Cloud Computing Could Bring Down Business Costs
Cloud computing, a means through which computing applications, personal collaboration, business processes and more can be delivered whenever and wherever you need, might save your company money.
BBC News weighed the pros and cons of switching to cloud in a video and discovered that cloud computing may drive down the cost of doing business.
“Cloud can save overall for companies,” said Ajit Melarkode, managing director of cloud storage firm Rackspace. “Previously, when you had special usages for IT, you would go through the whole IT cycle of procuring your IT, setting up your IT, testing those applications on IT, going through your special usage. Now if you use the private cloud aspect of it, you have a very secure application, or you use the public cloud aspect of it, there’s no set-up costs. There’s no procurement costs. You’re just using a vendor like Rackspace.”
In addition, Melarkode addressed the misconception that cloud computing raises business costs, saying that when companies use public cloud services for data that should be placed in a private cloud network, they might see unexpected expenses. Companies should also make sure they have proper technical support in order to keep costs down.
