Cloud Computing: Setup, Migration & Management of All Your Services
Cloud computing has been a hotly discussed topic for almost a decade. Despite its widespread use, many businesses still struggle to understand what exactly cloud computing is and how it can help them.
What is the cloud, anyway? In short, it’s a way to host IT services and software in an off-premise data center and access them on-demand via the Internet. How does this help you? First, because these data centers are monitored around the clock by skilled network engineers, it saves you the trouble of buying, hosting and managing costly IT infrastructure. The cloud also provides a level of uptime and reliability that most businesses could never achieve on their own – but these two advantages are just the start.
The Many Benefits of Cloud Computing
Cloud computing continues to attract a lot of attention and demand because it empowers organizations to reach a higher level of efficiency and productivity, while simultaneously reducing the cost and stress normally associated with new technology.
Increased Scalability – Add New Capacity on Demand
Cloud computing was designed to allow businesses to purchase as much or as little computing resources as they need to work effectively. That means as your organization grows, you can flexibly purchase more resources to meet those needs. Have a big project that requires a sudden, long or short-term increase in computing or storage resources? With cloud computing, they’re within easy reach.
Improved Efficiency – Maximize Uptime and Availability
By handing the management, support, and maintenance of certain applications over to experts, you save the expense of buying and managing network hardware, while also increasing the reliability of your network and software. Ensuring your systems are always available makes your business more stable and has a direct, positive impact on your bottom line.
Strengthened Flexibility and Mobility – Better Communication and Innovation
With your data in the cloud, it’s freely accessible to whatever source best suits your business need. Employees can safely collaborate on projects, share data and ideas across your organization, innovate faster, and provide better products and services to your customers.
Enhanced Data Security – Secure Clouds are the New Normal
Gone are the days when cloud computing was a security liability. Evolving best practices for cloud security assessment, data loss prevention, and threat protection have eliminated many of the typical security concerns - provided you can access the expertise required to apply those best practices to your network.
The cloud team at Manhattan Tech Support can help tailor the latest cloud technologies to your business requirements, delivering not only improved efficiency but optimal security and compliance as well.
Strategy is the Foundation of Cloud Adoption
To make the most of the cloud, you’ll need to analyze your current systems, your present and future business goals, then develop a strategic approach that aligns the two using the latest cloud technology. Strategy is crucial to your cloud computing transition, as it helps you identify what can and should be migrated and prioritizes cloud services that will have the greatest business impact.
The Cloud Migration Process
Cloud migration is the process of moving your on-premise applications to the cloud. Cloud migrations are notoriously difficult, with just 27% of businesses reporting great satisfaction with their cloud migration experience.
To help ensure a successful cloud migration, our engineers will determine which services can be securely moved to the cloud, find a cloud architecture that works for you, and solve any other challenges you face during the process.
As cloud computing grows in popularity, so does the need to combine multiple public cloud services.
When implemented successfully, a multi-cloud strategy can produce a seamless digital fabric for business productivity. Achieving this requires the hand of a skilled expert with compliance expertise, vendor management experience, and a strong cybersecurity background, like Manhattan Tech Support.
