Organizations worldwide are utilizing Cloud Computing, and the largest cloud provider is Amazon Web Services and close behind is Microsoft. The benefits of using Amazon Web Services and Microsoft AZURE include:
No Upfront Investment: Replace upfront infrastructure investment with low monthly costs
Building on-premises infrastructure can be slow and expensive. There is expensive hardware that needs to be ordered, paid for, installed and configured – and all of this needs to happen long before you actually need it. With Cloud Computing, you don’t have to spend time on these activities; instead you just pay for the resources you consume on a variable basis.
Low Ongoing Cost: Reduce your overall IT costs
Cloud Computing helps you reduce your overall IT costs in multiple ways. The massive economies of scale and efficiency improvements allow us to continually lower prices, and our multiple pricing models allow you to optimize costs for both variable and stable workloads. Additionally, Cloud Computing drives down up-front and on-going IT labor costs and gives you access to a highly distributed, full-featured platform at a fraction of the cost of traditional infrastructure.
Flexible Capacity: Eliminate guessing on your infrastructure capacity needs
Predicting how customers are going to adopt your new application is difficult, and it’s hard to get right. So, when you make a capacity decision prior to deploying an application, you often either end up sitting on expensive idle resources or dealing with limited capacity. If you run out of capacity then you are faced with a poor customer experience until you can acquire more resources. With Cloud Computing, these problems go away. You provision the amount of resources you need. If you need more, you can easily scale up. If you don’t need them, just turn them off and stop paying.
Speed & Agility: Develop and deploy applications faster
With traditional infrastructure, it can take weeks to get a server procured, delivered, and running. These long timelines stifle innovation. With Cloud Computing, you can provision resources, as you need them. You can deploy hundreds or even thousands of servers in minutes, without talking to anyone. This self-service environment changes how quickly you can develop and deploy applications and allows your team to experiment more quickly and more frequently.
Apps Not Ops: Focus on projects that differentiate your business, not the infrastructure. Our team of TIER 1 professional’s in DEVops and TECHops will handle the day to day operations of your Cloud, Security and App deployment’s while your TEAM focus on Customer Service, Project Management and other items you choose to keep in house.
Cloud Computing lets you shift resources away from data center investments and operations and move them to innovative new projects. Specifically, you can have your scarce IT and engineering resources focus on projects that grow your business instead of having them focus on IT infrastructure – which is important but hardly ever differentiates your business.
Global and Regional Reach: Take your apps Global and Regionally in minutes versus years.
Whether you are a large global company or small start-up, you may have potential customers around the world. With traditional infrastructure, it’s hard to deliver great performance to a broadly distributed user base and most companies focus on one geographic region at a time to save costs and time. With Cloud Computing, the game changes – you can easily deploy your application in any or all of the nine AWS regions around the world. This means you can provide a lower latency and better experience for your customers at minimal cost.
While AWS and AZURE deliver some of the most comprehensive Cloud Computing solutions in the world, AWS and AZURE can be challenging to implement and administer, and the pricing can be extremely confusing and complex. Amazon and AZURE do not provide management or implementation support for its customers, all of the automation and comprehensive tools to optimize your costs, security and performance come from Training your team and using an MSSP like Quattra.
