With the word Cloud buzzing all around the IT world, there would be few businesses which haven’t
thought about moving to Cloud. However, for one reason or the other, there seems to be something
that holds small and medium business back from making the switch. But, Cloud is undoubtedly, the
next stage of IT evolution. So, why should you move to Cloud?
Why buy, when you can rent
The foremost advantage of Cloud technology is that it gives you the chance to circumvent the cost
involved in buying and maintenance of infrastructure. A superficial look at the price structure for
Cloud tech might give the impression that the recurring cost of subscription makes it more expensive
than traditional licensing. But, one saves all the money, which would have been otherwise spent
in buying servers, setting up backups, engaging resources for maintaining and upgrading these.
Moreover, the current trend is such that, all the Cloud vendors are trying hard to push down the
prices. All these sum up to huge savings after switching to Cloud.
Most of the Cloud plans have a pay-as-you-go structure. For traditional infrastructure, scaling can
be prohibitively costly and, more importantly, may take too much time. By the very paradigm on
which Cloud is based, one can expand or retract resources based on business needs.With Cloud, all
you have to do is sign for a bigger plan and all other intricate issues are taken care of by the Cloud
vendors.So, when you move on to Cloud, there’s no worry about wasting too many servers, or being
short of service in times of high demand.
Access to the latest Innovation
On-premise infrastructure ages the moment they have been installed. Of course, you can upgrade
them, but that incurs cost. With Cloud, it is vendor’s competitive advantage (in a way responsibility)
to provide you with the latest practices and tech– another thing which you can check off you IT
department’s to-do list.
Most corporations keep data backups and spend quite a lot in maintaining redundancy in backups.
With increasing data, this becomes complex and expensive. All major Cloud storage providers, like
Ramco, have reliable backup procedures, which make sure that you don’t lose data in the event of
outages either on your side or providers’ side.
Cloud is coming, and it’s only a matter of time that the traditional IT solutions become too expensive
to have mercantile value. It is better that you be front-runner in accepting Cloud rather than playing
