Imagine that Cloud Computing did not exist when the COVID19 pandemic hit the world.
Lets just leave it up in the cloud!
Imagine that Cloud Computing did not exist when the COVID19 pandemic hit the world. Imagine offices locked their doors, and employees headed home with no way to connect and collaborate while working.
To put it simply this would have meant that many businesses would have shut their doors permanently.
Scary thought, right?
Although the pandemic pitched many unforeseen circumstances towards the modern business world, it also highlighted the benefits of Cloud Computing.
As many businesses adapt towards a more connected tomorrow, those who are reluctant to adapt to the new modern way of conducting business, will remain in the dark shadows of an older, slower, less efficient world.
When thinking of the new modern way of ensuring business – efficiency, agility, connectivity, efficiency, speed, flexibility, the means of accessing information at a click of a button from any where in the world, and the ability to back up, store, retrieve, but most of all protect data, and information should come to mind.
So, what is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is the on – demand application based software infrastructure that stores data on remote servers, which can be accessed at any point, from anywhere in the world.
In order to assist in the understanding of the Cloud Computing, I will divide it into two aspects:
- The front end:
This aspect enables users to access the stored data using either the internet or a cloud computing software.
2. The backend:
This is the primary component of the cloud computing software, which is responsible for securely storing the data. The backend comprises servers, central servers, data bases etc.The cloud computing service will usually maintain multiple copies of the data to mitigate instances of security threats, data loss, and breach of data.
What are the top benefits of cloud computing during this uncertain time?
- The ability to make the physical office obsolete
- Empower workforces to succeed from anywhere
- Provide businesses with unlimited flexibility and scalability
What are the benefits of cloud computing?
- Accessible from everywhere, and anywhere:
Cloud computing does not relay on personal computers or localised servers to store data, and to function correctly, this in turn grants users’ access to their data at any time, and from anyplace. This not only transforms the open road into a 24/7 office, but it also encourages real-time collaboration by remote teams.
Cloud computing eliminates the capital expenses of buying hardware/software and setting up onsite data centres.
- Global Scale:
Cloud Computing delivers the right amount of IT resources, for example: storage, bandwith, and accessible from all geographical locations.
Cloud Computing services run on a worldwide network of secure data centre
This offers several benefits over a single corporate datacentre, including reduced network latency for applications.
Cloud Computing makes data backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity a lot easier.
With a broad set of policies, technologies, and controls that strengthen the over all stance of the organisation, ensures that the infrastructure is well protected from outside threats.
Let`s recap, the global pandemic has created major shifts in the ways companies operate and innovate. For many organizations, a heavy reliance on cloud applications and cloud services has become the new normal.
