Cloud is the new normal
With majority of businesses deploying or fully embracing the cloud and only 8% expressing no interest, we may have crossed the abyss to hop on to the ‘early majority’ stage of the adoption curve of the much-talked about Cloud Services. A cloud service is a service provided to consumers via the internet via cloud computing provider servers, as against the users own on-premise servers. The cloud services are designed keeping in mind the need to provide an alternate for ever-increasing costs of maintaining servers, databases and expensive infrastructure, which has made doing business cumbersome.
Cloud Services give an option to the customer to use easy, scalable access to applications, as per their need, various resources and services which are maintained and managed by the cloud service provider. Cloud service has the ability to scale itself as per customer requirements, helping them save on costs of maintenance of servers, infrastructure and staff.
Cloud Services enable improved agility, flexibility, guarantee of better performance, easy maintenance, better utilization of resources e.g. office space and cost effectiveness.
Cloud Servicescan be accessed using networked client devices, such as desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones and any Ethernet enabled device such as Home Automation Gadgets. Examples of cloud services include online data storage and backup solutions, Web-based e-mail services, hosted office suites and document collaboration services, database processing, managed technical support services and more
While Cloud Sservices may have limitations like security and privacy risks, the service is here to stay simply due to the huge cost advantage it brings with it based on the simple fundamentals of its ability to harness ‘economies of scale’.
