So what are Cloud Technologies?  Believe it or not, Cloud Technologies have been around for several years now.  It’s only over the last few years that the Technology Industry has assigned yet another solution title to it.  Although different, the term ‘Managed Services’ has diversified somewhat to ‘Cloud Technologies’.  Emerging seemingly overnight, increased mobility and necessity for accessing data anywhere, anytime from any device, business owners are now forced to, and have become reliant on reinventing their processes to drive innovation and value to their customers.

Different services offered through cloud services

 

Cloud technologies, refers to ‘Software Applications’ that are accessed using an internet connection.  From a cost perspective and most notably, Cloud technologies tend to be ‘subscription-based’ licensing fees which are attached to Service Level Agreements (SLA’s) that will have a ‘fixed-term’, and usually a renewal option(s).  REMEMBER TO ‘READ YOUR TERMS & CONDITIONS’ carefully when considering and adopting a Cloud Strategy(s), sometimes T’s and C’s change at your time of purchase, and based on how you purchase.

There are several BENEFITS to adopting a Cloud strategy, the most significant are noted below:

 

Changes I.T. Capital expenditures (CAPEX) to an Operational expenditure (OPEX) is attractive and allows  CFO’s, CIO’s and Owners alike, to scale their business model immediately in consideration of market trends in today’s faster changing economy.  Grow and shrink your business immediately to what you need to save you time and money!

Reduction in Software License management.  Cloud technologies allow your business to stay current running ‘up to date’ software.  Your staff can take advantage of additional features of newer software which increases productivity, and reduces overall costs and management, including training.

Increased Security of software applications that reside (if possible) in secured Data Centers means less risk of internal threats.  Understand the risks by asking the hard questions.

Cloud-based technologies are fast becoming ‘Virtualized’ in a ‘Software Defined Storage’ (SDS) solution model.  This means that fewer Servers may be required to drive your applications, however you are now able to increase the overall storage that can be utilized in a smaller physical footprint, reducing the hardware costs associated.  Further, the amount of storage can now be multiplied (3 times) by its physical drive size using technologies such as ‘Thin Provisioning’ – For example, a 500GB hard drive can be made to look (3) times its size to 1500GB.  This technology allows for the immediate allocation of data volumes and management tasks involving your data, in minutes without interruption.  The end result is smaller windows of downtime, and in a lot of cases eliminates downtime altogether.
