Cloud Augments Business Processes with Smart Storage
FREMONT, CA: With businesses seeing a drastic shift from legacy systems to cloud, there are numerous factors to be considered before cloud migration. They should be aware of intricate trade-offs in implementing cloud, the service type, and the cloud model they adopt for their unique business needs.
Cloud can help companies avoid the capex while achieving greater agility in their IT infrastructure. Although the idea of moving to a cloud has various advantages, there are potential risks in moving to the cloud systems. Storing core business data on a third-party cloud infrastructure might be a leap of faith for many companies. On the other hand, compliance requirements can prove to be a limitation while choosing the cloud provider. The operational workflow can become the victim to increased latency while functioning on cloud applications over the Internet.
Choosing the right cloud service can depend on the requirement and the speed of implementation. Further it is important to choose the cloud type that is being offered—public, private or hybrid. According to a recent study, it was found that 85 percent companies are moving to multi-cloud strategy and over 58 percent of them opting for hybrid clouds. While shifting, it is important to understand the complexity of the design of the application and the sophistication of the integration that is to be performed.
