5 Benefits & Risks Of Working In The Cloud

5 Benefits & Risks Of Working In The Cloud

Good news! We’ve released a new eBook for all of you who are considering, or already have, shifted to the cloud! This introductory eBook provides a pro/con analysis of the 5 key things most people think of when they’re looking at Cloud based systems.

Here’s a taste of what to expect from this eBook:

Accessibility...

...can be viewed as a measure of the ability to access and benefit from some system or entity. When working in the cloud, this concept presents itself in how anything hosted in the cloud is available from virtually any location.

Maintenance...

...in the cloud is an issue for the provider to be concerned with. If a server goes down, it’s no longer a scramble to get ahold of your IT department to figure out what went wrong, that’s the provider's job.

Reliability...

...in IT infrastructure always comes down to two balancing two key factors: Redundancy, and the points of failure. Consider this, if a car loses one wheel it can still drive, while if a motorcycle loses one it cannot continue.

Security...

...is of the utmost importance when you’re working in the cloud. Security is always critical but, when your system is always available from everywhere and in manners few have worked with like multi-tenancy, that’s where things get risky.

Pricing...

...is also of dire importance when you’re shifting to an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) model. Moving to the cloud can save money, but there’s no guarantee of that. It all comes down to getting a good deal, knowing your needs, and accomodating for them.
