Cloud Computing — the new tradition

Forget about the traditional approach to business applications, the complicated software stack, and the test environments and so on.  Cloud computing delivers business applications online that are accessed from your web browser, but the software and data are stored on servers.

Cloud computing is defined as the users connect to applications that run on a set of shared servers, rather than running on a single dedicated server.  Cloud computing provides more efficient, flexible, and cost-effective way for IT to meet growing business needs.

 

Why Chose Cloud Computing?

Efficiency: Lower IT Costs. As an alternative of companies filling their own data centers with servers that need to be powered, cooled, and managed by employees — companies are resource pooling with a self-managed environment which vividly increases IT performance.  Private clouds have virtualized applications that are ran on pooled resources which makes for a much more efficient use of hardware, requiring fewer servers to be purchased. 

Flexibility: Freedom of Choice. IT maintains the ability to support traditional systems and gains the flexibility to deploy them internally or externally. Developers can build applications that are manageable among private or public clouds within a common management and security framework.

Agility: Control.  Today a company can simply buy more capacity from a cloud computing provider. For an example, a specific accounting application might not have heavy usage around tax time. Before cloud computing, companies would have had to devote hardware to this app, and have it sit idle through most of the year. Now, they can simply add and remove resources at will.
