Cloud based solutions: Worth?Category: Definitions
To work appropriately, software applications require IT infrastructure.
In early software ages, as you bought software, you needed to provide required IT infrastructure (physical servers).
This has some disadvantages:
Direct energy. Secondary energy (AC). Security. Physical space.
Imagine you have the most demanded for services in your business history. It’s your opportunity to grow your business as you always dreamed of.
It’s 6 am, you are getting ready to work, and you receive a call from one of your managers. There was a flood on the IT site. The server is dead and there’s no opportunity to make it work soon. You lost of your clients, warehouse and orders data.
It’s been 25 years since you bought this software and never had an issue similar. You think: Why this is happening to me?
It can happen to everyone. This can happen to everyone is a real risk. The only way to protect yourself is to be prepared for this.
What if over the last year you worked on a contingency plan for disasters recovery?
Now, maybe in hours you can recover all your data and maybe operate as normal. Or maybe you even noticed something went wrong with the server. You just realize two days later that the server is dead and you need to buy a new one.
This is the genuine power of Cloud Services.
Enormous companies provide Cloud Services with genuine experts working hard to provide a full availability of servers.
