Why should a company move to cloud?

Jul 23, 2019 1:40AM PDT

Companies spend large amounts of money developing and installing software to improve their operations. Cloud computing enables your business to access software on the internet as a service. Cloud computing is also a safe way of storing and sharing data. You won't lose control when you move to cloud.

Your staff can access the service at any time and from any location to complete their tasks. Cloud computing services fall into three major categories that include Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). You can choose any of these services depending on the needs of your business. If you are unsure about moving from the traditional way of computing, here are the top reasons why you should move your business to cloud computing.

1. Reduced costs
2. Flexibility
3. Scalability
4. No need for a backup plan
5. Data security
6. A wide range of options
7. Improved collaboration

I see many try.

But so many try to break the rule about backup copies or skirt HIPAA rules. There's also rules about data staying inside a country borders.

None of those issues were raised by you. Why?

Cloud is the future

Saves money:- It will give the business the best possible platforms for specific business functions.

Security:- The multi-cloud allows the combination of a private or public cloud platform. the business can secure the data in a private cloud and operate other areas of the business in a public or hybrid.

Secured:- The single cloud platform would be risky if any host fails there will be continuity by utilizing other platforms.

Cloud Computing is the future of Online Services
Jul 29, 2019 11:49PM PDT

Cloud Computing makes is probably the most efficient way to run an online business or service. All you need is a dedicated server and some storage space. Most of the global companies provide these services to enable them run their high performance and exhausting software on to their servers. The most recent example of this service is Google Stadia, the online gaming stream platform from google. In short, Google will be running the games on their servers while the user needs only a good bandwidth connection and the entire hardware is made use of by the Google.
This kind of technology will be extremely beneficial in healthcare industries where doctors can make use of different high maintenance diagnostic software remotely and ease in the patient experience.

Again, in the news. Yet another Cloud data breach.

And it's become painfully evident those that want to promote cloud systems want to downplay or ignore the ongoing losses and failures.

B.S. This has been disproved so many times.

I'm left to wonder why you would attempt such a claim today.

Most likely you have a cloud (system) to sell.

My business has a theory move to the cloud if
Jan 22, 2020 12:33PM PST

we can. Our security group does the analysis and having the servers in the USA versus abroad does matter. We have also started using SSO (Single Sign On) using SAML technology to use AD account to login to the apps instead of application usernames & passwords. Emails have been in the cloud almost since the beginning. I always like using POP3 over IMAP email so I could save emails to my device. I have Spectrum email who purchased my old provider Bright House and Spectrum went all IMAP.
