While I think we’ve all become pretty accustomed to seeing Google and Microsoft competing with mobile device offerings, there’s another big arena where the two are battling, the Cloud. Add Amazon to the mix and this has become an all-out war for market share.
This lineup of giants competing proves just how lucrative the Cloud market has become. And there is no questioning why. Cloud computing offers customers the ability to adjust their usage as their needs change with no upfront costs or ongoing commitments and to only pay for what they use and offer multiple, geographically isolated data centers behind the scenes for redundancy and availability. Whether you’re looking to develop business applications, games or your interest is in big data, these Cloud services allow customers to mix and match services, while providing the scalability they need so they can spend their time and capital focusing on their product vs. the back-end IT infrastructure.
While many businesses have been flocking to the Cloud in recent years, the need for on-premise solutions has not disappeared. Many customers site security concerns in the public cloud as their reason for staying with their on-premise systems. Others, were early adopters in the move to the Cloud but have since retreated with their most sensitive applications, ending up w/ a hybrid model. We have every reason to believe that the concept and practice of on-premise solutions will remain for the foreseeable future.
How about you? Is your business ready to move to the Cloud? Or perhaps you’re unsure of what’s best for your business. Not to worry, the folks at Teltek can help. Please give us a call to discuss your business needs and your options for cloud or on-premise computing and storage.
