Cloud computing has been compared to the Internet. In the 90s, when the Internet was starting out the perception about it was very minimal compared to what it has amounted to today. It has been thought that Cloud Computing will have similar results to the Internet.
What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer.
Cloud computing allows companies to reduce costs in multiple ways. Firstly, organizations don’t have to spend money on large hardware pieces. Now, you can rent storage space from a cloud service provider. Cloud computing also takes into consideration an organization’s current server needs because the cloud lets you increase or decrease the resources of your server. This saves you both time and money. Lets look at some numbers found by Salesforce.
Some of the key benefits of using Cloud Computing include:
- Lower costs: one reason for lower costs is the elimination of upfront fees for hardware. Hardware devices can also fail or be physically damaged.
- Better control of documents: The cloud eliminates the need to send documents as attachments in emails.
- Now a days, a strong integrated backup solutions will be included in most cloud-based solutions.
In 2019, researchers are predicting that one third of enterprise IT spending will be spent on cloud services. Many companies have already started using cloud technology. By 2021, out of the organizations currently using cloud technology about half of them will be fully committed to the cloud.
