Managing a physical IT infrastructure on-premises can be costly, in time, money and resources. Exporting your data center to a private cloud-based system can be a far more cost-effective option for your business. The private cloud offers flexibility and scalability; customize your cloud environment with hardware and software tailored to your specific business needs, and only pay for the services you require, with extra resources available on-demand whenever you need.
The private cloud can either be located on-site or remotely hosted by a third-party. Your private cloud environment is yours alone, providing a higher level of control and security compared to the public cloud, while retaining all of its efficiency.
Business owners will know how expensive and time-consuming it can be to manage a physical IT data center on-premises. A lower-cost option that more and more businesses are opting for is the public cloud, a remote data center owned and operated by a third-party cloud service provider and accessed via the internet.
With the public cloud, there is no need to purchase any additional hardware or software, as everything is managed by the service provider. You will only pay for the service that you need, but the cloud is practically limitless and totally scalable—additional resources are always available. The public cloud also utilizes a huge network of servers. If one should fail, another one will step in, greatly reducing the likelihood of downtime.
Cloud computing is ideal for many businesses, though some find it difficult to choose between the public and private cloud options available. A hybrid cloud solution can provide the best of both worlds, combining the efficiency and cost savings of a public cloud environment with the security and control of the private cloud or a physical data center.
Your company data and applications can be easily moved between environments. There is also the ability to scale resources between public and private cloud options. Say you have an application running on your private network and there is a temporary increase in demand, such as a seasonal event. Your applications can tap into extra computing resources provided by the public cloud to cope with the spike.
Backing up your files is absolutely vital, but dealing with such large amounts of data can be time-consuming and require costly hardware. And what if this hardware fails? Everything could be lost. A cloud-based option for disaster recovery and backup may be a better option for your business. Alternatively, a cloud backup could act as a secondary backup for your physical backup, to provide an additional layer of security and peace of mind.
