Cloud Computing, the choice for a dynamic business.

Cloud Computing, the choice for a dynamic business.

We hear a lot about Cloud Computing, but what is different from the traditional on premise mode? Why should a company choose this model for its business?

A valid ally in the company

In short, the task of Cloud Computing is to allow companies to use IT applications and tools without the need for any installation on structures physically present on site, a task that has proved to be revolutionary right from the moment of its debut and which is continuing to relentlessly transform the IT industry.
There are many competitive advantages that this technology has to offer to a company.
Due to its characteristics, Cloud Computing adapts perfectly to new ways of doing business, companies must be ever faster and more dynamic as speed and dynamism are now essential requirements to survive in an increasingly competitive and crowded market. In this scenario, knowing how to make decisions quickly and seize opportunities in a short time proves to be essential for making great strides ahead of competitors.

Its strong point is the ease of management. To access the Cloud you just need to have any device and have an internet connection: these are the two conditions that allow us to remotely access and manage all the resources offered by the provider simply and quickly.

By choosing to include a Cloud Computing service within your company, you have the possibility of archiving even large files and data without necessarily having to have a physical space on which to save them; you can create new services and applications, provide software on demand, host websites and analyze all the data in real time to make useful estimates for strategic purposes.
This management makes it possible to reduce infrastructure costs and makes access to company information and data flexible and scalable.

This is the main reason why companies that are ready to exploit the advantages of technological innovation are increasingly focusing on Cloud Computing, because it proves to be an inimitable ally that manages to make a company more productive and efficient.

At this point a question may arise spontaneously: can't all this be done by continuing to use the on premise mode and then installing a software on my local hardware? Undoubtedly yes, but choosing an on-demand solution brings with it indisputable advantages.
How to set up Cloud Computing

However, speaking of Cloud Computing in general is not exactly correct as there are many ways that can be put into practice, both as regards the type of Cloud Computing and the resource distribution channel.

The first differentiation to be made is precisely on the type of Cloud:

    IaaS, a classic solution where you rent servers and virtual machines, storage resources, networks and operating systems from a pay-as-you-go cloud service provider
    Paas is the type generally chosen when services are needed for an on-demand environment. Especially useful when you want to develop applications quickly and easily without having to worry about the management and configuration of the underlying infrastructure
    Saas, in this last type the provider can host and manage the software application and the underlying infrastructure, a recent choice for which they opt in the security sectors

As far as the distribution channels of resources are concerned, we find:

    Public cloud: where hardware, software and other supporting infrastructure are all owned by the provider and managed by the provider. In this way the customer uses the services simply through the internet connection
    Private cloud: the environment in which you operate is reserved for one customer only. In this way the Cloud is accessible only to that specific customer and this guarantees greater control and privacy. The public cloud also adopts certain levels of security, but the private channel can guarantee further and more personalized ones
    Hybrid clouds: data and information are shared between the two types of public and private clouds. This combination allows you to take advantage of the best of both types: you will have the flexibility and processing power of a public Cloud for all those operations that do not contain particularly sensitive data, while for the management of sensitive information you will have the security of the private channel , keeping business-critical applications and data on-premises.

Maximum customization

From here we can understand how a Cloud Computing service is built directly on the needs of the company, on its characteristics and above all on the needs it has, also taking into account the type of data that is managed in order to choose the best combination in terms of efficiency and safety.

We started this article wondering why a company should choose on-demand rather than on-permission IT management.
In conclusion, in the light of the foregoing, we can certainly say that for a company, opting for a Cloud Computing service means focusing on speed and efficiency; moreover, the large Cloud Computing services are performed on worldwide networks, this allows us to always have the latest hardware version and constant updates for a result that is difficult to match in the company.

It should also be remembered that the possibility of using IT resources rapidly is combined with a lower expenditure of costs, as expenses are cut for the purchase of software and hardware, the configuration and management of local data centers (which therefore require server racks, 24-hour electricity for power and cooling systems) and the cost of IT technicians to manage the physical infrastructure.
