Uncertain if your company should be moving to the cloud?
When moving to the cloud, your email will be more available. At the same time, you won’t have direct access to the systems you use.
Understanding the Cloud
In the IT world, cloud computing is referred to as “utility computing.” With cloud utility computing, you can’t turn on a feature that would make your server more secure. At the same time, the cloud has the greatest reach. We educate you on the pros and cons of the cloud.
Your own private cloud has all the benefits of corporate IT. Centralizing your resources in a private cloud involves hosting your servers in CITI’s data centres. If you don’t want your resources in the public cloud, speak to us about getting your own private cloud.
Dynamic Resource Allocation
Dynamic provisioning is central to cloud computing and costs. You buy the resources you need and if you need more, they will spin up for you based on demand.
The ability to scale up and scale down is called scalability. Because the cloud lives in data centres and all those systems talk to each other from one data centre to another, effectively what happens is that you get multiple scale computers working as one.
The Cloud Includes the Latest Server Software
Depending on what kind of cloud you’re looking at, there could be reduced responsibility for cloud support and fewer IT staff. Software capabilities in the cloud are often significantly superior. You don’t need to pay to update your software and keep it current.
Convenience and Mobility
The cloud is everywhere. Availability, convenience, geographical distribution, and lower operating expenses are the reasons people look to cloud computing.
The Cloud and Organizational Culture
Changes in technology can have implications for organizational culture. When considering new technology like moving the cloud, we take remote working and a distributed workforce into consideration. The cloud can dominate your company infrastructure.
Economics of Cloud Computing
The primary reason for considering a move to the cloud is the cost model. Typically, cloud computing is paid for on an ongoing basis with little or no lock-in. It allows organizations to invest capital expenditures into an ongoing operating cost.
