Today, we’ll be exploring the following key questions: How do you secure your data? What exactly does a cloud migrate approach look like? How can you leverage a cloud for business strategy?”
Cloud for business is a concept that offers an innovative and simplified way of managing infrastructure costs. It’s a technology that allows IT departments to quickly and easily move applications from on-site shared hosting to a cloud provider, where it’s then accessed via a web browser or other media. Moving applications to the cloud presents business with several key cost savings opportunities. In short, the cost savings arise because the IT department no longer has to maintain and pay for costly on-site hosting which can be more than several hundred dollars per month, as well as maintaining the hardware and other software needed to run that server.
Rather, by leveraging existing virtualization tools, cloud for business lets IT administrators create and manage servers that are part of a cloud network and that have their own, separate private hardware “grace” which they can use for applications. This not only reduces the overall expense for the IT administrator, but it also ensures that each individual server is properly utilized, contributing to overall IT efficiency. The bottom line is this: a cloud migration approach takes IT resources away from on-site IT operations, and moves them into a virtual world where there is less need for those resources. This helps to free up additional IT staff for other functions – freeing up the valuable expertise that an in-house IT team may have and allowing the company to better utilize its computing power and other workforce resources.
