An efficient IT system is essential for a thriving online business. While traditionally on-premise IT infrastructure would be set up to manage data storage and back as well as other computing needs, Cloud Computing is another user-friendly and cost-effective solution businesses of all sizes are adopting today.
What is Cloud Computing?
With Cloud computing, you get on-demand access, via the internet, to computing resources such as servers (physical servers and virtual servers) and data storage, hosted at a remote data center managed by a cloud services provider (or CSP). Leading IT and Telecommunications services provider, Infinity Computers and communications Company (I3C) partners with IBM to provide cloud computing services worldwide.
The Pros of cloud computing compared to traditional on-premise IT infrastructure set up include;
- Reduced IT costs
With Cloud Computing, the costs of purchasing, installing, configuring, and maintaining your own on-premises infrastructure is skipped since you just pay a subscription fee to get access to all of these services from a Cloud Service Provider via the internet
- Improved time management
With Cloud, your enterprise can instantly access applications and resources unlike the case of on-premise IT infrastructure where you would have to wait for weeks or months for purchases and configuration hardware and software installations.
- Developer support
Your in-house developers get access to community-tested code patterns through operating open sources hence helping them hone their skills to deliver expert services.
- Easily and cost-effective scalability
With Cloud, instead of purchasing excess capacity, you increase or decrease IT resources as needed to meet changing demand.
Included among I3C’s cloud computing services through IBM are Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), storage-as-a-service, data warehousing and back up services, and hosting for mobile-enabled web sites and databases.
