Technical Benefits of Consuming Cloud
Technical – The instant improvement cloud hosting offers includes guaranteed performance, improved security, disaster recovery and resiliency future proofing underlying technologies and infrastructures. It provides manageable platforms, with increased speed and frequency of delivery of deployments through the life-cycle. It offers automation of repetitive tasks and delivers a higher level of service and uptime increasing productivity. Simplification of platform adoption and onboarding activities accelerate the implementation of Cloud Services. It introduces up and down scalability of technologies that support business need. Onboarding reveals redundant data and technical assets that are no longer required and highlight where savings can be made by reducing data volumes and streamlining technologies.

Increased Scalability and Flexibility - With Cloud computing, companies only pay for the computer power they consume. Without the Cloud, firms must predict what processing power they need now, and, in the future, which can lead to the over-deployment of servers and software licenses. Instead, Cloud service provision is built on offering Cloud users the flexibility to scale their IT capacity in response to actual business needs in a timely fashion. If a company needs a more powerful processing engine, for instance, in response to a big spike in demand, then that Cloud hosting partner would be able to speedily provide it. Similarly, if business demand goes down, then the Cloud client should be able to scale down, without being locked into long-term software licensing or data processing costs.
Improved Network Performance - If organisations are using the remote Data centres of their Cloud service providers to process, search and analyse their data, the workload on their own networks can be reduced, meaning better performance for functions using the internal network. This means organisations can avoid the types of data congestion that can impact business performance, whilst at the same time reducing the amount of costly network switching equipment and bandwidth needed to support the local area network. Some Cloud service providers even allow you to locate your servers into their Data centres to aid these network efficiencies
