Why Use The Cloud?

The days of Rolodexes and filing cabinets stuffed to bursting with endless paperwork are well and truly over. These days, the documentation and processes of a modern business take place in the cloud. 

The cloud is an incredibly versatile data storage solution that gives IT-related capabilities massive scalability and far more versatility. Rather than storing data on a single machine or physical server it exists in the misty ether of the cloud and can be accessed anytime, anywhere, by anyone who has been granted access to it. Meanwhile, the cloud boasts enhanced security that protects your data from system failure because it isn’t stored on a physical drive that can be damaged or corrupted. Cloud computing is a thoroughly modern approach to IT services that allows you to easily harness the ever-increasing power of servers and virtual technology.

As the name suggests, a public cloud is one that can be accessed by anyone with a credit card and a network connection. Some are freely available so you don’t even need the credit card (although the amount of storage you get for free is incredibly limited). Public clouds like GoogleDrive and Dropbox are a pay-as-you-go service with a shared infrastructure. They’re managed through a self-service portal and very easy to access, however they have limits and are not as secure as private clouds.

Private clouds mimic public clouds while fully existing within your firewall. They tend to be highly virtualised, combing multiple quantities and forms of IT infrastructure in a single place, or a few logical resource pools that are easily managed.

They are delivered through a self-service web interface like public clouds, offering all the benefits of cloud services while being privately managed and owned. Access can be limited to only those you wish to have access. They’re very popular among businesses because public clouds aren’t yet capable of offering enough reliability and scalability to justify the transfer of all business IT resources to public clouds. The smartest way for a business to take advantage of the cloud is to reconstruct the internal architecture of your IT infrastructure around a private cloud.

Technically speaking any application can be cloud-based. That doesn’t, however, always mean it’s a good idea. For example, running desktop systems on the cloud makes no sense as they need to sit on your desktop. 

Beyond that, there are compliance and regulatory consideration that prevent businesses from running certain applications – particularly those containing sensitive client data – in the cloud. IT management applications, collaboration and business applications are all well suited to the cloud and become markedly more efficient and effective when they are cloud-based.

The cloud ensures effective continuity, fewer operational issues, and simple scalability in your business. Best of all, cloud services are evergreen, resistant to data loss, and don’t require an energy-guzzling, space-hogging on-site server. Acrylic IT provides a range of comprehensive managed cloud services, from hybrid cloud solutions to private systems.
