloud-computing follows a utility model in which service costs are based on consumption, companies pay for only what they use. Therefore, organizations that anticipate an enormous uptick in user load need not rush to secure additional hardware and software with cloud computing. Instead, an organization can add and subtract capacity as its network load dictates.

* Easy Implementation- Without the need to purchase hardware, software licenses or implementation services, a company can get its cloud-computing arrangement in a record time and for a fraction of the cost of an on-premise solution.

* Frees Up Internal Resources-By placing storage and server needs in the hands of a third-party provider, a company essentially shifts the burden placed on its in-house IT team to a third-party provider. The result: In-house IT departments can focus on business-critical tasks without having to incur additional costs in manpower and training.

* Quality of Service- Network outages can send an IT department scrambling for answers. But in the case of cloud computing, it’s up to a company’s selected vendor to offer 24/7 customer support and an immediate response to emergency situations.

* Security- Many Cloud Computing vendors rely on strict privacy policies, as well on sophisticated security measures, such as proven cryptographic methods to authenticate users. Companies can choose to encrypt data before even storing it on a third-party provider’s servers. As a result, many cloud-computing vendors offer greater data security and confidentiality than companies that choose to store their data in house.
