We have written about cloud computing exhaustively because we are part of the group that believe the future of technology lies in this field. In fact, there is a lot of research and evidences about it.
Since its existence, cloud computing opened many doors to technology. Consider the concept of the internet of things and you will see that we’re talking the truth.
Cloud computing: a list of advantages
Below, I will list some of the main pros of cloud computing:
- Cost reduction: The pooling of IT resources and usage-based billing makes cloud computing economically attractive.
- Accessibility: Cloud computing services are accessible at all times, on all media, via an internet connection.
- Elasticity: Cloud Computing makes it quick and easy to allocate more resources to production applications to meet point-to-point increases.
- Rapid Deployment and Simplicity of Integration: Deploying and running a cloud computing service takes little time.
- Service availability: Cloud Computing helps to guarantee access and availability of services. The Cloud Computing Service Provider is contractually committed to minimum server interruption through Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
- The necessary flexibility for your projects: Cloud Computing adapts in real time to your projects and supports the development of an activity without additional costs.
- Data security: Data security is the biggest obstacle to adoption of cloud computing. In this context, providers guarantee users a very high degree of data security with data encryption, software monitoring and securing storage locations (datacenters).
- Rapid adoption by end-users: Applications using cloud computing services are for the most part easy to adopt. Cloud Computing simplifies the uses.
- The positive effect on the environment: Cloud computing, based on server virtualization, the pooling of computing power and the flexibility of services is part of an eco-responsible approach.
- Reversibility: The restitution of all the data of a company is guaranteed by the suppliers providing in their contract a clause of reversibility
