5 Reasons Your Business Should Move to the Cloud

Cloud computing is the rapid provisioning of on-demand computer system resources and services over the internet, usually on a pay-for-use basis. Like a public utility, cloud computing relies on the sharing of resources to provide coherent resources. Businesses and organizations that make use of third-party clouds are able to focus on their core processes without spending time and money to building and maintaining computer and IT infrastructure.

Many businesses have moved (or have considered moving) to the cloud because of the immense flexibility that is present in the way services are provided. Cloud computing services offer a variety of systems including:

  • infrastructure as a service (IAAS)
  • platform as a service (PaaS), which includes specialized PaaS types such as integration
    platform as a service (iPaaS), data platform as a service (dPaaS)
  • blockchain as a service (BaaS)
  • software as a service (SaaS)
  • mobile backend as a service (MbaaS/BaaS)
  • function as a service (FaaS)
  • as well as serverless computing

Cloud infrastructure can be deployed using several different models:

  •  a private cloud operated for a single organization
  •  a public cloud where services are provided over a network that is open for the use of the general public
  • a community cloud, which shares infrastructure between organizations from a specific community
  • hybrid cloud, which is a composition of two or more of the three clouds models mentioned
  • distributed cloud, which includes public resource computing and volunteer cloud computing
  • multicolor
  • big data cloud
  • cloud for executing high-performance computing applications (or HPC cloud)
