Why Opt for Cloud Storage?

Earlier, storing data was one of the biggest challenges that users and organizations faced equally. The first hard drive, which was introduced in 1956 by IBM, weighed over a ton and almost occupied a whole room. The hard drive had acapacity of just over 3700 kilobytes. Whatmight seemtoo little in contemporary times was considered a technological revolution back inthose days.

The introduction of cloud computing and cloud storage completely changed the landscape of storing data. Cloud storage is the storageof data across multiple servers instead of a physical device. Cloud storage has been in great demand since organizations have begun migrating to cloud platforms. Cloud storage scores big byproviding businesses with a virtual infrastructure that is highly effective in accessibility, scalability, and data customization.


What Difference Would Cloud Storage Make in Your Business?

Cloud storage offers businesses various benefits that would help them improve their overall functionality. Using cloud storage, companies can effectively increase their accessibility while reducing the overall expense of data storage on local servers. Even though many organizations have seen positive results in shifting to storing data in cloud, several organizations are still skeptical about making this shift.

We'll now be talking about how cloud storage would aid businesses in addressing these lingering doubts.

 

Cost-Efficient

The first and foremost benefit is moving to storage in cloudwould help organizations cut down on their storage costs. Cloud storage is generally more affordable as the cloud service provider divides the cost of infrastructure among multiple businesses. In addition, moving your business to the cloud reduces the organization's hardware and maintenance costs.

 

Enhanced Security

By opting to store data on the cloud, organizations would be using cloud storage housed in a data center that provides enterprise-level security compared to having hardware within the office premise. Additionally, there is absolutely no single point of failure in the cloud as data is backed up onmultiple servers.

 

Scalable Service

One of the most important features of cloud data storage is the option of a pay-per-demand feature that organizations can avail. With this, youneed to pay for what you want to use.This eliminates the need to estimate how much storage space you would require for the year and risk paying for storage space that can remain unused.

Cloud computing is a great euphemism for centralizing computer services under one server.

Features Offered by Corporate Cloud Storage Providers

While you are trying to evaluate how effective cloud storage would be for your organization, it is essential that you also weigh the features offered by cloud storage providers. To ease you throughthis step, we have listed some of the most renowned cloud data storage providers and their salient features.

 

Microsoft One Drive

One of the most widely used cloud storage services, Microsoft One Drive, connects files across Office 365. They also provide users with complete visibility and control oversecurity. OneDrive for business also offers capabilities like syncing reports and managing migrations.

 

Google G-suite

Built on Google's robust and secure global infrastructure, remote teams can easily stay connected and do it all with utmost safety. Their built-in security features help keep data, devices, and users protected, and along with that, the files are also automatically backed up in the cloud.

 

Amazon Web Services

AWS ensures that organizations get a flexible and secure cloud platform where they can go about their business. Using best-in-class encryption and little downtime, AWS ensures that customer information, identities, applications, and devices are protected.


How Does Cloud Migration Assist the C-suite?

Several businesses and IT professionals worldwide are constantly shifting from on-premise infrastructure toa scalable, economical, and agile infrastructure by migrating to the cloud, especially those inclined towards using cloud storage.

According to IBM's research, 60% of the 380 CIOs and CTOs polled stated that their IT infrastructure isn't entirely prepared for the future or large-scale disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Moving data to the correct cloud solves communication, collaboration, security, storage, and data availability issues.

Features of cloud storage that the C-suite can leverage are:

  • Flexibility in Operation
  • Increase in Transparency
  • Enhanced Risk Management
  • Improved Security


Conclusion

When you see the overall picture, using cloud storage would, in many ways, improve the functioning of organizations. Once you have cracked how to use cloud storage, the rest of the process is a mere cakewalk to leverage its benefits. Using cloud storage can help businesses drastically reduce infrastructure and maintenance costs with the right strategy.

Article | March 21, 2022

Continuous intelligence (CI) relies on the real-time analysis of streaming data to produce actionable insights in milliseconds to seconds. Such capabilities have applications throughout a business. In today’s dynamic marketplace, new CI applications that use data from various sources at any given time might be needed on very short notice.The challenge is how to have the flexibility to rapidly develop and deploy new CI applications to meet fast-changing business requirements. A common approach employed today is to use a dynamic architecture that delivers access to data, processing power, and analytics capabilities on demand. In the future, solutions also will likely incorporate artificial intelligence applications to complement the benefits of traditional analytics. Increasingly, cloud-native is the architecture of choice to build and deploy AI-embedded CI applications. A cloud-native approach offers benefits to both the business and developers. Cloud-native applications or services are loosely coupled with explicitly described dependencies.

Why Microsoft Should Spinoff Its Cloud Business

Article | July 6, 2022

Microsoft currently features old-school solutions that are growing relatively slowly (Office and Windows) and new cloud solutions that are growing tremendously (Dynamics 365 and Azure). If the company stays in its current form, Microsoft stock will keep steadily advancing. But because the company’s total top and bottom lines are never going to increase much more than 30% or 35% per year, the shares are never going to deliver truly huge returns. But that would change if the company was to spin off its rapidly growing cloud businesses. In such a scenario, the current owners of Microsoft stock would receive shares in a cutting edge cloud services company (let’s call it Azure), and shares in a company focused on providing old, mostly PC-based software to businesses and consumers.

Intelligence Giant Upgrading its Cloud Technology

Article | July 11, 2022

With the huge amounts of data in all fields, a future in the cloud is imperative to help deal with this explosion of data, especially in the field of intelligence technology. This is the reason why the US Central Intelligence Agency is updating its cloud technology. The agency has recently released a draft request for proposal for its Commercial Cloud Enterprise contract.The C2E tens of billions contract will be a multi-award commercial cloud computing contract with a five-year base period and two five-year options for a period of performance of up to 15 years, according to nextgov.com.In a March 2019 presentation by the Directorate of Digital Innovation, a division of the CIA, the department outlined its vision for C2E. It would be broad and include infrastructure, platform and software cloud services supporting a broad range of users, with a variety of security clearances and a worldwide presence, as reported by techcrunch.com. The principal C2E Program objective is to acquire cloud computing services directly from commercial cloud service providers with established records for innovation and operational excellence in cloud service delivery for a large customer base,the department stated in the presentation.Apparently, the agency prefers to avoid all the attention that the Pentagon’s JEDI cloud procurement process got, and quietly go about its business.

AWS tags US$235 million to expand its cloud infrastructure in Latin America

Article | February 10, 2020

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is raising its stake on cloud computing infrastructure in Latin America. Proof of this is that the IT company will use R$1 billion (around US$235 million) to expand its data center in Sao Paulo. These millions will be used for its Data Processing Center located in that part of Brazil. In addition, a portion of these US$235 million will also be used to increase the services it offers to both public and private parties.The move gives reason to suggest that AWS is upping the ante in the future of startups and tech in the region that rely on cloud services to develop their own products.It launched its cloud center in Brazil in 2011 but it’ll be getting some beefing up thanks to these funds. Moreover, AWS has two Edge networks in São Paulo and two in Rio de Janeiro. As well as one in each of the following cities: Bogotá (Colombia), Buenos Aires (Argentina), and Santiago (Chile).The objective of all of this is to be the region’s prime provider of cloud infrastructure and beat out its competition AKA, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft’s Azure.
