Cloud technologies are popular now. Sometimes companies of various scale and specifics make a choice to migrate their IT infrastructure to private or hybrid cloud IaaS. But sometimes this choice has been based on incomplete information. We’d like to tell about cases when some resources are better to migrate to a public cloud.
Cloud is a new trend
Making a choice is always hard for every people in most of the situation. In a case of enterprise infrastructure cloud migration, it is harder twice. The earlier business was skeptical about clouds and preferred traditional bare-metal servers inside of the company’s local data center or an outsource. But eventually, mistrust has been overpassed, and successful cases combined with experts’ reviews convinced the business: the cloud is a very right environment for corporate infrastructure.
First, becoming a cloud client, you will never again buy any hardware or software because those points regulate your cloud provider. You just pay for software licenses, infrastructure elements, and – if necessary – some additional services (for example, VPNaaS, Backup-aaS, etc.). You won’t pay for system administrations, and hardware amortization, and software updates or hardware upgrades.
Second, software ‘stuffing’ in a cloud, including information security tools, various apps, and utilities in general set and managed by a cloud provider. We mean SaaS – Software-as-s-Service, that very useful, convenient, necessary, and economic component of a public cloud for a client.
So, you already plan to migrate to the cloud. But what kind of cloud will be better for your enterprise? Private, public, or hybrid cloud – what same do you need? Let’s speak about the public cloud and cases when this kind of cloud architecture solution is more advantageous and efficient.
