Though Cloud Computing is still evolving it has some clear benefits for businesses and organizations as well as the government. Despite the risks associated with security and access to data the companies can make use of the Cloud to their advantage.
The benefits that organizations can derive are listed as follows:
The first and most obvious benefit that Cloud Computing gives businesses is reduced expenditure. The savings are in terms of reduced IT infrastructure cost and maintenance costs. The CAPEX and OPEX both are reduced which result in higher profitability for the businesses.
The Cloud Platform is highly redundant and in case of any issue with a particular sever there is always another server ready to take its place. This makes the Cloud more reliable.
With the cloud technology the IT staff need not worry about making constant updates to the systems. With a single update the whole cloud can be upgraded.
Given the fact that Cloud is a combination of multiple servers, there comes increased storage capacity as well. With multiple servers networked together the users get to use the resources of all the servers simultaneously.
The traditional methods were rigid. With cloud computing you get more flexibility and can make use of the resources in a better way.
Focus on other activities
Cloud Computing reduces the load of the support personnel and they need not worry about server upgrades and computing issues. It allows the businesses to focus on other activities of increased importance.
Unlike Dedicated Servers where you would need to be present at the premises to access the data, with Cloud Computing you can access it from anywhere without any hassles. Employees can access information wherever they are, rather than having to remain at their desks.
