Utility Computing in the Cloud

Utility Computing in the Cloud

There is no denying that the cloud has exploded into the fastest growing business computing method, and for good reason. The cloud has a plethora of options that are designed to meet the needs of the modern business. Today, we examine how your business can leverage the inexhaustible supply of cloud options. 

Infrastructure

Unlike traditional hardware servers, the cloud has the unique ability to scale to the needs of your business. Your business will have the support it demands with fluctuating workloads. On top of that, you don’t need to spend a lot of money on the initial hardware infrastructure like you traditionally would. Most businesses prefer the low initial costs and the pay-as-you-go payment structure.

Flexibility

Users have the option to add or remove services. Older technology demanded buying additional hardware. With the cloud, users can access, or scale their cloud services from anywhere with an internet connection. Your users can use their traditional desktop workstations or log in securely through a laptop or even their tablet or smartphone for some tasks. This presents a great deal of value as businesses will only have to pay for the computing that they use, not waste computing or financial resources. 

Data Backup

Due to the accessibility the cloud offers, data loss due to an equipment failure is no longer a concern. The cloud can be accessed anytime, from any location, rendering traditional storage antiquated. 

Which sounds less risky: buying all the hardware and software to create your own virtual machines, and then maintaining them monthly via utility and management costs, or paying a monthly fee to use a cloud that is already up and running? 

Capitalizing on the CLOUD

Whether you realize it or not, businesses are taking advantage of the cloud’s options, and your business should too. There are many additional features the cloud can offer such as:

  • Business Intelligence - It was reported in 2018 that 66 percent of organizations consider themselves to be successful using Business Intelligence initiatives currently using the cloud. 
  • Analytics - The cloud offers businesses a wide range of analytic tools and techniques to help companies track data. It categorizes data in a way that is easily analyzed.
  • Blockchain - Blockchain is one of the most innovative computing tools. With the use of the cloud, blockchain technology will continue to improve and be utilized to further benefit your business.

At Symmetric Engineering Group we have fully taken advantage of the cloud. If you would like to know more about what the cloud can offer, call us at (813) 749-0895.
