What does it mean to migrate to the cloud?
Cloud computing is the migration of your data and infrastructure resources to the internet. Microsoft describes the cloud as a set of physical servers in one or more data centers.
Cloud services give organizations the ability to go completely digital. With just an internet connection, cloud platforms like Microsoft Azure includes resources like virtual servers, networks, software and databases plus data storage and access to innovative applications. Going cloud-based provides a digital transformation along with many benefits.
Benefits of going cloud-based
Cloud migration enables your entire organization access to your business files and applications from anywhere in the world. Keeping your employees connected creates an efficient environment.
Cloud services like Azure and AWS offer pay-as-you-go pricing, so you get the best value for your needs. In addition to no longer needing physical equipment such as servers, storage racks, hardware and data centers, you also will see savings from no longer having to keep continual temperature-controlled, powered and secured rooms with IT experts needed to maintain them.
Your organization will have the ability to increase or decrease the usage of storage, virtual machines and use of applications as needed. Having the right amount of technical solutions to meet your current demand is a great way to manage resources within the cloud.
We like to say, no two organizations face the same challenges. Meeting business goals looks different for every organization, which means their cloud migration plan should be completely customized. Cloud architecture offers public, private and hybrid options. The most common cloud computing services are infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and software as a service (Saas).
It is essential to be able to continue daily operations with no disruptions after a cyber-attack, natural disaster or human error causing a loss of data. Your data is backed up and protected in the cloud to eliminate risk of losing yours and your customers critical information.
