PCMAN – Technology has not stopped evolving throughout the years, and it is less likely to stop. Innovative companies kept on gathering new ideas, creating and developing new technologies to make our lives a little less hard and much more productive.
Cloud computing is one of the newly introduced technology that has been gaining lots of attention—perhaps because it’s supported by giant tech companies such as Microsoft who has been campaigning its “cloud-first, mobile-first” movement. However, since it’s still considered as a relatively new concept, users need to be educated and informed with the benefits that they could get by using the Cloud.
Being in the Cloud means information does not necessarily need to be stored in a physical form. By not having a physical form, it means that the business is offered an on-demand capability to ensure that they can access their information at their convenience. With the right cloud computing service, businesses can check on the services, and make changes directly via the control panel. Businesses may also add or delete the users and storage networks to their cloud platform. This on-demand capability has given businesses more control in accessing and maintaining their information.
With the increasing numbers of devices, accessing data using different devices simultaneously has become something to be considered for application and software developers. Cloud computing enables user to access their data over different devices with a single access point; operate at different hours; and finally enhance their productivity. This broad accessibility allows public, private, and hybrid clouds.
Increased Flexibility and Elasticity
Nowadays, changes happen more frequently and technology services need to be able to cater to it quickly. With Cloud’s flexibility, it helps website and applications that are hosted on the cloud to adapt to the change faster, and reallocate the resources accordingly. Users will less likely experience downtime when they use Cloud instead of a local host. The Cloud will adjust itself according to the incoming traffic, and it should be used by businesses to ensure constancy in the changing environment.
Last but definitely not least, users only pay what they use with the Cloud. Everything is measured—from the storage level, bandwidth, to the number of user accounts that the business is using—payment is accounted to the service that are being used. The users will receive the benefit of transparency in terms of resources appointed for monitoring and controlling the cloud environment.
