cloud computing

Take your business to the cloud and get rid of costly hardware, backups and licences.

More and more applications are migrating to the cloud and there is a good chance that the one you use has a web version. More businesses avoid the one time cost and save tens of thousands of dollars by replacing their old or faulty infrastructure with cloud computing for a low monthly subscription. The cloud computing is focused on maximizing the effectiveness of the shared resources. Cloud resources are usually not only shared by multiple users but are also dynamically reallocated per demand. This can work for allocating resources to users. In this way it should maximize the use of computing power thus reducing environmental damage as well since less power, air conditioning or others are required for a variety of functions. With cloud computing, multiple users can access a single server to retrieve and update their data without purchasing the licenses for different applications.

For most small businesses, Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) refers to the capability provided to the consumer is to provision processing, storage, networks, and other fundamental computing resources where the consumer is able to deploy and run arbitrary software, which can include operating systems and applications. The consumer does not manage or control the underlying cloud physical infrastructure but has control over operating systems, storage, deployed applications, and possibly limited control of select networking components

The goal of cloud computing is to allow users to take benefit from all of these technologies, without the need for deep knowledge about or expertise with each one of them. The cloud aims to cut costs, and help the users focus on their core business instead of being impeded by IT obstacles.

As an example, we can look at an office. Without the cloud the office needs a domain controller and email server, database server, file and print server and a backup service for all these servers. The cost for hardware and licensing could be around $20,000 or more. For a few hundred dollars a month the same infrastructure could be in the cloud without being afraid if you are ready for a disaster and knowing the data and ultimately the business is safe.
