Cloud computing, part 1: costs

Why are so many businesses moving to the cloud? There’s a whole scope of advantages to cloud computing.

  1. Flexibility
    With cloud technology, you get access to a multitude of options. You can use various databases, computing resources, and services. Deployment of IT services takes place within minutes, instead of hours, and that is how you can bring the ideas and solutions to life without needing to set up resources and use time-consuming preparations.
  2. Elasticity
    There is no need to allocate resources beforehand for cases of activity bursts. Instead, you can allocate just the necessary amount of resources for the period of time. In cloud infrastructure, resources could also be scaled, by maximizing or minimizing their volume, based on your exact business needs.
  3. Cost reduction
    You pay just for the IT resources you use, which, in turn, facilitates understanding and forecasting of costs related to the maintenance of a business, platform, or app, including a cost-per-user calculation.
  4. Global accessibility
    You can scale the business presence in new geographical regions and skyrocket the global expansion of your product or business.
