21 Aug Building Trust in the Cloudy Skies
The age of storing data in hard drives is long gone and might even soon be obsolete. Back in late 2013, there was a forecast predicting that spending on public IT cloud services would touch $47.4 billion. By this year, 2017, it has also been predicted that this would increase up to $107 billion or more. Staggering numbers, right?
In a nutshell, storing your data on the cloud is quite close to becoming the new “normal.” How have all these businesses made the choice to move to the cloud? It’s because along with the obvious advantages like the sheer flexibility of accessing your data from anywhere, and the amount of efficiency that increases, you also have disaster recovery at your fingertips.
When you have a business that is constantly growing, it isn’t easy to manage the huge infrastructure changes that come along. It’s easy to fall into the trap of “we’ll cross the bridge when we come to it” kind of thinking, but what companies don’t take into account is the time and the money they are going to spend then, or the sheer pressure they would be in, at that point in time.
When you have the help of a partner who evaluates the environment ahead of time and then gives you the solution, life gets much easier.
